Dutch auctions apparently start at a high
price and the price is reduced little by little
until a buyer grabs the item.

A bot could be designed to change the
price on an item that is on display while AVs
stand around watching the price drop.

The buyers could be tracked and the info
shuttled off the the database back-end.

It's the kind of auction 'we' use at the dutch flower auctions.

it's kinda effective, especially when having a lot of products and a lot of
buyers.
