Case Study: Upgraded PC Performance for Self-Checkout Solutions

BACKGROUND

In this case study, we’ll outline some of the challenges encountered by our customers when preparing a tender for an upgraded PC solution in self-service checkouts.

CHALLENGES

1. Multiple Connected Components:
The self-checkout system required integration with various components, including display, touchscreen, barcode scanner, printer, note acceptor, card reader, and a new audio speaker. All these units had to connect directly to the PC using multiple connection types.

2. Constant Multitasking:
Self-checkout systems demand fast data processing to operate multiple hardware components simultaneously. Any missed I/O interaction could potentially lead to scanning, cash acceptance, or printing errors.

3. Environment:
The original design offered limited space and ventilation options. The new solution needed to be compact and capable of withstanding extended temperature ranges.
