Customers enter or exit the store with a payment method, bypassing a checkout-line. The technology uses camera vision and sensor fusion, or RFID technology which allows them to simply walk away with their items.By removing the checkout, retailers can increase merchandising space, move more customers through the store, and provide a frictionless shopping experience.
