The project "DigiFoods - Digital Food Quality" will build fundamental knowledge on the technology needed for optimal raw material utilization and sustainable food production. The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) aims at optimisation of processes through the adoption of new digital tools including flexible data clouds, machine learning, artificial intelligence, smart sensors, robotics, and the concept of Internet of Things (IoT). It is envisioned that real-time analysis and utilization of large-scale industrial data, collected from connected sensors and machines, will significantly increase productivity and reduce food loss. DigiFoods will be the first centre with vital research elements that will inspire and mobilize Norwegian food industries towards industry 4.0.
This is a collaborative project together with research partners from Nofima, Sintef, Ulm University, The Polytechnic University of Valencia, and University of Lincoln, and industrial partners from Tine, Nortura, Prediktor Instruments AS, Norsk Elektro Optikk AS, Camo Analytics AS, Idletechs AS, International Business Machines AS, Norilia AS, Maritech Systems AS, RobotNorge AS, Lerøy Aurora AS, CGI Norway, Biomega Group AS, Nanoplus Nanosystems and Technologies GmbH, MarqMetrix Inc, HOFF SA, Havfisk AS, Saga Robotics, OptoPrecision GmbH, Lerøy Norway Seafoods AS og Intelecy.
The project will be coordinated by Nofima by the project manager Jens Petter Wold. Congratulations Volha Shapaval, Achim Kohler, Valeria Tafintseva, Boris Zimmermann, Kristian Hovde Liland, Oliver Tomic, and Pål Johan From.
