To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Intelligent shopping application
- ICT CityPulse
Anna is going to shop in the supermarket. While she enters the store, her intelligent shopping application starts. The shopping list she made during the past days is uploaded and displayed on her phone. Additionally, the system added some items to the shopping list considering needed products at home that Anna did not list. The system guides Anna through the store aisles to help her locate the products. The system considers the proximity of the products first and also freshness: i.e., fresh products are collected at the end. While Anna approaches the products, she gets a ranking of comparable products that are in the section according to her profile preferences (e.g. price, quality, fat free, organic, and allergies).
