This forthcoming book will provide an abundance of valuable information on different sensing techniques for fruits and vegetables. It will cover emerging technologies, such as NMR, MRI, wireless sensor networks (WSN), and radio-frequency identification (RFID) and their potential for industrial applications.

Currently, a number of new sensor technologies based on electromagnetic properties have emerged, and great progress has also been made on other existing sensor technologies. These include X-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) or magnetic resonant imaging (MRI), fluorescence, and other related developments, such as electrical impedance and permittivity (mainly microwave), thermal sensing, and selective gas/volatile sensing. These developments have opened new areas of research as well as new applications for sensing quality of fruits and vegetables.

Key features of the volume:
• Provides an inclusive review of the developments of sensors for quality analysis and inspection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
• Fosters an understanding of the basic sensing techniques for quality assessment of fresh fruits and vegetables, including further technological development.
• Covers advanced sensing technologies, including computer vision, spectroscopy, X-rays, magnetic resonance, mechanical contact, wireless sensor networks, and radio-frequency identification sensors.
• Reviews the significant progress in the sensor development of noninvasive techniques for quality assessment of fruits and vegetables.
• Presents the current status of different sensing systems in the context of commercial application and potentials of these sensing technologies for fruits and vegetables.


This volume is dedicated solely to the application of sensor technology for evaluation of quality of fruits and vegetables and will be a rich resource for professors/lecturers teaching sensor technology for food technology courses; researchers who work on sensor development, agriculture and food technology; students in related areas, and industry professionals.
