Title: THEFT PREDICTION AND TRACKING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Systems and methods for detecting potential theft and identifying individuals having a history of committing theft are presented. In an embodiment, an electromagnetic emission associated with a personal electronic device associated with an individual is received. One or more signal properties of the electromagnetic emission are analyzed to determine an emission signature. Video data and video analytics are utilized to determine whether an individual has taken possession of an item. The video analytics are correlated with the emission signature in an attempt to identify the individual having possession of the item. The emission signature and video data are stored for later use during a checkout procedure. If an emission signature detected at a checkout station matches that of the individual having possession of the item, and the item is not processed through the checkout station, an alert is issued and the individual is flagged as a potential shoplifter.
