A supermarket is actually a place where varieties of goods are available. The objective of these supermarkets is to provide all the products available and also to save the time of customers. But these customers get very frustrated waiting at the billing counters and randomly changing queues, get confused while comparing price. In this era of e-commerce shopping, the demand for these types of system is corroding day by day. To eliminate these problems, a trolley is designed that actually does not make customers wait for queues. These supermarkets can use this technique as a strategy to increase their customers and it included a human-guided following system that makes trolley to floor the user. This concept is a smaller prototype of automatic self-checkout system which makes customers do their payment for items they want to purchase before leaving the store. This is to release pressure at the counters during peak hours and increase malls efficiency.
