The conventional way of analyzing urine colour is done by visual examination, which is often paired with urine clarity. A visual examination of urine for its colour and clarity is done to identify abnormal urine colouration, the darkness of the urine, blood in the urine, foamy urine, etc. The naked eye is used to know how clear or cloudy and the colouration of urine. It employs physical, microscopic, and chemical examination of urine. This approach is primitive and poses a great level of incompetence, which is below the present state of technology and advancement in our society. This paper gives an overview of the traditional colour sensing techniques and the use of sensors to improve colour identification accuracy. The review studies the use of various technologies such as colour sensors, smartphones, and LDR to get a better outcome in detecting urine colour using sensors and integrating artificial intelligence in the area of urine analysis
