Automated shops: Image recognition knows when shelves are empty
Supermarket shelves can use image recognition cameras to scan the amount of stock on the shelves and alert staff when new products need to be delivered to stores. The technology, which already exists, can help to lead to a more automated shop and processes for those who provide the products.
Image recognition Company Trax, which says it has analysed more than 36 million images in real-time, has created a ‘smart-cooler’ system which can analyse what is on the shelves of a drink cabinet.
Intage Inc. and Trax announce an alliance to drive the digital transformation of Japan’s retail industry, starting with the rollout of a holistic in-store execution solution to help CPG manufacturers improve their return on investment on trade and merchandising activations in store.
