Badger Technologies Launched Multipurpose Robot

Badger Technologies, a product division of Jabil and expert in retail automation, has launched a pilot program with Busy Beaver Building Centers, Inc., an operator of 24 full-line home improvement centres in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. Multipurpose autonomous robots will monitor on-shelf product availability and verify prices for more than 30,000 stock keeping units (SKUs), freeing sales associates to spend more time with customers. Additionally, the autonomous robots will allow for restocking to be done within two hours as opposed to the traditional 80 hours.
