Walmart, America’s big-box giant, will further its use of robots to keep labor costs down. Robots will be used for inventory, cleaning floors and unloading trucks. Walmart said no employees will be replaced by robots, but with more automation in stores, it will be able to streamline the number of employees needed for certain tasks.
