Carrefour launches cashierless store where shoppers pay using facial recognition
Carrefour has unveiled a new cashierless concept store which allows users to pay using facial recognition.
The French grocery giant is setting its sites on Amazon Go, and has launched a high-tech new concept store in its head office in Massy, France.
Dubbed “Flash” the store spans 500sq ft and offers customers a range of around 1300 items which, like in Amazon Go stores, are tracked by cameras and sensors.
Any items customers pick up will be automatically registered to their digital basket, and they can then pay for the items by simply looking in a camera which will scan their face.
It is currently only available to Carrefour staff, but it is expected to roll the concept out to more locations in near future.
