Self-checkout Systems In Stores

Customers place their goods in front of the camera and immediately proceed with the payment process.
Cashierless stores harness image recognition systems to process data gathered from CCTV or cameras built into a shopping cart to recognize the purchases and then charge the customer. The payment tends to be automatically distributed and handled via a mobile app, self-service kiosk, or even taking a biometric scan of the individual at the store entrance.

Planogram Image Recognition

Image recognition for retail when it comes to planograms works by ensuring that the arrangement of goods on the shelf matches that of the predisposed plan. Planogram image recognition models work by accurately scanning a stall, detecting the products present, and classifying them by a manufacturer, brand etc. This is then compared to a reference planogram to flag up any mismatches that need amending.

Product Tagging

Traditionally, retailers would spend hours manually applying multiple product tags to photos in their product catalogues. Automate this process by producing accurate attribute tagging results, including multiple tags to one image, helping to save staff’s time and create a straightforward and reliable item navigation for your online customers.

This is an example from ASOS, an online British fashion and cosmetics retailer, depicting an array of categories determined by attribute tagging to help users filter the items they are looking for.

Similar Product Recommendations

Accurately analyze the product attribute tags in images and then return items with the same or similar attributes to the retailer’s inventory courtesy of image recognition for retail, specifically image similarity search.

ASOS utilizes image recognition for retail by providing an extensive list of similar product recommendations, as shown with the example of long sleeve t-shirts.

Visual Search

Search for similar products using a reference image from the camera roll or downloaded from the internet.
The application, powered by retail image recognition, is able to apply attribute tags to the image supplied by the user and then returns results of items in stock that have the same or similar attribute tags.

The integration of the visual search feature also enables eCommerce businesses to implement this functionality into their software applications, maximizing the search potential of visual data.

Shelf Image Recognition 

In order to prevent retailers from losing money from products that have not been replenished, shelf image recognition software notifies the staff when an SKU is missing and needs to be restocked.
