UBTECH Cruzr teams up with Thai mobile retailer giant Jaymart to promote Thailand's industry 4.0 and AI
BANGKOK, Oct. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

On October 11, Shenzhen-based Ubtech Robotics Corp., the world's leading 
humanoid robot research and development firm, signed a MoU with three of 
Thailand's leading organizations in their respective sectors: mobile retailer 
Jaymart, the Institute of Field Robotics (FIBO), and anti-counterfeiting 
printing group Chan Wanich Security Printing.

In a move with epoch-making significance in terms of the transformation of the 
traditional retail store model, nearly 1000 UBTECH Cruzr robots will be 
deployed in service roles at Jaymart, supporting Thailand's push to embrace 
industry 4.0 and AI and promote new social services.

Thai Deputy Minister of Industry Mr. Somchai Harnhirun attended the signing 
ceremony and spoke highly of the signing of the MoU. As part of its industry 
4.0 strategy, Thailand has identified emerging industries as new engines for 
economic development. Deputy Minister of Industry Mr. Somchai Harnhirun noted 
that Thailand already has a solid industrial base, and that the collaboration 
with UBTECH will spur the development of new sectors while further enhancing 
the competitiveness of the country's dominant industries. Further facilitating 
the development of Thailand's industry 4.0, UBTECH plans to collaborate with 
the three signers of the MoU to accelerate the establishment of smart cities by 
using innovative AI robot products and technologies.

FIBO founder Dr Djitt Laowattana said the partnership with UBTECH is the first 
step in its technological transformation.

Jaymart CEO Adisak Sukumvitaya said it is a great honor to work with FIBO and 
UBTECH to bring in the world's leading AI and robotic products and 
technologies, which will deliver a more personalized and caring experience to 
the retailer's customers.

UBTECH overseas sales deputy general manager Peng Wu delivered a keynote 
speech, during which he elaborated on the role of AI and robotics in advancing 
human society, and the expectations he has for UBTECH in further invigorating 
Thailand's new retail and utilities sectors.

The nearly 1000-strong squadron of Cruzr robots is expected to be a major 
disruptor to the traditional retail model and revamp what shopping means for 
the country's consumers. The Cruzr robot with its comprehensive set of fully 
integrated functionalities is the first scenario-oriented, easy-to-use and 
efficient solution that can serve the entire retail industry chain from 
experience to marketing and management.

The deployment of the Cruzr robots is expected to help Jaymart reduce costs, 
enhance efficiency and improve the customer experience as the retailer 
transitions to a new retail model based on consumer experience, offline points 
of sale and data management.

Meeting the diverse and personalized needs of consumers today, Jaymart actively 
embraces new AI robot technologies to create a new digital retail model. The 
alliance with UBTECH will serve as an illustration for other retailers, and the 
successful model is expected to soon be replicated in other markets.
