Abstract

The present invention is intended to improve distribution chains by allowing, on the one hand, immediate totalling of the price of the articles purchased, thus avoiding the client waiting at the cash desks, and, on the other hand, acquisition of data relating to these same articles, promoting better awareness of the sale as well as easier inventory control. The brief description of the invention is as follows; it comprises: 1. trolleys for use by the customers 1 equipped with a label reader and with a totalling counter C fitted with a memory M storing the information read from the labels E; 2. special labels E containing coded information and printed passive resonance circuits allowing control of the "reading"; 3. a radio transmitter EH with variable frequencies associated with a detector D provided to make the passive resonant circuits printed on the labels pass into resonance if they have not been "read" by the "reader", thus detecting possible theft; 4. an electronic member OC available to the cashiers allowing them to transfer the data temporarily stored in the counters CD of the trolleys into the memories of a central computer MC. <IMAGE>

Description

La présente invention concerne un dispositif électronique et informatique destiné à être installé,entre autres,dans les magasins dc distribution alimentaire ou similaires type"Grandes Surfaces" The invention relates to an electronic and computer device to be installed, among others, in the food retail stores or similar type dc "Superstores"
Jusqu'a présent,dans la majorité des cas,le client de ce gen < e de magasins passe autant de temps,sinon plus,à certaines heures, dans les files d'attente aux caisses de sortie que pour faire ses achats1ce qui décourage de nombreux clients potentiels. Until now, in most cases, the client of this gen <e stores spend as much time, if not more, at certain hours in queues at checkouts as to its achats1ce which discourages many potential customers.

D'autre part,le client ne peut que difficilement se faire une idée du montant de ses achats tant que ceus-ci ne sont pas terminés et totalisés à la caisse. On the other hand, the client can hardly get an idea of ​​the amount of purchases as ceus it is not completed and totaled at checkout.

De même,pour le magasin la gestion des stocks et les statistiques journalières sont difficiles,l'acquisition des données sur les articles vendus étant décalée dans le temps par rapport à la réalité,avec les conséquences que cela implique,entre autres le mauvais approvisionnement des rayons Similarly, for the store inventory management and daily statistics are difficult, data acquisition on sold items being shifted in time compared to the reality, with the consequences that entails, among other bad supply rays
La présenteinvention permet d'éviter tous ces inconvénients The présenteinvention avoids these drawbacks
Le client aura à sa disposition pour faire ses achats un cha iOt équipé d'organes électroniques conçus pour lire et totaliser automatiquement dans un compteur défichable(CD)voir P1 2/2 /fig 1 te nombre d'articles et le prix à payer au fur et à mesure de l'in- production des marchandises achetéea,rendant inutile la totalisation habituelle à la sortie,du prix des articles,lui faisant gagner un temps important. The customer will have available to shop a cha IOT equipped with electronic units designed to play automatically and in a total défichable counter (CD) 2/2 see P1 / fig 1 te number of items and the price at as the in- achetéea production of goods, rendering unnecessary the usual totalizing exit, prices of items, earning him an important time. Ces données sont stockées dans une mémoire contenue dans le compteur défichable(CD). These data are stored in a memory contained in the défichable counter (CD).

Pour le magasin cela permettra l'acquisition immédiate des données concernant les sarchandises vendues,pour la gestion et la sur veillance serrée des stocks et les statistiques journalières et vraisemblablement amènera un afflux de clients supplèmentaires attirés par le gain de temps. In the store it will allow the immediate acquisition of data on sarchandises sold to management and on veillance tight inventory and daily statistics and likely will bring an influx of new customers attracted by saving time.

On trouvera donc,d'une part les chariots spéciaux mis à la disposition des clients et,d'autre part les articles mis en vente munis d'étiquettes spéciales pouvant être lues par le lecteur équipant chaque chariot. So we find, firstly special trolleys available to customers and the other items on sale equipped with special tags that can be read by the reader equipping each carriage.

Sur l'étiquette,on trouvera: On the label, you will find:
te/ En clair:la nature du produiton poids,gon pris you / In short: the nature of weight produiton gon taken
20/En code machine(le mot code machine étant ici pris dans son sens le plus large,ctest à dire lisible par une machine,pas exemple en code binaire ou code barres etc...),le numéro de référence de l'ar vicle,son prix,sa date d'achat et toutes informations utiles pour la gestion des stocks et les statistiques.Pour un contrôle visuel éven- tuel à la sortie,une zone particulière de l'étiquette sera détruite d la lecture. 20 / In machine code (machine code word being taken here in its broadest sense, to say ctest machine readable, no example in binary code or barcode, etc ...), the ar of the reference number vicle, price, date of purchase and all useful information for inventory management and statistiques.Pour a visual check Even-tual exit, a particular area of ​​the label will be destroyed to play.

