Monitoring Fast Food Production
The purpose of the project is to automatically monitor a fast food employee as she puts together a sandwich. Having a system to perform this task would have many advantages for fast food customers and administration, like determining correctness of sandwich assembly, collecting statistics on employee performance and food safety inspection. In a controlled environment viewed by a static camera, the arms of the employee are tracked, and the program is able to determine when the employee has picked up a piece of food, and also when he puts it down.
