Beginning next month, the Israeli retailer plans to introduce the system to all its 62 outlets in the country
Machsanei Hashuk supermarkets customers in Israel will soon be able to use a self-checkout feature.
This comes as the firm rolls out a smart cart that provides scan-free self-checkout option. Customers will get promotions, product information and personalized recommendations via an on-cart screen. They will then pay for the items bought without the need to checkout or scan the products.
Machsanei Hashuk is introducing a modular system that uses both machine learning algorithms and high-precision cameras to note items as they are removed or added to the cart and charge the purchased goods before customers leave the store. WalkOut, a Tel Aviv-based technology developed the self-checkout system. The system can be fitted to existing trolleys without the need for the store to make significant changes.
The system also prevents the need for expensive on-cloud servers and the support of high-internet bandwidth.
The use of edge computing and single-sensor architecture allows supermarkets to operate a cost-effective yet robust solution.
The device also relays info with consumers via a large touchscreen. This offers store navigation, personalized recommendations, relevant promotions and supplementary product data based on the store’s location and shopper’s history.
