This invention relates to the banknote processing apparatus provided in an ATM or a money exchange machine, More specifically, the banknote processing apparatus which manages the banknote and the customer which corresponded, the banknote processing system, banknote information A management server, a bill information management program, and a bill processing method.

In general, a banknote processing apparatus which is configured internally in an ATM, a money exchanger, or the like, when a banknote is deposited by a deposit transaction, the banknote reading unit reads the unique information of the deposited banknote and installs the banknote in accordance with the readout banknote information. The storage process or half angle process is performed inside.

Regarding the deposit transaction of the banknote, the banknote information such as the bank note number and the customer ID information are correlated and stored so that the relationship between the handled banknote and the customer can be combined. In this way, in the event of a financial trouble or grievance by a customer when an automatic transaction occurs, a device that allows combination confirmation immediately is proposed (see Patent Document 1, for example).

However, there is a problem in reading a note number portion from a bill as a combination method of combining a bill and a customer handled by matching the bill number of a bill and ID information of a customer. For example, the shape of the banknote and the state of the front and back of the banknote may not be recognized due to breakage, folding or bending of the banknote. In this case, since the position of the part printing the serial number cannot be specified, the character recognition of the serial number and the image of the serial number printing unit cannot be stored. In addition, when handling a banknote which cannot be recognized, it becomes impossible to cope with the case where a money trouble or trouble occurs after that.

In addition, when a banknote is discriminated by the banknote discrimination means which discriminates the unique information of a banknote, when a paper grade and an amount of money cannot be confirmed, the image of a banknote is memorize | stored before collect | recovering the banknote in a collection box. As a result, a bill handling control method has been proposed that can store not only the kind information of bills but also information on the degree of handwrittenness, and facilitates the corrective inspection by the accountants of subsequent financial institutions. See Patent Document 2).

By the way, when banknote image information is memorize | stored, the image of this big data size is memorize | stored, communication, and a search, and it puts a big burden on operation with respect to memory and communication. Further, a problem arises in that the cost is high because a large amount of image information is stored.

In addition, by storing the withdrawal notes, the image information and the feature data of the bills imported from the customer, and finding the similarity when the combination of these bills is needed, the paper sheet is clear that the correspondence with the customer becomes clear and the problem is solved. A management system is proposed (for example, refer patent document 3).

However, even in this case, as a storage system that handles large data such as banknote image information, storing the large data size, and communicating and retrieving it are a great burden on the memory and communication. In addition, when the data size is large, the searching time is increased, and the burden on the system is large. For this reason, even when a trouble occurs, even if it is possible to cope with, for example, the bill and the customer, the time to wait for the customer when the banknote is traded becomes long, and the serviceability to the customer is deteriorated.

Next, the control part 200, the banknote conveyance part 150, and the banknote reading part 160 demonstrate the procedure of storing the banknote number and the image information of a banknote.

4 is a flowchart showing a processing sequence at the time of deposit transaction.

In this deposit processing, first, it waits until there is a deposit transaction by the depositor (step S100). As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, whether or not the deposit transaction is present, the card is inserted by the depositor into the card receiving unit 130, the bankbook is inserted into the bankbook accepting unit 140, and the deposit is displayed on the display operation unit 120. The operation of the reception is determined by the operation by the depositor.

If there is a deposit transaction by the depositor, the control unit 200 reads the deposit operation by the depositor (step S102), and specifies the depositor on the basis of the reading result of the card or bankbook described above (step S104).

Subsequent to the specification of the depositor, the control unit 200 instructs the banknote conveying unit 150 to introduce the banknote in order to accept the deposit of the banknote. The deposit and withdrawal processing unit 151 controls release of the shutter 111 in the banknote accepting and dispensing mechanism unit 110, and inserts a banknote into the customer to receive the banknote (step S106).

That is, after closing the shutter 111, the received banknotes are received one by one in the deposit path 152 as described above and conveyed to the banknote reading unit 160 to read the image of the banknote (step S108).

Here, the banknote conveyance and the reading operation of a banknote image of step S108 are shown in the flowchart of FIG.

The banknote reading part 160 scans with the scanner part 161 built-in one by one (step S202), conveying the transfer banknote which is conveyed (step S200), and outputs the scan result to the banknote determination part 163. do.

The banknote judging unit 163 judges the type or authenticity of the banknotes and outputs them to the identification control unit 162. It is not suitable for storage in the temporary storage 116, such as when the type of paper is unidentifiable or cannot be determined as a real banknote, or when the returned banknote is contaminated, damaged, folded, or when two or more banknotes are stacked and conveyed. When it determines, the identification control part 162 outputs the instruction | instruction to the depositor to the depositor withdrawal processing part 151 via internal communication means B706 (step S204).

