Smart Retail

Why Smart Retail?

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Vision, and Internet of Things (IoT) are changing the landscape of retail. These technologies enable a more personalized shopping experience that enhances customer satisfaction. 

Maximize In-Store Engagement

Smart digital signage presents relevant advertisements based on age, gender, and previous purchasing and browsing history. Then it easily provides the location of the desired product.

Optimize Operations and Resources

Leverage behavior-based analytics for resource optimization and cost control. Low performance campaigns can be quickly adjusted to enhance effectiveness.

Perfect Planogram Strategy

Get real-time insights based on customer behavior analytics that show how various strategies work and then optimize to get the best layout for each product section.

Smart Solutions for Public Health

Even as vaccines begin to roll out, the majority of the world and businesses are still maintaining mask mandates and social distancing requirements to help prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. AAEON hardware platforms are using AI solutions to detect face masks and measure social distancing. However, it doesn’t perform facial recognition or tracking to protect personal privacy. The system simply notifies staff using a light to make people aware of possible mask and social distancing violations, keeping the “offender” anonymous.
