The Brain Corporation bakery system provides part-time staff the ability to scan and tally totals without memorizing countless pastries. Developed in collaboration with the University of Hyogo, the device is able to recognize and total the purchases in a mere second.
Using a series of cameras and light sensors, the system identifies the various products based on patterns, shapes and colors. If the machine is unsure of the item, it will outline it in yellow for the cashier to double-check. Cutting down serving time during rush hour periods, the Brain Corporation bakery system provides consumers and shop owners smoother retail experiences.
The visual recognition system becomes smarter overtime as it begins to identify patterns among the products sold. The robotic cashier has the potential to be adopted in other fields like grocery stores and medicine.
