Many companies around the world

have been experimenting with automated stores

that serve customers without a staff of employees.

These stores use state-of-the-art hardware and software

to take the trouble out of shopping and checking out.

世界各地的許多公司一直在試驗自動化商店

這些商店皆採用最先進的硬體設施以及軟體來免除購物及結帳的麻煩 事。

 

In late January of 2018,

the President Chain Store Corporation (PCSC) joined the ranks

by opening their first unmanned store in Taipei, Taiwan.

Located at their corporate headquarters,

this experiment has been called the X-store by the PCSC.

 

In order to serve customers more efficiently,

the X-Store has the latest technology,

including artificial intelligence, facial recognition software,

and special checkout hardware.

They have even built a few friendly robots

to clean the store and greet customers.
