TERAFOOD • A compact low-cost terahertz sensor to monitor food quality
The TERAFOOD project is developing a cheap compact sensor that can be placed in food packaging and used to check whether the contents are edible, thus reducing waste.
The project hopes to create a commercial sensor that can analyse the quality of packaged food.
The aim is to check the quality of individual packages, at any point in the process.
This project will have a significant impact on the regional cross-border economy by proposing a solution to help tackle the problem of food spoilage and waste in the food industry: a sector that generates wealth for the region.
