A loss-prevention visual recognition system that identifies items without having to read the UPC code.
A solution that detects and recognizes bottom-of-the-basket items making sure they are added to the sale. A smart camera is flush-mounted in the checkout lane at foot level, continuously watching for items on the bottom of shopping carts. Using Visual Pattern Recognition (ViPR™) software, the camera is able to detect and recognize items that pass by the camera and then send the UPC information directly to the POS. At tender time, the cashier verifies the items that were found under the basket, scans those items and then finalizes the transaction.
