Fermentation temperature is an important factor which affects success of making fermented foods. Control of fermentation temperature by traditional manual method is not convenient. If fermentation temperature control becomes automatic, the manual working hours can be reduced. In general, one cannot monitor the fermentation temperature anytime and/or anywhere. This makes those who make fermented foods such as glutinous rice wine at home more inconvenient. The purpose of this study is to help those who need to go outside and then cannot monitor fermentation temperature 24 hours a day. This study develops a novel mobile control system for monitoring fermentation temperature and then controlling the cooler and heater for keeping fermentation temperature in the proper range. The process for controlling fermentation temperature will be automatic. The efficiency of making fermented foods at home can be improved. The ideal fermentation temperature can be remotely monitored and controlled.The proposed system will let those who make fermented foods such as glutinous rice wine at home monitors the fermentation temperature anywhere and anytime.
