FoodPhone™ Case: Advanced Vision Technology Turns Regular Mobile Phones into Precise Food & Nutrition Analysis Devices Using AI, 3D and Hyperspectral Approaches
The relevant information in many vision applications is encoded into the color of the scenery. This information in normal color cameras is extracted based on the three standard color channels; red, green and blue (RGB), respectively. This color reproduction technique is an approximation and it is often insufficient to reliably solve a given machine vision problem. Hyperspectral imaging overcomes this limitation by providing a greater number of spectral bands, while maintaining an adequate spatial resolution.
