FREMONT, CA: Several ideas and applications to ensure the quality and safety of the food products by Big Data and IoT are mentioned below

Tracing Shipment with IoT:

Advanced IoT sensors, RFID, and bar-codes are produced to extract detailed information and track the shipped food items. The functionality of the sensors can significantly increase food safety, the ability to identify even small dust specks and monitor environmental conditions such as temperature. Sensors can also deliver real-time data, thus guaranteeing optimal conditions highlighted by safety guidelines.

IoT in Investigation:

IoT technology can supervise and conduct superior quality tracking and can carry out investigations to pinpoint the exact location of contamination.

Adding of Big Data:

IoT, with the aid of Big Data technology, can analyze and assemble the data to recognize patterns of food-safety failures, assists in tracking failure points, and also predict the reason for food spoilage.


Recognition of natural disasters, with the help of Big Data from historical patterns analysis, can result in preventing food-related accidents and utilizing products beneficially. Certain environmental conditions cannot be encouraged because of the contamination of food products that will result in them being branded unsafe for consumption.

Genetic Indexing:

Genetic Indexing can be carried out with Big Data technology as it differentiates and understands the correlation between DNA and RNA. IoT can be used to track the source of the bacteria, which is identified by Big Data.

Storage safety with Big Data and IoT:

Most of the food storage facilities face the same crisis — infestation with rats — that bring down the quality of the food product regardless of the source. Real-time data from the IoT sensors can be used to monitor, control, and prevent any conditions that jeopardize the quality of food products. Food Safety with Big Data…
