Ask The ExpertsHave Any Swedish Retailers Deployed RFID Self-Checkout Solutions?
RFID Journal Staff asked 8 years ago

We are two students who plan to write our thesis on the development of RFID technology combined with self-checkout systems in stores, and how this affects the consumer shopping experience. Do you have any information about stores that have implemented RFID-based self-checkout systems in Sweden, or in nearby countries in Europe?

Your e-mail was forward to me, as I am the editor of RFID Journal. We have not seen many retailers using RFID for self-checkout, though the concept has been around for more than a decade. Here are a few articles that involve retail self-checkout (not necessarily in Sweden):

Russia’s Future Store Seeks a Supermarket for Its RFID Solution

IER’s Expedited Self-Payment Kiosk Speeds Up Checkouts

FamilyMart Demonstrates RFID’s Convenience to Customers

Brazil’s Valdac Turns to RFID for Style and Savings

I hope this is helpful in your research.
