Tech company Caper's carts are capable of advertising products, keeping track of items for checkout and guiding shoppers through the store with a touchscreen map, integrating several elements of the purchasing process

Startup Caper Labs created a shopping cart that aims to streamline store navigation and checkout for retailers and customers alike. These autonomous carts are currently being tested in two New York City retailers and are already boasting increased sales.

Equipped with scanners and a touch screen, this shopping cart can scan and process payment as well as advertise products and help shoppers through the store with the small touchscreen. At this point the cart scanners are the standard laser reader of any conventional grocery store, but Casper Labs has plans to create an even simpler model with a weight sensor and extra cameras to keep track of items placed in the cart.

As cashierless and queue-free checkout become increasingly important among retailers and grocers in particular, this cart is designed to provide an innovative way to make the customer experience more efficient and streamlined, integrating the purchase means into the shopping process itself.
