Felix visits Australia for the 2017 Australian Mango Conference
At the 2017 Australian Mango Conference, Felix Instruments-Applied Food Science unveiled the very first demonstration of their newest feature of the F-750 Produce Quality Meter: Fruit Maps.
In collaboration with a research team at Central Queensland University, Felix Scientists have been applying NIR (Near Infrared) spectroscopy practices in gauging and predicting mango maturity. With the collected data on Calypso Mangoes, the team has created a demonstration model of Fruit Maps.
Fruit Maps is an app designed by the Felix Instruments-Applied Food Science team that allows farmers and F-750 users to apply stored data to gauge and predict fruit maturity en masse. Using satellite imaging, Fruit Maps provides an aerial view of a user's entire farm. The app then allows the user to draw sections in the farm as preferred, and distinguish harvest times based on collected data.
Fruit Maps uses algorithms and information entered to show current maturity, as well as predict peak harvest times for each farmer's lot.
While Fruit Maps is not available for market use yet, Felix Instruments-Applied Food Science is working hard to announce an available version for use in the near future.
