Reducing fruit waste

Fruit Grading with Microwave Sensing.

frεsco is a novel sensing technique, that allows to check the internal quality of fresh fruits, without destroying them. It is based on low energy microwave measurements, so that the sensor can look  deep inside  the fruit without modifying it. In this way it is possible to define  several quality attributes , as well as defining ripeness stage, internal defects and shelf life, in a  single measurement .
