    Title: Quality Tracking System For Perishables on the go!
    Team: Mr. Ikram Shah (ECE III Year), Ms. Aswini Shilpa (CSE III Year) and Mr. Sriharsha P (CSE III YEAR) (Mentor: Dr. Shriram K V, Asst. Prof, CSE)

    Idea:
    It is a fact that natural and perishable goods such as fruits and vegetables are cultivated in one location and are transported to other locations for consumption. It is also well known that a single such vehicle does not transport the vegetables and such goods from the source city to the destination city in one go; there are multiple intermediate transfers of the perishable goods between smaller vehicles to reach the interior regions of the country. During this transportation process, the order in which the products are stacked in the vehicle from the source is completely changed by the time the product reaches the destination (Last In First Out). Usually, the perishables placed first in the vehicle is the last to be removed as they are stacked one above the other. Due to this, by the time the vegetables or fruits placed at the bottom of the stack are delivered, they could become spoiled or unusable. Also, there are some vegetables that could withstand the weight of the stack and remain fresher for a considerably longer duration within the vehicle during transportation.Our innovative solution is aimed at identifying the basket of perishables that is most likely to get spoiled and to deliver them in the order of freshness. Therefore, this enables delivery of the perishable goods within the appropriate time without letting them get spoiled and thus wasted.We used IoT, Data Analytics, and Microcontrollers to achieve the task.

    Abstract

    Recommender Systems are a subclass of information filtering systems that seek to predict the preferences of a user or the preference that a user would give to an item. The most common problem faced by these systems is the lack of data. Such a situation leads to a matrix that is extremely sparse thus reducing the accuracy of prediction. Cold-start problem is one such problem that is faced by the recommender systems when a new user or a new item enters the system. We are hoping to reduce the cold-user and the cold-item problem by reducing the sparsityof the sparse matrix with the help of Iterative Local Least Squares algorithm and a hybrid of Heat Spreading algorithm and Probability Spreading algorithm.
