Pathfinding is always a challenging problem in math and computer science. But what if the pathfinding is applying to the warehouse, where has a lot of items and the employee needs to find the specific item? It will take a lot of time to search for a specific item if the employee needs to do it by memory. So we try to come up with an app that helps the employee to find the path.
What it does
In this project, we make an application for making visual warehouse maps and pathfinding algorithms to help the employee find the products in the warehouse faster.
How I built it
Using Neo4j, we make 2000 nodes for testing and makes each node has a different longitude and latitude, with some other property such as neutral and name. Moreover, we make the relationships between the nodes based on the neutral value to determine where in the map is the walking path, where are the shelves on the map.
Challenges I ran into
I just make a database for it but get struggle in developing the application as Kotlin, and I need to connect the database to the application
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We make a whole database with algorithms for relationships between nodes in neo4j
What I learned
I learned more about how to interpret with the neo4j more and get started with codes in the applications
What's next for Warehouse Apps
I will start to make the Android interface to interpret with this database.
