The topics of the partners
Fraunhofer Institute: Security in the supply chain
The Fraunhofer Institutes EMFT, AISEC and ESK work together with partners from science and industry within the framework of the high performance center “Secure Connected Systems” to develop solutions for monitoring processes in the production, transport and storage of food. One key topic is the development of concepts for integration of smart, energy-efficient sensors in food packaging to measure environmental influences and the freshness of food. Reliable data analysis and secure, targeted data transfer will then enable information evaluation for various participants in the value chain right up to the end customer. At the fair, an interactive exhibit will be shown to demonstrate the implementation of a holistic and seamless supply chain tracking system.
