Carrefour announced the acquisition of the Wellcome supermarket chain to provide consumers a wider range of Carrefour store choices.
To provide a more convenient and safer shopping experience to consumers, Carrefour has installed ULSee’s best-in-class AI Infrared Monitor solution in its hypermarkets across Taiwan for temperature recognition and face mask recognition amid the pandemic. Carrefour says that shoppers no longer have to wait in line at entrances for forehead temperature measurement. The AI Infrared Monitor solution can quickly and simultaneously perform multi-person temperature recognition and face mask recognition to help avoid group cross-infections, while safeguarding the health of hypermarket workers and shoppers.
At present, Taiwan’s control over the pandemic situation has been tight and exemplary, due to the efforts of its prevention and protection heroes, as well as consumers for their willingness and intent to cooperate with government policies. Carrefour is leveraging the ingenuity of the AI Infrared Monitor to not only deliver on its promise of social responsibility, but to also reduce the workload of its personnel on the frontlines. These personnel will now have more time to serve shoppers better, thereby significantly enhancing the quality of service.
To know its customers and to continue serving them better, Carrefour may proceed to utilize additional features of the AI Infrared Monitor. The solution provides a face recognition option with patented technology to protect data privacy. Carrefour has fully embraced the smart and safe retail shopping trend to offer the best shopping experiences for consumers amid the pandemic.
