  • Publication number: 20190073810
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to correct more accurate marketing information. A flow line display system of the present invention includes image-capturing unit, information operation device and display unit. The image-capturing unit captures an image. The information operation device detects an object from the image and identifies a flow line of the object, an orientation of the object, and a time related to the orientation. The display unit displays the orientation of the object and the time related to the orientation together with the flow line of the object.

  • Patent number: 9418428
    Abstract: The position management device includes: a calculation unit that gives identification on an object being monitored to the object being monitored cyclically imaged, and calculates positional information of the object from an image of the object; a storage unit that associates the identification and an imaging time with the positional information, and stores these items; and a comparison unit that compares, with respect to the object, an absolute value of a difference between the positional information as of a current time and the positional information as of each of the imaging times one and two cycle(s) prior to the current time, as stored in the storage unit, with a predetermined reference value, and outputs the positional information as of the current time if the absolute value for at least one of the imaging times is less than the reference value.
