Name, first nameJuhi ShahYear of birth1994UniversityZHDKField of Interest / research fieldProduct / Object DesignTitle of projectMaking shopping independent for the visually impairedAbstractHave you ever seen a blind person shopping in a supermarket? Ever wondered why? Then how do they shop? We hardly think of these things as it is too easy for us to get hold of our daily necessities.

For a visually impaired person it is a huge task starting from finding the right products to paying the bill. The existing supermarkets and grocery stores do not have any facilities for the aid of these visually impaired.

My master project thesis revolves around creating hassle free shopping experience for the blind. It changes the current shopping by developing a product for independent shopping. The product solves the problem of navigation, product identification and creates a safe and enjoyable shopping environment for them.
