Heute mal ein spannender Ausblick wie das Autohaus der Zukunft aussehen könnte, zumindest wenn es nach Alibaba geht. Stichwort: vending machines!
Customers will scan a car that they’re interested in using the Taobao shopping app developed by Alibaba. They can then pick a color, enter some basic information and take an all-important selfie.
Said selfie will be used to identify the individual when they head over to the unmanned vending machine. Facial recognition technology is used to match the person with their order, and the corresponding vehicle is taken out of storage.
At this point, they have three days to test the vehicle in order to determine whether they want to make a purchase. When they’ve made up their mind, they can take to the smartphone app to pay for it, or to arrange to return the car and schedule another test drive.
