EuroShop conference 2020 focuses on security
One new technology highlighted was self-checkouts that scanned items by recognising the shape and weight on the conveyer belt
Technology to improve the security of convenience stores was a major focus at the EuroShop conference 2020 in Germany.
The annual trade show took place in Dusseldorf last week.
Sid Sidhu, of St John’s Budgens in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, told betterRetailing: “There was a lot of technology, such as doors with cameras embedded into them.
“These were designed to recognise a customer and tailor radio advertising to them, but there were other uses such as recognising a thief and alerting the retailer.”
Simply Fresh creative director Davinder Jheeta added that EuroShop conference 2020 also had self-checkouts that scanned items by recognising the shape and weight on the conveyer belt.
