- Abstract: In order to comply with the requirements of modern society well, we develop an automated supermarket cash register system using modern computer information processing technology and machinery automation technology. The system consists of five sub-parts, including transmission subsystem, scanning subsystem, payment subsystem, packaging subsystem and security subsystem specifically. The hardware configuration and software of the system are not independent. There is an organic integration. The information is shared and the structure is connected between different modules. The automated cash register system enables a full and comprehensive scanning to merchandises ,which means that no matter in what direction the bar code of the goods is,the system can complete the scanning accurately without repeating or missing. Besides, the system supports a variety of payment methods. What’s more ,it can pack goods automatically. With the advantages of celerity, accuracy, convenience and efficiency, it solves the problems of low efficiency and high rate of error of the manual cash register mode. It may even enable unattended supermarkets in the future. It meets the requirements of both businesses and consumers ,improving the competitiveness of the mall to increase profits and creating an easy and convenient shopping environment for customers at the same time. All in all, the application of cash register automation system is an inevitable trend with social development .
