If you’re wondering whether robotics are right for you, Market Guide for Smart Robots in Retail can serve as your step-by-step playbook. Getting started in automation might be simpler than expected, according to Gartner analysts, who recommend an adoption strategy similar to Peapod’s AutoStore pilot program.
"Smart robots can be added incrementally and deliver significant value, without large-scale deployment or disruption. A single robot can deliver a significant return on investment; therefore, investments can be incremental over several years. For example, a smart robot is also a more cost-effective option, at least for the time being, for inventory audit when compared to other Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as smart shelves that often require significant hardware investment upfront. As the cost of robotic systems diminishes, following investment and development, the barrier to adoption will also diminish. Over the next year or so, we expect pilots and implementations of smart robots in physical stores and warehouse environments to persist. As a result, they will continue to garner significant attention and interest from both retailers and consumers alike."
