AI Counter tech: future of unmanned retail stores and ability to scan objects
INFINIQ reveals next-generation retail tech at CES 2022
INFINIQ, an artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous driving data service company, unveiled its autonomous driving and retail innovation technology at CES 2022 from Jan. 5-7, 2022 in Las Vegas.
INFINIQ presents a self-checkout solution and CES 2022 Innovation Award winner “AI Counter”, which scans products without barcodes or consistent shapes (such as bread, fruits and vegetables) and even completes calculations through its own app. AI Counter is optimized for retail services and is attracting attention from global retail companies for its possibilities, including 24-hour stores, unmanned stores and self-checkout counters. AI Counter was named a CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree in both the Software & Mobile Apps and Smart Cities categories.
Further INFINIQ's innovations at CES 2022 include:
- AI store "Mealy," a retail concept that can be operated unmanned, 24/7, using vision AI technology. This interactive concept allowed CES 2022 attendees to walk through a real store with groceries while AI Counter tallied up their purchases and an abnormal behavior detection system monitored the behavior of shoppers.
- A data collection vehicle equipped with multi-sensors, including vision cameras, lidar and infrared/thermal imaging to collect high-quality data for autonomous driving, using sensor fusion technology to process the data and increase accuracy.
- AI Data service platform "MyCrowd," which builds high quality datasets for AI training. My Crowd guarantees high speed and accuracy by applying AI technology to data processes, providing one-stop services for 2D/3D data mapping, personal information anonymization, 3D annotation, and data quality verification.
- Data anonymization service "Wellid," which processes visual data so it cannot be recognized. Sensitive personal information such as faces and number plates can be anonymized, crucial to comply with global privacy regulations such as GDPR, the AI Act, CCPA, and CPRA. AI companies showed great interest in Wellid's capabilities at CES 2022.
