The new solution for next-generation Vending Machine is realized in collaboration with the main Intelligent Vending Partner of AAEON – Invenda, and technology partners – AIM for AI and VISA for the payments.
AAEON Technology Europe BV announces the new, outstanding solution in partnership with Invenda, AIM2, Selecta, and VISA. At the European Vending & Coffee Service Association event in Seville, EVEX (15-16th November) AAEON will showcase the machine which will help to ease integration of the new solutions, such direct, targeted marketing at POS, data collection, optimize product display and offerings, cost saving but also eliminate waste and minimizing OPEX.
Each Vending Machine is connected to the backend cloud service through the secure network connection (HTTPS) and will communicate over encrypted channels. Also, the solution will result in efficient servicing and cost saving, digitalization of customer interaction (individually optimized) and real-time inventory, transaction details, and complete machine status.
The power of AAEON edge computing solutions allowed the additional integration of Artificial Intelligence-based solution from AIM2, for audience recognition and cataloging, ID and product recognition, all on the edge without the need of any cloud-based AI solution.
The machine we are showing at “EVEX” offers independent modules for:
• Device management / centralized monitoring
• Device inventory and automated pricing
• Digital signage / marketing
• Transaction and location data collection
• Facial recognition with statistics and targeted marketing Analytics for
dynamic content generation, product selection, optimization based on customers and environment, predictive servicing, filling, and maintenance
• Biometric payment capability
Merging different expertise we could put together new technologies that are revolutionizing several aspects of the classic machines.
AAEON off the shelf hardware for Intelligent Vending and Artificial Intelligence help to ease the integration of new solutions on existing vending machines, such as motor control, payment integration, customer and product recognition.
Invenda’s solution revolutionizes every aspect of automated retail from how the customer approaches the machine to how operators select products. It enhances existing revenue streams and introduces new ones.
