Mashgin’s touchless self-checkout system was officially named the "top cool new product" at October's National Association of Convenience Stores Show in Chicago. The accolade comes after Mashgin’s recent Stevie International Business Award for retail company of the year.
Mashgin is said to be the most-vetted computer vision powered self-checkout system with more than 550 locations that span convenience stores, corporate cafeterias, stadiums, hospitals and airports.
It can visually identify items from virtually any angle or orientation with 99.9% accuracy – without the need for barcodes or RFID, consistent packaging or any particular orientations. Customers simply place the items they wish to purchase on the Mashgin kiosk, pay, and are on their way in as little as 10 seconds.
Mashgin’s said its proprietary technology mimics the complexities of the human visual cognitive system into a simple but sophisticated system that creates an instantaneous checkout experience that’s as much as 400% faster than cashiers and 800% faster than traditional self-checkout systems.
