Fashion Awareness Customer Profiling (FACPROF) – Inovretail

.cVIGICTprojects  , , , , , , , ,

2018–2019 The project Fashion Awareness Customer Profiling (FACPROF) aims to create the necessary conditions for better management of stocks in the retail fashion products based on a characterization of visitors and their consumption, thus meeting the real needs of consumers. The contribution of the CCG The Centre for Computer Graphics (CCG) participates in the project through its Domain of Applied Research – CVIG (Computer Vision Interaction & Graphics) with the research and development of the module of characterization of visitors, which will make intensive use of computer vision techniques. The goal is to extract information in 2 main levels: Type of visitor according to gender and age range and User’s garment size and color distribution. Benefits The collected information allows the visitor “to be categorized”, thus helping to predict their purchasing profile and therefore lead to an optimization of stock management. This optimization of stock management translates into greater availability of the parts and sizes intended by the consumers and on a better adjustment of the stock to the real needs. Due to turnover in clothing and footwear retail, a small increase in sales, margins or a decrease in inventory cost can translate into significant increases in retailers’ results. Financing: POCI-01-0247-FEDER-023968, Competitiveness and Internationalization Operational Program (COMPETE 2020) Total eligible cost: 374149,21 Euros EU support (ERDF): 164834,63 Euros Client: InovRetail, S.A

MaxCut4Fish – Research and development of an intelligent system for automatic and optimized cutting of frozen fish

.cVIGICTprojects  , , , , ,

2016 – 2018 The aim of the MaxCut4Fish project is to investigate and develop an intelligent and modular system of automatic cut of frozen fish that, by exploring and combining the potential of computer vision and sensorial automation, will allow to define optimal cuts for each fish according to its morphological, volumetric and weight, thus enabling, among other aspects: maximizing the use of fish; minimization of productive waste; increasing the quality and standardization of final posts.   The MaxCut4Fish is an intelligent modular cutting system, allowing one of the modules to cut the posts according to the desired weight, while another module cuts according to the intended measurements, without having to stop the equipment completely for maintenance, since these are alternated/programmed. By incorporating this state-of-the-art technology in terms of computer vision, sensory automation, and control, with minimal human intervention, it will be possible for the organizations involved: gain market share; diversify the client portfolio; increase productivity; strengthen the R & D strategy; deepen the technical and scientific know-how; expand the network of collaborations.   The CCG is responsible for the development of the computer vision and three-dimensional modeling of MaxCut4Fish. The activities of this project focus on the investigation and development of the algorithms that support 4 subsystems that will later incorporate a prototype that will be tested in an industrial environment.
