Monitoring the Shopping Activities from the Supermarkets based on the Intelligent Basket by using the RFID Technology
Setting up a system is proposed, in which the RFID technology will be used, with a view of monitoring the products from a shopping basket. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) represents an advanced wireless technology, which comprises an important new solution within intelligent chips area and of automation technologies. RFID means an implementation of ‘intelligent objects’ specific for tracking entities and making easy the way of information acquisition. The data can provide any kind of information, such as: location or phase of an item within a manufacturing line or process, detecting entities or persons. The communication between the transmitter-receiver of the shopping basket with a server of the supermarket department is proposed to be carried out by means of wireless technology.
