Mashgin, the world’s fastest touchless self-checkout system powered by AI and computer vision, today announced it has won a Gold Edison™ Award for Innovative Services, AI-Powered Platforms.

The 2022 Edison Award Winners represent a diverse population of people, products, industries, and target communities.
“For decades, the Edison Awards have introduced the world to companies that have gone on to change our businesses and lives,” Mashgin CEO and co-founder Abhinai Srivastava said. “To be included in the same ranks is humbling and a testament to all of the hard work done by the Mashgin team.

Consumers simply place their items on the Mashgin kiosk tray, pay, and go — in 10 seconds or less. Mashgin’s touchless checkout solution is found in 800+ locations, including convenience stores, cafeterias, stadiums, hospitals, and airports. Mashgin systems complete transactions as much as 400% faster than cashiers and 800% faster than traditional self-checkout.
“The 2022 Edison Award winners are not only innovators but also leaders in their field and community. We award this honor for the technological advances and their impact on industry. We know that Mashgin’s innovation will have long-lasting effects on the world,” said Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of the Edison Awards.
