SMART Dataset

"Shelf Management AssoRTment (SMART) Dataset " is a retail dataset composed by images of shelves in acquired in a real supermarket. These images are divided into three categories. In particular, it includes:​

  • 4748 Shelves Out of Stock images;
  • 4748 Normal images;
  • 4748 Promotion images.


To obtain the ground truth of the collected pictures, the true content has been manually estimated by human annotators, thus providing a more precise and less noisy dataset. All pictures are annotated with respect to their visual, textual and overall content. The following figure shows an example of dataset images that includes the three images described above.
