Smart Drawer

Counting on technology

Brief

Intelligent cash drawers can help tackle retail fraud – and streamline cash counting by saving time and reducing mistakes.

But existing solutions tend to be bulky and expensive – and need regular calibration. They are hardware based and use up to eight individual, expensive load cells to detect money being placed in the various sections.

UK company Smart Drawer decided to do things differently – and approached us for help.

Approach

We used our world-class algorithm and sensing expertise to take a lot of the cost out of the equation.

The new Smart Drawer™ product uses just three low-cost load cells to sense the addition or removal of coins – singly or in multiples – and can determine in which section of the drawer coins are deposited.

The ‘secret ingredient’ is the algorithms, which continually analyse the output from the load cells and provide information on the contents of the cash drawer in real time.

The complex mathematics underpinning the innovation enables the drawer to be more compact than existing solutions – and a fraction of the cost.
