(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT LE CHOIX ET L'ACHAT DES LUNETTES ET DES VERRES DE CONTACT TEINTES
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method for the automation of every step of the commercial activity of an optical shop (virtual optical shop) is provided, comprising an imaging apparatus, a computer unit (operating program, image memories, data memories, A/D and D/A converters), a display apparatus, a communication apparatus and an assembling machine. The image of the face of the customer is picked up by the imaging apparatus. According to the customer's cosmetic preferences and the features of the image of his face, the operating program presents a showcase with suggestions of best fit eyewear products (spectacles frames and lenses, and color contact lenses). From the suggested showcase, the customer is able to try on and compare eyewear products on the image of his face. Once an eyewear product is chosen, the purchase order may be confirmed, and the computer unit, connected to an assembling machine through a communication program and apparatus, provides immediate assembling and delivery of the chosen eyewear product(s). The virtual optical shop, may be reached through the Internet by the customer, allowing him to go through the whole process from his home personal computer.

Système et procédé permettant d'automatiser l'ensemble des étapes de l'activité commerciale d'un commerce du type opticien (opticien virtuel), comportant un appareil d'imagerie, une unité informatique (programme d'exploitation, mémoires d'images, mémoires de données, convertisseurs A/N et N/A), un appareil afficheur, un appareil de transmission et une machine d'assemblage. Une image du visage du client est captée par l'appareil d'imagerie. Suivant les préférences cosmétiques du client et les caractéristiques de l'image de son visage, le programme d'exploitation présente une vitrine proposant les produits de lunetterie qui lui conviennent le mieux (montures et verres de lunettes et verres de contact teintés). A partir de la vitrine de propositions, le client peut essayer et comparer les produits de lunetterie en les plaçant sur l'image de son visage. Une fois qu'il a choisi un produit de lunetterie, le client peut confirmer sa commande, et l'unité informatique, reliée à une machine d'assemblage par l'intermédiaire d'un appareil et un programme de transmission, assure l'assemblage et la livraison immédiats du ou des produit(s) de lunetterie choisi(s). Le client peut visiter cet opticien virtuel par Internet, ce qui lui permet d'effectuer toutes les opérations chez lui par l'intermédiaire de son ordinateur personnel.
