Training Food Service Technology

by Morgan Stevens

Researchers at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, a research university in Italy, and Electrolux Professional, a Swedish home appliance company, have created a dataset tracking movements cooks make while flipping food on a grill. The dataset contains information on 2,866 flipping motions made by four restaurant chefs and five home cooks, including the food involved, the type of utensil used to flip the food, the force and torque applied to utensils, and each chef’s pose and eye gaze. The researchers collected the data by attaching sensors that measure motion, force, torque, and temperature to utensils and filmed the chefs and home cooks flipping food with motion capture cameras and a wearable eye tracking headset.
