Israeli computer vision company Trigo, and Wakefern Food Corp., the U.S largest retailer cooperative, signed an agreement on Thursday to test an autonomous supermarket using Trigo’s AI-based frictionless checkout technology.

Wakefern is ShopRite’s logistics, distribution, and merchandising arm, which comprises 50 companies that own and operate about 360 retail supermarkets under the ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, Dearborn Market, Gourmet Garage, and Fairway Market banners.

Following multiple successful launches with some of Europe’s top ten retail partners – including Tesco in the United Kingdom and REWE, Aldi NORD, and Netto, all of which are owned by The EDEKA Group. The Wakefern testing marks Trigo’s first venture into the United States.

Trigo converts conventional supermarkets and grocers into fully autonomous, digital stores by integrating their technology with Trigo’s computer vision. After scanning a QR code with their smartphone upon entry, shoppers will be able to pick upitems and depart without having to check out.

“Trigo is proud to work with some of the largest grocery retailers around the world. Partnering with Wakefern Food Corp., was a natural step for the company,” said Michael Gabay, Trigo’s Co-Founder and CEO. “By helping Wakefern convert some store formats, or develop new ones that are exclusive to their brands, we can help them accelerate their growth within the market and pave the way for frictionless shopping in the future.”

“With Trigo’s frictionless technology, Wakefern Food Corp. is opening up access to cutting edge innovation for our members,” said Charlie McWeeney, VP of Technology, Innovation, & Strategy, Wakefern Food Corp. “We are excited to pilot Trigo’s solution and offer our consumers the ultimate in checkout convenience.”
