WG2Industry - A qualidade do vinho é amplamente determinada pela monitorização de parâmetros-chave durante o seu processo de produção, que influenciam largamente a evolução da uva/mosto/vinho durante a fermentação e maturação.

O controlo de parâmetros físicos e químicos como temperatura, nível e densidade durante estas fases críticas é, normalmente, realizada através de um processo offline, por amostragem em laboratório. Por ser uma atividade nuclear no processo de vinificação, a monitorização de parâmetros chave para a qualidade do vinho tende a ser substituída por processos automatizados, reduzindo os custos operacionais associados à análise laboratorial nas fases críticas de fermentação e maturação do vinho e eliminado erros de precisão que levam a tomadas de decisões erradas e, portanto, influenciam negativamente a qualidade do vinho.

Research-01

Winegrid+ introduces the concept of "precision oenology" in a competitive market with a strong export orientation such as of wine, which recognizes the importance of technological advances in improving its processes. Through this R & D project, Watgrid intends to improve the sensory capacities of the sensor units (evaluation of additional parameters such as total sugars, total phenolic index, temperature, pH, total acids) and to integrate into the system a monitoring platform consisting of sensors, Analytical software for real-time data processing, classification and anomaly detection, with inter-operability and big data analysis mechanisms.
