Development of a Mobile Augmented Reality Dietary System
This paper describes a mobile dietary analysis tool developed with augmented reality (AR) technology. The mobile
AR dietary system aims to help accurate assessment of the nutrient contents of food intakes. It consists of 2 databases: (1) the
nutrient composition of food contents, and (2) personal journals of food intake. The nutrient contents for food intake are
accumulated on a daily basis. To assist appropriate dietary intake, one can use one’s own mobile device to scan photos
correspondent with the food (university cafeteria), retrieve augmented information from the cloud, check for total nutrient
intake for the current day, and reference recommended intake standards. Using this self-assessment tool, students are able to
regulate their food intake based on daily nutrient standards. Along with implementation, an inquiry-based exploration model is
suggested for future learning and adoption.
