The project was developed during the summer term
at the University of Applied Sciences in Schwäbisch
It deals with the process of food management in a
futuristic scenario where RFID tags are printable.
In this scenario, the data stored on the RFID tags is
put at the users' disposal by an interactive terminal.
Naturally, the most useful area of application for this
technology is the place where perishable goods are
kept in  -  the refrigerator. The terminal has a large
front which serves as a touch display to gain access
to the desired information. Important information, such
as soon decaying foods, are apparent at first sight.
Thus the user doesn't have to interact with the system
to receive essential information - unless he chooses
to do so. Additional information like a digital
cook-book, shopping facilities or an indication for
missing groceries is just a finger tip away. Hence, the
refrigerator becomes an information terminal for food
management. All information is available in one place
and can be retrieved briefly. Through the connection
with other kitchen equipment and nearby markets
further services are opened.
In order to proof the concept, we built a prototype
which is able to display and to process an operation
process. Thus we were able to test a part of our
concept on a functional refrigerator which made it
possible to detect problems within the concept and
to improve it afterwards.
Realized with vvvv and Arduino.
