The warehouse club division of Walmart is giving its in-store robotic fleet more work.
Inventory scan functionality is being added the fleet of autonomous floor scrubbers that Sam’s Club operates in its stores nationwide in partnership with Brain Corp. and Tennant Company. The Tennant robots (T7AMR) are automated by Brain Corp.’s BrainOS artificial intelligence platform. The deployment marks the first commercial application of Brain Corp.’s inventory scanning technology anywhere in the world.
The new scanning accessory, which features a dual-function design, will be fitted to the roughly 600 autonomous floor scrubbers already deployed within Sam’s Club stores. Once installed on the scrubber, the new, cloud-connected inventory scan tower is able to capture data as it moves autonomously around the store.Chain Store Sge
