Various types of drones, unmanned vehicles delivery, contactless delivery is becoming more and more popular; intelligent coffee robots 'on board service', 24-hour non-stop work ...... due to traffic control and epidemic prevention requirements and other reasons, many companies began to think about using robots to undertake Some simple and repetitive work, artificial intelligence into the service era.

The future has come by liberating manpower and responding to the market

In front of Shanghai's Longemont shopping center, there is an intelligent robot coffee kiosk, which covers less than 2.5 square meters and takes less than a minute to make a cup of freshly ground coffee, attracting consumers to line up and stop to buy.

Artificial intelligence liberates manpower, the Internet of Things liberates equipment, and the Internet liberates time and space. Compared with physical coffee shops, robotic coffee kiosks not only change the cost structure, saving labor, water and telephone costs, wear and tear costs, but also respond to the trend of using technology and depersonalization in the service industry to improve standardization, stability, 24-hour service, and high quality and affordable prices.

In 2020, we are looking for business opportunities in the 'crisis' and moving forward in the 'battle'. 2021 will be a new beginning, a new journey, the opportunity has come, do you see it?
