Title: AWARE: Facilitating Informed Consumer Purchasing Decisions through Point-of-Sale Access to Product Sustainability Information
This project is designing an information system through which consumers can obtain and consider relevant environmental ramifications of the goods they purchase every day. The project focuses on the technical elements of database design and wireless data transfer, the collection and organization of data for a chosen class of products, and the development of a method of presenting this information to consumers in an understandable way.
