Robot Begins Work At Convenience Store; Hopes To Replace Humans By 2022

A robot has begun work at a Japanese convenience store.

The Telexistence (TX) MODEL-T is seen stacking shelves in a Familymart shop in the Toshima area of Tokyo.

Developers hope the units will replace human workers by 2022.

In the trial operation on 26 August, the pilot logged in using a VR terminal to remotely operate the Model-T from TX'S Tokyo office.

TX & Familymart explain: " We will continue to expand the items to be handled by the robot to other product categories such as rice balls, sandwiches and bento boxes" "and aim to deploy the Model-T in up to 20 stores franchised by TX by 2022."
