Supermarket Checkout

 HIP5822 - Version 2smallShopping Trolley

The Supermarket Checkout demonstrates how shopping of the future could be streamlined through the application of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies.  Smart shelves, RFID tags on items and contactless payment showcases how retail outlets can improve their processes by making them more efficient.



The Demonstration Centre showcases three areas for “shopping of the future”.  Smart-Shelves demonstrate stock availability by the use of individual item level tagging with RFID labels.  Goods, when placed into a shopping trolley are then automatically read by scanners at the checkout, before “contactless payment” is made using NFC enabled debit cards.


If you would like to contact the NTAILS team or have any queries relating to the centre, please use the contact form below.
