Abstract

Shopper's Eye is a personal digital assistant (PDA)-based, GPS-enabled agent prototype that relies on knowledge of a shopper's physical location to support the shopping task while at a mall. Users indicate their shopping goals to Shopper's Eye. As they stroll through a mall, Shopper's Eye informs them of the availability of items of interest to them in the immediately surrounding stores, as well as any cheaper local alternatives. Shopper's Eye uses the concept of location-based filtering which is exploiting the user's location to constrain the task of an agent.
