ASSET – A new form of consumerism
The ASSET project aims at demonstrating and facilitating a new form of consumerism. This involves a literate decision making for the individual consumer, the ability to form a community, and the emergence of a collective dynamics and collective awareness.
A pilot platform including different tools will be developed for a test phase within a supermarket. A consumer interface via a smartphone application linked to social media will provide the tool for supporting individual shopping decisions and interacting with the community. This is supported by a user localization system at the supermarket and an ASSET database system, collecting open data, integrating networks and addressing online collaboration.
