Intel Bringing Retail to the Future

Intel has partnered with several companies to produce several different innovative technologies at this year’s conference. They have showcased a 3-D knitting technology where customers were  able to pick the color and size they wanted. The idea behind this technology is that it will eliminate wasted inventory, markdowns and discounts by allowing retailers to deliver exactly what the customer demand needs. True Fit & Intel debuted a 3-D foot scanner utilizing Intel’s RealSense to find a customer’s perfect shoe size.  Intel has also partnered with SAP to solve inventory management issues using RFID tags. The RFID tags are attached to each item within the store and communicate with SAP Dynamic Edge Processing providing information at the retailer’s finger tips. Retailer’s will get real-time requests to restock shelves, help employees locate items throughout the store, optimize check-out wait times and much much more.
