With the rapid development of the Internet of Things and growing popularity of mobile Internet, modern consumers’ expectations for services anytime, anywhere are fuelling a new breed of smart city installations. To rise up to this challenge many businesses such as banks, shops, restaurants and hotels have been embracing interactive kiosks to improve customer service, boost sales and revenue, and increase brand awareness.
Combining a user-friendly touchscreen interface with support for multiple payment methods, smart kiosks are quickly becoming an essential gateway for new O2O services. They can handle the plethora of everyday transactions, from paying utility bills, phone bills and parking tickets, to ordering groceries, buying goods, as well as offering automated check-in services. Smart kiosks can also serve as information points providing insights to local events, special offers or optimum commute connections. With the advantage of 24/7 operation and ability to integrate various O2O platforms, smart kiosks provide a one-stop service point to satisfy the needs of today’s smart communities.
To meet this growing demand for smart community service hubs, VIA StreetWise IoT solutions combine an ultra-reliable, high-performance system hardware platform with a stable Android software framework that enables the rapid development of multimedia-rich applications and services, using touch, voice, and wireless interfaces.
