Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTOMATED MONITORING OF THE CONTENTS OF A CONTAINER
Abstract:
The present technology may relate to a substantially real-time container monitoring system for monitoring the content of containers such as beverage bottles. The monitoring system may be automated to record the content of the containers according to a metric such as the container's weight. The monitoring system may capture variances in the container's content for reconciliation with data such as sales data to expose irregularities in the consumption of the container's contents and may provide inferences as to the cause of those irregularities. Various embodiments of the monitoring system may comprise a scale assembly for producing scale data, a processor module communicatively linked to the scale assembly, and a front end server application for processing the scale data and presenting it to a user.
