Project Title: Development of a barcode scanning application for identifying recycling products

Project Description

The concept behind the project was to create an application where a user would scan a product on the side of a waste bin and it would return details of the product on an interface screen on the bin. This would tell the user which section of the bin to use (if it was metal recycling, plastic or paper recycling or normal waste) , this would be incorporated into the bins in the University Of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD).

Attending the university and being able to interact with the users and get feedback about the application would have allowed improvement when building, when building but due to COVID-19 this has changed and will be redirected to household items and what bins the Swansea council use and collect so instead of sections of the bin it will instead give information back to the user to tell them which collection bin the product goes into.

I enjoyed the software module in particular when doing Foundation Year

I would like a job in software or web development

I would like to further my studies by doing a Master’s degree in Software Engineering.
