Walmart Embraces Store Automation Technology Online grocery sales are driving traffic to brick-and-mortar stores, which are becoming inundated with shoppers. To combat congestion in the aisles, retailers are turning to automated micro-fulfillment centers, which use artificial intelligence and robots to fulfill orders in record time.

Instead of walking through the aisles, the cloud-based system guides these robots as they make a beeline for each item. AI controls and manages everything from the ordering process to the delivery.
