Problem:
The laundry rooms at College Park are always too crowded. Often times, people forget to retrieve their laundry. In desperation, clothing gets moved around, thrown to the ground, and dirtied without the owner’s notice.

Target:
Students who live on-campus

Approach:
System that can track laundry usage and also notify users when their cycle is completed

Risks:
Reinstalling the current card swiping/technology infrastructure in the laundry rooms require much assistance from the school administration.

Technology:
Website or Android OS application
