This Robot Keeps Store Shelves Full

One of the most common tasks for retail workers is to look at the shelves, see which items are low, and restock those areas from storage. Now that task may be partially replaced with robots.

Simbe Robotics calls its invention Tally. This robot roams a store autonomously, scanning shelves, finding out which areas are low, and then telling human workers what items are needed. Then it plugs itself into a charging dock.

The company says that it's completely safe to use while the store is open and customers are present. It will remain loyal to its human masters when other robots rise up to destroy their fleshy creators.