30/ Un circuit imprimé d'un ou plusieurs bobinages résonnants passifs voir P@ 1 / 2 fig. 30 / A circuit of one or more passive resonant coils see P @ 1/2 Fig. 1. 1.

Cette étiquette sera constituée de matière souple mais indéchirable,ceci afin de rendre impossible la fraude par destruction partielle en ouvrant la continuité du circuit du(ou dea)bobinage(s) imprimé(s) This label will be composed of flexible but tear-resistant material, in order to make it impossible to fraud partial destruction by opening the continuity of the circuit (or dea) coil (s) printed (s)
Avantageusement l'étiquette sera conçue de façon à être lue par Preferably the label is designed to be read by
le lecteur quelle que soit la façon dont elle lui est présentée Elle devra pour cela être imprimée de 2(ou multiple de 2)bobinages résonants(BR)et de 2 zones d'informations codées(IC).Voir Pl. i / 2 fig. the reader regardless of the way it is presented to it It will be printed for that of two (or a multiple of 2) resonant coils (BR) and two encoded information areas (IC) .See Pl. i / 2 fig . 1. 1.

Cela aura en plus comme avantage que la destruction accidentelle ou volontaire de l'un des circuits passifs de détection ne rende pas inopérante la détection d'un article non pris en compte par le lecteur.Egalement,les bobinages imprimé sur l'étiquette ne seront pas visibles pour le clients seront recouverts d'une pellicule non conductrice(P)non transparente,rendant difficile leur localisation,donc leur destruction volontaire. This will have more advantage that accidental or deliberate destruction of one of detection passive circuits do not render inoperative the detection of an article not taken into account by the lecteur.Egalement, the windings on the label will not not visible to the customers will be covered with a non-conductive film (P) non-transparent, making it difficult location, so their voluntary destruction.

L'étiquette(E),qui devra être collée sur une face plane de l'eo- ballage des articles(A),fera saillie sur cette face afin de 'encas- trer lors de l'opération de lecture dans le lecteur(L),dont une partie(la partie active de l'acquisition des données)aura la forme voulue pour cela.Voir Pl. i / 2 fig. The label (E), to be adhered to a planar face of the EO- packing for articles (A), will protrude from this face in order to 'encas- trate when the read operation in the reader (L ), part of which (the active part of the data acquisition) has the shape desired for cela.Voir Pl. i / 2 fig. 2. 2.

Lorsque le client choisit un articwe,il l'applique sur le lec teur(L)dont est muni le chariot;cela décltnche,d'une part l'acquisition des données inscrites sur l'étiquette et leur transfert dans la mémoire du compteuret,d'autre part la destruction d'une zone particulière de l'étiquette(comme dit plus haut pour contrôle visuel),mais When the customer selects a articwe, he applies on the lec tor (L) which is provided with the carriage; décltnche this, firstly the acquisition of data written on the label and their transfer into the memory of compteuret, secondly, the destruction of a particular area of ​​the label (as said above for visual inspection), but
également pour ouvrir les circuits des bobinages résonants passifs also to open the circuit resonant passive coils
imprimés.Pour cela le lecteur est muni d'une source de tension dont imprimés.Pour that the reader has a voltage source whose
la DDPest appliquée sur les points A et B de l'étiquette au moment the DDPest applied to points A and B of the label at the time
de la lecture.Voir P1. the lecture.Voir P1. i / 2 fig. i / 2 Fig. i. i.

5 Si un article est introduit dans le chariot(ou mis dards la poche 5 If an article is inserted into the carriage (or set darts pocket
du client)sans avoir été pris en compte par le lecteur,la détection de customer) without having been considered by the reader, detection
cet état de choses se fera de la façon suivante: this situation will be as follows:
Un émetteur hertzien à fréquences variable installé dans chaque cl t(velsion A)balaie entre une fréquence plus grande et une fré pence plus petite que la fréquence de résonance du circuit passif imprimé sur l'étiquette.Si la zone destructible de l'étiquette n'est pas grillée par la lecture,le circuit des bobinages résonnants n'étant pas ouvert,un détecteur associé à l'émetteur réagit lorsque le balayage de fréquences passe par la fréquence de résonance du bobinage imprimé.Cette détection déclenche une signalisation visuelle et/ou sonore alertant le client de "son oubli" Cette alarme sera arrêtée par la lecture de l'étiquette non lue ou la repose de l'article dans le rayon. A wireless transmitter at variable frequencies installed in each cl t (velsion A) sweeps between a higher frequency and a smaller fre pence that the resonant frequency of the passive circuit printed on étiquette.Si the destructible zone of the n tag is not burned out by the reading circuit of the resonant windings is not open, a detector associated with the transmitter responds when the frequency sweep goes through the imprimé.Cette winding of the resonance frequency detection activates a visual signal and / or audible alerting the customer of his "forgetfulness" This alarm will be stopped by reading the unread label or refitting the article in the radius.

