ROBO-VENDING / Smart Vending Machine


ROBO-VENDING is a vending machine with a movable interface, designed for people who find it difficult to obtain the products beyond their reach.
The majority of vending machines are difficult for children, elderly people and wheelchair users to use because of the products they want are set on a higher position of the interface.
ROBO-VENDING has a built-in camera and a distant sensor that can adjust the user interface automatically according to the users' height and position so that children, elderly people and wheelchair users can select products easily.
