Reduced Shrink and Rapid ROI: Helps boost profits per lane (per day) by up to 10%, leading to a quick return on investment (ROI) of less than 12 months.
Integration with Your POS System in Real-time: No other BOB solution is able to recognize a BOB item and then automatically send the item description and UPC information directly to the POS.
Flexible, Cost-effective Scalability: The LaneHawk LH4000 BOB loss prevention unit leverages open, industry-standard technologies to allow you to easily incorporate next-generation retail technologies into your storage infrastructure.
Tighter Business Controls: The LaneHawk LH4000 unit captures transaction data and BOB images to enable detailed reporting on what is going through the checkout lanes under the cart.
Training of Cashiers: The LaneHawk LH4000 unit requires minimal cashier training and operates within the transaction workflow. The cashier is not interrupted until he/she is ready to process the BOB items. Productivity is enhanced and BOB items cannot be ignored.
The LaneHawk™ LH4000 unit is a loss prevention solution that turns the bottom of- basket (BOB) into profits in real-time. The LaneHawk LH4000 unit detects and recognizes items as part of the transaction, making sure stores get paid for their BOB items. The LaneHawk unit solves the BOB loss problem in a way that other products cannot by including BOB items as part of the transaction. The LaneHawk LH4000 unit reduces shrink, increases revenue and is designed to pay for itself in less than 12 months.
How The Lanehawk LH 4000 Unit Works
A smart camera is flush-mounted in the checkout lane at foot level, continuously watching for items on the bottom of shopping carts. Using Visual Pattern Recognition (ViPR™) software, the camera is able to detect and recognize items that pass by the camera and then send the UPC information directly to the POS. At tender time, the cashier verifies the items that were found under the basket, scans those items and then finalizes the transaction. When using the LaneHawk LH4000 unit, the retailer is assured to get paid for those items.
The LaneHawk LH4000 unit consists of an ‘Intelligent Lighting and Camera Unit’ (iLCU), an ethernet cable and mounting hardware for each lane. The components mount on the inside of the lane so they do not interrupt customer throughput. A LaneHawk back-office server processes grocery item images and is integrated with the store’s POS controller. The LaneHawk unit has been ruggedly designed to work in the demanding retail checkout environment.
Powered by multiple ARM microprocessors, the Jade™ X7 portal scanner captures and processes images at an exceptionally fast rate while handling other peripheral operations with ease. Performance is further maximized by the use of strategically placed megapixel digital imagers and the Datalogic patented Illumix™ illumination technology, to deliver high speed stop action imaging.
In addition to reading bar codes through digital imaging, the Jade™ X7 scanner also is able to identify items using integrated ViPR® (visual object recognition) technology and Jade ASSIST software to further increase the first pass capture rate of the scanner.
Designed for simple mechanical integration into various check stand designs. This integration allows for easy and fast installation and service of the unit. The optional transition plate and the mounting kit provide a smooth and reliable transition between the entry and exit belts of the check stand.
A detailed Host Interface Specification is available that outlines the specifics of the software integration. The software interface provides for advanced remote configurations and diagnostics of the unit. The Host interface also supports ViPR object recognition within the Jade unit.
