Abstract: Food security is the assured access to adequate food that is nutritious, of good quality, safe and meets cultural needs. In food production industries, performing visits for 24 hours evaluation is a difficult and time consuming process. In order to improve monitoring level for food industries, an intelligent system has been designed. Eight analog parameters Temperature, PH, humidity, water activity, redox potential, pressure, concentration and CO2 are monitored. The data acquisition is done through eight analog potentiometers and the parameters are monitored using FPGA. The developed system has been tested with RTD temperature sensors and information is transmitted through wireless communication to user mobile at remote place if any failures occur in the system. Thus for good food quality, FPGA and GSM based remote monitoring is performed to improve the status of production. The work represents the idea of real time monitoring and control of multi sensors food security application. The system is low cost, flexible, fast and reconfigurable.
