Spacee’s Deming ROVR are small mobile robots that move across shelves to capture inventory data. The ROVR images items on the opposite side of the aisle and can count queued items using a 3D depth perception algorithm from images taken from multiple locations. The robots also offer live video feed capabilities, allowing retail store managers to see shelves and get real-time inventory snapshots remotely.
The Deming ROVR is an affordable and simplified retail inventory counting solution. Unlike other free-roaming mobile robots that can count inventory, the Deming ROVR is a mobile camera constrained to an enclosed track that runs the length of an aisle. While two ROVRs are required for 100% coverage of each aisle of a store, they’re faster to deploy and manage than mobile robot-based inventory management solutions.
The ROVR can provide real-time feedback as it can continually scan the aisle without disturbing shoppers. While it can take several days for staff to capture inventory manually and hours for a mobile robot, Deming can provide an accurate inventory account of an entire facility in under a minute, Space claims. Deming installation requires just one tool and about 30 minutes per aisle. - Mike Oitzman
