Title
(EN) REMOVABLE DATA STORAGE MEDIA TRACKING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SUIVI DE SUPPORTS DE STOCKAGE DE DONNÉES AMOVIBLES
Abstract
(EN)
A system (140) for tracking locations of portable data storage media (110) includes media with a wireless tag (112) storing metadata pertaining to its stored data. The (tag112) is adapted to respond to an interrogatory signal by wirelessly transmitting a signal comprising the metadata (118), e.g., is a high frequency radio frequency identification (RFID) tag powered inductively to transmit contents of its memory (114). The system includes a stationary (120) and mobile locators (160) that includes tag readers (154, 164) transmitting the interrogatory signals to the media and receiving the metadata signals from the wireless tags. Mobile ones of the locators include a communication module receiving location data (e.g., Global Positioning System (GPS) data) and sending wireless signals made up of the received location data and the received metadata signals. The system includes a media tracker that receives signals from the mobile locator and determines and stores locations of the media typically along with a time stamp.
(FR)
Système pour suivre des localisations de supports de stockage de données portables comprenant des supports avec une étiquette sans fil stockant des métadonnées se rapportant à ses données stockées. L'étiquette est adaptée pour répondre à un signal interrogateur par la transmission sans fil d'un signal comprenant les métadonnées; il s'agit par exemple d'une étiquette d'identification par radiofréquence (RFID) haute fréquence alimentée inductivement pour transmettre le contenu de sa mémoire. Le système comprend des localisateurs stationnaires et mobiles qui comprennent des lecteurs d'étiquettes transmettant les signaux interrogateurs aux supports et recevant les signaux de métadonnées des étiquettes sans fil. Les localisateurs mobiles comprennent un module de communication recevant des données de localisation (par exemple, des données du système GPS (système de positionnement mondial)) et envoyant des signaux sans fil constitués des données de localisation reçues et des signaux de métadonnées reçus. Le système comprend un suiveur de supports qui reçoit des signaux du localisateur mobile et détermine et stocke typiquement des localisations des supports conjointement avec une horodate.