The above-described scan result is further output to the serial number extraction unit 165, image information of the serial number portion printed on the bill is extracted, and stored in the serial number recognition unit 166 and the identification storage unit 167. . The serial number recognition unit 166 executes character recognition of the serial number using this serial number image, and stores the character recognition result in the identification storage unit 167 (step S206). The image information of the serial number part referred to here refers to image information of a part of the surrounding area including the serial number.

When the banknote meets the banknote image storage conditions from the above-described banknote recognition results, image information and the like of the entire banknote are stored in the identification storage unit 167 (steps S208, S210). A banknote image storage condition is mentioned later with FIG. 9, FIG. In addition, the data stored in the identification memory | storage part 167 is mentioned later with FIG. Such a process is repeated until all the banknotes deposited in the banknote input hopper 112 are conveyed (step S212).

If the above-described banknote is determined to be unreadable by the banknote reading unit 160, the banknote is half-embossed with the banknote dispensing stacker 114. The depositor removes the bill half-width with this banknote dispensing stacker 114, performs a deposit counting, etc., and a deposit operation is performed.

The deposit counting end process differs in operation when the amount of the deposit count is determined, when the depositor forgets the half-billed bill and withdraws the cash without collecting the deposit count, and when the depositor cancels the deposit count. . When the depositor confirms the amount of the deposit count, the deposit transaction is established, and the control unit 200 prints the statement of the deposit transaction and embosses the bankbook or card to the depositor (step S110).

Then, the banknote conveyance result information including additional information of banknotes, such as a bill transfer destination and a return destination of a banknote, is sent from the deposit / exit processing part 151 to the upper memory | storage part 206 via the content communication line A702, and is stored. (See Figure 2). Subsequently, the bill image information associated with each bill conveyance information stored in the identification storage unit 167 is compressed and encrypted by the compression / encryption unit 168, and is stored in the upper storage unit (via the internal communication line C708). 206) and store it (step S112).

The bills temporarily stored in the temporary storage 116 are conveyed to the storage part 170 lower than this. At this time, similar to the processing of steps S200 to S212 shown in FIG. 5 described above, the banknote reading unit 160 reads and stores the banknote image information (step S114).

Thereafter, the compression and encryption unit 168 compresses and encrypts the image information of the read banknote and transfers it to the upper storage unit 206 (step S116). When the depositor does not take out the half-width notes even after a certain period of time, and the deposit is not confirmed, the take-out forgetting processing is performed.

When the number of take-out forgettings is performed, the collection of accounts and cards is performed (step S110), the image information stored in the identification storage unit 167 is compressed and encrypted by the compression / encryption unit 168, and the upper storage unit ( 206) (step S112). The banknote dispensing stacker 114 drives the pressing plate to move the dispensed banknotes from the space of the banknote dispensing stacker 114 to the space of the banknote dispensing hopper 112 and through the deposit path 152, the banknote passing sensor 155. The banknote is conveyed to the banknote reading part 160, the banknote reading part 160 is read out, and it is conveyed to the take-out forgetful collection | recovery warehouse 176, and stored. Banknotes in the temporary storage 116 are conveyed to the banknote reading unit 160 to read the banknote image information, and the banknotes are stored in the take-out forgetful collection 176 (step S114). Thereafter, the read / decrypted image information is compressed and encrypted by the compression / encryption unit 168 and transferred to the upper storage unit 206 (step S116).

When the deposit is canceled, first of all, the bills temporarily stored in the temporary storage 116 are embossed from the bill acceptor dispensing mechanism unit 110 and conveyed to the bill reading unit 160 to read the bill image information. As described above, the image information is compressed and encrypted and transmitted to the upper storage unit 206 (steps S110 to S116).

Next, it demonstrates with reference to the flowchart of FIG. 6 which shows the process sequence at the time of withdrawal transaction.

Similar to the above-mentioned deposit processing, it waits until a card or bankbook is inserted (step S300). When the card or the bankbook is inserted by the cashier, the cashier is specified based on the read result (step S302). In addition, an input operation (step S304), such as a withdrawal amount, is performed by the withdrawal person, and the bill is continued from the storage 173 in accordance with the inputted withdrawal information, and the operation at the time of deposit shown in FIG. 5 (steps S200 to S212) and Similarly, banknote reading is performed by banknote reading part 160 (step S306). When all banknotes are read out, the process of printing a withdrawal statement of a withdrawal transaction, and ending | finishing an account book and a card by a cashier is performed (step S308).

