Abstract

An inventory control system is implemented using a series of force sensors 3 to measure the weight in each of a series of bins 5 on a continuous basis. A sensor-based computer 6 translates the weight at each bin location into a part count and part number, and such data is transmitted to an inventory control system 7.
