Today world is changing very rapidly. There is a race in each object to turn out to be a smart. But smart things come with many challenges Customer gets new experience of this format with smart technology. But as mentioned, the new thing comes with many challenges. The billing process is quite boring and highly time consuming and has created the need for shops to employ increasingly human resource in the billing section, and yet waiting time remains much high. With a problem of waiting in a long queue to check-out the shopping item, new technology must be implemented to provide lowest delay time. Thus, the project team is developing a “SMART SHOPPING CART”, a system that allows faster check-out. A device that consists of an LCD screen, a barcode scanner, load cell, microcontroller, ZigBee, and a portable battery will be implemented on the shopping cart. The user would scan the Universal Product Code (UPC) that contains on the shopping item using the barcode scanner. The barcode information will be stored into a computer’s memory, and checked against database from which it would retrieve the appropriate information. A software package will link up the device with the database and ZigBee device. It will also enable the microcontroller to calculate the total price for all scanned items, and display it on the LCD screen. If the customer is ready to make a payment, he would pass the cart through the cashier. The total price will be sent to the cashier using ZigBee, and the receipt will be automatically printed from the items from the counter. All the customer must do is to pay for the total price without unloading the items from the cart. The team expects that the smart shopping cart will be a more reliable from of check-out process that will decrease the amount of time a customer must wait while shopping.
