on is used to light the product during the reading of the light spectrum (the colour) which means that readings have to be made in a short time period and repeated weekly. The partners decided that the light receiver and the digitiser should be separated and the light spectrum should be transmitted through a fibre optical cable. They used a system of constant illumination to make the reading more stable.

The partners drew on three years of previous research they had carried out developing a product which controlled the composition of fats and proteins during a production process. Unlike other colour spectrometers on the market, the partners wanted to give factories an instrument that could be used on production lines rather than exclusively in laboratories so that factory lines could be closely monitored and adjusted in real time.

The challenges of developing that were considerable, recalls Yann Franchet, who runs EDIT. "In a laboratory you have a protected environment and you adapt that to the colour spectrometer," he says. "In the factory, in the winter it can be cold and in the summer hot, there is dust and so on, so you have to adapt the colour spectrometer to the conditions in the factory."

The research involved numerous mathematical formulas, close liaison between the partners and extensive testing. But finally a successful prototype was developed for a product which could be manufactured and sold at 25,000 euros, instead of the 100,000 euro cost of other colour spectrometers on the market. EDIT's software allows different types of factories to set the machine to control the colour they want. "The user will be able to see three values corresponding to the colour and to see those on their computer in order to say 'my product is okay'," says Franchet.

The colour spectrometer opens up fresh markets for each of the three partners. "We have postponed commercialisation a bit because of the crisis but once things improve we will
