Woolworths introduces self-service checkout changes
Woolworths is implementing state-of-the-art AI security technology at its self-service checkouts, in an effort to thwart thieves trying to bypass scanning.
Camera technology can accurately detect instances where an item has not been scanned through self-checkout. When an item is not scanned, it notifies the customer with an on-screen alert, simultaneously notifying a staff member.
‘We’re seeing… retail crime and theft is up,’ Alisha Moore, assistant state manager for Woolworths in WA, told the ABC.
More to come.
