Two universities have joined forces to develop a tamper-proof, cloud-based RFID traceability system, tailored toward the food industry. Initial pilot projects are focused on the poultry industry, and cover production from processing plant to consumer. The system is based on a combination of RFID temperature-logging and geo-locationary systems, cloud-based decision-support systems and smartphone technology. Researchers are now testing epi-biometrics on chicken fillets. Learn how the solution relies on a combination of RFID and smartphone technologies to facilitate the provision of temperature and location details at the batch level, thereby establishing a secure chain of custody from processing plant to consumer.
