Patent US10401471


Issued 2019-09-03

Object Tracking Method And System

A system for tracking at least one object configured to be transported by at least one vehicle may include at least one computer system. The at least one computer system may be configured to determine at least one location of the at least one vehicle and determine at least one location of the at least one object. The at least one computer system may be further configured to determine at least one location of at least one geofence adjacent the at least one vehicle based on the at least one location of the at least one vehicle. Also, the at least one computer system may be configured to determine whether the at least one object is located within the at least one geofence to determine whether a load of the at least one vehicle includes the at least one object.

3 Independent Claims

  • Independent Claim 1. A system for tracking objects, comprising: a computer system configured to: receive data from a reader via a communication network, the data including information from adevice associated with an objectdetermine a location of the object based on the data received from the readerdetermine a location of an object transport vehicle based on data received from a device associated with the object transport vehiclegenerate a geofence surrounding the determined location of the object transport vehicle, a size of the geofence being based on a loading area of the object transport vehicleand determine whether the object is within the geofence based on thedetermined location of the object and at least one parameter of the geofence to determine whether the object has been loaded on the object transport vehicle.

  • Independent Claim 19. A method for tracking an object configured to be transported by an object transport vehicle, the method comprising: receiving, using a computer system, data from a reader via a communication network, the data including information obtainedfrom a device associated with the objectdetermining, using the computer system, a location of the object based on the data received from the readerdetermining a location of the object transport vehicle based on data received from a deviceassociated with the object transport vehiclegenerating a geofence surrounding the determined location of the object transport vehicle, a size of the geofence being based on a loading area of the object transport vehicleand determining whether theobject is within the geofence based on the determined location of the object and at least one parameter of the geofence to determine whether the object has been loaded on the object transport vehicle.

  • Independent Claim 20. A non-transitory computer-readable medium containing instructions that, when executed by a computer, cause the computer to perform a method for tracking objects, the method comprising: receiving, using a computer system, data from a readervia a communication network, the data including information obtained from a device associated with the objectdetermining, using the computer system, a location of the object based on the data received from the readerdetermining a location of anobject transport vehicle based on data received from a device associated with the object transport vehiclegenerating a geofence surrounding the determined location of the object transport vehicle, a size of the geofence being based on a loading areaof the object transport vehicleand determining whether the object is within the geofence based on the determined location of the object and at least one parameter of the geofence to determine whether the object has been loaded on the object transportvehicle.
