Walmart could begin deploying drones at its distribution centers within the next six to nine months, the company revealed.
The drones will be used to keep track of inventory, using proprietary software and onboard cameras that can snap 30 pictures per second.
Shekar Natarajan, the retailer’s logistics strategy VP, told ABC News the drones can reduce the time it takes to check inventory and flag misplaced items from one month, when performed manually, to about a day or less.
