Scanning shelves. Boosting profitablilty.

Out-of-stocks. Empty shelves. Price discrepancies. Planogram inconsistencies. They all happen—and they all cost you. The fully autonomous Badger® robot will scan shelves and automatically address these operational inefficiencies.

High resolution and 3D depth cameras

The cameras on board allow the Badger® robot to see not only in high-resolution detail, but also in 3D. This powerful optics package allows for smooth in-store navigation and high fidelity data acquisition.

Navigation sensors

The Badger® robot was designed with retail in mind. In addition to high-resolution cameras and rotating lidar, the Badger® robot comes equipped with a suite of sensors that keep it clear of shoppers or other objects.

Firmware in robotics operating systems (ROS)

While the Badger® robot is a headline grabbing piece of hardware, much of the real excitement is hidden inside. With fully upgradeable firmware, new solutions and new possibilities are just a software update away.

Modular application software architecture

We know a new system is only as good as its ability to connect with your existing stack. That’s why the Badger® robot's software was designed from the ground up with custom system integration in mind.

Rotating lidar

Advanced lidar (think radar using laser technology) is yet one more way the Badger® robot sees its surroundings. As it passes through your store, the Badger® robot is able to smoothly navigate and constantly map an ever changing environment.

Autonomous base with rechargeable battery

While the Badger® robot is programmed to return to its charging station after a cycle, there is plenty of power on board for a full day of uninterrupted work. Equipped with a 12 hour rechargeable battery, the Badger® robot can keep up with the high pace of retail environments.

Common Questions

How does the robot navigate around my customers?

The Badger® robot is very aware of its surroundings. If a shopper comes close or crosses it’s path, our robot will pause and wait or change directions and continue on with its work.

Our store layout changes often. Is this a problem?

No problem at all, change is just part of retail. The Badger® robot re-maps the store every time it makes rounds, and is smart enough to detect and adapt to new displays or configurations.

What is the typical ROI on a per store basis?

Great question, but the answer depends on many factors. The easiest and most accurate way to determine return is by using our ROI calculator.

How does the robot navigate around my customers?

The Badger® robot is very aware of its surroundings. If a shopper comes close or crosses it’s path, our robot will pause and wait or change directions and continue on with its work.

How often does the robot scan for missing or misplaced product?

Frequency varies based on your objectives and which solutions you deploy, but the most common approach is to have the Badger® robot scan your store as often as every hour or as little as four times a day.

How often is maintenance required?

One of the great things about the Badger Execution Suite is that absolutely everything is covered. Our team maintains the Badger® robot on a regular schedule and can respond quickly if any unexpected issues arise.

How is shelf data collected and transmitted from the robot?

The Badger® robot uses 5G and Edge technology to transmit store insights wirelessly to your dashboard. No need to upload, download, or take the robot offline to collect data.

How do shoppers typically react to the robot?

Initially, the overwhelming reaction is curiosity. Adults usually do a double-take and kids always wave. But because the Badger® robot has been designed to be unobtrusive, customers acclimate very quickly.

Is this a purchase or lease arrangement?

The Badger Execution Suite is based on a per-store lease agreement and covers everything you’ll need to increase store profitability. And because the Badger® robot is driven by software, new solutions are an update away.
