Title: DEVICES AND METHODS INCLUDING BARE FEET IMAGES FOR WEIGHT MEASUREMENT
Abstract:
A device for weighing a user includes a weight sensor that determines a weight of the user, and a bare feet image sensor that generates an image of the bare feet of the user. The device includes a processor that is responsive to the weight sensor and to the bare feet image sensor and executes computer program instructions to perform operations such as identifying a provisioned user out of one or more provisioned users based on the image of the bare feet of the user standing on the device. A database stores information associated with the image of the bare feet of one or more provisioned users of the device. The weight of the user associated with the identified provisioned is stored. Related devices and methods are provided.
