Title (EN) AUTOMATIC CHECKOUT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CAISSE AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods, systems, and apparatus for an automatic checkout system. The system includes a gateway having one or more sensors configured to detect when a patron and the item are within a sensing area and when the patron and the item have left the sensing area, and one or more sensors configured to detect a patron identification associated with the patron and an item identification associated with the item when the patron and the item are within the sensing area. The system also includes an inventory management unit connected to the gateway. The inventory management unit is configured to identify the patron based on the patron identification, identify the item based on the item identification, and update a database when the patron and the item have left the sensing area to indicate that the patron has checked out the item.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés, des systèmes et un appareil pour un système de caisse automatique. Le système comprend une passerelle ayant un ou plusieurs capteurs configurés pour détecter lorsqu'un client et l'article se trouvent dans une zone de détection et lorsque le client et l'article ont quitté la zone de détection, et un ou plusieurs capteurs configurés pour détecter une identification de client associée au client et une identification d'article associée à l'article lorsque le client et l'élément se trouvent dans la zone de détection. Le système comprend également une unité de gestion d'inventaire connectée à la passerelle. L'unité de gestion d'inventaire est configurée pour identifier le client sur la base de l'identification de client, identifier l'article sur la base de l'identification d'article, et mettre à jour une base de données lorsque le client et l'article ont quitté la zone de détection pour indiquer que le client a emprunté l'article.
