E-paper technology to support unmanned retail outlet in Hong Kong Science Park
Serving as an energy-efficient display technology, E-paper technology enhances multiple Smart City applications

Launched in January 2019 as part of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation’s (HKSTP) “Journey to a Smart City – An Innovation Showcase”, the T-Shop & Lab is the first retail store set up in Hong Kong Science Park to provide unmanned shopping experience to the public and a platform for showcasing related technologies.

Solomon Systech Limited, a partner company to HKSTP announced in August 2019 that its E-paper technology has been adopted for use in Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL) to facilitate retail digitization. This technology with its pioneering energy efficient feature can also be integrated into a myriad of applications for Smart City solutions.

ESLs offer many advantages for retailers, such as enabling flexible inventory control, reducing overheads costs, allowing for dynamic and highly accurate online and offline pricing strategies, improving brand image, while enhancing the shopping experience with a clearer view of product prices.

Raymond Wang, CEO, Solomon Systech Limited, said, “Our E-Paper display driver IC for ESLs has already been adopted for use in a number of renowned supermarkets, unmanned stores and convenient stores in China, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Europe and US. We are most delighted to be one of the members to support HKSTP’s T-Shop & Lab, and we believe that ESLs will very soon gain wide acceptance in Hong Kong.”

Peter Yeung, Head of Electronics & ICT Clusters, Smart City Platform, HKSTP, said, “We are proud to see Solomon Systech’s technology being tested and applied in such a practical solution for an unmanned retail experience, adding many new functionalities and benefits in running a physical outlet.”

Mr Yeung added,” Science Park will continue to provide a living laboratory for our park companies to test and fine-tune their solutions for deployment in a real-world environment.”
