Sam’s Club to Deploy Robots at All 600 Stores

Sam’s Club will roll out an additional 372 autonomous floor scrubbers this fall, a move that will put robots in every one of its nearly 600 U.S.stores. The retailer also is expanding an analytics pilot that uses the robots to examine shelves and help improve the in-store shopping experience.

The robots, which are manufactured by Tennant Company and powered by Brain Corp.’s BrainOS solution, will both keep floors clean and analyze shelves. The data will be used to verify pricing accuracy, confirm planogram compliance and ensure product availability to make it easier for shoppers to find the products they’re looking for.

Walmart has been working with Brain Corp since 2018, when it started deploying floor-scrubbing robots at its flagship stores. The rollout coincided with the launch of new associate-empowering tools that gave workers access to the entire stock of Walmart.com, and provided shoppers with the option of taking an item home with them or having it shipped.
