Smart Cart / Smart Cart - Shopping Cart 2.0

Smart Cart
Smart Cart

RFID Systems will play a decisive role in future supermarkets. Shopping carts made of metal are technically unsuitable to work in RFID Systems. Furthermore the weight and form decrease the user-friendliness.
The Smart Cart is made of plastic. It is ideal for the use in RFID Systems and succeeds with an innovative design:
-the shopping basket is elastic => increased safety
Injuries caused by collisions (basket in children head height) or damages to parking cars can be avoided
-individual colouring (=> Ci) possible
-standardized chassis for different basket sizes
-clearly improved manoeuvrability due to ergonomic handlebars and less weight
