As a leading company focusing on AI retail industry, SandStar‘s products like AI Smart Kiosks, Smart Shops have been adopted by a wide range of famous brands like Coca-Cola, HMSHost, Compass, etc., enabling more and more people to shop in a faster, safer way. Customers can simply swipe a card to open the door of a smart kiosk, and grab whatever they need, then they are free to go because the checkout is automatic. The receipt will be sent to their cellphone in a short time. This grab-and-go shopping experience is really convenient and efficient.
This kind of vending machine leverages AI or sensor fusion technology, which is a totally new achievement of research and development in retail industries. But only a few people know that some of the traditional vending machines can be upgraded to smart ones by simply adopting a retrofit plan of SandStar. This retrofit plan includes the deployment of hardwares like cameras, light bars, and also servers, which is the most crucial part about being “smart”.
In 2021, SandStar has developed the first microcomputer in the AI retail industry: SandStar Venus. As a terminal server for smart retail, the microcomputer is compacted with an entire set of functions such as the AI chip, the software model, and the Internet interface, running six times better than traditional servers in compute performance.
By adopting a SandStar Venus and its accessories such as cameras, the vending machine will be fully powered by AI technology. It can “see” and “think” like a human, knowing what products are taken out and put back and how many are taken. It responds more quickly than you can imagine. Customers will benefit a lot from the excellent compute performance: more accurate receipts, faster checkout experiences.
Today, since AI retail technologies are still cutting edge, the renowned companies in the retail industry have demonstrated a stronger desire to use cutting-edge technologies to empower their operations. No matter if you are looking for a whole vending machine solution or a retrofit plan, SandStar Venus is always a good choice and a guarantee for you to stand shoulder to shoulder with the top retail brands.
