ABU DHABI: Three female students participating in Think Science Competition 2018, which is organised by the Emirates Foundation and is scheduled to be held in April, have devised a smart shopping trolley that will help shoppers to have fast and easy shopping. The female students are Zahra Belhabeeb, Randa Ahmed and Aisha Al Mansouri.

The smart trolley is a traditional shopping trolley to which a tablet computer is attached and is supplied with a scanner to read the barcodes of products and a stick that can be extended to help shoppers fetch products from upper shelves. A first time user of the smart trolley will have to establish a special account through the tablet computer, and he will be able to use the smart trolleys of all the malls that facilitate the new smart trolley.

The trolley also allows the possibility of searching for a product. The shopper merely needs to type the name of the product to see where it is located.

The price of the trolley will range between Dhs1,000 and Dhs2,000.
