PAIDI groups in the Unit:

This unit focuses on research in the virgin olive oil extraction process through Advanced Automation, mainly based on the incorporation of sensors. The objective is to optimize the production process through the implementation of advanced techniques that measure and control the production process. For this aim, it studies the use of computer vision applied to quality control, or other sensors, such as the electronic nose for determining relationships between consumer tastes and the organoleptic properties of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
