Mobile app idea #49: Intelligent Supermarket
Updated: Feb 9, 2021
The idea is to develop a web portal and a mobile application in iOS and Android to generate a daily heatmap of the supermarket shelves.
Using AI and Machine Learning with an object-detection algorithm we could generate a heatmap based-on how full or empty the shelves are. It would also give the supermarket manager a heat map of popular items or group of items by determining the rate of change in a certain area of the store.
You could install hyper-zoom sky-cam or equip a person or store employee with a 360 camera like Google camera and walk down each aisle of the supermarket.
Using this type of augmented intelligence, supermarket stores could maximize shelf space to bring in added revenue, justify pivot strategy, and so much more.
