As a side note, please excuse me if it is not great because I am 12. Thanks a lot.
I was inspired to do this after seeing people struggle to scan each barcode. This led to large queues. It was then I got the idea
What it does
Supermarket Identify takes away the need for any barcodes and barcode scanners. Simply take out your phone, take a picture and send it. We'll do the rest. Using ML it works out what is selected.
How I built it
I started off by using TensorFlow and python combined with the COCO Dataset. To implement taking a picture I used CV2 as well as PIL.
Challenges I ran into
It was hard to code a program that lets chrome use the webcam. This was the hardest bit.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is my first ML project and I have learnt so much.
What I learned
I have learned about how to effectively use TensorFlow and the Model Zoo.
What's next for Supermarket Identify
I think I am going to add some more family-friendly features and make it quicker.
