Amazon creates intelligent shopping trolley for supermarket launch

Amazon has created a smart shopping trolley

Amazon is to introduce a smart shopping trolley later this year at a California supermarket.

The trolley, known as a Dash Cart, uses cameras and sensors to track goods, and charges for them when bags are removed, enabling customers to leave without queuing.

The trolleys are a development on from the ‘just walk out’ cashierless tech used by the etail giant in its Amazon Go stores and are designed to make shopping more convenient.
