Abstract: The new modern technology has increased the standard of living for
the humans. Every one of us craves for a quality of product everything we use
in our daily lives. So, this has resulted in a large number of crowds at
shopping malls which have to lead to long lines at the billing counter because
the cashier has to scan every product item and then enter it into the billing
record. The prevailing billing system is a bit time -consuming process. So, we
thought of inventing a remedial electronic product to catch-up with this
problem. We call it “Smart Trolley for Shopping Malls using pic
18F458”. This is based on the pic microcontroller fitted with an LCD
and  BARCODE scanner on a trolley and a
wireless  network to work even at long
distance due to its wide range. The brief description of its operation is, when
you pick a product from the mall and drop it into the trolley, the RFID scanner
scans the product’s unique code and its price. And it gets displayed on the LCD
screen. So after a customer has finished with the shopping has to visit the
counter and pay the bill as displayed on the LCD screen fitted on the trolley.
This will save a lot of the time that was earlier being consumed to scan each
item. 

 

 

 

Keywords: Smart trolley, digital trolley, pic 18f458, Zigbee, barcode,

1.INTRODUCTION1

 

        Now a day’s maximum operation is based
on the automation but then for billing we have to stand in long queue where
automation is not there in billing system. Based on automatic barcode scanning
method we can reduce the waiting time for billing the products and reduce the
manpower. Day by day we try to reduce the man work but for scanning and billing
process still us depending on the man power. The objective of the project is to
design a smart trolley which will assist the customers in shopping by
automating the billing process on the trolley itself which can easily be used
by common people. The system should also keep a check upon total number of
purchased and billed items in order to avoid wrong billing.The customers should
drop every product which they wish to purchase into the shopping trolley and
then proceed to checkout at the billing counter. The billing process is quite
tedious and highly time consuming and has created the need for shops to employ
more and more human resource in the billing section, and yet waiting time
remains considerably high. This project is designed to reduce and possibly
eliminate the total waiting time of customers, lower the total manpower
requirement and expenses for markets and increase efficiency overall.

LITERATURE REVIEW

Mohit Kumar, Jaspreet Singh1 This product
is basically an embedded system that uses arm7 lpc2148 microcontroller. The
motive of smart and quick billing is accomplished by interfacing RFID and
ZIGBEE module with the microcontroller. Janhavi Iyer, Harshad Dhabu2 The
advent of wireless technology along with other communication techniques has
helped in making electronic commerce very popular. A modern futuristic product
is the one that aids the comfort, convenience and, efficiency in everyday life.
In this project, we discuss an innovative concept of RFID Based Smart Shopping
and Billing trolley System. The main aim is to provide a technology-oriented,
low-cost, easily scalable, and rugged system for aiding shopping in person.
Anjali Verma, Dr. Namit Gupta3 The proposed research evaluates various
strategies to assist shopping for a consumer to reduce the shopping time in the
mall at the same time provides equal opportunity to aid the store management by
providing real-time updates on the inventory. Galande Jayshree, Rutuja Gholap4
Our aim is to design a system that can be used in shopping malls. The system
will be placed on all the trolleys in the mall. It will consist of an RFID
reader and ZigBee. All the products in the mall will be equipped with RFID
tags. When a person puts anyone products in the trolley, its code will be
detected and the price of those products will be stored in memory. As we put
the products in the trolley, the costs will get added to total bill. Thus the
billing will be done in the trolley itself. Item name and its cost also will be
displayed on the LCD.The products name and its cost can be announced using a
headset. At the billing Counter, the total bill data of all trolley will be
transferred to PC by wireless RF modules. Udita Gangwal, Sanchita Roy5 In
this paper, we describe the implementation of a reliable, fair and
cost-efficient Smart Shopping Cart using Wireless Sensor Networks. Such a
system is suitable for use in places such as supermarkets,  shopping mall where it can help in reducing
manpower and in creating a better shopping experience for its customers.
Instead of waiting in a long queue for checking-out their shopped items, the
system helps in automating the billing process. Along with this ability, the
system design also ensures detection of cases of deception invoked by dishonest
customers, which makes the smart system fair and attractive to the buyers and
also for sellers. The results are encouraging and with the use of repeaters at
appropriate locations inside the supermarkets, our approach illustrates itself
to be conceivable for use outside the laboratory, in a real-world deployment.
Mr. Mayur Subhash Chaudhari6 This paper looks into the use of an interactive
bracelet that communicates with the RFID system by mean of a database
application. This paper focuses on the RFID technology, and different ways of
its usage for security in areas like shopping malls, employee and student’s
identification, patient details monitoring system.

