(EN) SHOPPING CART AND ASSOCIATED SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) CHARIOT D'ACHAT ET SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN) Described in detail herein are systems and methods for interacting with an interactive display on a computing system based on sound detection. A user can actuate a button on a handle portion of a shopping cart, by pressing the button as the shopping cart is within a predetermined distance of a computing system including an interactive display. The button can generate a sound with a unique tone. An array of microphones can detect the sound generated by the button. The microphones can encode the sound into an electrical signal and transmit the electrical signal to the computing system. The computing system can identify the sound and the correlated action. The computing system can execute the correlated action on the interactive display of the computing system.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour interagir avec un affichage interactif sur un système informatique sur la base d'une détection sonore. Un utilisateur peut actionner un bouton sur une partie poignée d'un chariot d'achat, en pressant le bouton lorsque le chariot d'achat se trouve dans une distance prédéterminée d'un système informatique comprenant un affichage interactif. Le bouton peut générer un son avec une tonalité unique. Un réseau de microphones peut détecter le son généré par le bouton. Les microphones peuvent coder l'ensemble des sons dans un signal électrique et transmettre le signal électrique au système informatique. Le système informatique peut identifier le son et l'action corrélée. Le système informatique peut exécuter l'action corrélée sur l'affichage interactif du système informatique.
