Abstract

Electronic commerce has developed to such an extent to provide convenience, comfort and efficiency in day-to-day life. Nowadays there are a lot of stores emerging. A supermarket is a place where customers come to purchase their daily products and pay for that [1] . Lots of people spend too much time in the supermarket to purchase their goods. Because there is no proper way to pay the bills, they have no idea about present day deals / offers and people face difficulties in choosing the products from the large variety of products. The study aimed to provide a smart trolley for a supermarket which helps the customers to get benefit through the system. Techniques such as loyalty accounts, image processing, recommendation, voice assistants and person counting and payment checkout alert systems are used in order to enhance the performance of a smart trolley. Loyalty card is used to identify each customer and can be used to access the trolley. Smart trolley contains a camera and load cell which will scan the product and measure the product weight and display all the information in the LCD screen. It helps the customer to get the bill for their purchase in a flexible manner. Product recommendation system analyses customer needs and recommends best products to both new and existing customers in order to attract the customers and help them to make purchasing decisions. Voice assistants will help customers to ask queries related to locations, discounts, offers, and prices which reduce the need for a shopkeeper in the supermarket. In the billing counter, if more than five people are lined up, the system will alert the customer to be like “move a quick checkout counter” which maintains safe distance between the customers during the corona situation.
