Short description: Methods to monitoring nutritional intake are slow and require a high level of commitment. Misreporting is common. Making information on food intake more usable requires considerably more automation: identifying the quantity and quality of food within a meal in an easy-to-move design.
Market potential: The global food services market is forecast to be close to € 3,000 billion in 2025 and CARG 9.1%. If the developed technology is portable, it will also open up a large consumer market.
Timing: We expect to see new solutions within 1-5 years.
Desired result: A hardware and/or software MVP/concept/solution to our challenge that could be evaluated in real data collection situations. It should be portable and reliable. The solution should be able to replace manual weight measurements or self-reporting questionnaires.
