Other technology that can help build richer analytics.
Smart Cameras. Adding Smart Cameras to screens can help collect data on who your content is attracting. Many of these cameras can detect age-range, gender and consumer reaction to your content by tracking facial expression.
RFID and Sensors. Using RFID and sensor technology can determine how consumers are interacting with your products. It lets you see what physical products people are looking at and where they dwell the longest. Comparing this data to your sales data will provide an understanding of which products are actually converting.
