The JD.com delivery stations are carrying out Research and Development activities, testing and personnel training to solve last mile issues. The delivery robots can be loaded with up to 30 parcels or packages before autonomously delivering them to consumers’ doorsteps within a five-kilometer radius. The delivery bots employ facial recognition technology that gives the user easy and secure access to their package.
The e-Commerce giant also showcased its drone delivery capabilities. Visitors will be able to see first-hand how JD.com’s drones deliver goods using a VR headset, while also catching a glimpse of its fully automated warehouses.
Collectively, JD.com’s innovations are designed to realize the company’s “Boundaryless Retail” vision, in which consumers can buy whatever they want, whenever and wherever they want it.
