Wakefern Food Corp. has opened The Pantry, a checkout-free convenience store for the workers at its Edison, New Jersey campus that features Trigo technology.
This uses computer vision with a series of cameras and shelf sensors to identify products picked up by people.
“Our associates can shop The Pantry at work for groceries they need at home while simultaneously providing helpful feedback for us on the technology,” says Charles McWeeney, VP of Technology, Innovation and Strategy at Wakefern.
“The chance to evolve in the self-service space at retail is important and we hope to learn more about frictionless checkout and how we can potentially provide this cutting-edge and convenient technology to Wakefern member owned businesses.”
