A Method and System for Accessing an Object Database to Locate Objects and Parts of the Object

Disclosed is a method and system for using an object database and image recognition to identify the part an object belongs to. Here, the object database is created by individual user based on the user's requirement such as, a home inventory database, office inventory database and the like. The database is populated with object parts or components by scanning the object using, for example, image or barcode scanning, Quick Response (QR) code and using the scanned code to locate the object parts on, for example, the Internet.

Figure 1

As illustrated in Figure 1, the user populated object database is used to store multiple objects and associated components, pieces, and parts.

Further, the object data that is stored in the object database can be used to perform an image search of a component or part of an object found by the user. Subsequently, the image search on the object database will display the objects matching the searched object or part of the object along with additional data, which can include, but is not limited to, a manufacturer of the object, details to order or purchase a replacement part, details regarding fixing the object and the like.

Figure 2 illustrates an exemplary scenario of a carton inventory.
