Observation

The target group for this project is all people who own a mobile device and need to buy basic necessities such as food, etc.

Conclusion

Given the emergency situation in which we find ourselves, we need to minimize travel outside the home as much as possible. It may happen that we are missing an ingredient and unfortunately there are very long queues to get into the supermarket or they are even closed. The idea behind this project is to allow people to find basic necessities in the immediate vicinity and at any time of the day and night, safely without contact with the vending machine itself.
