Kiosk Association (KMA) Publishes Articles of Organization for ADA
DENVER, Colo., February 17, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – February Self-Service News: KMA is pleased to announce its bylaws. The document is now available on the kma.global website. “This is another step towards strengthening the association and providing even more effective ADA accessibility and direction for the Association,” said Craig Keefner, director.
On February 16, 2022, we had our quarterly call with over 50 attendees. Topics included the next regulatory session scheduled for April, industry-wide certification options, and point-of-sale terminals. The eight newly appointed members of the US Access Board will be introduced at the March 9 meeting.
This month we published attorney Lainey Feingold’s lead article, Kiosk Accessibility – It’s The Law – Lainey is an expert in structured negotiation. We’ve added Marsha Mazz and David Capozzi as new honorary members of the Hall of Fame. And finally, the Senate formed a commission to modernize HIPAA.
And new technologies such as Smart City deployments and electric vehicle charging stations (News from Walgreens) use the general statement “units are ADA compliant.” It would be useful if these elements were documented. There are also data privacy concerns and the revenue potential of selling personal data.
Tech Highlight This Month
Lidar – Grabango C-Store’s new deployment continues the trend of ultimate contactless. 340 convenience stores and we can assume it’s lidar-based. Nourish-Bloom in Georgia also uses the same lidar technology. It’s the new “just in — just out” shopping model.
Events to come
Our next in-person event will be in Chicago on May 21 and at the National Restaurant Association Show. We’re at booth 6576 in the Tech Pavilion next to Epson and SpotOn.
June 8, 2022 in Las Vegas is InfoComm 2022 and we are an official InfoComm media partner. Big screens for menu boards, electric vehicle charging stations at places like Walgreens and Kohls.
