Autonomous Bots to Help Manage Walmart Shelf Inventory

AUVSI News reported that Bossa Nova Robotics produces the robots, which check pricing, labeling and misplacement of products, and then report any anomalies to human workers.  Chief technology officer for Walmart U.S. and ecommerce, Jeremy King, noted that these bots are “50 percent more productive than their human counterparts,” owing to greater accuracy and the ability to scan shelves 3X faster than humans.
