Overview

GTag aims to assist visually impaired and blind people in doing grocery shopping independently in an urban context. It consists of a mobile app and third-party NFC tags. The primary function of GTag is to record grocery-related information (e.g., expiration dates, cooking instructions, etc.) while in-store and replay them anytime post grocery shopping.
