Wal-Mart in more than 50 supermarkets placed shelves of scanning robots

October 27, according to US media reports, Wal-Mart is more than 50 stores to test the Storage Mezzaninescan robot. Previously, Wal-Mart has deployed a Storage Mezzanineautomatic scanning robot in some of its supermarkets, but has not tested it on a large scale.

Wal-Mart's shelf-scan robots come from the Posea Robotics Company, which can walk around the aisle, check for damage to the label of the goods, whether the price is correct and whether the items are dislocated, saving the workers time to check the goods. Although there are technical staff at any time next to detect to prevent errors, but these robots are completely automatic. The robot has a 3D imager that automatically discovers the obstruction and records it when the road is completely clogged and fed back to the staff.

Wal-Mart emphasizes Storage Mezzaninescanning robots just to assist human employees and will not replace them. They will help employees solve some tedious work. Because the Storage Mezzaninescanning robot does not have the grasping function, they can only remind the staff to supplement and arrange the goods in time.

Storage Mezzaninescanning robots will spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year on Wal-Mart, but they can help Wal-Mart quickly recover the cost. Whether to fully promote the Storage Mezzaninescan robot, also need more trials. But because of the early experimental results are very good, Wal-Mart in the future will certainly increase the input of various robots. After all, Wal-Mart is best at reducing all possible costs, especially human costs.