After that, the compression / encryption unit 168 compresses and encrypts the image information stored in the identification storage unit 167, and transmits the image information to the upper storage unit 206 (step S310).

If the withdrawn money is not received even after a certain period of time, the withdrawal forgetting processing is performed. First, an end process of collecting the bankbook and the card is performed (step S308). The withdrawn banknote which has not been received is conveyed to the banknote reading part 160, and after reading banknote image information (step S312), it is accommodated in the take-out forgetful collection | recovery warehouse 176. Thereafter, the image of the read banknote is compressed and encrypted by the compression / encryption unit 168 and transmitted to the upper storage unit 206 (step S314).

Next, the processing operation | movement which stores the image of a banknote is demonstrated.

FIG. 7: is explanatory drawing which showed typically the banknote conveyance state from the banknote insertion hopper 112 to the banknote reading part 160 about the banking path 152 at the time of banknote receipt counting. In the scanner section of the banknote reading unit 160, scanning of the front and back of the banknote is preferable in operation, but in the embodiment, the banknote is described with a drawing of one side of the banknote.

The banknotes are conveyed from the banknote loading hopper 112 toward the banknote reading section 160. [ The scanner unit 161 of the banknote reading unit 160 photographs the image of the banknote even when the banknote passes or does not pass. The photographed image information is output to the paper currency image extracting section 164. After the paper currency passes through the scanner section 161, the paper currency image extracting section 164 extracts from the front end to the rear end of the paper currency as the paper currency image information do.

The left side of FIG. 7 shows image information from which the banknote 511 has been read, and the right side of FIG. 7 shows banknote data 521 to be stored. For example, in the case of the skew banknote 512 in which the banknote was inclined greatly and conveyed, the length from the front end to the rear end of the banknote conveying direction is longer than the above-described banknote data 521 as the banknote data 522. Will be read.

In addition, in the case of the stacked conveyance banknote 513 conveyed by conveying two or more banknotes, the data from the front end of the first banknote to the rear end of the last banknote is treated as one data 523.

In the banknote processing apparatus with which the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100 is equipped, the handwritten banknote 514 in which the banknote is divided | segmented small by the damage etc. may be handled. This handwritten banknote 514 occurs when one side of the damaged banknote cannot be conveyed in the middle of the conveying path and is stagnant or when the damaged banknote is originally deposited. These images are referred to by cash management, such as mismatch of cash, inside the apparatus, and are read out as the storage data 524 of the bill image.

By the way, on the other hand, the small paper scrap 515 which does not reach handling may be conveyed. On the other hand, as shown in the flowchart of FIG. 8, a fixed standard (for example, the area of the detected banknote is 200 mm <2> or more) is provided in the magnitude | size of a banknote as a detection medium (step S401), and it is a banknote of a large area more than a reference | standard, It stores as banknote image information (step S402), and if it is a banknote of an area smaller than a reference | standard, it will judge that it is other than a banknote, and will not store a banknote image (step S403). This criterion may be smaller than the size allowed by the banknote conveying path as the medium conveyance, and can be utilized when the defect of the banknote conveying path is detected by the banknote image information. These image information are output to the identification memory | storage part 167, when conditions match with the conveyance conditions of the banknote mentioned above or the determination result of banknote mentioned above.

In particular, at the time of data management, in order to configure the storage data concerning a banknote to the minimum required, in the control part 200, the banknote processed as transaction is made into identification object, and the identification information of the banknote which is the identification object is a banknote as identification information acquisition means. Acquired by the reading unit 160. Based on the identification state at the time of banknote identification acquired by this banknote reading part 160, the banknote determination part 163 as a memory information classification determination means determines the information type which memorize | stores with respect to a banknote. Furthermore, it has a data management function controlled by the control part 200 as a storage control means so that the information regarding the banknote of the information type determined by this banknote determination part 163 is memorize | stored in the upper memory | storage part 206 as identification object storage information. Doing.

When storing banknote image information based on this data management function, it conforms to banknote image storage conditions. For example, in the case of a withdrawal transaction operation, when the banknote conveyance and identification information are normal readings, although the normal banknote does not have any unknown point in a banknote, there may be a claim regarding the banknote which the customer received. In order to be able to confirm the combination of the withdrawal banknote and the customer later, the control unit 200 uses the image information of the serial number portion of the banknote which should be a small storage capacity as the serial number image information 161b to the upper storage unit 206. Remember to manage your data. In addition, the image information of the reference number part means image information of a part of the area including the reference number.