EXISTING SYSTEM

     The
Currently available method in shopping malls is the barcode method. The cashier
scans the product through the barcode scanner and gives us the total bill. But
this becomes a slow process when lots of products are to be scanned which
eventually results in long queues, making the billing process slow. While doing
a survey we found that most of the people prefer to leave the shopping mall
instead of waiting in long queues to buy the products. To solve the problems
previously identified, recent years have seen the appearance of several technological
solutions for hypermarket assistance. All such solutions share the same
objectives: save consumers time and money and help the retailers to win loyal
clients.

 

 

4.PROBLEMS
ASSOCIATED WITH EXISTING SYSTEM

 

Today purchasing various items in malls or
supermarkets require a trolley. Product procurement represents a complex
process. The customer has to pull the trolley from rack to rack for collecting
items and simultaneously customer has to perform estimated expense computation.
At the end, a customer has to wait in the long queue for billing and payment.

 

 

 

5. REVIEW
ON DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGY

5Smart trolley with instant billing to
ease Queues at shopping malls using Arm7 lpc2148: a review:-   The modern technology has increased the
standard of living for the humans. Every one of us craves for a quality in
everything we use in our daily life. So, this has resulted in large crowds at
shopping malls which have to lead to long lines at the billing counter because
the cashier has to scan every product item on barcode scanner and then enter it
into the billing record. The prevailing billing system is a bit time-consuming
process. So, we thought of inventing a remedial electronic product to catch-up
with this problem. We call it “Smart Trolley with Instant Billing to Ease
Queues at Shopping Malls using ARM7 LPC2148: A Review”. This is based on arm7
microcontroller fitted with an LCD and RFID scanner and a wireless ZigBee. The
LCD used is a 16×2 and ZigBee modules make the wireless network to work even at
long distance due to its wide range. The brief description of its operation is,
when you pick a product and drop it into the trolley, the RFID scanner scans
the product’s unique code and its price. And it gets displayed on the LCD
screen. So after the customer has finished with the shopping customer has to
visit the counter and pay the bill as displayed on the LCD screen fitted on the
trolley. This will save or reduce the time that was earlier being consumed to
scan each item.

 

6Smart Trolley System for Automated
Billing using RFID and ZIGBEE:- In our Futuristic Billing Trolley System
environment, each product will have the passive Radio Frequency ID tag which is
bearing a unique Electronic Product Code. This Electronic Product Code provides
the information about the product i.e. its name and cost. When the customer
puts the product in the Smart Trolley, the RF-ID scans the tag and the
Electronic Product Code number is generated that is previously known by RFID
reader. Radio Frequency ID reader passes the Electronic Product Code to the
microcontroller 89S52 where the controller compares the Electronic Product Code
with the database of the system having various products. After that, the name
and price of the product obtained by the controller gets displayed on the LCD
display of the Smart Trolley, where the user can see all the product
information. The microcontroller 89S52 also passes the data obtained from the
database to the ZigBee transmitter from where the data is wirelessly
transmitted to the billing counter computer. The computer receives this data
through ZigBee receiver using Max 232 interface. Thus the final information of
all products with the bill is transmitted to a computer with the help of serial
communication.

