Amazon is rolling out grocery carts
Amazon is automating the grocery cart making it into a smart grocery cart or an intelligent cart whichever you prefer. All the scanning is built into the cart.
Noted on CNBC July 2020
- Amazon is launching smart shopping carts at its Woodland Hills, California, grocery store in 2020.
- Dash Carts are embedded with cameras, sensors and a smart display that automatically track a shopper’s order.
- Similar to Amazon’s cashierless Go stores, Dash Carts allow shoppers to avoid checkout lines as they exit the store.
Amazon is launching shopping carts that track items as shoppers add them, then automatically charges them when they remove the grocery bags, allowing them to skip the checkout line.
The Dash Carts will roll out at Amazon’s new Los Angeles-area grocery store, which is slated to open this year, the company announced Tuesday.
Shoppers must have an Amazon account and a smartphone to use a Dash Cart. After entering the store, users scan a QR code, located in the Amazon app, that signs them into the cart and loads Alexa shopping lists.
