Trigo, an Israel-based computer vision company disrupting retail with frictionless checkout technology, is partnering with discount supermarket giant Netto Marken-Discount (also known as Netto) on a hybrid checkout-free grocery store in Munich, Germany.
Trigo transforms existing supermarkets into fully autonomous or hybrid digital stores, combining AI technology with ceiling-mounted cameras to create a seamless shopping experience. Shoppers use an app to scan a QR code as they enter, and then will be free to pick up items and leave without having to go to the till. The purchase amount is automatically deducted via the registered payment method stored in the app.
Owned by The EDEKA Group, one of the largest food chains in the world, Netto has over 4,000 stores across Germany, and offers one of the largest overall selection of groceries in the German discount market. The company now marks its first ever hybrid checkout-free store.Business Wire
