Title
(EN) RF CONTACT SIGNAL DETECTOR
(FR) DETECTEUR DE SIGNAUX A CONTACT RF
Abstract
(EN)
A contact-based system (10) for inexpensively monitoring the presence, location, and timing of various advertising and merchandising materials at a variety of retail facilities has been disclosed. This includes sign holders, display holders, stocking section identifiers, and the like that contain a plurality of contact point sensors (9, 12, 18) that match or mate with contacts positioned on the material to be monitored. Identifying contacts are placed on the material to be monitored at a factory such that when they are inserted into a pre-specified location at a facility, contact is made. The contact data (30) is then decoded data and relayed wirelessly to a device at the facility that in turn relays the data to a remote server to determine if the merchandising materials have been positioned in that facility and at a plurality of facilities at the right place and at the right time.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un système de contact permettant de surveiller, à bon marché, la présence, l'emplacement et le chronométrage de plusieurs matériaux de publicité et de promotion au niveau de plusieurs points de vente au détail. Ce système comprend des porte-affiches, des supports d'affichage, des identificateurs de section de stockage et similaires contenant une pluralité de détecteurs de points de contact qui correspondent ou s'adaptent avec des contacts disposés sur le matériau à surveiller. Des contacts d'identification sont disposés sur le matériau à surveiller au niveau d'une usine si bien que lorsqu'ils sont insérés dans un emplacement préalablement défini d'un équipement, le contact est effectué. Les données de contact sont ensuite décodées et transmises sans fil à un dispositif de l'équipement qui transmet à son tour les données à un serveur à distance afin de déterminer si les matériaux de promotion ont été positionnés dans cet équipement et dans plusieurs équipements au bon endroit et au bon moment.
