Robotics Business Review
Simbe Robotics today announced adding RFID scanning and machine learning capabilities to its retail inventory-scanning robot, Tally. With the new technologies, Tally can now capture data from more than 700 RFID tags per second with higher than 99% accuracy, the company said.
Tally, which debuted in late 2015, already includes computer vision capabilities for scanning store shelves to determine out-of-stock or misplaced items for retailers such as grocery stores and pharmacies. With RFID scanning, the robot can now determine inventory levels for products that utilize RFID or that don’t sit on a standard grocery store shelf.
