Walmart Laying Off Robots
Walmart is laying off the robots it had incorporated in about 500 stores to keep tabs on what's on and not on the shelves.
Walmart said last week it has ended its relationship with startup Bossa Nova Robotics, which builds robots equipped with cameras for identifying out-of-stock and misplaced products. Walmart said in a statement it has "worked with Bossa Nova for five years and together we learned a lot about how technology can assist associates, make jobs easier, and provide a better customer experience." It said it is still testing other new technologies for tracking inventory and moving goods.
Unnamed people familiar with the situation said the retailer found human workers could get similar results. There was also some concern about how shoppers reacted to robots doing the work.
