IBOTMART features a state-of-the-art lifting system that raises the basket to the ideal height for unloading. Following this, the basket is transported to a sealed chamber, where UV-C light technology is employed to thoroughly disinfect each basket. This meticulous process ensures that every basket is sanitized and ready for reuse, safeguarding customer safety.

Efficient Basket Management

Supported by a worldwide patent, IBOTMART’s automatic stacking feature revolutionizes supermarket logistics. By efficiently organizing baskets, the system saves valuable floor space and enhances the overall appearance and operation of the shopping area, contributing to smoother store operations and improved customer satisfaction.

Automatic Disinfection and Stacking of Baskets

The disinfection system of IBOTMART eliminates up to 99.9% of pathogens, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The UV-C light technology effectively sterilizes the baskets within a 6-second exposure time, ensuring rapid and efficient cleaning. After disinfection, the system neatly organizes the baskets, optimizing space and ensuring readiness for subsequent users.

Flexible Payment Module

IBOTMART includes an optional self-payment module that simplifies the checkout process. This advanced RFID system detects items within the basket and quickly generates an itemized receipt, facilitating a swift and hassle-free checkout. For stores with traditional checkout lanes, the payment module can be easily removed, allowing the system to focus solely on basket stacking and disinfection.

Versatile and Adaptable

Designed to seamlessly integrate into both modern automated supermarkets and traditional checkout lanes, IBOTMART provides flexibility to retailers without the need for significant infrastructure changes. Its advanced features make it a versatile tool for enhancing operational efficiency and customer safety in a variety of retail settings.

Patented System

IBOTMART is backed by a global novelty patent, as confirmed by the international search report from the patent office during the PCT process. The system has been granted a patent in Spain, with patent applications currently pending in the USA and Europe. IBOTMART is currently in the prototype construction phase. Supermarket chains have shown interest in this innovative solution, and the deployment of functional prototypes is scheduled for the summer of 2024.
