A Global Fresh Food Tracking Service Based on Novel Wireless Sensor and RFID Technologies
2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
A global fresh food tracking service is presented, in which a set of real-time primary environmental conditions for transport of fresh fruits and vegetables, including global position, temperature, relative humidity, concentrations of CO2, O2 and ethylene gases and 3-axis acceleration, is collected through mobile and remotely controllable wireless sensor nodes. Real time monitoring, tracking, alarming, close-loop controlling and information sharing could therefore be provided as WEB services with service oriental architecture. Fully functioned hardware modules, protocols and system software have been developed. A 50-day field test has been successfully carried out, proving the system concept and the robustness of hardware and software designed. Due to its worldwide deploy-ability and added-values to fresh food supply chain, it is now feasible to establish a practical fresh food tracking service business.