On the other hand, when an abnormality arises in a banknote and it is impossible to read identification information, it is necessary to identify abnormality clearly, and the control part 200 stores the whole image of a banknote in the upper memory | storage part 206, and manages data. For example, in the banknote recognition result of the banknote reading unit 160, the case where the note number part of the banknote is a deficiency, the case where it is judged clearly as a counterfeit banknote, or the intentional graffiti or the hologram has been detected When an abnormality in a bill, such as a case, is detected, it is very effective for the control unit 200 to store the entire bill image in the upper storage unit 206 in order to respond to a customer claim such as a money trouble. In addition, when identification information cannot be read when a banknote is read by the banknote reading part 160, it means that at least one of the kind, number, and authenticity of the banknote is unknown.

In this way, the banknote image storage condition is set so that only the initial number portion at the time of normal operation stores the entire surface at the time of abnormality. Accordingly, when a banknote is associated with a customer for dealing with a customer claim after a transaction, if it is determined that the banknote is a normal banknote, it is necessary to cope with the minimum amount of data necessary to store the part number. It is set as the structure which stores the image information of the front side of a banknote. This eliminates the need for full-scale data for all bills, and in the case of normal bills, it is stored as small data, so that the storage capacity is at a minimum, so that the amount of data storage can be reduced, thereby burdening the operation of data processing. This reduces the speed and makes it possible to realize high speed and low cost.

In addition, the type of the serial number image information 161b and the total image information 161a is included as the information type determined by the banknote determination unit 163 at the time of image acquisition by the scanner unit 161. As a result, when acquiring the image determined by the banknote determining unit 163, the kind of part or the whole image is selected, and the efficient data management structure which stores only necessary data is aimed at.

9 and 10 show examples of these banknote image storage conditions.

9 graphically shows the relationship between the conveyance status of banknotes and the storage flag in the banknote conveyance mode. According to this diagram, when the bill is returned to normal, there is no need to remember it, so the image information on the entire bill is not stored. On the other hand, when it is recognized that conveyance other than normal conveyance is defined, the correspondence relationship is taken for every conveying unit, and it is defined to store image information of the front surface. Here, a conveying unit refers to a bundle of banknotes conveyed, and one sheet of banknotes at the time of normality, and a plurality of banknotes superimposed at the time of overlap conveyance are made into 1 unit.

In detail, when the conveyance mode is a deposit count, if the conveyance destination is a half-angle (that is, a half-width bill), the bill front image is stored. If the conveyance destination is a temporary storage (that is, a normal transaction), the bill front image is not stored.

If the transfer mode is deposit storage, if the transfer destination is a collection, it is determined whether or not to store the bill front image according to the recognition result (see FIG. 10). If the transfer destination is a storage (that is, normal transaction), the bill front image is not stored. .

When the conveyance mode is a deposit half-width ejection forgetting number of times, the conveyance destination is a ejection forgetting time return storage, and memorize | stores a banknote front image.

If the conveyance mode is deposit release, if the return destination is a collection, it is decided whether or not to store the bill front image according to the recognition result (see FIG. 10). If the conveyance destination is a half-angle, the bill front image is displayed according to the recognition result (see FIG. 10). Decide whether to remember.

When the conveyance mode is withdrawal half-width withdrawal forgetting number of times, the conveyance destination is withdrawal forgetting time recall and memorize | stores a banknote front image.

Thereby, the storage of the image information of the banknote is omitted in the normal conveyance state, and the image information of the banknote is stored only when it is other than the normal conveyance. At this time, since the rate of normal conveyance is high and the frequency of abnormal conveyance is very small, the number of times of acquiring image information of the banknote is small, so that the storage capacity is at least reduced, so that efficient data management can be achieved during transaction operation.

Fig. 10 graphically shows the relationship between the recognition result of reading the image of a banknote and the storage flag. According to this chart, there is no room for meeting when it is recognized that there is nothing unknown at the time of reading a bill, or when a trader's condition that the trader's usage information is matched is matched. Image information is not stored. On the other hand, when there is an unknown part of a banknote, it defines to take a correspondence relationship for every identification information and to store the image information of the front surface.

In detail, the recognition result may be unknown, no number of copies, counterfeit bill detection, matching with handwriting conditions, matching with handwriting conditions such as graffiti and hologram abnormalities, missing part number, or size of the read media area. The image of the front side of the banknote is acquired so as to acquire and ignore an image of a predetermined area or less, and when the recognition result is the normal or the trader condition agreement, the image of the front side of the banknote is not stored.

Accordingly, in the case of a normal banknote, the small image information of the reference number portion may be acquired, and the image information of the entire banknote is acquired only when the abnormal banknote is detected. At this time, since the circulation ratio of normal banknotes is high and the frequency of occurrence of abnormal banknotes is very small, the number of times of acquiring image information on the entire banknote is small, so that the storage capacity is at least reduced, so that efficient data management can be achieved during transaction management. .

