A team of graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University collaborated with Intel to use embedded systems in a pioneering new way: to create a robot that can march up and down the aisles of a store scanning every item on the shelves along the way. The robot doesn't just "see" the shelves--it maps them, and precisely. Think of it as Google maps with Street View, only for a store. And the data the robot generates isn't just for helping you find your way to an item. A tireless robot would allow a store to follow its stocks down to the item. Imagine the savings from instantaneously ordering just the right amount of product, or the sales generated by having a fast-moving item always in stock.
