Abstract
(EN)
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a refrigerator with which it is possible to manage food placed outside the refrigerator. To achieve this, the present invention provides a refrigerator comprising a storage chamber, a food sensor that detects food, and a communication module that transmits the information about the food detected by the food sensor to the outside of the refrigerator, wherein the food sensor detects the food outside the refrigerator. Preferably, the information transmitted by the communication module to the outside of the refrigerator includes information for identifying whether the food is outside or inside the refrigerator. Thus, it is possible to prevent duplicate purchases of unrefrigerated/unfrozen food and provide notification that regular ingredients in the kitchen or other areas are out of stock or running low. As a result, not only the usability by the user is improved, but also food loss and waste is reduced.

La présente invention a pour but de fournir un réfrigérateur permettant de gérer des aliments placés à l'extérieur du réfrigérateur. À cet effet, la présente invention concerne un réfrigérateur comprenant une chambre de stockage, un capteur d'aliments destiné à détecter des aliments, et un module de communication destiné à transmettre les informations concernant les aliments détectés par le capteur d'aliments vers l'extérieur du réfrigérateur, le capteur d'aliments détectant les aliments à l'extérieur du réfrigérateur. De préférence, les informations transmises par le module de communication vers l'extérieur du réfrigérateur comprennent des informations permettant d'identifier si les aliments sont à l'extérieur ou à l'intérieur du réfrigérateur. Ainsi, il est possible d'empêcher des achats en double d'aliments non réfrigérés/non congelés et de fournir une notification concernant des ingrédients habituels épuisés ou en quantité faible dans la cuisine ou dans d'autres zones. Par conséquent, non seulement la facilité d'utilisation par l'utilisateur est améliorée, mais la perte d'aliments et les déchets alimentaires sont également réduits.

本発明の目的は、庫外に置かれた食品の管理ができる冷蔵庫を提供することにある。そのために、本発明は、貯蔵室と、食品を検知する食品センサと、前記食品センサで検知した前記食品の情報を庫外に送信する通信モジュールと、を備えた冷蔵庫において、前記食品センサは、庫外にある食品を検知する。望ましくは、前記通信モジュールが庫外に送信する前記情報に、前記食品が庫外か庫内かを特定する情報が含まれる。これにより、冷蔵/冷凍していない食品の重複購入を防止したり、キッチン等の常備品のストック切れや減少を知らせたりすることができる。その結果、使用者の使い勝手が向上するだけでなく、食品ロスの低減にもつながる。
