Foodie – Consumption Monitor

Have you ever thought it would be interesting to track food consumption? Foodie is an IoT project that tracks your food usage over time. The project uses a number of weight sensors connected to an Arduino and Raspberry Pi to monitor the contents of your pantry or fridge. By creating a network of weight sensors the “Foodie” system can track the consumption of individual items and link this data to individual barcodes so that it can make reccomendations for your shopping list! To get started with this project check out the following link.


If you are working on a projected that requires interaction between an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi the team at SuperHouse Automation recommends the Freetronics PiLeven. The PiLeven is a 100% Arduino Uno  compatible board that is designed to fit perfectly onto your Raspberry Pi, adding a huge amount of potential functionality to your Raspberry Pi. For more information visit the PiLeven webpage.
