Rubens Technologies is a Victorian startup addressing waste, sustainability and traceability problems of fruit and crops supply chains. Rubens Technologies has developed sensors and analytics to predict quality parameters of fruit and crops in real time, and without damaging the product.
Rubens is used to predict fruit and crop quality indicators, useful for growers to predict the optimal time for picking, to estimate optimal storage time and assess fruit for internal defects.
Rubens Technologies sensors are used to capture the ‘molecular fingerprint’ of a crop, which is uniquely related to quality, maturity and ripeness stage of that crop. Sensor data is then analysed in real time using machine learning models to provide actionable insights of the state of the fruit.
