Title (EN) COLOR DETECTION SYSTEM FOR DETECTING RESERVOIR PRESENCE AND CONTENT IN MEDICAL FLUID ADMINISTRATION DEVICE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DÉTECTION DE COULEUR DESTINÉ À DÉTECTER LA PRÉSENCE ET LE CONTENU D’UN RÉSERVOIR DANS UN DISPOSITIF
Abstract:
(EN) A system for identifying a reservoir used with a fluid delivery device. The system includes a reservoir (10) comprising a housing for holding fluid and a colored marking (12) located on a surface of the housing. A fluid delivery device includes a compartment for receiving and operatively coupling with the reservoir. A light source shines light on the colored marking of the reservoir. A color sensor detects wavelengths reflected and/or refracted from the colored marking due to the light shined on the colored marking. A processor of the delivery device determines a color of the colored marking from the detected wavelengths and ascertains information related to the reservoir or the fluid in the reservoir corresponding to the determined color, wherein the processor operates the fluid delivery device according to the ascertained information, wherein the information may include a reservoir type and/or medication type.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système d’identification d’un réservoir utilisé avec un dispositif de délivrance de fluide. Le système comprend un réservoir qui comprend un logement destiné à contenir un fluide et une marque colorée située sur une surface du logement. Le dispositif de délivrance de fluide comprend un compartiment destiné à recevoir le réservoir et à se coupler avec celui-ci de manière opérationnelle. Une source de lumière illumine la marque colorée du réservoir. Un détecteur de couleur détecte les longueurs d’onde réfléchies et/ou réfractées de la marque colorée en raison de la lumière qui éclaire la marque colorée. Un processeur du dispositif de délivrance détermine une couleur de la marque colorée des longueurs d’onde détectées et vérifie les informations liées au réservoir ou au fluide dans le réservoir correspondant à la couleur déterminée, le processeur faisant fonctionner le dispositif de délivrance de fluide selon les informations vérifiées, les informations pouvant inclure un type de réservoir et/ou un type de médicament.
