SafeShopper clientMarch, 2010
Task: SafeShopper is an application to view the Gluten allergy information of food products by scanning their EAN-13 barcode. The decoded barcode is passed to a web service that determines whether the product is safe or not safe.
Develop an application that retrieves food product information by EAN 13 (EPC) barcode. The client runs on mobile phones and decodes the barcodes using the video mode. The user scans the barcode for a few seconds while the image is extracted and decodes the EAN-13 barcode. Product information is retrieved via web request to the central SafeShopper database and compared to the profile of the user. The application has a customized user-friendly GUI and the product information screen adjusts automatically to fit the information to the device screen.
