Smiley the robot is a new member of the Mars Wrigley staff and it was created to bring consumers candy as they shop in stores. The bot was created to bring the items normally found at the checkout to customers throughout the store, and like an ice cream truck, it makes its presence known in the aisles with a catchy tune.
With self-driving technology, the robot helps to enhance in-store shopping experiences and response to the changing ways people are shopping. As more people rely on self-checkout solutions, Smiley the robot has the potential to shift when people choose to make impulse purchases. Mars Wrigley is working with the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the United States and Smiley can be found at ShopRite store in Monroe, NY.Source: Trend Hunter
