Ford engineers taught the supermarket trolley to brake independently

Structurally, the trolley looks like a regular store cart - in the upper part there is a compartment for products, and in the

The lower one is the components of the self-braking system.

At the bottom of the trolley is a radar, data fromwhich analyzes the neural network. If the system notices that the speed difference between the cart and the obstacle is too large, it automatically activates the brake.

Earlier, the American startup Caper presented a smartcart, which in the future will replace the cashier in supermarkets. She weighs the products herself, calculates the purchase amount and accepts payment by Apple or Android Pay.
