Our project partners from AZTI, AI Talentum, Flow Technology and INESC TECH informed the visitors about the mobile testbed and how companies of the canning industry can monitor their food loss and waste, optimise their water and energy consumption as well as how this data can be included in a predictive investment model for digital transformation.
“The sixth edition of the IOTSWC was a great platform to introduce our digitalised production testbed”, says Idoia Olabarrieta, Senior Researcher at AZTI and coordinator of the iFishCan project. “The positive feedback of our meeting partners confirms that our innovative technological solution addresses an important challenge in the food manufacturing industry.”
Canning industry in the spotlight
Focusing on improving the efficiency of the fish canning industry, the iFishCan testbed addresses small and medium-sized enterprises that want to reduce their food waste and their environmental impact. It consists of a low low-cost sensor network connected through an IIoT system, which collects data in real time; an advanced AI-engine coupled to a manufacturing execution system (MES) allows predicting different process indicators.
