  • Patent number: 11301873
    Abstract: There is disclosed an information processing system for effectively using information indicating the state of a store visitor at the time of a visit. The system includes a recognizer that recognizes a store visitor and a transporter at the time of a visit by analyzing video information captured by an outside-the-store camera provided outside a store. The system also includes a determiner that determines a moving range of each store visitor recognized by the recognizer. Furthermore, the system includes a deriving unit that derives a trading area of the store based on a determination result of the determiner.

  • Publication number: 20190385176
    Abstract: An effective service is decided for a store visitor. There is provided an information processing apparatus including a store visitor information generator and a service decider. The store visitor information generator generates store visitor information of a store visitor who visits a store by analyzing a video acquired from at least one image capturer that captures an outside of the store. The service decider decides, based on the store visitor information generated by the store visitor information generator, a service to be provided to the store visitor.

  • Publication number: 20190347914
    Abstract: There is disclosed an information processing apparatus for effectively using information indicating the state of a store visitor at the time of a visit. This information processing apparatus includes a first analyzer that analyzes first video information captured by an outside-the-store camera for capturing an outside of a store to recognize a store visitor at the time of a visit, a second analyzer that analyzes second video information captured by the outside-the-store camera to recognize a situation outside the store after the store visitor visits the store, and a comparator that compares an analysis result of the first analyzer with an analysis result of the second analyzer.

  • Patent number: 8999108
    Abstract: In the separation of a cover tape 15e from a carrier tape 15 performed by a cover tape separating mechanism 50, a cover tape 15e, which is separated from a base tape 15a by a separating blade edge 51f, comes into contact with a concave conical surface 52c, so that one side portion of a cover tape 15e is bent toward the other side portion; and the bent cover tape 15e is pressed against a guide surface 32s from below while the carrier tape 15 is guided to a pick-up position. Accordingly, the cover tape 15e is folded on the base tape 15a in a flat shape.
