If you see a six-foot-tall robot roaming your neighborhood supermarket in the next few months, it’s not an escaped Roomba run amok. It will be a pilot test of Trax Retail’s image recognition technology mounted on a robot from Fetch Robotics. The devices are designed to take pictures of store shelves and upload the images to Trax for analysis, allowing out-of-stock and misplaced items to be identified quickly. “The devices allow a retailer to compare their planogram to the ‘real-o-gram,'” said Doug Benson, Director of Marketing, Americas for Trax Retail in this TouchPoints TV video from the NRF Big Show 2017. Trax anticipates receiving feedback data from the retailers piloting the technology by mid-2017.
