Portable Radars Guarantee Dairy Quality

Portable Radars Guarantee Dairy Quality

Professor Tzyy-Sheng Hong of the Department of Electrical Engineering spent 6 years developing portable raders, garnering the interest of an American dairy system developer. The two parties signed a licensing contract worth US$2 million and an additional 3% royalty from annual global sales, which became the largest technology transfer in the history of the Taiwanese information and communications industry. This innovation can remotely and precisely detect the physiological conditions of animals and detect the presence of abnormalities. Because the portable raders detect the heartbeat, pulse, and breath, the physiological conditions of animals can be consistently monitored, enabling effective control of the quality of animal products by preventing infected meat and dairy from entering into the market.
