Smart Shopping System

Make a small modification in this. Use a RFID reader in the shopping bag that sends data to your mobile app real time. Also have an RFID reader in the shelves, so if a product is taken from the shelf it should go into the shopping bag in sometime or trigger an alarm. After shopping have a QR code like Paytm and make the payment. Once the payment is made, the door opens and you can walk out. You have to create a model of the shop. For theft management, a database of the inventory has to be maintained.

  Frequently Asked Questions  

What is Makeathon ?

A Makeathon has it’s focus on the process of making things together. It is more about the progress than it is about the end result. The main drivers for a Makeathon are 4 folds :

  • Having fun creating stuff: Creating something new is an exhilarating experience.
  • Learning while you go: The best way to learn is to build something.
  • Increase your network reach: Professional and Non-Professional friendships are easily formed in the right environment.
  • Aaaaand Most of All: Lip smacking food!! XD

Can I start working on my hack
before the event ?

Nope! Even the most primitive of connections are to be made only after the commencement of the event. However, you can install softwares and packages, make prototype outlines and model before the event. You can even discuss with your respective mentors and plan on how to go about it!

Who can participate ?

Anybody who is a part of Lema Community is eligible to take part in the Make-a-thon (Anyone who has attended workshops/Kaizen robotics program/Machine Learning courses conducted by Lema Labs qualify as a member of the Lema Community :)

I don't have a teammate, can I register?

We have implemented a very effective auto matching system (no, NOT TINDER!), so just in case you are in need of a team, worry not, we've got your back.

How many team members can I have?

A team can have a minimum of 3 members to a maximum of
5 members.
