Samenvatting

This report details the activities carried out in 2019 in the KB DDHT project 8 “Exploring the potential of non-destructive and non-invasive sensor technologies in food supply chains”. It compiles all four deliverables of this project as a single narrative. There are five case studies at the core of this project which address animal welfare, indoor farming, inspection of fresh food products, personalized nutrition advise and food fraud detection. Multiple activities were planned in these case studies with main focus on sensor technologies for non-destructive and non-invasive sensing. One of the key activities was to conduct a survey of sensor technologies applicable and potentially suitable for each case study. In addition, for each case study, one or more experiments were conducted which involved data acquisition using novel sensors as well as building knowledge on data analysis of data from the new sensors. Furthermore, as one of the goal of this project is to explore new sensor technologies, it is expected that this project will generate valuable data. Therefore, focus was also on FAIR data sharing and management. A workshop was organized in collaboration with WDCC on this topic. Most of the case studies also aligned with OnePlanet Research centre, and as a result multiple experiments are in planning for 2020 in cooperation with OnePlanet.
