This is the last blog for the competition wearable tech. After thinking and head-scratching finding the right mechanics for the smart shopping bag is very important. Some top points I considered while choosing the correct prototype- bag
The final setup is here
Securing the electronics in place
Using big portable battery as the led panels take much current and voltage and placing in the bag
Recaliberating the weight sensor. This time in the bag
Secured the LCD display on the bag and the LED Panel
My wife getting ready to go shopping with the bag
Finally measuring things in the bag.
More Thoughts on this to make it better
This is the first prototype of the smart shopping bag. I am still thinking of ideas to make the smart shopping bag more reliable and sturdy. Making a single PCB for all the accessories and device sensors could be a step in this direction. Then I don't have to deal with many wires cluttering the bag.
Nevertheless the prototype does work quite better than I had expected it.
