Benefits of Age-Restricted Vending
How does age-restricted vending work?
Verifying IDs at unattended retail machines relies on the integration of AI software, biometric analysis, and image processing applications. The customer inserts their ID, which is authenticated using white light, UV light, and infrared light. Facial recognition is then used to match the customer to the ID. If both checks are passed, our software gives the green light for the machine to proceed with the transaction.
What are the PII requirements for unattended retail?
Vendors can select what happens with their customer’s personally identifiable information (PII), depending on local data privacy and product industry regulations, as well as minimum age for purchase.
