We wanted to play a small part in reducing food wastage through a medium that plays on what everyone is familiar with.
What it does
(The plan) Create a holistic food manager app able to take inventory and send reminders for approaching expiration dates.
How we built it
Android Studio patched with various libraries like webkit to connect with Microsoft Azure Computer Vision API, simple.JSON, etc.
Challenges we ran into
Lack of team experience with Android Studio
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The app can analyze an image, write relevant information to a JSON file on the Android device, and read from that file.
What we learned
Make sure your team members have their build tools beforehand!
What's next for foodd
Perhaps future development on our own.
