Do you have any idea about Alphabot Technology?
It is the way Walmart is revolutionizing grocery stores.
Alphabots are robotic development platform which runs on Raspberry Pi, or Arduino. It has all the things to keep it moving. Alphabots got presented by Walmart, which is based on a start-up by Alert innovation.
The main functionality of Alphabot is that it will pick products for the customer by the consumer’s order to review, will pack it and then send it as per consumer demand whether they want it in the parking lot or delivery at home and also alphabots holds 20000 grocery items which include stable shelf products, fresh or frozen refrigerated products.
Can Alphabot Technology Improve Society’s Welfare
If this technology works, it will bring prosperity and will solve a lot of problems in the community. As of today, Walmart got 40000 employees that pick the grocery products for the consumer who ordered it online.
Having so many employees for the sole purpose of picking products for the consumer, which they can choose it for themselves, is a money loss. It’s pointless to have so many employees and then try to step into the online industry. Alphabot technology is the answer that solves the issue.
It’s dependable; it’s well-founded and allows the grocery shop owners to step into quality control Automaization, and the delivery process will provide a lot of profit to the business.
A study stated that the online sale would reach 20 % in the coming five years, but no one is sure whether it will increase in the given time, but one thing is for sure that is the growing online trend is coming up. The critics have this point that the technology won’t allow, and the humans won’t adopt this technology.
However, Alphabots prove them wrong, and now people prefer to buy online, those things which they could only purchase in person.
Now the problem stands that if Alphabot technology provides the consumer with whatever they need and that the Neilson adoption rates are proved, then 20% of the population won’t visit the shops.
Well, this problem is already prevailing with time. Every shop out there is almost empty due to the increase in online purchases, and no one cares about the economic situation of those owing to the physical grocery shops.
As most of the stores are not selling much product to produce the required revenue, with time, they are going to get closed, and that will cause the consumer to move further. Still, if the classes of the product follow the hierarchy, then the consumer will use both online and store methods to purchase the products.
Alphabot technology is still unknown to a lot of people as it is not appropriately introduced to the world as it is not fully prepared, but Walmart is pitching it.
We can see the implementations explain a lot about the changes in technology with time. Right now, these changes are not favorable for the owners of grocery, and this will impact society.
