vision and image recognition, we could train the system to locate and identify the products on the shelves, visualizing it in AR, quantify these products and send the information to the server in such a way that the server-side could read this information correctly and could present it in a report taking into account all of the client specifications.
Цe used Unity and SDK Vuforia to achieve the most flexible solution possible, i.e., one that can work on both AR-powered glasses as well as on mobile devices. This played a significant role in choosing the tech stack because one of the main requirements was that the solution must support both visualizations mentioned above.
Without such a solution, the client would run the risk of the system incorrectly identifying the items on the images and would not be able to visualize the reports in AR. Skywell Software played a critical part in the development of the product. Without our involvement, Customertimes would not have received a ready-made solution for the retail industry within the set timeframe.
Our results were beneficial for both the client and retailers:
– For the client, we provided the solution that complements the client’s product which has become a holistic solution that can successfully perform all the necessary functions and can be sold to direct consumers, i.e., retailers.
– For retailers, we created a useful tool that allows them to reduce labor costs. Our solution also took human error out of the equation and sales increased by 2-5% due to timely monitoring.
