Unmanned retail stores can not only break the time limit of the traditional retail model, but also upgrade the shopping experience. Through RFID, big data, cloud computing and other technologies, users can be provided with more personalized product services and experiences, and social operations and precise marketing can be realized.
The RFID technology of unmanned stores is in the following three modes:
Pre-identification (identity) mode
The pre-identification (identity) mode means that when users open the smart merchandise cabinet or the door of an unmanned store, they need to perform identity recognition before shopping. For example, the unmanned store introduced by Auchan must scan the QR code (identity authentication) before entering, which is a typical pre-identification (identity) application. If the identification cannot be completed, the consumer will not be able to make shopping! Equipped with RFID tags and form corresponding electronic bills).
Identification-free (identity) mode
Identification-free (identity) mode means that users can purchase goods without identification. Generally, such unmanned stores will have an access control system. Consumers can directly enter the store through a physical switch. After the consumer enters, the access control is automatically locked. After the consumer completes the shopping and the payment is successful, the access control can be reopened. (The goods are equipped with RFID tags and form corresponding electronic bills).
Full open mode
Full open mode means that users can freely enter and exit the store, and can freely choose goods. The goods are equipped with RFID and QR code payment tags. Consumers can leave the store after selecting the goods and scanning the code to complete the payment. However, if you leave the shop without completing the payment, the access control system will automatically detect and alarm. The advantage of the fully open model is that it can solve the multi-point shopping settlement problem, while the store transformation is relatively controllable. If this mode is equipped with a small number of service personnel and combined with the application equipment combination of the first two modes, it is particularly suitable for convenience stores and supermarkets to form a new mode of combined application of manned and unmanned.
