Title (EN) REMOTE WEIGHT MEASUREMENT OF A PRODUCT SUPPORT MEMBER
(FR) MESURE DE POIDS À DISTANCE D'UN ÉLÉMENT DE SUPPORT DE PRODUIT
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, systems, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to determine a weight of products on a product support structure. More specifically, the product support structure can be provided on a suspension system having one or more springs that can be monitored for compression to thereby determine a weight of products on the product support structure. In several embodiments, non-visible electromagnetic (EM) waves, can be directed at the spring and reflections of the non-visible EM waves can be received and analyzed to determine a compression of the spring.
(FR) Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des systèmes, des appareils et des procédés utiles pour déterminer un poids de produits sur une structure de support de produit. Plus spécifiquement, la structure de support de produit peut être disposée sur un système de suspension ayant un ou plusieurs ressorts dont la compression peut être surveillée pour ainsi déterminer un poids de produits sur la structure de support de produit. Selon plusieurs modes de réalisation, des ondes électromagnétiques (EM) invisibles peuvent être dirigées au niveau du ressort et les réflexions des ondes EM invisibles peuvent être reçues et analysées pour déterminer une compression du ressort.
