Data-driven ICT platforms and traceability solutions to improve the quality and sustainability of Mediterranean Crops
Topic 1.3.1 (IA) Valorising the health benefits of Traditional Mediterranean food products Topic 2.3.1 (RIA) New optimization models of the agro food supply chain system to fair price for consumers and reasonable profit share for farmers
We are looking for cooperation with partners from the entire agri-food supply chain, including SMEs (e.g. Partners specialized in dissemination activities), food processors (e.g. Mills), and Research Organizations specialized in Distributed Ledger Technologies (e.g. Blockchain), to enable digital technology solutions for a transition towards sustainable, resilient, and traceable agri-food systems.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Centaur develops smart sensors that are installed inside bulk storage facilities (silos, warehouses) to offer monitoring and control of the storage conditions, aeration optimization, and precision pest management for cereals and other agricultural products.
Furthermore, Centaur uses advanced sensing technology to offer unique identification of each batch of received ingredients and extract data, such as truck number, quantity, date and time of reception, source or producer, etc. Continuous flows of sensor data will be used to track and forecast potentially harmful situations that may compromise the product. Besides its predictive capabilities, Centaur’s cloud platform includes a user-friendly mechanism for automated warning generation associated with specific conditions or a combination of events reported by the sensors.
