Smart Kitchen: Enhancing Kitchen Activitities

How can we show the added value of computer vision in an environment that people visit often? That was the task for the internship project of Brian Diephuis and you can see the result in this YouTube movie.

During his design process Brian managed to work out a lot of different possibilities and even tested some of them, like the vegetable recognizer. Eventually the decision was made to focus on the kitchen environment and to see what would be possible with a computer vision enhanced kitchen. In the demonstration video below you can see some interesting examples. By detecting several different objects on the kitchen counter the system can provide all sorts of information about the current state and give you suggestions and even show you where useful kitchen utensils are located. Although Brian’s internship has finished some time back we wanted to share the result of his work in this YouTube movie.
