Robots are becoming commonplace across the sales floors of more Walmart stores.

The discount giant expanded its initial test of its shelf-scanning robots to 50 stores across four states, including Arkansas and California. Similar to those used in its test phase, the technology is designed to free up workers’ time so they can help customers, according to Business Insider.

In addition to pinpointing out-of-stock items, misplaced merchandise, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels, the robots revealed new uses during their initial test phase.
