Use case in production
Finding the fitting shoe size with end-to-end image processing
Andres Prada Gonzalez
Computer Vision Engineer, Footprint Technologies GmbH
Andrés is a Computer Vision Engineer with 3+ years of experience in the Berlin startup scene. He is currently working at Footprint Technologies where he has developed an image-based solution to precisely measure feet: from a prototype to a market-ready product.
At Footprint, we are developing an online shoe size recommendation system. Finding the perfect match between a foot and the correct shoe size requires two things: The exact dimensions of the inner shoe and a method to measure the feet accurately. Did you know that in the EU sizing system, two consecutive sizes only differ 6.6 mm in length, whereas in the UK, 8.46mm? In this talk, Andres will describe how the process from ideation to product was possible using Computer Vision.
