QUEUE-less is a service for people who are dissatisfied with the time and energy they spend waiting for their turn. The service monitors the size of different queues and gives queuers the power to choose a shorter queue.

The team is working on this idea at the EIT Alumni Startup Days in Eindhoven. We have implemented a prototype counting the number of people in a coffee queue.
As a second iteration we are counting people entering and exiting from a conference room.

In the future we believe that the idea is most suitable for places where people do not want to bother taking out their phone, plan their queuing but want to get to a place faster (amusement parks, ski resorts, monuments, etc.)
