Title (EN) NESTED VISIBILITY FOR A CONTAINER HIERARCHY
(FR) VISIBILITE IMBRIQUEE POUR HIERARCHIE DE CONTENEURS
Abstract:
(EN) A nested container (185) establishes a relative hierarchy of associated containers as logistical units. A relative hierarchy comprises a lower-layer (214) containers and upper layer (212) relative to the nested container. To do so, the nested container sands interrogation signals to neighboring containers in order to retrieve identification information and layer information. Also, the nested container sends its own information identification information and layer information responsive to received interrogation signals. The nested container outputs the relative hierarchy to, for example, a site server (25) or agent using a hand0held device. The identification module comprises, for example, an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) device.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un conteneur imbriqué établit une hiérarchie relative de conteneurs associés sous forme d'unités logistiques. Cette hiérarchie relative comprend des conteneurs de couche inférieure et des conteneurs de couches supérieure par rapport audit conteneur imbriqué. Pour ce faire, le conteneur imbriqué envoie des signaux d'interrogation à des conteneurs voisins pour récupérer des informations d'identification et des informations de couche. Ledit conteneur imbriqué envoie également ses propres informations d'identification et informations de couche, en réponse à des signaux d'interrogation reçus. Le conteneur imbriqué émet en sortie la hiérarchie relative pour un serveur de site ou un agent par exemple, au moyen d'un dispositif portable. Le module d'identification comprend, par exemple, un dispositif d'identification par radiofréquence.
