Abstract

In order to reduce cost/labor and increase customer satisfaction, an idea of having a Self-Checkout Cart in retail stores was brought up. The idea of scanning items as you place them in carts, and having the ability to pay for them when finished shopping without waiting in line for check-out, will create this idea of decreasing cost/labor while increasing customer satisfaction.
