Integration Of RFID And 4g Systems For Nearly Expired Food Notification
Today, people are provided with abundant basic necessities in advanced countries, but the other problem is:
waste of food. Even though recent studies show that some expired food is still edible,it is still better to consume the food
before it expires. Now a day, people are very busy for their work in industrial society. Therefore, many people like
purchasing a lot of food in the markets to stock up and cook for 1 week, even 1 month. That can be a good idea for busy
modern people because they might not have enough free time to buy fresh food everyday. Nevertheless, people could hardly
keep track the expiration date on every single item. Chances are: the food might already expire whenever they want to cook
or eat it. Thus, this research presents a design of RFID-based Nearly Expired Food Notification System with 4G Systems and
real-time SMS messages, the system is able to record food information in the Database. Also, it can send a SMS messages to
users’ cellphone or show food information on the monitors to notify people which food is about to expire. Not only can
people eat or cook fresh food, but also they will rarely waste expired food.
