Food spoilage detector

Modern people are busy with their work, and they seldom have leisure time to go shopping. So, whenever they go to the supermarket, they always buy a lot of food and store it in the refrigerator. When food is stored for a long time, they become unfresh or even spoiled.
This causes the serious waste of food, and the waste exists in many families.
The concept design uses sensitive sensors to detect and analyze the gas environment in refrigerators or food storage cabinets to judge whether the food is spoiling or not and prompt the user to eat or discard the food immediately. So as to effectively reduce food waste!
