And that is why now the American chain of stores, BJ’s Wholesale, has just hired a robot with advanced artificial intelligence, manufactured by Simbe Robotics, and which they will place in each of its 237 stores.

The function of this robot is not only to monitor the corridors of the supermarketsbut also all the shelves to make sure that all the products have stock, and if there is not, notify the corresponding replenishers.

As can be read in the official statementTally autonomously walks the club’s aisles multiple times a day, leveraging computer vision technology to collect high-precision shelf data that ensures products are in-stock, properly stored, and accurately priced.”.

By rolling out Tally across all of our club locations, we’ll gain unprecedented insights leveraging real-time data, allowing us to continually improve our operation and ensure we’re delivering the best possible experience for both our team and members.”, they add.
