Abstract
(EN)
A client computer (102) with a scanner (118) capable of scanning objects (115) for a code (117). The client computer (102) scans the object (115) of interest and translates the code (117) into a URL (Uniform Ressource Locator) that specifies both a server computer (122, 160) and the location within the server of information that is relevant to the object (115). The client computer (102) transmits the URL to the server computer (122, 160), receives the information related to the object (115) from the server computer (122, 160), and communicates the information to the customer.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ordinateur client (102) avec un scanner (118) pouvant scanner des objets (115) pour détecter un code (117). L'ordinateur client (102) scanne l'objet (115) concerné et traduit le code (117) en un localisateur de ressources uniformes qui spécifie un ordinateur de serveur (122, 160) ainsi que l'emplacement, dans le serveur, des informations concernant l'objet (115). L'ordinateur client (102) transmet le localisateur de ressources uniformes à l'ordinateur de serveur (122, 160), reçoit les informations liées à l'objet (115) à partir de l'ordinateur de serveur (122, 160) et communique les informations au client.
