"The Smart Shopping Cart"
Kwik-E-Kart is a shopping cart that “knows” what items are currently residing within its basket. It is an attachment that fits into most any shopping cart. Its RFID readers are connected to the processor which updates the total cost displayed on the LCD screen on the handlebar. An external computer (Android-OS phone) connects to the board via Bluetooth to keep an itemized list of contents in the cart, which serves as the receipt. The Bluetooth connection is also used by the cashier upon checkout. The ARM processor is the heart of the system.
