Title
(EN) WEIGHT-BASED DISPENSING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DISTRIBUTION BASÉ SUR LE POIDS
Abstract
(EN)
A weight-based dispensing system is disclosed. The system includes a platform and a container, coupled to the platform, including a lid configured to move between a closed state restricting access to items in the container and an open state allowing access to the items in the container. The system also includes at least two weight sensors, wherein each of the weight sensors is coupled to the platform and is configured to determine a change in weight on the platform, and a controller configured to determine a change in the number of items in the container based on the state of the lid and the change in weight on the platform. A method for dispensing items is also disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un système de distribution basé sur le poids. Le système comprend une plateforme et un récipient, couplé à la plateforme, comprenant un couvercle configuré pour se déplacer entre un état fermé bloquant l'accès aux articles dans le récipient et un état ouvert permettant l'accès aux articles dans le récipient. Le système comprend également au moins deux capteurs de poids, chacun des capteurs de poids étant couplé à la plateforme et étant configuré pour déterminer un changement de poids sur la plateforme, et un dispositif de commande configuré pour déterminer un changement dans le nombre d'articles dans le récipient en fonction de l'état du couvercle et du changement de poids sur la plateforme. L'invention porte également sur un procédé pour distribuer des articles.
