Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SHARE OF SHELF DATA CAPTURE AND ANALYSIS
Abstract:
A camera system and method captures and stitches images to display share-of-shelf information. The camera system superimposes a guide with the first image so that the camera is movable to align the first image with the guide. The system adds an edge demarcation to the captured first image displays the edge demarcation along with a second adjacent image of the shelf, so that the edge demarcation and the guide are usable to align and overlap common portions of the second image with the first modified image. The system captures the second image upon alignment of the second image with the guide and with the edge demarcation of the first modified image, to create a second modified image, the first modified image and the second modified image forming an aggregated image.
