Title: DETERMINING IN-STORE LOCATION BASED ON IMAGES
Abstract:
An in-store location system determines the location of a shopper within a store based on images received from a shopper client device. The shopper client device can be attached to a shopping cart and may be connected to one or more cameras that capture images of products on shelves. The in-store location system can detect products in images received from the shopper client device using a machine-learned product detection model to detect the products in the received images. The in-store location system can then determine the location of the shopper within the store based on the received images. The in-store location system may compare the detected products to a store map or a planogram describing the store. The in-store location system also may apply a machine-learned location-determination model to the received images.
