Carrefour has opened its own version of Amazon Go in its head office in Massy (near Paris), where the chain is trying out facial recognition and registerless shopping.

In the small, automated store customers no longer need to pass by the register: they can simply pay by having their faces scanned.

The product range is very similar to what Amazon Go has to offer and is mostly focused on snacks and quick meals. More importantly, Flash registers its customers’ every move using cameras and sensors. Carrefour is hoping to have buyers’ accounts charged automatically with each purchase, eliminating the need to pass by a register – even scanning bar codes won’t be necessary.
