No more surprises behind the door: Microsoft & Liebherr collaborate on smart refrigerators

  • Microsoft and Liebherr Collaborating on New Generation of Smart Refrigerators
  • The image result below shows an example image with labels of the food products detected (and confidence levels) overlaid.
  • Liebherr and Microsoft are actively improving these technologies to turn the newest generation of refrigerators into smart appliances that don’t just cool your food but interactively help you with your food management.
  • Microsoft is providing computer vision capability as part of this collaboration.
  • The process not only captures images for viewing but also recognizes individual food items inside the refrigerator.

As part of the Liebherr household appliances division’s digital initiative, Liebherr and Microsoft are collaborating in the development of Liebherr’s new generation of the SmartDeviceBox. This is a communication module which fits into Liebherr refrigerators and freezers, connecting them to the internet. The system is designed to have a long lifecycle: Modular units can be integrated and upgraded at any time in existing SmartDevice-ready appliances to create value and comfort for customers through new digital features and solutions.
