Modern realities, such as the recent pandemic, impose certain limitations on our capabilities. Germs can spread through the touch screens of information and self-service kiosks, which are now literally everywhere - in banks, shopping centers, fast food restaurants, gas stations, etc. Disinfection of touch screens is a kind of challenge - some disinfecting liquids can easily damage the device. But even if the screens are disinfected regularly, people still have a fear of touching them.
How can we make queue management germ-free?
Modern technologies such as face detection, speech recognition and synthesis can help us in this situation. Using them, you can turn a regular touch kiosk into a pleasant conversationalist who sees you, offers you to choose a service, hears you and registers, for example, in an electronic queue. Afraid to take a ticket - it's number can be displayed on the screen. Additionally, you can display a QR code that contains the information necessary for subsequent tracking of your turn.
