When going shopping in the supermarket, just put the shopping basket with the goods on the cashier, and you can complete the checkout, bagging and payment in tens of seconds. Japan's large convenience store chain Rosen Group and Matsushita Electric Co., Ltd. are experimenting with a fully automatic self-service cash register. If it is practical, it will greatly shorten the checkout time and reduce the workload of the staff.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), also known as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), identifies specific targets and reads and writes related data through radio signals without the need for mechanical or optical contact between the system and specific targets. This technique is suitable for short-range identification communication. . At present, RFID technology is widely used in fields such as libraries, access control systems, and food safety traceability.
On the 14th, Rosen Group and Matsushita Electric Co., Ltd., at a Rosen store in Matsushita, Osaka, Japan, disclosed the entire process of verification testing of fully automatic self-service cash registers to the media. In the test of the day, the customer put the product with the RF tag in advance into the special shopping basket. After completing the purchase of the product, the customer went to the cashier to put the shopping basket on the checkout counter. The cash register completes the checkout in a few seconds by reading the information in the RF tag and displays the payable amount on the display.
The payment is also self-service, the customer puts the banknotes into the cash register, and the system can automatically change the value. The cash register also supports credit card payments and loyalty card payments. At the same time, the bottom of the shopping basket automatically opens, and the goods inside are dropped into the shopping bag below, and the bag is easily completed.
