Connected Kitchen

The way one uses a kitchen both shows and affect’s one’s health. When cooking for others, e.g. in a family or commercial kitchen, it also affects others’ health. This project explores multi-sensor systems that track and model the behaviour of one or more people in kitchen environments to identify behaviours linked to health and safety. It will also investigate how  the  sensing  environment  interacts  with different  commonly  used  products, develop  a prototype adaptive multi-sensor toolkit and perform user studies at the University before deployment in a domestic environment
