On Monday, Walmart announced that it will 'employ' robots to clean its stores.
Expected to deploy 360 “Auto-C” robots at stores by January-end 2019, the retail giant looks like going big on technology to streamline operations. "We're excited to work with Brain Corp in supporting our retail operations and providing our associates with a safe and reliable technology," said John Crecelius, Walmart's vice president of central operations. "BrainOS is a powerful tool in helping our associates complete repetitive tasks so they can focus on other tasks within role and spend more time serving customers."
Walmart already uses robots to assist in inventory management and in handling online orders.
