Convincing people to integrate new technology into their daily lives is one of the biggest challenges when it comes to implementing a new system such as the “just exit” system. The upfront costs of such a system, including cameras, computing devices and weighted shelving, can be significant for businesses with already low profit margins such as grocery stores. Even deep-pocketed companies like Amazon may find it financially difficult to invest in this technology, especially as it continues to evolve and improve from an AI perspective.

In addition to the financial challenges, there are also regulatory risks to consider when adopting systems such as “just exit”. Issues surrounding the sale of tobacco and alcohol, as well as the perception of replacing human labor, can complicate the implementation process. Successful integration into everyday life will require the support of government stakeholders at all levels.

A more gradual approach to automating retail locations may be a more effective way forward, Arcaro says. The existing ecosystem of automated teller machines and related technology has already made progress in the industry, offering a more economically viable path. Over time, barriers to entry are likely to decrease as technology continues to advance.
