PAL Robotics launched a disruptive robot able to take autonomous inventory in retail stores and warehouses using RFID technology. StockBot provides an exhaustive control of products and its location in the store. Updated data allows to avoid out-of-stock situations and misplacements, reasons that cause the 70% of lost sales in department stores. StockBot also avoids human error and the uncertainty of not having a full guarantee to trust on manual inventory. StockBot doesn’t need human intervention, so shop assistants can focus on more important tasks and inventory can be done daily. As a result, employees have time to improve user experience and sales are increased.
StockBot is 1,90 m tall and 50 cm wide – it can work wherever a wheelchair can go – and is able to navigate through corridors without problems. StockBot works every night without supervision, automatically adapting itself to any change in the shop without needing to reconfigure it. The robot has 8 hours of autonomy and charges completely in 4 hours. Besides, misplacements detection and big data opportunities are also new advantages possible with this robot. StockBot is a cutting-edge solution to automating inventory, becoming the most advanced technology available for retail industries.
PAL Robotics is a company with more than 10 years of experience in autonomous humanoid robots, focused on disruptive service robots development. PAL Robotics designs, develops and sells highly integrated and reliable robotic solutions with diversified applications. During this decade, PAL Robotics gained a vast experience in navigation and interaction of the robots in real human environments. This experience is the basis for developing robots with a specific application like StockBot.
