SAN DIEGO – Brain Corp, a San Diego-based AI company creating transformative core technology for the robotics industry, announced that it will be expanding its relationship with Walmart.

Brain Corp will provide its BrainOS technology to an additional 1,500 robotic floor cleaners nationwide by the end of the year. This deal will increase the prior announcement of 360 robotic floor cleaners powered by BrainOS operating in Walmart stores to a fleet totaling 1,860 machines.

Brain Corp’s commercial operating system, BrainOS, supports Walmart’s Auto-C (autonomous cleaning) initiative through the enablement of robotic floor cleaners. Robots powered by BrainOS operate collaboratively alongside Walmart associates by utilizing a simple and intuitive “teach and repeat” approach which allows associates to easily deploy the machine and adjust cleaning routes as the environment changes.

“We are excited to expand upon our floor cleaning fleet as we continue to integrate the power of robotics and AI into our daily operations, freeing up associates to serve our customers better” pointed out John Crecelius, Walmart’s Senior VP of Central Operations.
