The project ShopView leverages computer-vision technology for automatic planogram compliance checking. Compliance checking is then performed by comparing the detected product placement with the pre-specified planogram. However, this approach requires planograms which are often unavailable for some retailers (a planogram is a tool that retailers use to assist in the merchandising.) Furthermore, product placement is important in retail to maximize sales and minimize wasted space.
The aim of this project is to accurately capture the true layout of shelf conditions by ShopView, to interpret and draw a visual diagram for a possible planogram.
