Title (EN) FLOOR MONITORING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE SURVEILLANCE DE PARQUET
Abstract:
(EN) The invention discloses a system including floor tiles for monitoring the movements of individuals across a floor surface. The system is comprised of a plurality of floor tiles electrically and mechanically interconnected. The floor tiles are monitored to determine where, when and how weight is applied to the floor tiles. The system may also comprise an identification system comprising individual transmitters and a receiver. The receiver is tied into the tile monitoring system to allow the identification of an individual on the floor surface.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système comprenant des carreaux couvre-plancher destiné à surveiller le mouvement d'individus évoluant sur une surface de plancher. Le système est constitué d'une pluralité de carreaux couvre-plancher assemblés électriquement ou mécaniquement. Les carreaux couvre-plancher sont surveillés en vue de déterminer où, quand et comment un poids est appliqué sur les carreaux couvre-plancher. Le système peut également comprendre un système d'identification équipé d'émetteurs individuels et d'un récepteur. Le récepteur est fixé à l'intérieur du système de surveillance afin de permettre l'identification d'un individu évoluant sur la surface de plancher.
