Also the staff is very important in the supermarket of the future, representing the primary contact for customers. In future, they will be supported by assistant systems, such as instrumented fruit bevels recognizing automatically which fruits or vegetables are currently offered. Variety, origin, grade, price, tips and advice concerning the goods are automatically displayed on a screen at the fruit bevel. By means of pictures in the display, the customer can clearly determine which display belongs to which fruits. When rearranging, the labeling fits automatically.
At all fruit boxes, RFID chips are mounted. RFID antennas, placed on the fruit bevels, detect the radio chips. Thus, the system recognizes where each fruit or vegetable is placed. The displays show the prize and variety as well as additional information such as recipes, pictures and videos related to the product.
