Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University see the future of retail — with AndyVision, technology that helps to improve the shopping experience for both customers and retail staff.

AndyVision is a robotic inventory system that takes the form of an autonomous robot that can patrol and scan the aisles and shelves of a retail store.
The robot generates a detailed aisle/shelf-level interactive store map that can be displayed on an in-store digital sign for customers to browse the virtual world of the store using gestures or a touchscreen interface.

The project is part of Priya Narasimhan’s work as head of the Intel Science and Technology Center for Embedded Computing at CMU. Check out the demo video below.
