Devices To Sense Ripeness Of Fruit To Prevent Spoilage



sensor, measure fruits ripeness
A group of MIT students, headed by their professor built a new sensor device able to detect ripeness in fruits and vegetables. The gadget senses Ethylene gas molecules primarily responsible for the ripening of fruits and vegetables. Timothy Swager (the MIT professor), says grocers and retailers are to benefit from this invention as they often lose their stock due to over ripening and spoilage.

The research project, executed through Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies at MIT, was funded by U.S. Army Office of Research. The technology behind this sensor is a range of thousands of carbon nanotubes fixed together in a shape of a sheet. The researchers also constructed a gadget to ensure cheap manufacturing cost, meaning that consumers will be able to obtain them dirt cheap too.
