The idea of this ambitious robotics project came out of observing a customer’s user experience while buying products at a large retail centre, who would normally need a good deal of patience and time to make purchases, using a shopping trolley and who would be left alone to decide how to spend his or her money in the best way, to then have to join a long check out queue. 
We decided to create a robot salesman to facilitate all the activities related to the sale of a product.
The robot salesman, understanding the human language, will be able to dialogue with the customers, give information, advice, allow the activity of inventorying the products and carry out night surveillance.
