Title: STORAGE SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
Method for monitoring the amount of objects (2) in a storage unit (100A, 100B, 100C, 100D), or for monitoring the fill rate of a storage unit. In the method, one or more capacitive proximity sensors (5A, 5B, 5C, 5D) are used for monitoring a storage unit (100A, 100B, 100C, 100D), or a part of it, from which proximity sensor on/off-type data is taken about whether or not there are detectable objects in the detection area of the sensor.
