In the world of food waste, engineers have come together to try and find solutions. The article, The World Has A Food-Waste Problem. Can This Wireless Tech Help Fix It?, describes a new way engineers have come together to create high frequency wireless technology to measure and determine food quality. This new technology can look under the surface of a piece of fruit and find out the quality of that fruit. It uses fine-grain ripeness measurements using sub-terahertz band that can scan food on a conveyor belt to determine ripeness or any other details about the fruit. It can tell if there is anything wrong with the fruit past the skin, or if there are any diseases or decay within the fruit. This technology is being extended into meats and beverages as well. The goal of this technology is to reduce greenhouse emissions, feed the population, and reduce malnutrition.
