1. A shelving display comprising:
an electronic display mounted on a forward edge of a shelf;
multiple product sensors mounted to the shelf, each sensor arranged to detect products on a respective width of the shelf; and
a controller in electronic communication with the electronic display and the product sensors, the controller configured to perform operations comprising:
obtaining product location data that indicates a location of a first product along the shelf and a location of a second product along the shelf, the product location data comprising a planogram that associates one or more first product sensors with the location of the first product and one or more second product sensors with the location of the second product;
controlling, based on input from the one or more first product sensors, the electronic display to present one or more images relevant to the first product within a first group of pixels spanning a first width of the electronic display that corresponds with the location of the first product along the shelf;
controlling, based on input from the one or more first product sensors, the electronic display to present one or more images relevant to the second product within a second group of pixels spanning a second width of the electronic display that corresponds with the location of the second product along the shelf; and
responsive to a change in input from at least one of the one or more first product sensors, altering the first group of pixels to span a different width of the electronic display.
