Consumers simply tap a button to request the closest robomart. Once it arrives, they head outside, unlock the doors, and pick the products they want. When they are done, they just close the doors and send it on its way. Robomart tracks what customers have taken using patent pending "grab and go" checkout-free technology and will charge them and send a receipt accordingly.
Robomarts are engineered with cutting-edge technology, including driverless tech for autonomy and teleoperations, an RFID and computer vision based checkout-free system, and purpose-built refrigeration and temperature control.
During our initial public pilots, robomarts will be remotely driven via a manned teleoperations system. This ensures a highly safe approach to deployment, without relying on a hybrid system between autonomous mode and teleoperations. We are taking a safety-first approach before fully automating our fleet.
