Inventory Level Analysis using Artificial Intelligence
With the current trend in retail industry, everything is being automated. The effort is put in the same direction to do stock level analysis using a depth sensing device. In retail we observe that most of the times, things are always picked up from the front of a bin. On basis of that surmise, we can use deep learning to scan the space using a depth sensing device and come up with a very good approximation of its volumetric space. The module can be plugged into an AGV/Drone which will scan the bin area and update the backend with inventory details.
