China Facts: the move towards autonomous stores


"Autonomous stores", such as the F5 Future Store with headquarters in Guangzhou, are developing another blueprint for OMO (online merges with offline). F5 sells popular items common in regular convenience stores, including hot meals. Like Amazon Go, F5 is fully autonomous (done by machines), from meal preparation to check-out. But in a stop ahead of Amazon Go, F5 is scaleable and profitable. In the future, these stores will be equipped with sensors that can discern a customers's identity, movements, behaviour and even intent, as seamlessly as if someone was clicking around an e-commerce website*)
