Low-cost Smart Refrigerator

This paper presents Smart Home concepts for Internet of Things (IoT) technologies that will make life at home more convenient. In this paper, we first describe the overall design of a low-cost Smart Refrigerator built with Raspberry Pi. Next, we explain two sensors controlling each camera, which are hooked up to our Rasberry Pi board. We further show how the user can use the Graphical User Interface (GUI) to interact with our system. With this Smart Home and Internet of Things technology, a user-friendly graphical user interface, prompt data synchronization among multiple devices, and real-time actual images captured from the refrigerator, our system can easily assist a family to reduce food waste.
