The Internet of Things (IoT) is applicable even in the food industry, where a reported 52 percent of companies can take days or weeks to issue a recall of contaminated foodstuffs. Low-cost wireless sensor networks (WSNs) based on a variety of sensors, communication technology, and cloud software, can help food industry professionals monitor and record the status of food in transit to avoid waste and costly Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalls.
Specifically, this white paper by Monnit Corporation will teach food service industry professionals:
- About the food industry and government regulations that can prompt various types of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalls
- How the capabilities of a WSN can help the food industry meet industry and government food safety regulations
- How inexpensive WSNs based on a range of sensors and communications technologies can be implemented quickly and easily
