Objective
The goal ofthis project is to develop a novel low-cost, wireless smart packaging system based on fully printed self-powered sensor-based RFID tags to monitor food quality and safety from packaging, transportation, storage, and distribution to retail along a food supply chain. To achieve this goal, the following five specific objectives will be achieved through performing these five tasks as follows: 1) Printing the flexible sensor array for food quality and safety detection; 2) Printing the RFID antenna for wireless tracking and communication; 3) Printing flexible batteries for the active sensor-RFID tag; 4) Integration of a smart packaging tag system; and 5) Evaluation of the integrated prototype system.
