Field testing and evaluation of sensor technology for wool bales
The differences between the environment, surface and core bale temperature and humidity have implications for the prediction of foot and mouth disease virus (MDV) survival in wool bales under different environmental conditions and along the supply chain.
This project evaluates the ability of DIGIBALE Bluetooth beacon sensors to track and measure the temperature and relative humidity (RH) of the environment and wool in the supply chain. A model to predict the internal core bale temperature was also investigated. Further work is required to determine the effects of environmental conditions at shearing on temperature and humidity in wool at baling.
