Evolution Robotics Retail Gains Reseller

Pasadena-based Evolution Robotics Retail has signed on reseller for the firm's object recognition technology for grocery stores, LaneHawk, the firm's reseller, StoreNext Retail Technologies, said this week. According to StoreNext, which supplies independent grocers and groery chains with IT and POS hardware, it will integrate Evolution Robotics Retail's product into its POS solutions. LaneHawk uses a computerized, object recognition system to automatically enter and detect items left in the bottom of checkout baskets during checkout--a major source of loss for grocery stores. Evolution Robotics Retail is the retail-focused spinout of Idealab's Evolution Robotics, which split as a wholly owned subsidiary from its parent back in 2006 to focus solely on its LaneHawk product.
