We are happy to announce that we have just released the beta version of shopping shelf recognition mode in our API at recognize.im. It will help merchandisers and FMCG companies to instantly gather information about products on the in-store shelves.
The beta version allows to recognize up to about 40 – 50 products in one picture of the shelf. We are now working on improving this feature to recognize even more products in smaller pictures. We also want to reduce time of recognition which is now less than 30 seconds.
The current version of shelf recognition mode allows companies to implement our solution for small product shelves, for example drugs in pharmacies or prepaid cards in stores. Merchandisers can use it for every category of products of which standard product shelf contains up to 50 products. Of course companies can also analyze larger shelves simply by recognizing multiple pictures and matching results.
Companies can also use our new feature to create mobile applications for consumers. They can reward clients for taking pictures of specific shelves in store and collect valuable real-time data.
To use shelf recognition mode in our API you must become our official reseller, to do so please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
