Title: (DA) Fremgangsmåde og anordning til detektering af væskebeholdere
Abstract:
(EN) In a reverse vending apparatus for detecting containers, e.g., bottles of glass or plastic, or packaging made of metal, wood, glass or plastic which for the recycling of materials or reuse of the container are inserted in the machine and conveyed past a detector station containing a video camera, a video image analyser (125, 130) is connected to the video camera in order to analyse the video image whilst the container (B) is conveyed in lying position and with its axis parallel to the direction of transport past the video camera (109). The position and movement of the container (B) in a viewing region of the video camera (109) is detemined on the basis of continuous detection of the position and movement of the container in the video image. Further, the direction of movement of the container (B) relative to the detector station is detemined, causing an alarm if the container is moved from a position downstream of the detector station to a position in the detection sector or zone, and causing no movement direction alarm if the container (B) is moved from a position upstream of the detector station and into the detection zone.
