Download the infographic to discover computer vision, a field of artificial intelligence (AI), and see why it’s the key technology enabling fans and customers to shop without the need for cashiers or other human assistance.

Fast. Secure. Cashierless. This is the core criteria today’s fans are looking for when it comes to improving concessions at parks and stadiums. Let’s be real—there’s little that’s more annoying than missing out on amazing gameplay because you were waiting in the concessions line for too long. Fans want autonomous checkout solutions to avoid this entirely:

  • 30% of global fans believe “being able to stay in their seat is the most important way to improve the food and beverage experience at the stadium, closely followed by faster transaction times.”
  • 59% of fans would spend more on food & beverage if wait times were shorter.
  • 63% of fans said they would use a self-servicing kiosk.

Computer vision, a field of artificial intelligence (AI), is the key technology enabling fans and customers to shop without the need for cashiers or other human assistance. How? This technology allows the store to “see” and track customers and products in real-time. Paired with the right autonomous store platform, computer vision allows customers to get into the store with a credit card or app, get the items they need, and walk out with an accurate receipt sent to them via email or SMS in minutes.

This is why it’s not at all surprising the global AI in computer vision market is growing at a CAGR of 21.5% and is forecast to reach a value of USD 17.2 billion in 2023 and USD 45.7 billion by 2028.