It is preferable to make the definition for each identification information into the structure which can be displayed and changed by a worker panel. In this way, flexible correspondence with bank operation becomes possible.

In addition, at the time of data management at the time of transaction, the control unit 200 stores, as identification object storage information, at least one of transaction information about a transaction and customer information specifying a customer who has performed the transaction in the upper storage unit 206. Has a control function. In this way, the combination correspondence between the banknote and the customer is necessarily taken, and the banknote and the customer can be identified and managed in a traceable manner.

The storage information of the banknote as the identification object storage information stored in the control unit 200 includes the operation information of the customer when the customer takes over the banknote, the image information of the banknote when the banknote is identified, and the banknote. It consists of at least 1 or more of conveyance information of the banknote.

First, as the operation information of the customer when the customer takes over the bills, an image representing the transactional operation of the customer with the CCD camera or the like for the banknote input hopper 112, for example, a face image of the customer. Or a customer's hand gesture image, and stores it in the upper storage unit 206. Accordingly, it is possible to accurately identify and manage the customer who handles the bill from the customer's face image or the like.

In addition, in the case of the image information of the banknote when the banknote is identified, as described above, the characteristic of the image information of the banknote itself can be accurately grasped and stored in the upper storage unit 206 for management. As a result, not only the damage of the note number but also the characteristics of various handwritten or counterfeit bills can be accurately stored and managed, thereby making it possible to track the bills.

In addition, in the case of conveyance information of the banknote at the time of conveying a banknote, the characteristic of the image information of the banknote conveyance state can be grasped | ascertained exactly as described above, it can be stored in the upper memory | storage part 206, and can be managed. Thereby, storage destinations, such as a banknote coming out, an overlaid state, or a collection | recovery warehouse, become clear, the existence of a banknote can be memorize | stored correctly, and the tracking performance of a banknote can be improved.

Next, the storage content of the banknote accompanying data at the time of storing the data which accompanies a banknote in the identification memory | storage part 167 is demonstrated with reference to FIG.

The bank note data part includes the ID of the banknote updated each time the banknote passes through the banknote reading unit 160, the paper type of the banknote identified, the posture direction of the banknote identified, the result of the authenticity determination of the banknote, and the serial number printed on the banknote. The bill number read by letter recognition, the carrier ID to be described later when the bill is returned, the carrier ID to be described later, and the ID of the cash automatic transaction apparatus 100 such as an ATM, and the date and date of the transaction. And data selection information indicating types of transactions such as time, money transfer or withdrawal, transaction customer information such as customer account number or customer name or transaction number, and type of data for storing banknote images. These are used as specific information for retrieving the storage information of a banknote.

The image information part adds the banknote image image information according to the data size of the banknote to store, the image information of the note number part, and the above-mentioned preservation conditions.

If the above-mentioned carrier ID is the storage 173, it is either the ID number peculiar to the storage memorize | stored in the memory of the said storage 173, or the banknote input hopper 112 and the primary stacker 116.

The destination ID is either one of the banknote dispensing stacker 114 or the temporary storage 116, the deposit and withdrawal hopper, the stored storage 173, the storage 172, and the ejection forgetting collection 176.

11 shows an example of the format of the stored data stored in the identification storage unit 167. In the format of the stored data, a storage unit of the banknote bag data unit and a storage unit of the image information unit are provided for each banknote, one by one, and the identification result data for each banknote is stored therein.

These data are stored in association with each data of the bill data part and the image information part of the bill described in FIG. 11, and can be combined and checked later for bill billing and customer tracking.

Next, the relationship between the banknote image information which read the banknote by the scanner part 161, and the banknote conveyance part 150 in FIG. 12 is demonstrated.

In the bill conveyance part 150, the conveyance space | interval of the banknote continuously conveyed in the conveyance direction is the length which the banknote conveyed for the time required for switching of the switching gate 156, ie, the banknote movement distance at the time of gate switching, is moved. It is set longer than (LENG).

In the case of the banknote 516 of the conveyance state with the small amount of skews shown in the upper left of FIG. 12, the banknote space LEN1 whose conveyance direction space | interval of banknote being conveyed and banknote is shorter than banknote movement distance LENG at the time of gate switching. It is. In this case, since the time for the switching gate 156 to operate cannot be secured, the banknote conveying unit 150 fixes the switching gate 156 and treats these two banknotes as one bundle. The extracted data extracted at this time is read as the bill image information 526.

