“We give checkouts the power of sight.”
This is the task the start up auvisus from Karlsruhe, Germany has set itself. Fed up with the long queues at the university’s cafeteria the founders came up with the idea of developing an autonomous self-checkout that would shorten the waiting time.
The visioncheckout was born. The cafeteria of the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology was the first place of operation, many have followed since. auvisus’ clients are delighted with the unusually simple self-checkout.
The goal of the ambitious team is to become the standard for the checkout process in canteens, making lunchtime more enjoyable for people around the world.

Payment

The payment completes the checkout process

The visioncheckoutuses AI-powered computer vision to automatically recognize the guest’s items and book them into the POS system. During its development, it has learned patterns to recognize food and it is still getting better with every image.
More than 7 million neurons recognize the articles in only 0.5 seconds – regardless of where they are located. The visioncheckoutassigns them the correct name and books them directly into the POS-System. The payment process is completed with the usual payment method.

"The visioncheckout is user-friendly and works flawlessly. The recognition of the dishes is very reliable and it is easy to train the system. This is the future of the checkout."

Operations manager - Aramark
