 The goal of this project is to create a software
application that is accessible to everyone.
 Recipe creation with available ingredients
 OCR used in tandem
 Android will be the platform,
as we will be using Java
 Personal Food Inventory Management
-make shopping lists?
-collaboration with grocery stores?
* Allows organization of lists by aisle
* Place order for pick up at some stores
* More accurate receipt information from DB
-notify when certain ingredients get low
 Exploring possible recipes
-Use the internet to obtain recipes matching
current inventory
-Keep recipes locally or in a cloud?
-Specific dietary constraints/guidelines?
 Meal planning
-Set up recipes for multiple days at a time
-Specify how many meals per day?
-Specify the sizes/focuses of meals?
 OCR – is basically the ability to scan receipts (or any
type of document) and have the words automatically
recognized by the phone to be used in searching for
recipes.
 We have two options of how to pursue OCR:
-Open source Java OCR implementation
* Requires “training” to specific fonts
as part of development
-Third party OCR app
* Add-in functionality only
*Emphasize need for redundancy
 Creating an app on the Android platform
 OCR errors
 Abbreviation/Receipt code discrepancies
-learn from user?
-learn from the store’s database(?)
 Finding Recipes
-limited use of google search API?
-other avenues?
-central web architecture?
 Using the app to work with the camera
 This project has the potential for overwhelming
complexity, so we must constrain ourselves within the
assigned project deadlines.
 At several stages compromises are possible, but higher
levels of functionality are also desirable.
-Keep these goals in mind while developing architecture!
-A few major design decisions must be settled prior to
significant modeling efforts
* OCR integration methods
* Major avenues of recipe aggregation
* Cross-platform: Extension to Iphone support?
