Stockbot

StockBot is an autonomous platform that takes daily inventory in retail stores and warehouses without supervision. The robot combines RFID technology, vision cameras and autonomous navigation to speed up stocktaking and overcome conventional handheld readers. StockBot doesn't need any modification of the environment and only requires a first initial set-up. After that, it automatically adapts to any spatial change.

Overview

StockBot doesn't need any modification of the environment and only requires a first initial set-up. After that, it automatically adapts to any spatial change.

StockBot detects all items and their spatial location, reflecting them in a 3D map, and also provides visual information for further analysis. The platform provides access to applications such as out-of-stock situations and misplacements detection, planogram and price tag checking while enhancing data-driven decisions.
