Title: COMMODITY MONITORING DEVICE, COMMODITY MONITORING SYSTEM, AND COMMODITY MONITORING METHOD
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to enable a user, when there is a delay in commodity management work for eliminating a commodity shortage state, to easily ascertain the state of the delay. The commodity monitoring device is equipped with: an image acquisition section (51) for sequentially acquiring sales area images with the passage of time; a shortage state detection section (52) for detecting, upon the acquisition of each sales area image from the image acquisition section, a shortage state of a commodity displayed in the sales area on the basis of the sales area image; a duration acquisition section (53) for acquiring, when a commodity shortage state is detected by the shortage state detection section, the duration of the shortage state; and a screen generation section (54) for generating a state display image, the display form of which changes in response to the length of the duration, on the basis of an output result of the duration acquisition section, and for generating a monitoring image which includes the sales area on which the state display image is superimposed.
