Title (EN) SELF-SHOPPING REFRIGERATOR
(FR) RÉFRIGÉRATEUR À AUTO-ACHAT
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a refrigerator system (200), a method and a software program product for controlling and/or advising a diet for a user. The refrigerator system has a refrigerator (225, 226, 227, or 228) including a light (230, 231, 232, or 233) and a camera (235, 236, 237, or 238) that captures an image of contents of the refrigerator. The image is processed by a graphics processing unit (GPU) integrated with the refrigerator and/or a cloud server. The GPU (210 or 240) analyses the image to recognise a quantity, a quality, and/or a kind of food articles and/or food packages such as, vegetables, fruits, beverages, etc. A central processing unit (CPU)/GPU of the refrigerator provides diet plans, recipe recommendations, identifies grocery replenishment requirements, updates and shares shopping lists with food delivery agents, etc., based on the analysis of the refrigerator contents. The invention helps in minimizing food wastage, expanding meal options considering expiry dates, and maximizing benefits of a healthy diet by 20 recommending and controlling the user's diet.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de réfrigérateur (200), un procédé et un progiciel pour contrôler et/ou conseiller un régime alimentaire pour un utilisateur. Le système de réfrigérateur comprend un réfrigérateur (225, 226, 227, ou 228) comprenant une lumière (230, 231, 232, ou 233) et une caméra (235, 236, 237, 238) qui capture une image du contenu du réfrigérateur. L'image est traitée par une unité de traitement graphique (GPU) intégrée au réfrigérateur et/ou à un serveur en nuage. La GPU (210 or 240) analyse l'image pour reconnaître une quantité, une qualité et/ou un type d'articles alimentaires et/ou d'emballages alimentaires tels que des légumes, des fruits, des boissons, etc. Une unité centrale de traitement (CPU)/GPU du réfrigérateur fournit des plans de régime, des recommandations de recette, identifie des exigences de réapprovisionnement d'épicerie, met à jour et partage des listes d'achats avec des agents de distribution d'aliments, etc. sur la base de l'analyse des contenus de réfrigérateur. L'invention aide à réduire au minimum le gaspillage d'aliments, à étendre les options de repas en tenant compte des dates d'expiration, et à maximiser les avantages d'un régime sain par 20 recommandation et commande du régime de l'utilisateur.