If the conveyance direction interval LEN2 with the banknote conveyed subsequently is larger than the said LENG, banknote data is isolate | separated. Even in the case of the banknote 517 of the conveyance amount with a large skew amount, two banknotes are handled as one bundle. Since there is no overlap about the banknote image at that time, you may divide into banknote image information 527A and 527B. When the banknote image is separated into two, there is no relation with the switching gate 156, so the identification banknote interval does not need to be measured perpendicular to the conveying direction as in LEN3, and the banknotes do not need to overlap.

When the banknote image is separated in this manner, the banknote data in the conveyance conditions such as the banknote 517 in the conveyed state with a large skew amount is two banknote images in one banknote data as shown in the banknote 2 of FIG. 13. Information 527A, 527B is to be stored. At this time, as long as the banknote reading unit 160 can determine the paper type for each bill, the paper type may be stored in the bill bag data section.

Next, the relationship between the identification memory | storage part 167 and banknote conveyance conditions is demonstrated with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

The identification storage unit 167 has a high cost because fast response is important, and is mounted in the banknote reading unit 160 separately from the upper storage unit 206.

The identification storage unit 167 is a means for temporarily storing the banknote image information. The stored banknote data is compressed and encrypted by the compression / encryption unit 168 after the banknote transfer is completed, and the upper storage unit 206 is stored. Is output.

In a normal transaction, abnormal banknotes are hardly generated, and reading of banknotes is completed normally. For this reason, the probability of requiring banknote image information on the whole banknote is low. As a result, the capacity of the identification storage unit 167 is sufficient if it is possible to save the number of sheets allowed by the banknote input hopper 112, for example, 20 pieces of image information smaller than 200 sheets.

However, under bad conditions, a bill image may be acquired for all 200 sheets. Due to this bad condition, setting the capacity of the identification storage unit 167 to 200 sheets is inefficient in product cost. Therefore, when the banknote data is memorize | stored in the identification memory | storage part 167 as a result of banknote conveyance, and the remaining capacity | capacitance of the identification memory | storage part 167 becomes small (step S501), the banknote conveyance part 150 will be a banknote input hopper 112. ) Is temporarily stopped (step S502). Even after the interruption, some of the paper passes through the banknote reading unit 160, so it is necessary to secure the storage capacity for the predetermined number of papers.

In this example, three pieces were used as one reference example of the predetermined number of pieces. After all of the banknotes have passed and read the banknote data, the banknote reading unit 160 compresses and encrypts the banknote data of the identification storage unit 167 in the compression / encryption unit 168, and the upper storage unit 206 Is transmitted, and the identification storage unit 167 is cleared (step S503). Subsequently, resuming of the banknote input hopper 112 is resumed and the banknote conveyance operation is continued (step S504).

By such an image information acquisition system, it is possible to cope with a smaller bill storage unit 167, thereby realizing a product having a high cost effect. In particular, it is effective when conveying a banknote in large quantities, such as a banknote straight in an apparatus.

These data are acquired by the banknote reading unit 160 and the banknote processing unit 150 for each banknote transaction, and are output to and accumulated in the upper storage unit 206 of the control unit 200.

The control unit 200 includes a retrieval function for retrieving the storage information of the banknote related to the specific information from at least one limited specific information relating to the storage information of the banknote stored in the upper storage unit 206, and the retrieval function. It is provided with the display function which makes the display operation part 120 as a display means display the memory information of the retrieved banknote.

Thereby, a banknote and a customer can be searched and specified from what contains at least one of one limited specific information, for example, the machine number printed on a banknote, and the number of the vault which stored the said banknote. The storages are the collections 172, the storages 173, and the extraction forget-me-not collections 176.

In addition, the control unit 200 stores an image representing a trading operation of a customer who makes a transaction, for example, an image of a camera 115 photographing a face image, a hand gesture image, and the like in association with the storage information of a banknote, The display function which displays the image which shows the transaction operation | movement of the customer which image | photographed the memory information of the banknote retrieved by the function by the camera 115 on the display operation part 120 is provided.

As a result, an image indicating a trading operation of the trader, for example, a face image and a hand gesture image, is displayed. Therefore, it is possible to confirm whether or not the customer is a bill trader himself, and at the same time, confirm that there is no suspicious operation. Moreover, if the whole banknote image is stored, more convincing information can be provided to the customer.

Next, the case of responding to a claim request from a customer during or immediately after the transaction of the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100 will be described with reference to FIGS. 15 to 20.

The camera button 126m is a button for shifting to the customer image display unit 123.

Each screen shown in FIGS. 15-20 is displayed on the display operating part 120 and the display of the data analyzer PC, and is used as follows.

