Automatic Dietary Monitoring using Wearable Accessories

Title: Automatic Dietary Monitoring using Wearable Accessories

Authors: Giovanni Schiboni, Oliver Amft


This chapter provides an introduction to the field of Automatic Dietary Monitoring (ADM) that intends to derive diet-related behaviour information from unobtrusive sensors and data analysis algorithms. A conceptual gap found in most literature reviews on the relation of physiology and dietary activities is filled. A consistent knowledge-based physiological model for dietary activities is presented. A biomedical approach is adopted to retrieve phenomenological insights of the food preparation, intake, and digestion processes. A taxonomy of dietary activities, and a literature review of wearable sensing approaches and dietary dimensions across all dietary activities are also presented.
