Motorola Solutions MP6000 Bioptic Imager
We designed this award-winning family of biotic checkout scanners for Motorola Solutions.
Class-beating performance packaged in a chiseled, clean design language.
Retail environments are particularly demanding for space, as well as integration with other manufacturer's technology, such as payment terminals, printers etc
Above all, the design needs to satisfy user demands for job safety, proper ergonomics while helping the customer's bottom line for bang for the buck, higher throughput, efficiency and integrated services

The checkout area is surprisingly complex - Multiple size constraints, different operation modes (standing & seated), all while trying to fulfill existing furniture retrofit expecations.
 
So there are different sizes of the MP6000 available, including different attachment accessories shown here in the modular rear housing
 
The shown omni-directional side scanner which allows scanning of information, such as ID cards, drivers licenses or coupons off of mobile phone screens during checkout.
Because every checkout lane across the world is different, a large amount of effort was spent to evaluate an ergonomically optimum placement for the secondary side scanner that would suit the majority of layouts.
The Bioptic scanner includes a multi-plane scanning ability to capture barcodes no matter the orientation of the object passed by it.  This requires the use of scanning through 2 different windows, 1 vertical glass panel and 1 horizontal panel.
 
The horizontal panel has to take quite a beating from objects being dragged along it throughout its entire lifetime and is made from the strongest scratch resistant, yet optically clear material - Sapphire Glass.
 
Because diamond is one of the few things that can effectively cut sapphire glass, checkout assistants are generally not allowed to wear diamond rings.
Clean product visualizations thoughout the development process...
Throughput speed is an essential core technical necessity here.  With many thousand scans per day, a single second slower to scan per item would lead to hours lost.
All our work flow stems from a well practised transition from Alias Studio into ProE (Creo).
The eternal juggle of fitting internal components into a modular shell proved to be one of the major obstacles, especially around the crammed optical windows.
 
Sometimes you get lucky:)
This is a very nice reward for all involved...
