Ama­zon Fu­ture Su­per­mar­kets may Op­er­ate with Just 3 Staff, Lots of Bots

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -

Ama­zon’s high-tech su­per­mar­kets of the fu­ture could be op­er­ated by just three hu­mans, ac­cord­ing to The New York Post. The ecom­merce gi­ant is re­port­edly con­sid­er­ing two-storey su­per­mar­kets that span be­tween 10,000 square feet and 40,000 square feet and rely heav­ily on a fleet of ro­bots, said sources. The su­per­mar­kets — cur­rently at the pro­to­type stage — ex­pand on the smaller Ama­zon Go gro­cery stores, which were un­veiled last De­cem­ber. Both the gro­cery stores and the su­per­mar­kets would con­tain no cashiers, no reg­is­ters, and no lines. In­stead, they would rely on an app on cus­tomer’s phones that would de­tect items picked off shelves for pur­chase.