For example, when a banknote trader receives a claim that a banknote withdrawn from the cash automatic transaction apparatus 100 is a counterfeit, using the banknote information stored in the cash automatic transaction apparatus 100, the banknote is really cash. It is checked whether the money is withdrawn from the automatic transaction apparatus 100 or whether the customer has brought in a false claim from the outside.

In addition, in the previous operation, it is checked whether or not the imported counterfeit bill is accepted by the cash automatic transaction apparatus 100. Since the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100 withdraws the withdrawal banknotes from the banknote reading unit 160 at the time of withdrawal and confirms that the banknotes are authentic, the forged banknotes are loaded into the storage 173, for example. If there is, the counterfeit bill is recovered to the collection | recovery store 172 and is not withdrawn. Therefore, when the carried-out banknote is excluded by the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100 at the time of a customer claim, it is determined that it is not withdrawn from the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100. FIG. However, there is a situation in which the customer cannot understand, and it is necessary to indicate that the bills are the same.

According to this embodiment, as a result of the customer's transaction, the time printed on the statement issued from the automatic cash transaction apparatus 100, or the transaction No is input according to the input screen of FIG. 15 displayed on the display operation unit 120. Then, from the information before and after the transaction, the transaction information corresponding to the transaction search result can be specified and displayed on the display operation unit 120, as shown by the bold solid line in FIG. In this search result, the presence or absence of data of the trader's face camera image, the trader's hand gesture camera image, and the banknote information is displayed.

When the corresponding transaction condition is selected and the decision button is pressed, as shown in Fig. 17, the screen is switched to the camera image display screen, whereby the camera image of the transaction can be reproduced. Here, the clerk can confirm whether or not the customer is the bill trader himself, and can also confirm that there is no suspicious operation at the same time.

In addition, when the banknote log button is pressed, the instrument number of the banknote withdrawn to the customer in the banknote transaction is displayed, and the combination with the banknote carried in can be performed, indicating that the customer is the same banknote. Moreover, if the whole banknote image is stored, more convincing information can be provided to the customer.

Next, the handling processing operation of the take-out forgetting paper money is demonstrated. When the bills engraved by the bill receipt coefficient and the withdrawal bills are not received even after a certain period of time, the withdrawal forgetting collection processing is performed. Since these banknotes are not processed in the deposit and withdrawal, and the trader is the owner, they are half-valued to the trader later.

In addition, in the take-out forgetting collection | recovery, a banknote is stored in a take-out forgetful collection | recovery warehouse regardless of the authenticity determination result of a banknote reading part. It is preferable that the said banknote is embossed in principle with a trader, and it is preferable to acquire the whole banknote image as a detailed record of banknote information. In the search screen of FIG. 19, when the ID of the drawout recall is inputted, a list of drawout recall collection transactions is displayed as shown in FIG. In addition, when a specific transaction is selected, a search screen of FIG. 20 is displayed, and respective banknote transaction information is displayed. Check the bill number of each bill in each transaction, and separate the bills in the cassette for each trader.

In addition, even if the serial number cannot be read due to any cause, the type and number of copies are confirmed using the whole bill image. By these, the banknote of the take-out forget-me-not collection 176 can be surely embossed to a trader. In addition, if the amount or amount of money is determined, it is possible to operate that the amount of money is not half the spot. In that case, the confirmation information of FIG. 18 is valid.

In addition, in China, when there are a lot of take-out forgettings, and the take-out forgetting collections 176 become full, the collection of take-out forgetting notes is carried out in the collections 172 afterwards, and the device is operated. There is a case to continue. Therefore, this operation is also applied to finding the take-out forgetting paper money from the collection | recovery warehouse 172.

Next, an example of the method of searching these image acquisition data and tracking a banknote based on the search result is shown.

For example, when the collection bank 172 is conveyed to the banknote arranging unit of the center 1, and the counterfeit bank note NC is found from the collection bank 172 (FIG. 1), a banknote is found from the counterfeit banknote discovery time. When tracing is tracked, the depositor of the banknote is specified by the banknote tracking screen (Fig. 19). The accountant who specifies the depositor, using the data analyzer PC connected to the host computer HC of the center 1, the period and gold type of the object to be searched, the serial number of the counterfeit bill found, and the found banknote 172. Enter the ID of. If the serial number portion of the counterfeit bill NC is broken or cannot be read due to contamination, it may be read out by a scanner or the like and retrieved from the similarity of the bill image.

