This Robot Keeps Store Shelves Stocked

 |  |  |  |  November 12, 2015


Grocery shopping is a necessity, but not particularly fun – especially when you discover that a store hasn’t stocked what you want to buy. This robot will help keep store shelves stocked to make your shopping experience a better one. This robot from Simbe Robotics is called Tally and it will scan store shelves and lets workers know when goods are running out or in the wrong place.

With the robot in operation, a stockboy will no longer have to make a visual inspection by walking down the aisles. Tally can even work during normal business hours when customers are in the store, and it has a Roomba-like dock so it can charge easily whenever it is needed. Hopefully it won’t get in our way while we are shopping.

The robot is still in the testing phase with several North American retailers, so it will likely be a while before you see it in your store. With this robot on duty, stores are more likely to have what you are looking for. And the robots have just one more attack vector for the inevitable robopocalypse.
