Intelligent industry demand explodes under the epidemic

'Based on 5G, Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence, building a smart city based on the digital twin to realize the development from digitalization to intelligence' 'Industrial artificial intelligence is the foundation of intelligent manufacturing' ...... forum, academicians such as Li Deren and Chai Tianyou brought cutting-edge knowledge of big data.

Smart retail is a hot topic that has emerged in recent years, from grab-and-go unmanned vending machines in shopping malls to pay-as-you-go mobile phone payments. Smart retail is different from traditional retail and e-commerce retail models. It relies on powerful IoT, Internet and artificial intelligence technologies to achieve 24-hour online and offline integration, on-site remote integration, reservation and buy-now balance, ready-to-eat and takeaway, which is fast and convenient, saves labour costs and ensures constant quality, making it a promising new economy and new business model.

Under the epidemic, the demand for intelligent industrial development has been stimulated again, which also means that the opportunity for a new round of industrial transformation and upgrading has come.

Robot coffee to help transform traditional industries

During this year's epidemic control, a robot that 'makes coffee with zero contact with customers' was favoured by many young white-collar workers in the lobby of an office building in Shanghai.

It is surrounded by a variety of small instruments and accessories, and a hot latte is ready in less than a minute, from the time the order is placed to the time the coffee is taken. The coffee, which usually costs around 30 RMB in a coffee shop, costs only 9.9 RMB in this robot coffee kiosk called 'COFE+'.

The cost of making coffee in traditional coffee shops has been rising year on year due to high rent, high decoration, high labour and high wastage. Starbucks closed 200 shops in the first half of this year, and Ruixing is also suspected of a huge loss of $4 billion, according to statistics 70% of physical coffee shops are not profitable. The arrival of the robot coffee kiosk COFE+ has completely changed all this, with no decoration, unattended, 24-hour operation, only 3.5KW rated power, smaller footprint and never fatigue continuous production, making the cost of a cup of coffee straight down by 70%.

At the same time, as coffee becomes the drink of choice for more and more young people, the demand for coffee from office groups is growing, the way coffee is consumed is constantly being renovated, and the quality requirements for coffee have been improved, with more willingness to choose cost-effective and easy access, thus promoting the rapid development of the unmanned self-service intelligent coffee machine industry. Compared to opening a physical shop, unmanned self-service smart coffee machines have the advantage of lower costs and easy to achieve standardised operation.

In the post-epidemic era, COFE+ robotic coffee kiosks start with intelligent technology, not only breaking through the traditional physical shop model, but also upgrading the traditional vending machine's 'stale goods arrangement' model, now grinding and making personalised and customised goods, reducing human contact in multiple links, which is in line with the current form and will be the future trend, pointing out a new technology path for the future development of the real economy.
