Amazon to open first cashierless shop to public on Monday
Online giant Amazon on Monday plans to open a convenience store in Seattle where hungry customers will be able to grab sandwiches and go, without having to wait in line or use a checkout.
The American group unveiled the concept for its cashierless “Amazon Go” shop just over a year ago, saying the 1,800 square feet (170 square meters) store would initially offer grocery products to its own employees before being opened to the public.
Early testing however revealed bugs, leading to a delay.
In a message Sunday on its website, Amazon said it had created “the world´s most advanced shopping technology so you never have to wait in line.”
But if the rollout has taken some time, it´s now ready to Go.
People armed with the app are able to pick up items as they roam the store and place them directly in their bags — without the need for shopping carts or baskets.
Instead, items are automatically added onto a customer´s online account when they´re removed from a shelf, or taken off if the item is put back.
The system relies on a mix of cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence, according to AmazonDisclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
