Claim of US Patent No. 10,219,330

1. An electronic oven, comprising:a chamber;
a microwave energy source coupled to an injection port in the chamber;
a visible light sensor;
an infrared light sensor;
a controller communicatively coupled to the visible light sensor, the infrared light sensor, and the microwave energy source; and
a non-transitory computer-readable medium on the controller that stores instructions to:
generate a preprocessed sensor dataset, wherein the generation of the preprocessed sensor dataset comprises: combining sensor data from the visible light sensor and sensor data from the infrared light sensor;
evaluate, using the preprocessed sensor dataset, the combined sensor data from the visible light sensor and sensor data from the infrared light sensor;
generate a splatter prediction in response to the evaluation of the combined sensor data from the visible light sensor and sensor data from the infrared light sensor; and
decrease a power level of the microwave energy source in response to the splatter prediction.
