While not yet part of mainstream grocery technology, shelf-scanning robots like those from Badger Technologies are part of many grocers’ upcoming plans, according to RIS’s recent Retail Technology Study.
Grocery store automation was growing steadily well before the pandemic, but the rise in e-commerce and the need for increased in-store safety, has made a novel-but-promising technology the wave of the future.
Grocery store robots scan shelves to maintain optimal stock levels, help support employee social distancing and minimize or eliminate less efficient tasks. Through automation, grocers can improve accuracy, reduce costs, and support other innovations, such as micro-fulfillment and even delivery in the future.
Retail robotics is just one of many exciting grocery technology innovations that increase accuracy, improve store management, and deliver greater profits.
