In Japan, robots were taught to put goods on shelves


In the Japanese chain store FamilyMart, robot assistants have been launched. They know how to arrange goods on shelves, as well as pick up those items that have fallen on the floor.

FamilyMart, a chain of 24-hour family stores, has launched a robot called Model-T, developed by Japanese company Telexistence. The two-meter-high robot travels on a wheeled platform and uses cameras, microphones and sensors. Each of his limbs has three fingers, so he can move cans, bottles or larger objects.

FamilyMart noted that they plan to benefit from the help of three more robots before the end of this year. They will launch dozens more devices in 20 stores by 2022.
