Mobile monitoring of food transport

By Jakob Šalej

Abstract

Despite the great progress made in food transportation, goods are still being thrown away before they even reach consumers. One of the main reasons for that is inadequate monitoring of transports. With growing demand for both fresh and frozen products, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure adequate conditions, mainly appropriate temperature and humidity. This need for better monitoring puts more pressure on those responsible for transport. We designed a mobile monitoring of food transport using a single device, which is nowadays within everybody's reach - a smartphone. GPS location of the device will be used to retrieve temperature and humidity data using web services. A mobile application running on Android operating system will allow users to monitor and store data of each transport, analyze critical points in transport, and report abnormal events. During development, we focused on implementation of a transparent user interface that gives the user a relevant information about the transport and issues real-time alerts, when conditions are sub-optimal
