New App: A Little Help for Big Shopping Trips

Standing at the supermarket and staring at 25 different kinds of jam on a shelf. Which is the best buy for you? A new app can help you decide.

ASSET, a project by the Linz Center of Mechatronics, combines existing product information to enable users to make better purchase decisions at a glance.  Field studies conducted during store hours helps analyze changes in consumer behavior. Of special interest: Decision-making changes that help to create a common consciousness as well as the effects of sustainable shopping.

The app is currently being tested in cooperation with Winkler Markt. Testers are still being sought and you are more than welcome to help test the app.

The international EU project began in 2016 and has a budget of €2,350,000.
