We give checkouts the power of sight

At auvisus, we’re conducting AI research that advances the state-of-the-art, with the goal to make lunch breaks more enjoyable.

Our story

The founding team of auvisus met while studying at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where we decided to find a technical solution for long lines in the canteen. We developed the visioncheckout, a system that uses AI-based computer vision to automatically recognize the articles placed on a customer’s tray.

Based in Karlsruhe, auvisus today serves leading companies with a frictionless automated checkout process – which does not only result in a beautiful customer experience but also in lower costs as well as higher sales for operators.

The award-winning visioncheckout delivers industry-leading performance on the measures that matter most: accuracy, speed, flexibility and simplicity. We also accelerate time-to-value with our standardized and open API that allows for a quick integration with any POS system.

Our goal is to deploy visioncheckouts wherever people enjoy food around the world and become the norm for how people buy their lunch.
