We participated in the final conference of the project "Development of an Expert System for the Management of Food Production and Processing Management (ESIA – Expert System for Intelligent Agriculture)" held at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek (FERIT). This project, valued at 8,767,001.53 HRK, was predominantly co-financed by the EU Structural and Investment Fund and has resulted in numerous successes over its three-year implementation.
More about the conference itself can be learned from the participants' media statements featured on the Osijek Television news broadcast.

In collaboration with FERIT, the project lead and partner, we crafted an innovative solution for the digitalization and improvement of wine production and processing processes. In collaboration with winemakers, we created a web platform tailored specifically to meet their needs. This platform enables seamless access to all production data through web browsers and smartphones, enabling transparent tracking and informed management of the wine production process. For more information about the project itself, visit the official ESIA website.


Our developer, Marin Gaće, presented the created web platform and all of its attributes. He presented comprehensive information on all included features such as the platform settings, users, offices, vineyards, cellars, wine containers, devices, recipes, and data analysis. To learn more about the entire project, visit our ESIA showcase.


Recognizing the diverse factors that influence the quality and organoleptic properties of wine, FERIT has developed devices capable of automatic measurements of crucial variables such as wine temperature, sugar levels, alcohol content, and SO2. Such devices enable remote monitoring of key winemaking factors while simultaneously providing accurate measurement data that can be recorded, analyzed, and archived. Conference participants had the opportunity to take a closer look at these devices, examining their cases and components.

In order to ensure a clean and functional design, we have crafted a 3D printable case model that encompasses and protects all electrical components from environmental impacts. Using this approach, IoT devices remain functional, providing continuous monitoring and measurement of data stored within the web platform.


We would like to thank FERIT and all members of the project and research team for their collaboration through this multi-year project and express our satisfaction with the achieved results. We would also like to thank all members of the Gauss team who, through their dedicated work, successfully delivered every project requirement. We are proud to have collaborated on a project that facilitates a modern approach to winemaking, transforming our agriculture.
