Abstract: The proportion of water in the human body must keep at a proper level to maintain normal physiological action. Daily water consumption needs to be properly supplemented in time to protect health of human beings. Water consumption is related with age, body weight, temperature, physical activity, etc. These factors are generally difficult to express with crisp data to get accurate value of recommended daily water intake. The main objective of this paper is to build a recommended daily water intake system and a practical application using fuzzy reasoning methods. We also compared the actual recommended values with our system output values to find the differences. By designing an application on the Arduino platform and using Bluetooth electronic scale to connect to smart phones, we help people control daily water intake. The experiment results proved that the recommendation system is effective in actual applications.
