Title (EN) DELIVERY RESERVATION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉSERVATION DE LIVRAISON
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to manage reservations and deliveries for a docking station. More specifically, the various embodiments described herein track spaces on a docking station to determine whether one or more spaces are available when requested by a delivery device. Each space on the docking station has a corresponding capacity unit for each location on the docking station. The transactions for the capacity units are tracked in a ledger, with available capacity units indicating an open location on the docking station or contracted out capacity units indicating that either the location has a locker secured thereto or that the location is reserved for a future delivery.
(FR) La présente invention porte, dans certains modes de réalisation, sur des appareils et sur des procédés utiles pour gérer des réservations et des livraisons pour une station d'accueil. De façon plus précise, les divers modes de réalisation de la présente invention suivent des espaces sur une station d'accueil pour déterminer si un ou plusieurs espaces sont disponibles ou non lorsqu'ils sont demandés par un dispositif de livraison. Chaque espace sur la station d'accueil présente une unité de capacité correspondante pour chaque emplacement sur la station d'accueil. Les transactions pour les unités de capacité sont suivies dans un registre, les unités de capacité disponibles indiquant un emplacement ouvert sur la station d'accueil ou des unités de capacité sous-traitées indiquant que soit l'emplacement comporte un casier fixé à ce dernier, soit l'emplacement est réservé pour une future livraison.
