Making Food Packaging Intelligent, It’s All About Sensor Technology.

The Checkpack project showes great achievements in sensing packaged food. Ghent University’s Frank Devlieghere leads the development of the optical sensor solution, in a collaborative EU R&D scheme.
At the Sensor Conference ‘The Sense of Contact’ on December 13th, adjacent to the iMNC, Professor Devlieghere will give a lecture explaining the results of the Checkpack project and the road towards them.
In the same domain, Wageningen University & TNO are working on packaged fresh cut vegetables. Reading from your smartphone what the real quality is, makes you independent from biased ‘fresh until’ signs. That is where the project is aiming at.
Wageningen’s professor Ernst Woltering and Jos van der Vossen of TNO Quality of Life will clarify what they are researching and developing. Woltering will challenge sensor developers to come forward with proposals for sensors that can help to closing the last gap towards reliable, working applications.
