Walmart’s Sam’s Club banner expects to test new computer vision technology this spring in Sam’s Club Now, its Dallas-based innovation lab store.
Sam’s Club reports it has developed the retail tech and filed a patent, expecting club members will be able to test this technology using the Sam’s Club Now mobile app soon.
The test lab store experiments with a mobile-first shopping experience powered by the Sam’s Club Now app. The retailer has been testing technology in Sam’s Club Now since it openined last October, such as augmented reality, wayfinding and navigation.
Its newest tech is designed to make its Scan & Go service faster and easier. Scan & Go is the foundation of the Sam’s Club Now app, which all members have to use to shop in the concept store.
