Product Identification and Monitoring System in Shopping Complex
Shopping malls allow the customers to shop variety of products under one roof. Since it does not need the
customers to go to various shops to buy different products, shopping in malls helps save the shopping time. Because of this,
many people have started shopping in malls making them more and more crowded. So, besides this big advantage, there is a
major disadvantage of long billing queues taking much longer to bill the purchased products. Therefore, it becomes pointless
to go to shopping malls in order to save time. So, if there were a system to generate the bill of shopped products
automatically or simultaneously then it could save the billing time thereby revoking any need to stand in long queues. There
are various techniques such as barcode scanner, camera, RFID tags and codes to generate the shopping bills on trolley itself
to make the shopping trolleys smarter by introducing self-billing upon them.
