Abstract

Our project introduces the concept of “detached monitoring” in a context-adaptive cooking system. The system has two parts: the Rat, a device mounted above the stove and the Hat, an augmented reality (AR) headset worn by the user. The Rat provides information about the user's actions and the food being cooked. This information, combined with information from the Hat, is used to determine the user's context. Instructions and status information are then embedded in the user's environment via the Hat. The system was piloted with 7 participants in a kitchen setting. The results indicated that users found the tasks easier the more detached monitoring it incorporated, and, overall, found detached monitoring to be intuitive.
