Also, this study aimed to create a budget system application for the shopper to be aware of his/her budget. The system is composed of a cart which houses the whole circuit, microcontroller, infrared, radio frequency receiver, ultrasonic sonar driver, windows tablet that has the budget system application, and a barco de scanner which scans the barcode of the products. The other system is a wearable gadget for the shopper which accommodates the infrared and radio frequency transmitters. The study employed both qualitative and quantitative methods of research to produce the essential data. The methods used were experimental method, which involved expansion and integration of existing studies, and descriptive approach, which involved evaluation through implementation and actual installation. The result of the evaluation confirms that the device functioned all of its features. The evaluators were interested on the idea of the Intelligent Shopping Cart being used in supermarkets and surplus warehouse. With this device, the shoppers are more aware of their budget upon shopping and are able to move conveniently without pushing the cart.
