AI powered shopping carts automatically ring up purchases

Retailers are constantly looking for new ways to make the consumer’s experience easier and faster, and to compete with online ordering. Last year we saw the invention of smart shopping bags in the United States, which allows consumers to scan and purchase items as they go around the supermarket, not needing to queue and pay at the end. Another invention is the autonomous grocery store, in the form of self-driving vehicles which brings food directly to the customer’s house. The artificial intelligence company IMAGR has gone one step further. Consumers can now shop without needing to go to the checkout, scan barcodes or queue.The SMARTCART uses computer vision technology in order to recognize products as they are placed inside the basket. Consumers then pay for the products automatically, using the mobile application, in which they must link their payment details to.
