Title:
METHOD FOR RETURNING PRODUCT IN OPEN VENDING MACHINE, AND DEVICE FOR SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2020/010828
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A method for returning a product in an open vending machine, and a device for the same. The method comprises: receiving weight change data generated by a weight sensor corresponding to a product display region and triggered by placement of a product to be returned in the product display region (S10); comparing the weight change data against pre-determined weight data of a product on display corresponding to the product display region (S20); and if the weight change data does not match the pre-determined weight data, determining that the product to be returned was placed at the wrong location, and generating prompt information (S30). The method for returning a product and the device for the same achieve automatic determination of whether a product returned by a user was placed at the wrong location in an open shopping environment, and further provide a prompt to return the misplaced product to a display region, such that products in a vending machine are placed according to a specific location arrangement in an intelligent manner, thereby providing convenience to consumers during shopping, improving the user experience, and solving the problem in which manual labor is required for arranging products in existing vending machines, causing a large waste of labor costs.
