The proposed project FRESQO aims at the development of an innovative methodology and an innovative product (hardware and software) that will allow the automatic recognition of the "freshness" of the most important fisheries species, in terms of commercial value in Greece, with the possibility of expansion to all tradable fisheries items. This product will consist of a small (portable) spectral camera, that will be analysis a simple photograph of the fish, and will provide the control and decision system (a small computer) which will be able to provide indications of the freshness of a fish. The camera will provide hyperspectral image analysis while in the control and decision system there will be a specialized software that will make use of the images that are taken and the data that will be stored in the system in advance and which are the learning background of the system.
