Pop-Up Autonomous Retail


Some of the biggest trends in retail have been pop-up stores, cashierless/staffless stores (e.g. Amazon Go), digital signage, electronic shelf labels (ESL), and green solutions. This portable innovation brought to us by showcases these benefits with Magento, other Adobe solutions, IOT, PWA, MSI, microcontrollers, 4G/5G, solar power, and other technologies.

This Magento-powered prototype from McFadyen Digital can transform last mile delivery by combining physical & digital (“phygital”) commerce. This autonomous store can be located anywhere (and easily relocated) for items carried in inventory (e.g. top sellers) or delivered to a locker (BOPIL). An ESL will pull product title, price, and other information from Magento.
