In the US, floor cleaning  machine producer Tennant  has won a contract with  major retailer Walmart to  supply its autonomous  floor cleaning machine  the T7AMR (Autonomous  Mobile Robot) equipped  with Brain Corp's self-driving  operating system  BrainOS reports European  Cleaning Journal. 

"We are proud to partner  with Walmart, the first  major global retailer to  introduce autonomous  cleaning robots to deliver  operational efficiency,  cleaning performance  and customer value on  a broad scale across a  retail platform," said Chris  Killingstad, Tennant  Company's President and  Chief Executive Officer.  

John Crecelius, Walmart Senior VP of Central Operations commented, "This cleaner is another  great example of  technology helping make  the Walmart job better.  Rather than riding on a floor cleaning machine for several hours, the associate is now working with robotics to complete their duties. The machine allows our associates more time to focus on completing other tasks within the role but most importantly it frees them up to serve our customers better."
