About Bossa Nova

Bossa Nova pioneered the automated data capture and analysis of on-shelf inventory since 2013. Our claim to fame is the deployment of robots in 600 Walmart supercenters to create a massive training data set of 134M labeled product images. The resulting Product ID engine is the industry’s best, and works as well on images from mobile devices as from robots and fixed cameras. We mine this data to provide insights to store associates to restock shelves, to product manufacturers to run promotions, and to third parties to fulfill online orders.
