We decided on the electronics for the project and the way they would affect the functioning of the product. It is shown below, we also specified the components and have ordered those we did not have already.
We would like to finish this project ready for demo in May 2017. There are three aspects: software (an Android app), electronics (a PCB/or perf board) and casing (3D print).
We looked for food recipe APIs that we could use for the project, but could not find any that were useful to parse for the information we needed. Our project required getting the steps for cooking a dish, as well as the timing for each step.
Moving on, we decided on two recipes to use for this demo. The plan is to build on this later. The recipes are:
Fettuccine Carbonara: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/42585/fettuccini-carbonara/
We will adapt both to use in the app.
There are different pot sizes, and manufacturers often make up their sizes as they go. We decided to use these 7 as our standard: http://www.seriouseats.com/2011/01/equipment-the-7-most-essential-pots-and-pans.html
And only design for those 7 pots.
