Checking the fridge and wasting time determining what you need to buy. Instead of "Add x, y, z, ... to my shopping list", say "ShoppingTime!" and it determines what you need to buy.
What it does
Say what items you'd like in your fridge, take a picture of your fridge, determine what is needed
How we built it
Swift -> App where you can take a picture and send it to a server we created with your unique id. Python -> Handles the image recognition and sends info to Google Vision API, which gives back info. This info is later processed by our Python Script and it sends a message to our Google Assistant, which lets the user know what needs to be bought.
Challenges we ran into
Server-side challenges, Google Mini connectivity
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Starting a new era of grocery shopping
What we learned
Working together in a team environment knowing what impact our software will have on the world
What's next for ShoppingTime
Collaborations with (a) grocery store company(ies) (Ex: Costco, Loblaws, etc.) where they can prepare the required items and user can either choose pickup or delivery. This speeds up the process of grocery shopping removing the need to search for items and remembering what needs to be bought.
