摘要：Adulteration in honey may cause various complications in human health.This paper proposed an ultrasonic sensing system for detecting mixture of water and sugar adulteration in honey.The system used a simple ultrasonic sensor which is non-invasive compared to previous studies and procedures for adulteration detection.The system was calibrated with honey from Pampanga,Philippines,which were then tested in a laboratory for authenticity before deliberately adulterated for testing.The system is calibrated and optimized with honey samples from 0% adulteration to 40% adulteration with 10% interval.The gathered data was used to generate an equation to calculate the percent amount of adulteration in honey.The equation is y=-1.3507 x+743.89.The system accuracy obtained during actual testing which is 92.38%.The system is delimited only to a specific variant of honey present in Pampanga.