Dans la version B,l'émetteur hertzien et la détection associée n'existeront qu'à la sortie,aux caisses. In version B, the radio transmitter and detection associated only exist exit, at the checkout.

Le principe de la lecture peur être magnétique ou optique ou autre,l'important étant que l'étiquette dont seront munis les arti- cles mis en vente comporte,d'une part des informations convenables et d'autre part un circuit imprimé passif pouvant être mis hors circuit lors de l'opération de lecture. The principle of reading be afraid magnetic or optical else is important is the label that will accompany arti- cles on sale includes, firstly proper information and secondly a passive circuit that can be switched off during the read operation.

La mémoire provisoire dont est muni le compteur totalisateur équipant chaque chariot peut être de divers types.On peut citer,entre autres,de la mémoire RAM ou de la mémoire électriquement effacable connue sous le nom technique de EEPROMDans le cas ou la mémoire RAM serait employée,le compteur devra avoir Sa propre alimentation autonome afin de ne pas perdre les informations à transférer au moment du défichage. Temporary memory which is provided with the odometer equipping each carriage can be of various types.On may be mentioned, among others, RAM memory or electrically erasable memory known under the technical name EEPROMDans the case where the RAM is used the counter must have his own independent power supply in order not to lose the information to be transferred at the time of unplugging.

Aux caisses de sortie,le client,grace au compteur totalisateur (CD),sachant dejà ce qu'il a à payer defiche ce dernier qui sert en même temps de mémoire provisoire,le donne à la caissière.Celle-ci devra être équipée d'un matériel électronique permettant de transférer à un ordinateur central,en vue d'un traitement ulterieur,toutes les données inscrites sur les étiquettes. At checkout, the customer, thanks to the total counter (CD), already knowing what he has to pay Plug out the latter which serves as temporary storage time, the gives the caissière.Celle will have to be equipped an electronic equipment to be transferred to a central computer for a later treatment, all the data on the labels.

Pour la version B le controle automatique confirmant que tous les articles introduits par le client dans le chariot ont été totali séa,n'aura évidemment lieu qu'à la sortie. For the B automatic control confirming that all items introduced by the customer in the carriage were totali Sea will obviously rise to the exit.

Pour les 2 versîons,les caissières n'accepteront le compteur d'un client et ne lui feront régler ce qui y est affiché que 'il n'y a pas de signalisation de non lecture. For the 2 versions, the cashiers will accept the counter of a customer and will adjust what is displayed there him 'no not read signs.

I1 y a en plus 2 contrôles complémentaires possible: I1 are also 2 additional checks possible:
-1/En comparant le nombre d'articles dans le chariot avec le nombre affiché sur le compteur totalisateur,car ce dernier,non seulement totalisera la somme à payer mais comptera le nombre d'articles pris en compte. -1 / Comparing the number of items in the cart with the number displayed on the odometer, because it not only total amount payable but count the number of items considered.

-2/Par contrôle visuel,puisque chaque article est muni d'une piquette comportant une zone destructible à la lecture. -2 / By visual inspection, since each section is provided with a cheap wine having a destructible zone reading.

Il peut être souhaitable de prévoir une caisse spéciale permettant éventuellement le remboursement d'articles pris en compte par le lecteur mais non désirés par le client,et d'une façon générale pour toute déduction éventuelle. It may be desirable to provide a special fund for possible reimbursement of items considered by the reader but unwanted by the customer, and generally for any possible deduction.

Il est bien évident que la description qui précède n'a été donné qu'à titre d'exemple non limitatif et que des nom- breuses variantes peuvent être envisagées sans pour autant sortir du cadre de l'invention. It is obvious that the above description has been given by way of example and that NOM breuses variants can be envisaged without departing from the scope of the invention.
