    Smart Shop

    Smart Shop focuses on improving the shopping experience for customers inside supermarkets, using technology to create a new interaction between the place and the people in the place.

    The project targets possibilities for the customers. Every supermarket possesses a database that contains all information concerning the products: prices, discounts, location in supermarket, etc. I am deploying that database in a new context, providing it to customers through a mobile application, with a visual location-finding interface for their use inside the supermarket. Using that database, customers can browse products, find exactly where they are located in the aisles, find discounts, and navigate spatially through the supermarket. The information will be displayed by scanning the AR (Augmented Reality) codes with a smartphone or tablet computer.
