A New Retail System Based on RFID and 3D Dense Face Alignment

Sheng Cao, Ruiwen Hu


Here we show a New Retail System based on Radio Frequency Identification(RFID) and 3D Dense Face Alignment(3DDFA). We found that by combining RFID and 3DDFA, goods can be located and recognized by RFID and customers can also be located through 3DDFA. For binding the goods’ positions with customers’ positions together, we proposed a Fuzzy Matching Algorithm. It reaches an accuracy of 0.83 without interface. Through the algorithm, the New Retail System can detect the position of goods and customers in real time even with interference like goods stacking and customers wearing masks. Additionally, customers’ preference for goods is also obtained through the algorithm. We anticipate our essay to be a starting point to apply RFID and 3DDFA to New Retail. For instance, we track the location of customers and goods in real time to facilitate monitoring and straightforward settlement.
