With NexCOBOT solutions, the user would approach the interactive kiosk at entry point to register in as little as 30 seconds by snapping a facial image and inputting key information. Upon return visits, the user would be welcomed with their own name and targeted advertising, broadcasted by intelligent hospitality signage according to personal background or shopping history from cloud database. That would be almost like a receiving a greeting and message from a neighbor. In addition, at self-service checkout kiosk, the user can easily check out by simply placing items on the platform to automatically activate object detection along with the entire calculation process, including the weight of items such as fruits and vegetables. The user then completes the transaction through selected payment methods.


Further, it is also possible for a user to order coffee at home through a shop’s APP, which would then activate the coffee machine as soon as the user is facially recognized when entering the shop. Once the coffee is ready, the smart coffee serving system notifies the user. These are just a few examples of great ideas that can be realized.
