Yeah, let’s celebrate this.
Next time you are walking down an aisle at Walmart, don’t be surprised to see a small robot also wandering down the aisle beside you.
Walmart officials have expanded a pilot program that started in Pennsylvania three years ago into Burbank that is designed to handle the repeatable, predictable and manual task of scanning shelves for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels.
Burbank has been chosen as one of four Southern California stores to undergo the test.
What an honor to have been selected.
Will robots make good roommates in all those affordable $2200 a month apartments they want to build near our “transit centers”? Hope so.