When a search is started, banknote transaction information is sent to the host computer HC from the cash automatic transaction apparatus 100 in which the ID of the said collection | recovery warehouse 172 was mounted. The banknote transaction information may be an operation to be sent to the host computer HC at the time of collection to the collection warehouse 172 or after the end of a day's work. If the banknote transaction information is transmitted to the host computer HC in advance, the transfer of the banknote transaction information before retrieval can be completed before the retrieval. When the search is executed, the banknote transaction information is displayed in order from the banknote information in order of high agreement.

For example, if the serial numbers printed on the bank notes coincide with all numbers, they are displayed first, and then the banknote transaction information associated with the one-digit other bank numbers is sequentially displayed. Accordingly, even when the serial number is misrecognized when the serial number character is recognized, information corresponding to the search result can be displayed.

In this collection | recovery store 172, bills accommodated besides a deposit transaction may be accommodated. For example, although it is inherited from the storage in preparation for withdrawal, the banknote identification is incomplete and stored in the collection. In order to clarify the source of these banknotes, all the carrier and return destination information when the banknote was conveyed are also displayed.

In addition, if it was input from the depositor, the information which shows the banknote input hopper 112 is displayed by a conveyance source. If the conveyance source of the said banknote is storage 173, it can be judged that the counterfeit banknote was mixed with the banknote loaded by the accountant.

As a result of searching the banknote number of the found banknote, if the banknote number of the displayed transaction information matches, it can be confirmed that it is the transaction information of the found banknote.

When one of the search results is selected and a bill image is stored, a bill image of the bill data can be displayed. The accountant can combine information other than the serial number from the bill image, for example, wrinkled or contaminated state of the bill. Pressing the "All" key on the display operation portion projects the entire banknote, and pressing the "Enlarge" key enlarges the specific portion. In addition, the display of the front and back surfaces of a banknote image can be switched by pressing a "front and back" key. In addition, by displaying an image indicating the transaction operation of the customer taken by the camera, it is possible to confirm the appearance of the customer at the time of the transaction.

By confirming the search and the display of the search result, the clerk can know which transaction of the automated teller machine was introduced to the forged banknote. Further, the culprit can be specified in combination with the information of the host computer from the date and time information.

As described above, when the banknotes are accepted normally, the front image information of the banknotes is unnecessary, and thus, when the banknotes are detected, or when the abnormal banknotes such as contamination or damage of the banknotes are detected, or when the withdrawal forgetting banknotes are collected. The front side image information of a banknote is acquired, for example, when a conveyance change arises. Therefore, the whole image information 161a of a banknote is memorize | stored only at the time of a normal banknote or normal conveyance. In particular, the frequency of occurrence of abnormal banknotes or change of conveyances is small at the time of deposit and withdrawal transactions of banknotes, and most of the normal banknotes and normal conveyances.

As a result, the number of times of acquiring the total image information 161a of the banknote is small, so that the storage capacity can be minimized, thereby reducing the work cost at the time of transaction operation and achieving efficient operation. In addition, with the reduction of the amount of stored data, the high-speed response at the time of confirming the combination of the customer and the bill can be promoted, so that the time for waiting for the customer is shortened, and the serviceability to the customer is improved. In addition, the cost can be reduced simultaneously with the reduction of the amount of stored data.

In addition, in the data management at the time of a transaction, since the control part 200 has the control information which identifies and memorizes the transaction information regarding a transaction and the customer who performed the said transaction as identification object memory information, correspondence of a banknote and a customer is carried out. This is necessarily taken, so that bills and customers can be tracked.

In addition, even when a banknote is traded, even if a customer claim that a customer thinks suspiciously and asks a clerk to ask a grievance occurs, the image information of the handled banknote and the image representing the transaction operation of the customer, for example, a face image and a hand gesture image, etc. In the case of grievances such as money troubles due to the illusion of the customer and the inquiries of the malice, the clear image information becomes the proof data, so I can display it clearly and can convince a customer , You can solve the money trouble immediately. In particular, in the case of cheating, it is effective because the acquired image information becomes valuable evidence data for identifying the person.

In addition, for every banknote, a specific image can be left. That is, by leaving the image of the whole banknote or leaving the image of the part number, it is possible to identify and explain the banknote processed for the user in the image. In addition, when any conveyed medium is smaller than a predetermined size, it is determined that it is an unsuitable medium such as a foreign material and is not treated as a banknote of the above-described identification object, so that unnecessary data such as dust is not mixed in the search object. .

As mentioned above, although the Example of this invention was described, this invention is not limited to said embodiment, It is possible to implement in various aspects in the range which does not deviate from the summary.

For example, although the above-described embodiment shows an example of acquiring an image indicating a transaction operation of a customer, for example, a face image and a hand gesture image, and acquiring the trader's memory information, the present invention is not limited thereto. It may also be configured to acquire and store information such as a gate and an iris.
