Online giant Amazon is known to cause some major market disruptions🤟 through its innovative offerings.

It has launched revolutionary products such as Kindle, Alexa🔊 and services including Prime in the past.

The latest in this series is a smart shopping cart.

As per Amazon, it will shake up the supermarket industry🏪 and will offer a solution to long checkout lines.

How does it work?

This innovative cart called Amazon Dash Cart uses cameras📸, sensors and a scale to automatically detect what shoppers drop in it.

It keeps a tally of them and then charges their Amazon account when they leave the store🚗.

Notably, no cashier👨🏻‍🦰 is needed in this process.

Debut just a few months away

Amazon Dash Cart will be put into service later this year🗓️ at an Amazon’s upcoming supermarket in Los Angeles, USA.

Although this store will have cashiers, as per Amazon, it wants to provide shoppers, a way to bypass any lines😌.

It is likely that Amazon could also use such carts at ☝️its grocery chain, Whole Foods in the future.

Will take some catching

Presently, several start-ups are also in the process of developing👩🏻‍🔬 smart shopping carts.

However, they have a drawback as groceries need to be scanned before dropping them into such carts🛒.

On the other hand, no such scanning is required✌️ in the Amazon dash cart.

A screen placed near the handle, tracks🔍 what is being added to the cart and charges it in the bill📃.

Meanwhile, if something is taken out from the cart, it immediately detects it too and removes it🚫 from the bill.