7RFID based Smart Multitasking Shopping
Trolley System:- The characteristic of an innovative product is measured on the
parameter of how much it adds comfort, ease and proficiency to the everyday
life at the same time having value addition on the social aspects. The trend of
purchasing the smallest of the good from a shopping mall is observed quit
casual nowadays as seen in the regular advertisements of different
cost-effective purchases of daily utility goods by different shopping
destinations.This strategy and trend have pulled masses towards the shopping
mall.After the purchase of the variety of items, the customers will have to
stand in long queues for bill payments as the billing counters are very limited
as compared to the number of shopping items on board. To increase the pace of a
billing process, Radio Frequency ID technology has been used significantly
since long, thus providing many new services and convenience in the retail
environment. The RFID technology provides reading the code (RFID tag) at the
cashier end to quickly count the number of items purchased, thus saving time to
stand in long queue. In the proposed review paper, different techniques used to
design the RFID based smart multitasking shopping trolley are compared and
contrasted. One which makes use of RF module protocol. 8 RFID Based Automatic
Billing Trolley:- In Shopping mall where people get their daily necessities
ranging from food products, clothing, electrical appliances, footwear etc.  Now day’s numbers of shopping malls have
increased throughout the globe due to increasing public demand. Sometimes
customers have problems due to the incomplete information about the product on
sale and waste of many time at the billing counters for billing. Continuous
improvement is necessary in the traditional billing system to improve the
quality of shopping experience to the customers. To overcome these problems
stated above and to improve the existing system, they have designed a SMART
TROLLEY based on RFID. This can be done by attaching RFID tags to all products
and an RFID reader with an LCD display on the shopping trolley. With this
system customer will have the information about the price of every item that is
scanned in, the total cost of the items. This system will reduce the time of
customers and manpower required in malls and cost associated with the product.

In this project, we have used Transreceiver
type RF module.  Transmitter modules are
implemented with the microcontroller which will provide data that can be
transmitted to the module. 

 

 

6.PROPOSED METHODOLOGY

Now day’s people spend much of time
unnecessarily in shopping malls for billing. Some of the product such that
grocery items packed without price tag so people do not know that related
product price. To overcome these problems we can use BARCODE based shopping
system using the smart trolley. Here microcontroller is used to display the
product price and total bill in the LCD display. In the existing system, the
cashier scans the product through the barcode scanner and gives the total bill.  But this becomes a slow process when lots of
products are to be scanned which eventually results in long queues at billing
counter, making the billing process slow. While doing a survey we found that
most of the people prefer to leave the shopping mall instead of waiting in long
queues for billing to buy few products. To solve the problems previously
identified, recent years have seen the appearance of several technological
solutions for hypermarket assistance. All such solutions share the same
objectives: save consumers time. RFID and barcodes are both similar in that
they are data collection technologies, meaning they automate the process of
collecting data. However, they also differ significantly in many areas

 

 

 

 

  
The main aim of project is to provide a technology oriented, low-cost
and provide an easy shopping facility to customers. The developed system
comprises of the pic microcontroller, 16×2 LCD display unit, barcode scanner,
ZIGBEE transceiver and a battery power source. All the items in the mall will
be equipped with BARCODE tags. When person want to start shopping it has to
select the start button. When person wants puts an item in the trolley, it have
to scan item by the barcode scanner which is interfaced with microcontroller.
scanner send barcode of that item to microcontroller, after matching code with
codes stored in memory, microcontroller reads item’s name, cost etc.After
scanning the costs will get added to total bill .Thus the billing will be done
at the trolley itself .When we want to take any item,  that item name on keypad .after entering name
of that item  on LCD display shows the
position of that item in mall. The  LCD
is used to display item names, item cost etc.Whenever a product is purchased it
automatically checks for the expiry date.So it helps us to remove the expired
product. If the customer need to ‘cancel’ a selected product, it can be
accessed through scanning the product two times. After completing the shopping,
the customer has to select the “Finish” button. This enables the total bill
being generated. When customer enters finish button then zigbee transmitter sends
the total bill and trolley number to the zigbee receiver which is at billing
counter .Then at receiver side on pc all trolley numbers and bill will be
display.

 

 

 

7.ALGORITHM

1)Select the start button on shopping
trolley.

2)Take the items and scan the barcode on
items at barcode scanner.

3)The buzzer and led will on after
successfully scanning of each item.

4)Put the items in trolley.

5)for searching any item in mall enter the
name of that item on keypad.

6)for deleting any item from trolley scan
that item two times.

7)after completing the shopping press the
finish button. 8)Then LCD display total bill.

9)At receiver side total bill and trolley
number will be display.

10)you have to pay there

 

 

 

8.CONCLUSION

 

By means of this paper, we intend to
simplify the billing process, make it swift & increasing the security using
Barcode technique. This will take the overall shopping experience to a
different level.  Different parameters
such as the system parameters of smart trolley like products name, products
price, product weight etc. Are continuously display Thus with the help of the
conclusion we can say that 

1. Automatic billing of products by using
barcode technique will be a more viable option in the future that saves the
time of the customer. 

2. The system based on barcode technique is
efficient, compact and shows promising performance.
