Walmart is rolling out thousands of robot helpers in US stores

Walmart is gearing up to deploy thousands of robots in its stores across the US. The retailer already features some robotic equipment in select stores, but this will mark a huge expansion of the program, adding autonomous floor cleaners, shelf scanners, rapid uploaders, and pickup towers. Walmart provided specific numbers for its planned expansion, revealing that it will add the following numbers and types of robots to its stores throughout the nation: 1,500 Auto-C autonomous floor cleaners, 300 Auto-S shelf scanners, 1,200 Fast Unloaders, and 900 Pickup Towers. These robots will joint the existing machines already in use at some Walmart stores.
