Abstract

Obesity has become a severe health problem in developed countries, and a healthy food intake has been recognized as the key factor for obesity prevention. This paper presents a mobile phone based system, DietCam, to help assess food intakes with few human interventions. DietCam only requires users to take three images or a short video around the meal, then it will do the rest. The experiments of DietCam in real restaurants verify the possibility of food recognition with vision techniques. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
