CDR Eco-Movement, Inc. (located in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, with Akira Kondo as the CEO) is incorporating AI provided by MENOU Corporation (MENOU, headquartered in Chuo-ku, Tokyo, with CEO Reiteru Nishimoto) into their “C-DreAm / AI Automatic Grading System” for used smartphone grading. We have introduced a smaller version of this product for retail purposes.

We will showcase a demo at CEATEC 2023, which is scheduled to take place at Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba City) from October 17, 2023.

In this system, we have addressed the industry-wide issue of variations in assessment quality by training MENOU’s AI with the inspection expertise of our skilled grading technicians. This enables a standardized grading process, eliminating the inconsistencies in evaluation quality that were previously prevalent in the industry.

The device is designed to be space-efficient, with dimensions of 450 millimeters in width, 450 millimeters in depth, and 606 millimeters in height. This compact design allows it to be used in retail settings with limited space.

To closely mimic human assessment, the system utilizes a special optical system employing mirrors (with patented technology), enabling assessments that closely resemble human judgment. When a smartphone is placed inside the device, the AI automatically begins the assessment process, capturing images of all 10 surfaces to determine the level of damage. The assessment results are then displayed.
