Shekel, an AI-powered advanced weighing solution provider, has introduced Fast Track, a touchless machine learning-based cloudless self-checkout solution for supermarkets. Fast Track aims to eliminate the need for consumers to enter product codes via touchscreens by automatically recognizing produce, bakery and specialty items.
Fast Track also can help improve accuracy for retailers, which can boost loss prevention, reduce errors at checkout and create a better self-checkout experience for customers. The platform’s AI-powered adaptive continuous weighing capability can improve visual recognition for fresh produce in particular.
Fast Track requires only a USB camera, and the framework can be downloaded through an API. The software’s machine learning function lets existing POS hardware teach itself how to recognize new products, which can expedite deployment. Additionally, the tool uses data generated at the store level, with no data collection performed through Fast Track itself.
