eInfochips, The Kroger Co. and Wincor Nixdorf Unveil ZigBee-Based 'Retail Site Intelligence' for Stores of 21st Century

eInfochips, The Kroger Co. and Wincor Nixdorf introduced a new enterprise IT architecture called Retail Site Intelligence (RSI). This architecture for stores of the 21st century uses ZigBee(R) wireless mesh networks to integrate long battery life sensors, hand held devices, point-of-sale devices and video management software into a next generation platform for retail applications such as loss prevention, store automation and analytics. The companies will demonstrate the RSI video management solution at ISC West 2014. The introduction of the RSI architecture, and the deployment of new retail business solutions by Kroger, culminates two years of global collaboration between Kroger and eInfochips to develop the underlying technology products for Stores of the 21(st) century. The results of this phase of development are new wireless devices (cameras, scanners, scales, and more to come) featuring ZigBee wireless technology, and Vigil360, a new video management software kernel designed specifically for RSI. Commercial versions of the RSI solutions being piloted by Kroger will be available later in 2014 with support and customization services delivered globally.
