Title
(EN) PRESENCE, PATTERN AND WEIGHT SENSOR SURFACE
(FR) SURFACE A CAPTEURS DE PRESENCE, POIDS ET MODELE
Abstract
(EN) The invention is a system (100) for detecting and reporting the presence and/or weight of inventory items (402). The system (100) includes a storage unit (200) having a surface (202) for storing inventory items (402), one or more sensors (204) positioned on the surface(202), and a reporting unit (210) for receiving and transmitting (212) the first signal. The sensors (204) may detect and send one or more signals to the reporting unit (210) indicative of the presence and/or weight of inventor items (402) on the surface (202). The reporting unit (210) then transmits this signal to a controller (112) which uses the presence and/or weight data to determine the presence of items on the surface (202), the weight of items (402) on the surface (202) and/or the pattern of items on the surface(202). By knowing presence, weight, and/or pattern of items, the controller (112) is better able to determine the identity and quantity of items in the storage unit (200).
(FR) L’invention concerne un système (100) qui détecte et indique la présence ou le poids d’articles stockés (402). Le système (100) comprend une unité de stockage (200) avec une surface (202) qui reçoit des articles stockés (402), un ou plusieurs capteurs (204) placés sur la surface (202) et une unité de communication (210) qui émet et reçoit (212) un premier signal. Les capteurs (204) peuvent détecter et envoyer un ou plusieurs signaux à l’unité de communication (210) indiquant la présence ou le poids d’articles stockés (402) sur la surface (202). L’unité de communication (210) transmet alors ce signal à un contrôleur (112) qui utilise les données reçues pour déterminer la présence d’articles sur la surface (202), leur poids (402) ou leur modèle. En fonction de la présence, du poids ou du modèle des articles, le contrôleur (112) peut déterminer l’identité et la quantité des articles dans l’unité de stockage (200).
