Scholarship idea - Automated Store Inventory Manager Answered
The objective of my project would be to use the Create platform as a mobile platform to help manage inventory in a store like Walmart. The concept would be based on RFID. A reader would be mounted on the robot and it will detect passive tags on the products stacked in the shelves. The mobile platform would autonomously wander around the store after hours, collect and collate data and generate a reorder report at the end of its run, which would in turn be transmitted via RF to a PC. Implementation would be carried out such that it could be ported to a real world scenario. Also, it would ensure that all the stacks have been visited during its run.
