walmart卖场里的机器人

机器人的应用离老百姓越来越近了,沃尔玛在卖场里用Bossa Nova生产的机器人参与卖家简单工作了。

Inside 50 of Walmart’s U.S. stores, robots resembling vacuum cleaners affixed with small, sleek towers, patrol the aisles, checking whether the shelves are stocked with enough toilet paper and that laundry detergent has the correct price tag.


Walmart is testing the robots, built by Bossa Nova Robotics, to see if they can monitor store inventory more cheaply than human workers. The test reflects the increasing adoption of technology by big retailers as they try to keep up with online retail giant Amazon , which uses robots in some of its warehouses in addition to other cutting-edge technology.

Target and Lowe’s   are already testing robots in physical stores for handling mundane jobs like scanning shelves. Target, for example is using the robotic services of the startup Simbe Robotics to scan aisles.

Every day, one of Walmart’s robots rolls down every aisle three times to check that over 150,000 products are where they should be on store shelves, Martin Hitch, chief business officer for Bossa Nova Robotics, said Monday at the MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital conference in San Francisco. The robot will keep a record whether there isn’t enough toilet paper, or if an item doesn’t have the right price tag. From there, a human store clerk will either re-stock the aisle or put the right price tag on the product, because the robots are not physically capable of doing so.

Among the findings from Walmart’s test is that people’s perceptions change the longer they see the robots in action. For example, two years ago when Bossa Nova first installed a robot at a Walmart store in rural Pennsylvania, local residents were very curious about the machines and spent time gawking at them, Hitch said, but they now completely ignore them.

“It’s allowed to do its job,” Hitch said.

When asked how different types of people react to the robots, Hitch said that children, particularly school children, tend to be “very respectful of the robot.” Adults, on the other hand, sometimes either goof around with the robots by asking how they are doing or other silly questions, or ignore them.

Teenagers, however, pose a challenge for Bossa Nova’s Walmart robots because of their “mischievous” nature, Hitch said.

“We’ve been hit with shopping bags,” Hitch said about the robots. “We’ve been deliberately kicked.”

Hitch said that Bossa Nova has gotten used to teenagers playing pranks on robots, and that the company has taken that into account in its robot designs. Presumably, these robots must be built in a way that they can withstand having cans of tomato soup thrown at them by high schoolers.

Another thing Bossa Nova did was to design the robots to look more “friendly” to humans by installing a small display screen and lighting on its small body. The screen and lighting, which is also where the robot’s main computer resides, helps distract people from the larger mini-tower affixed to the robot, on which is affixed sensors that scan items on the shelf.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

Hitch said that when the company asked customers to describe the robot, “nobody realized it was two meters tall” because they focused on the smaller robot body (resembling the Star Wars cylindrical robot R2-D2) and not its tower, which comprises the bulk of the robot’s height of around 6.5 feet.

Walmart hasn’t revealed if it’s saving money by using Bossa Nova’s robots, but considering it’s testing them out in more stores, the retail company appears to be pleased its spending money on the startup.

发完才发现,其实福步的数据库里早收集过这个公司的信息

如今,零售超市的许多工作仍然由人工进行处理,工作量极为繁杂。加上库存产品丢失、商品摆放位置错误、不精准的库存统计等问题,每年给零售商带来巨大损失。

总部位于美国旧金山的机器人公司Bossa Nova Robotics近日宣布获得1750万美元的B轮融资,领投方为Paxion Capital Partners,参投方包括WRV Capital、Lucas Venture Group、Cota Capital及英特尔资本。截止目前,该公司的融资总额已超过了4000万美元。

Bossa Nova公司推出的机器人Tally可以通过避障探测在超市里自主导航,利用自身的传感器将捕捉到的数据进行分析,然后根据货架上商品的存放情况进行及时补货,同时进一步优化库存。用户还可根据需要来调节机器人的“身高”;当电能不足的时候,它还会自己返回到充电底座上。

这个基于自动化库存分析系统的机器人可以服务各大超市和零售店,从而大幅减轻人工服务员的工作负担。得益于本轮最新融资,该公司计划将其机器人产品部署在沃尔玛超市,现在他们已经和50家沃尔玛超市门店达成了运营支持合作。
