If you need to complete a purchase anywhere at any time it will take you less than 10 seconds, simply scan the code, open the door, take the purchase and close the door. Recently, mobile payments have become more and more popular in Chinese modern cities, and the next step is smart containers. JD Daojia, the first unmanned shelf brand, is driving the new trend in unmanned shopping and has realized the concept of an intelligent container. 


A few days ago, JD Daojia released its third generation of intelligent container, and upgraded the 2.0 version from the supply chain system. The new intelligent container was officially introduced by combining the first and second generation identification methods, which includes dual complementary technology of dynamic visual recognition, weight sensors and a reduction with the loss rate.

In order to improve the accuracy of product identification, the cameras on the new container are high-definition, which can ensure more high-definition photos. At the same time, big data has conducted multi-dimensional training on commodity models. Each product will collect more than 8,000 images, ensuring that each scene and each type of simulation are taken offline. At the same time, after intelligent optimization, the intelligent container replenishment cost rate dropped to 50 percent. The Smart Supply Chain 2.0 optimizes its on-demand replenishment through the replenishment speed and replenishment route.

With the upgrades to containers and product supply chains, the intelligent container uses big data and user portrait analysis to help JD engage users' demands, selecting suitable products that meet users' preferences and can make better recommendations to them. By relying on AI technology, JD Daojia can offer a smart shopping experience to users.

For any emerging business, the iterative update of technology is the basis for its market advancement and innovation. The above mentioned Intelligent Containers have been stationed at top Chinese enterprises, and scattered around major first- and second-tier cities.
