Short summary
This paper discusses the deployment of an internet of things (IoT)-based model to monitor the fermentation of tea in a tea factory in Kenya. The model uses deep learning to detect the optimum fermentation of tea as fermentation progresses. To further improve on the results, a majority voting technique based on regions is used. The model shows promising results, and its predictions correlated well with those of the experts.
