The use of the GoCart application will enhance the grocery shoppers’ experience by taking the shopping list and generating the most efficient shopping path. According to the Time Use Institute, the average shopping trip takes 41 minutes. In part, the time spent is attributed to confusing store layout, congested aisles, and uninformed staff (Marks, 2015). Results from our grocery shopping experience has shown that more time is directed towards roaming through the aisles searching for the items. There are applications out there dealing with creating shopping lists and finding specific item locations, but not a combination of the two with a shopping list. Along with generating the most efficient shopping list path it also displays a map with the store layout that pinpoints each item on the list. GoCart will make the next trip to the grocery store quick and painless.
