Robot Comes Ready To Banish More Human Workers From Retail Stores

November 10, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Silicon Valley startup Simbe Robotics introduced Tally, a robot designed to help retail companies monitor their store shelves. Designed to perform inventory tasks faster than humans can do, the robot can finish scanning a CVS, Walgreens, or a small grocery store in 30 to 40 minutes, according to CEO Brad Bogolea. Tally can record data on 15,000 to 20,000 products in an hour, Bogolea said. Simbe Robotics is selling Tally as a service and is considering selling the information it gathers from store shelves.
