  2. 2. Sensors in Food and Agriculture Organised by: Supported by: Commercial Sponsor: 2
  3. 3. Welcome Sensor technology is ubiquitous. Today, sensors are found in the home, cars, cities, hospitals and in many manufacturing processes. They also are having an increasingly important role in agriculture and food production. Sensors in Food and Agriculture brought together academic and commercial experts to discuss current applications and future opportunities for sensor technology in the food supply chain. This slide presentation is a concise summary of the Conference proceedings for delegates and for those who were unable to join us. I hope you will find it informative.

  41. 41. Delegates Approved “The Food Standards Agency found the conference to be very useful. The Agency is interested in whether sensor technology may offer the opportunity to improve its regulatory approach, and enable consumers’ interests to be better protected whilst reducing regulatory burdens, so it was invaluable to gain a better understanding of cutting edge work in this area.” Robin Linacre, The Food Standards Agency. “Many thanks for organising a good conference – great talks and a number of good contacts made. It definitely broadened my knowledge of sensors and applications in the agri food space.” Mike Simms, NeuDrive Ltd. “The SIFAA conference struck a balance of great speakers and panel members presenting interesting content and ideas, valuable networking opportunities, and a pleasant environment. As always with a Sensor100 organised event, the attention to detail, and commitment to delegates, speakers and exhibitors, made it enjoyable too.” Leonie Hilliard, Scienion. 41
