Interactive Vending Machine
Modern coin-operated vending machines were originally designed to dispense postcards and were typically located at railway stations and post offices. Before long, they were used serve basic goods in retail settings, before eventually moving to residential and sparsely populated areas. This trend has continued and even expanded in modern times. With relatively recent advancements in technology, a new retail revolution has gradually emerged and has transformed traditional vending machines into comprehensive interactive vending machines or even unmanned shops. These facilities are set to become a new type of retail mutual sales system in cities and suburbs, and in addition to providing consumers with more choices, they also solve human resource problems and can collect big data on consumer usage patterns. These data provide manufactures with useful information for developing new products that are a closer match to consumers’ needs.
