Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 07, 2016

Brickstream's sensors have been considered the market leader in retail store people counting applications, the company claims over 175,000 units deployed in 60+ countries. Less than 2 years after Brickstream acquired retail analytics company Nomi to create an end-to-end retail analytics solution, Brickstream has spun Nomi back off and sold the remaining sensor business to Point Grey.

We spoke with executives from the company that acquired the people-counting sensors, Point Grey, about this and how the company is now positioning itself in the retail analytics market.
