Title (EN) PRODUCT PART PICTURE PICKER
(FR) SÉLECTEUR D'IMAGE D'UNE PIÈCE D'UN PRODUIT
Abstract:
(EN) A system is described which aids a customer in finding the correct part for a product. The customer will take a picture of the product (e.g., lawnmower) on a mobile device running an App which is forwarded to a parts identification system. The parts identification system will use analyze the picture and provide several close matches to the user's mobile device. The user will select the closest image which identifies a specific product. The model number, brand, etc. associated with the product, is provided to a parts database which provides a representation of the parts relating to the selected product. The parts identification system may categorize the parts for the customer to narrow down to the desired matching part. The system will then store the selected products and parts for this customer for quicker matches in the future. The system also searched e-Commerce sites for availability.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système qui aide un client à trouver la pièce correcte d'un produit. Le client prend une image du produit (p. ex., une tondeuse à gazon) sur un dispositif mobile exécutant une application qui est transmise à un système d'identification de pièces. Le système d'identification de pièces utilise l'analyse de l'image et fournit plusieurs correspondances proches au dispositif mobile de l'utilisateur. L'utilisateur sélectionne l'image la plus proche qui identifie un produit spécifique. Le numéro de modèle, la marque, etc. associés au produit sont transmis à une base de données de pièces qui fournit une représentation des pièces relatives au produit sélectionné. Le système d'identification de pièces peut classer les pièces pour aider le client à trouver la pièce correspondante souhaitée. Le système stocke ensuite les produits et les pièces sélectionnés pour ce client afin de permettre un appariement plus rapide par la suite. Le système recherche également la disponibilité sur des sites de commerce électronique.
