Abstract

Two-thirds of food waste at home is due to food going bad before it is used. Mitigating this food waste would mean keeping track of groceries’ shelf lives, which is a time sink. Our solution is a grocery monitoring system that tracks grocery items, saves time, and makes meal planning more convenient and efficient through recipe recommendation. Tracking groceries is accomplished through using a camera in tandem with weight sensors. Grocery items are identified using computer vision to avoid the tedium of manually inputting grocery information. With the data collected, a dashboard is generated with groceries currently on the scale and their associated image.
