Walmart is going to begin using robot custodians in January. The robots look like a cross between a miniature Zamboni and a motorized wheelchair. The robots are already scrubbing floors in airports in Seattle, San Diego, Boston and Miami.
The BrainOS will clean during store hours with sensors to avoid bumping into customers. A staff member will work with the robot to map out the cleaning area. Many Walmart locations already use robots to scan items, and move product.
