With so many restrictions in place to minimize human interactions, it is possible that Accel Robotics Smart Retail Assistant can bridge customer service gap to provide insights to the retailers about their consumers. This robot features soft and friendly form, the balance between affability and technical sophistication has resulted in a cute and friendly-looking robot.
