Bossa Nova Robotics is a startup robotics company that manufactures inventory control robots for use in retail stores. They are best known for an attempt to use these robots in Walmart stores, in Walmart’s effort to better compete with Amazon. Their Auto-S line of robots scanned store shelves by beaming light on them and snapping photos using 2D and 3D cameras, as well as utilizing lidar to navigate and detect if anything was stocked in a shelf. From this it attempted and failed to detect out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and other irregularities. Walmart’s decision to change course with Bossa Nova shows how companies need to evaluate how robots may or may not work well in less-structured settings.
