Modern technology has developed at a fast pace, with many types of technology competing against each other. However, the Internet of Things (IoT) has superseded many new technologies. IoT basically consists of algorithms that obtain your retail habits more than what can be probably assumed. IoT capabilities allow devices and sensors to communicate with other devices to achieve faster work and reduce overall sales time. One good example of IoT is artificial intelligence (AI) which has the highest effectiveness on the retail businesses. These machinery tactics lead to smarter cities that make everything easier to deal with. From Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) smart tags to the IoT sensors that can tell whether a product is about to be purchased, or if it is being returned to the shelf using scanning codes. Furthermore, they have the ability to scan faces with ease, allowing it to mark down whether employees are absent or present. Out of stock items are easily identified through the use of IoT. Smart shelves are a new concept that has been derived from the use of IoT technologies in the retail business.
