Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF MANAGING PRODUCTS ON A SHELF USING A COMPUTER SYSTEM IN COMMUNICATION WITH ELECTRONIC SHELF LABELS AND ROBOTIC UNITS OR MOBILE DEVICES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE GESTION DE PRODUITS SUR UN RAYON À L'AIDE D'UN SYSTÈME INFORMATIQUE EN COMMUNICATION AVEC DES ÉTIQUETTES DE RAYON ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DES UNITÉS ROBOTIQUES OU DES DISPOSITIFS MOBILES
Abstract
(EN)
A method of managing products on a shelf by using a computer system in communication with an electronic shelf label (ESL) and a scanning device includes scanning by the scanning device the electronic shelf label attached to the shelf in a vicinity of one or more products, and detecting an out area on the shelf. The method also includes receiving by the computer system a position of the electronic shelf label transmitted by the electronic shelf label, communicating by the scanning device the location of the out area to the computer system, identifying by the computer system a location of the electronic shelf label based on the position, identifying a backroom electronic shelf label associated with products associated with the out area, and activating the backroom electronic shelf label with an action message.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de gestion de produits sur un rayon, au moyen d'un système informatique en communication avec une étiquette d'étagère électronique (ESL) et un dispositif de balayage, consiste à balayer, par le dispositif de balayage, l'étiquette de rayon électronique fixée au rayon à proximité d'un ou de plusieurs produits, et à détecter une zone de sortie sur le rayon. Le procédé consiste également à recevoir, par le système informatique, une position de l'étiquette de rayon électronique transmise par l'étiquette de rayon électronique, à communiquer par le dispositif de balayage l'emplacement de la zone de sortie au système informatique, à identifier par le système informatique un emplacement de l'étiquette de rayon électronique sur la base de la position, à identifier une étiquette de rayon électronique de salle arrière associée à des produits associés à la zone de sortie, et à activer l'étiquette de rayon électronique de salle arrière par un message d'action.
