Abstract

In this paper, we propose a context-aware food recommendation system for well-being care applications. The proposed system, called u-BabSang, provides individualized food recommendation lists at the dining table, and is based dietary advice in the typical Korean medical text. Our proposed system receives a user’s profile, physiological signals, and environmental information around the dining table in real time. To operate our system, we present a method for user specified analysis, and also describe time-division layered context integration which integrates the multiple contexts obtained from the sensors. Thus, our system recommends appropriate foods for each individual’s health at the table in real time.
