In this embodiment, the thermoelectric power generation device that the air conditioner set up can utilize the temperature difference potential energy to produce electric energy, and its principle is that using thomson to be less than producing electric energy, and the physics explanation of thomson effect is: when the temperature in the metal is not uniform, the kinetic energy of free electrons at a high temperature is greater than that of free electrons at a low temperature. Like a gas, thermal diffusion occurs when the temperature is not uniform, so that free electrons diffuse from the high temperature end to the low temperature end, and accumulate at the low temperature end, thereby forming an electric field in the conductor, and inducing a potential difference across the metal rod.

Specifically, the method for identifying the type of the refrigerated goods according to the image information of the refrigerated goods comprises the following steps: matching the collected image information of the refrigerated goods with a preset image set; the image set is prestored with at least one image of the object of which the category is determined; and determining the category corresponding to the article successfully matched with the image information of the refrigerated article as the category of the refrigerated article.
The air conditioner of the application is pre-stored with an image of a refrigerated item and a database of the type of the refrigerated item associated with the image; after the image information is collected by the image collecting equipment, each refrigerated article in the same image can be decomposed into a plurality of independent images corresponding to different refrigerated articles by extracting and analyzing the edge characteristics of the outer contour of each refrigerated article in the image information; and then the individual images are matched with the pre-stored refrigerated goods in the database, so that the images of the pre-stored refrigerated goods corresponding to the refrigerated goods in the database can be determined, and the category of the refrigerated goods can be further determined.
For example, the refrigerated items in which images are pre-stored in the database include: apple, cabbage, cola, beefsteak and the like, and the corresponding related varieties are fruits, vegetables, beverages and meat respectively.

Thus, based on the setting of the priority relations corresponding to different categories in the refrigerated goods, certain categories of goods can be refrigerated in a targeted manner, and if fruits are not stored durably compared with other three categories, the priority of the fruits is set to be the highest.
Optionally, the refrigeration method of the present invention further comprises: when the fact that the cabinet door of the refrigerating chamber is closed is sensed, the image acquisition equipment acquires the whole image of the refrigerated goods in the refrigerating chamber, and can be compared with the latest image acquired before the cabinet door is opened at this time, so that the increase and decrease results of the refrigerated goods are determined, and the new independent image of the refrigerated goods is extracted; and adjusting the refrigeration parameters of the refrigeration chamber based on the type of the newly added refrigerated goods.
Here, as for the article stored in the refrigerating chamber, since it has been stored in the refrigerating chamber for a certain time, its own temperature is also similar to the previous refrigerating temperature; and for the newly added refrigerated goods, the temperature of the newly added refrigerated goods is close to the indoor temperature, so that after the refrigerated goods are newly added in the refrigerating chamber, the refrigerating chamber preferentially adjusts the refrigerating parameters according to the frequency of the newly added refrigerated goods, so that the newly added refrigerated goods can reach the adaptive refrigerating state as soon as possible.
Here, when the newly added refrigerated item includes a plurality of categories, the refrigeration parameter of the refrigeration chamber is determined in accordance with the foregoing priority relationship.
In an alternative embodiment, the refrigeration method of the present application further comprises: determining user information of the currently executed article refrigeration behavior; calling historical parameter data of the current category of refrigerated goods by the user according to the user information; the refrigeration parameters of the refrigeration chamber are adjusted based on the historical data.
