Abstract
 
A supermarket or a hypermarket is a form where wide variety of product items is available. These product items can be food, beverages or any household product. The main purpose of supermarkets is to provide availability of all the products and save the time of the customers but sometimes customer gets frustrated while waiting in the queue at billing counter and sometimes they get confused while comparing the total price of all the products with the budget in the pocket before billing. To overcome these problems, we have designed a smart trolley using a smart phone and Arduino. With this system, there is no need for customer to wait in the queue for the scanning for the product items for billing purpose. Supermarkets or Hypermarkets provide this faculty to only those customers which having membership cards. When the customer inserts the membership card in the basket or trolley only then it will work as a smart trolley. Otherwise, it will work as a normal trolley. Supermarkets and hypermarkets use this technique as a strategy to increase the number of customers.
