This project aims to develop a high cost-effective system for food supply chain management system and connect our farmers, crop storage owners and government. The proposed solution uses IoT & AI enabled technology to monitor the food (crops) stored in the supply chain inventories. It provides status about the quality (state of deterioration) and estimate stock value/price of stored crop based on the environmental conditions of the storage unit. This solution helps in reducing workman hours and minimizing human error.
Cold storages condition in India are pathetic and crops face 20-30% of post-harvest losses. This loss can be compensated by using cold storages with IoT and AI application so that the farmer/cold storage owner and government face less loss and therefore can optimize the income and decrease the post-harvest losses.
