Abstract

Due to information overload, many people currently struggle with coordinating and managing their basic chores. By using wireless localization, we have designed and developed the "Personal Assistant," a location-based program that facilitates grocery shopping. The "Personal Assistant" helps the user find the best deals in grocery items, and filters the information based on the stores' locations. It is a proof-of-concept application that utilizes several cutting-edge technologies to investigate how they can be used together.
