Since 2019, AiFi's OASIS autonomous store platform is operating in 10 checkout-free stores in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

Last update:

AiFi is on track to deploy 330 new and retrofitted autonomous stores by the end of 2021. AiFi's OASIS, the Orchestrated Autonomous Store Infrastructure and Services, is already powering 10 futuristic stores in a variety of sizes in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, and San Antonio in the U.S., in Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Paris, and Poznan in Europe and in the city of Shanghai in Asia.

In addition to the publicly known partnerships with Albert Heijn, Carrefour, Żabka, and Loop Neighborhood, AiFi is also actively deploying autonomous stores with several companies.

The 330 AiFi OASIS-based autonomous stores range from 800-square-foot convenience stores and travel shops to 10,000-square-foot grocery stores. They are located primarily in the U.S. and Europe, with additional stores coming to Australia, Asia, and South America.

"We are going to see explosive growth in autonomous stores. With the onset of COVID-19, the need is even more urgent for a contactless and autonomous retail store where you can shop and feel safe in a physical environment," said Steve Gu, CEO and co-founder, AiFi. "The 10 deployed stores are operational or in advanced stages of testing. These stores have proven to be stable, accurate, and popular among shoppers who love the lightning speed and fluid retail experience."
