AiFi has a bit of an earth-shaking premise. It wants to make all stores checkout-less. The flexible and scalable model works for any existing stores, according to the company-meaning everything from small mom-and-pop convenience shops to major mega retailers comprising tens of thousands of square feet.
The company’s checkout-free technology uses AI algorithms real-time customer tracking,
action recognition, and product recognition. Its sophisticated camera technology can adapt to any type of store, and systems continuously track hundreds or thousands of shoppers in a store. It can recognize or re-identify them throughout a complete shopping session. The technology also enables a comprehensive understanding of shopping behaviors and gestures (even identifying abnormal gestures) and identifies people who are shopping together as a group. It can recognize tens of thousands of SKU item numbers based on AI.
The solution does not require any major retrofitting on the part of the stores, and AiFi says that once installed, retailers will gain improved inventory management data and valuable insights
into consumer shopping habits and product preferences.
