Many a time, I have walked through a wegmans, wandering aimlessly, nowhere to go, unsure what to do. Now with speedy snacks you can be in and out as fast as possible.
What it does
Provides you with an optimal path through wegmans to find all of your groceries
How we built it
We built it using the location feature of wegmans combined with heuristics based on wegmans layouts.
Challenges we ran into
Setting up an account system proved harder than expected. Also obtaining data from the wegmans API was a little strange because I had to try 3 different methods of sending requests because they kept returning junk information in the request body
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The real time rendering of the wegmans map with your food locations on it.
What we learned
What's next for Speedy Snacks
Eventually we think that by applying OCR technology to the layouts of wegmans stores online we could get an even more accurate layout for even faster shopping
