You approach one of touch screens to make an order, choose whatever you need and pay for it. A big arm attached to the ceiling with a magnetic ball starts moving, collect goods that have been purchased, in a large bag attached to it. Goods are ranged in cells appearing as a horizontal hole in a great deal of columns spread throughout the ocean of the hypermarket. Pillars are different: those in the far end are very large and wide, their cells containing big goods. Why are big pillars located at the back? This is because the buyer will not carry big goods away. They will go to retral transportation department for delivery to the destination. If the buyer orders small goods he can carry, then the crane brings them into the shopping cart next to the order touch screen.
Which goods will be put in this or that cell at a moment, does not only depend on the cell width and the column size. The program uses purchase statistics and crane movement power consumption indicators to determine the optimal location of the goods.
All products are known to be very different, and to simplify their storage and manipulator’s taking out of the cells, they are specially packaged. In the packaging department, each product is being blown by a layer of polyethylene bubbles attached to each other by means of static electricity and wrapped in cling film on both sides. Before getting into the manipulator bag, temporary package is being pierced, the film reduced and absorbed together with bubbles.
