Title (EN) COOPERATIVE VENDING MACHINE DATA REPORTING
(FR) RAPPORT DE DONNEES DE DISTRIBUTEUR AUTOMATIQUE COLLECTIF
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A vending machine is equipped with a short range communication circuit for uploading vending machine data to passing mobile terminals. The mobile terminals subsequently upload the data to a remote location through a wireless communication process, such as through a cellular phone call. Compensation may be provided to the user of the mobile terminal and aggregation between mobile terminals and/or vending machines is contemplated.
(FR)L'invention concerne un distributeur automatique équipé d'un circuit de communication à faible portée destiné à télécharger des données de distributeur automatique vers des terminaux mobiles de passage. Ces terminaux mobiles téléchargent ensuite les données dans un emplacement distant à travers un procédé de communication sans fil, notamment à travers un appel téléphonique cellulaire. Une compensation peut être fournie à l'utilisateur du terminal mobile et une agrégation envisagée entre les terminaux mobiles et/ou les distributeurs automatiques.
