Walmart to test robots for store use

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) -

Walmart is planning to take a futuristic approach to ensure their shelves are replenished at all times.

The retail giant announced that it will test shelf-scanning robots in stores located in California, Pennsylvania and Arkansas.

The robots will essentially move through aisles, where it will search for items that are priced incorrectly or misplaced. The robots will then contact a human employee of the data that it receives from these shelves. 

Walmart hopes the program will improve store efficiency and help customers obtain items easier. Robots will be available in 50 of its stores nationwide by the end of January.
