  • Publication number: 20210117949
    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure include technologies for detecting irregular scans, specifically when a retail system fails to collect the genuine information of a product. The disclosed retail system retrieves images covering a specific region, e.g., the designated scanning area. Further the disclosed retail system uses neural networks to detect the product from such images and track a moving path of the product over the specific region. Irregular scans may be detected when the tracked product in the images does not match what is collected by the scanner of the retail system.
