The e-commerce giant, Amazon unveiled a smart shopping trolley, the Dash Cart some time ago, aiming to provide a quicker and more convenient shopping cart to customers. In fact, it can also be seen as an innovative contactless service to help customers skip checkout lane and attract them back into the store in a safe and creative way. 


In virtue of computer vision recognition algorithms and sensor fusion tech, the items placed insides the Dash Cart can be identified. When the customer exits the Dash Cart lane, the payment will be processed using the credit card that already connected with his Amazon account. As the whole shopping process can be finished by oneself, it is conducive to avoid human-to-human contact and longtime queuing. (self-checkout shopping cart, automatically checkout shopping cart)
