Fuji demonstrates its autonomous mobile robot for moving carts

December 23, 2022 10:48 am

Technologies have been developed to move goods automatically from storeroom to shelving area during after-hours operation with wheeled carts in retails stores.

Fuji Corporation, one of the global leader in the development, manufacture, and sales of electronic component mounters and machine tools has used it’s know how from years of experience in robotics and automation to develop a solution for automatically moving wheeled carts in retail stores. Fuji’s solution can handle multiple types of existing carts that are typically used in retail stores and requires no changes to existing store layout or infrastructure. To evaluate the practicality and capability of the robot, testing began in July 2022 at selected stores of Cainz, a top home improvement center chain in Japan.

In the retail industry, goods are delivered regularly to stores from distribution centers. Various technologies are currently being developed that promise to automate this distribution, such as self-driving trucks. However, once goods arrive inside the store, there is a lot of manual labour involved in getting the goods all the way to the shelves. Retailers would like their staff to focus on activities that really add to the customer experience of shopping.

This is where company’s solution comes in, by automating the work of moving carts to the shelves and by doing it after-hours, staff are free to improve customer experience. Once tags have been added to carts, the robot can recognise them automatically and move the goods wherever in the store they are needed. By operating in the dark after hours, productivity is improved to the maximum possible extent.

NRF 2023, Retail’s Big Show, New York, USA Part of this under-development solution will be on display at NRF 2023, Retail’s Big Show, one of the largest exhibitions in the world dedicated to retail solutions. The company will be demonstrating its ultra-thin model, with its class-leading height dimension.
