RLX Technology announced the latest upgrade of its minor protection system Sunflower System in its recent event held on 2nd September in Yanji, China. By using the newest system combining big data risk management and artificial intelligence, age verification process will become mandatory in RELX-branded store in China. RLX exclusively sells its products in mainland China. The latest version--Sunflower System 3.0 will be installed in the in-store point-of-sale machine, which means any customers intended to make a purchase, will need to verify their ID, name and face before the system can generate orders. Therefore, age verification becomes mandatory in stores as the customers and the store staffs cannot generate the purchase order before the procedure is done. The latest system will be installed in all RELX-branded stores in China by 1st October. RLX, which only sells RELX products in China, is also willing to open its system for the entire industry to adopt in the future. With the previous version, Sunflower System 2.0 adopted ID and facial recognition technologies to ensure that only adults can purchase products in its stores. Any person not able to show legal, valid identification that proves they are an adult will be asked to leave the RELX store.
