LG Self-Driving Carts Aim To Save Grocery Shoppers Time And Energy
Grocery, Convenience & Supermarket

The electronics retailer's robotic shopping companion not only eliminates the need for shoppers to push or carry their grocery carts, but even rings up their items as they shop, allowing customers to skip the lines and check out immediately

LG’s latest technology aims to take the in-store shopping experience to the next level, eliminating even the need for customers to push their own carts: The Korean electronics brand’s shopping trolley instead will follow customers around the store as they pick out their goods.

The robotic carts, called LG CLOi CartBot, will initially appear at Korean supermarket chain E-Mart. The devices will do more than hold items, however, as they can also be paired with a mobile app, allowing shoppers to make requests regarding items they’re interested in as well as locate them in the store.

A final major way that these bot carts aim to provide added convenience to customers is by eliminating arguably the worst part of grocery shopping: standing in line. Thanks to the shopping companion’s built-in bar code scanner, shoppers can ring up their items as they shop, and use an automated payment service when ready to check out, no line or cumbersome transactions required.
