Bosch Launches In-Store Analytics Solution for Retailers

Bosch Security Systems introduces In-Store Analytics, a solution to provide retailers with valuable insights on store traffic for improving operations, customer engagement and sales.

As part of the solution, Bosch IP panoramic cameras are installed to provide high visibility of the retail floor. The cameras use on-board Intelligent Video Analytics to create position data of shoppers’ movements. This data is then sent direct to the Cloud where it is further processed without video streams ever leaving the retailer’s premise, thus maintaining shopper’s privacy. Unlike many systems that need on-site PCs to pre-process the video streams, limiting their performance to a few cameras per site, Bosch’s solution easily scales to cover even the largest retail stores with a high camera count and large multi-store chains.
