Two banners of Wakefern Food Corp. are introducing the newest model of Instacart’s Caper Cart smart cart solution.
A ShopRite store in Spotswood, N.J. currently offers the new Caper Cart, and a Fairway Market located in Manhattan will launch the smart cart device in the coming weeks. The new and enhanced Caper Cart automatically recognizes and rings up groceries, provides tailored shopping recommendations, and enables customers to check out directly from the cart.
Caper Cart, an AI-powered smart cart Instacart acquired in October 2021, is equipped with scales, sensors, touchscreens, and computer vision technology. The screen helps shoppers navigate the store, and proprietary scanless technology allows customers to drop them in the cart to be checked off a premade online list. Shoppers can bag as they go, and check out right from the cart.Chain Store Age
