Having an age-restricted vending machine can help vendors verify their customers’ age before allowing the purchase of items like tobacco, alcohol, medication, etc. The user is required to use their government ID, which is then mapped with the 3D image of their face. Businesses can thus use the installed vending and kiosk machines to sell their products safely without physically attending to them. The pandemic has increased consumer interest in automation and robots to eliminate human interaction during transactions. Vending machines with age verification may contribute to this while also making the process faster, more secure, and more user-friendly.
With CLEA you can enable age verification checks in vending machines. When age verification is enabled, the machine will ask the user to show his/her ID as well as ask the person to show his/her face. We also check for the liveness of the person by making sure the person is moving – a person is real and not another picture.
We have incorporated a demo of Age Verification on the cloud itself. Please use the app to see.
