Abstract

Device (interface) for adapting a conventional item vending machine for its use by blind individuals.The requirements of the customer that are translated into electric signals by pressing certain buttons of the machine, or by inserting a chip card or magnetic tape. These signals are processed by a microcontroller that, once programmed, generates a serial communication with the voice module, to which it indicates the message to be pronounced. The prices of the products are stored in the purse, which identifies them by channel number. It is this number that the machine transmits so that the purse can decide if there is enough credit or not: if there is, it returns the order to sell to the machine. The machine - purse communication is not performed the first time the required item is pressed; the first press is used only to generate the voice that indicates to the blind individual the name of the product requested; only if within the pre-programmed time a code equal to the internal code is received, by pressing the button again, the signal is sent to the purse (according to the protocol described in the previous paragraph), allowing the normal operation of the machine in its entirety. On the other hand, if the second code received identifies the request for another product, the system behaves as if said code were the first code received, reproducing by voice the name of the product contained in said channel, and restarting the time so that with a second push of the same channel, it allows the machine to supply it. The interface is equipped with a card reader for recognising the holder as a blind individual and for proceeding to transmit the corresponding sound messages. The cards are configured to also work as an electronic pulse, indicating the available balance.<IMAGE>
