Abstract:
    Smart Trolley enables users to quickly scan their products or items to get information of that particular item.This information may include weight, expiry date, item name. Data can also be uploaded.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Customers have to wait in long queues to get their bill cleared. Due to rush in stores there are possibilities of human errors. Billing time in increased due long queues. Also there are management issues regarding data storage and analysis, which we have to solve in our project.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Smart Trolley will mainly be designed for mega stores, it will be beneficial for both customers and worker, as it reduces billing time and helps in managing inventory and updating record and in data analysis
How will the solution works
    Quick Scan of items will help in resolving the problems, we can use Barcode Scanner to keep track of items and to get information for particular item. Customer also not need to ask sales person to know about information of item, every time he/she select an item. Just by scanning the items and putting them in cart will make our bill of all the items we are purchasing and our bill will be ready by the time we reach at billing counter. Weight sensors can also be added to check the validity of sale.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    It is relatively new concept and is not deployed in Pakistan. Amazon have represented an idea of mart with no store keeper. There are some solutions which are using image processing, they require huge accuracy and as product packing changing there solution not remain valid for long.
