its first checkout-free store in central London on Tuesday 19. October. The
largest British retail chain follows the example of competing retailers Amazon,
Aldi and Morrisons, which already offer purchases without interaction with
cashiers and without scanning at electronic cash registers.
With the Tesco.com app, customers
will be able to choose groceries and leave the store immediately. The
combination of cameras and weight sensors finds out what customers have taken
and bills the products directly in the application when they leave the store.
Clients will receive the receipt on the phone within a few minutes.
Tesco technology is provided by the
Israeli technology startup Trigo, which has entered into similar partnerships
with supermarkets in Germany and the Netherlands. The system was previously
used by Tesco employees at the company's headquarters, but it will now be
available to regular customers for the first time.
