Brain Corp, an autonomous tech developer, has launched a new inventory-scanning robot to help retail workers monitor and track in-store stock. 

The robot was unveiled alongside the BrainOS InventoryAI Suite, an AI-enabled inventory analytics system that stores and processes the data collected by Brain Corp’s robots.

Combined, the tools were designed to improve efficiencies in the retail industry and automate the typically labor-intensive, manual stock-taking processes.

The robot, Dane AIR, was created in collaboration with Dane Technologies and was designed for fully autonomous operation, collecting inventory data across stores and allowing workers to address other essential tasks. 

Dane AIR comes equipped with an array of sensors for navigation around the store, as well as a Shelf Vision system to allow for precise inventory capture. 

"Dane AIR is poised to deliver outstanding ROI to retailers worldwide, addressing both outdated data collection processes and the pressing challenges stemming from labor shortages in the industry," said Dan Johnson, Dane Technologies’ CEO. "We know that effective inventory management drives profitability, 

"The Dane AIR’s capacity to cost-effectively automate inventory data collection and provide precise, actionable insights on demand, delivers a significant margin optimization opportunity for the industry."

BrainOS InventoryAI Suite is designed as a companion tool to Dane AIR, using AI to identify and rectify inventory issues such as out-of-stock items and price tag errors. 

“Our mission is straightforward: we help retailers put the right product on the right shelf at the right price,” said David Pinn, Brain Corp’s CEO. “This simple value proposition drives operational improvements, cost reductions, sales uplift, and an elevated customer experience. It equips retailers with a competitive edge in today’s dynamic retail environment."
