Empathic (ITEA 2~11005) project: “EMPATHIC PRODUCTS”

Aprašymas:

An empathic application that  recognizes consumer preferences based on a combination of emotional, behavioural and sensory information; provides more effective feedback from consumers about their food choices and helps to improve customer interaction with its consumers; and gives additional helpful information about food products.

Novelty.

EMPATHIC project outcomes:

  • Methodology for empathic (intentional & emotion enabled) applications in food market was created;
  • New models for exploiting sensory attributes & intention & emotion awareness of food consumers was formed;
  • Emotion & intention enabling technologies tested & validated in food market: baking and confectionary industries.

Study showed that Noldus FaceReader technology is sufficiently accurate to detect significant differences in facial expressions elicited by different food samples and can deliver additional information to conventional acceptance tests. The correlations obtained show that facial expressions are good indicators for self-reported liking.  Furthermore, emotions, attitude and behaviour interface model was designed, which can give a significant information about food products evaluation and food choice. Strong relationship between attitude and behaviour was also observed.

Aprašymas:

The main idea of the collaborative project „Re-design of the dairy industry for sustainable milk processing“ (SUSMILK) is to analyze and optimize the whole process chain for milk and milk products with regard to energy and water consumption.

The project aims at developing new concepts and technologies for the supply of heat, cold and power and integrating them into the respective process steps. The integration of innovative and efficient technologies into a “green dairy” concept that will aim at maximizing water and energy savings is a central part of the project.

Novelty.

  • The evaluation of the feasibility, efficiency, and economy of the technology developments to reduce the water and energy demand in the dairy to establish a resource efficient food processing.
  • Concepts based on research results to highlight the potential for recycling of energy and mass flows by transforming waste flows into valuable products.
  • A “green dairy” simulation tool based on all the data generated within the different pilot and demonstration plants, which will help engineers and the dairy industry to design new and to adapt existing facilities.

Development of a Working Model of an Innovative Hybrid Packaging 3D Printer

Aprašymas:

The device combines two well-known package forming methods. One of the methods is forming packages from polymer films.

As the 3D printer industry expands, they are now also used in packaging production; however, at the moment, packages produced by 3D printers are expensive.

Our device would combine the traditional method of forming packages from films with an innovative 3D printer technology.

It would expand the possibilities of packaging developers which would allow to create new optimum environmentally-friendly packages.

Novelty:

An innovative model for a hybrid package forming device is in progress by using 3D technology.

Method for Indoors Positioning of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Objects

Aprašymas:

Application of the method for indoors positioning of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) objects enables determination of a single object location by at least two access points capturing the object.

Positioning of WLAN object foresees application of positioning algorithm, which compares measured signal strength values and signal dissimilation model (map) for calculation of each access point, capturing the object.

Calculated position of the object is saved and extended in order to ensure the accuracy of positioning.
