The present invention relates to a device and method for processing banknotes, primarily for single-piece feed of banknotes or securities processing, counting, sorting and authentication.

In machines for processing of banknotes, as well as in machines for counting banknotes to input various commands and to select certain operating modes, as well as to visually display information about the status of a machine or information with recommendations to the user about the various actions are used, as is known, the display and keyboard input device or keyboard.

To improve the usability of such a machine, according to its ergonomics allow proposed in the application WO 99/09511 the input device, respectively, the device is a visual display of information (hereinafter referred to as the display). In this application is described a machine for processing banknotes, allowing to identify, verify, and/or counting banknotes. In this machine for the processing of banknotes is provided a touch screen, which consists of a screen and overlaid matrix of optically transparent switching elements. On the screen of the display shows the changing functions, select the user can touch the transparent switching elements. This display is also used to visual the display information about the status of a machine or information with recommendations to the user about the various actions. Such a system display management actions the user has a high flexibility of its application, because it's simple enough to reconfigure for the set, respectively changing requirements. However, despite the ability to fairly simple reconfiguration of the display control user actions using the touchscreen is known, for example, from the application WO 99/09511, the disadvantage of this system is that all information recommendations is issued to the user, as before, in the form of text messages. As a result, these machines being delivered for export must support the language corresponding to the country-importer. For this reason, in such machines it is impossible to provide a simple and based on intuitive perception of visually displayed information system on-screen control user actions.

Based on the foregoing, the present invention was based on the task of developing a machine for the processing of banknotes, to teach the use to which its system screen control user actions would allow to reproduce the necessary information in a clear, based on intuitive perception.

This task is solved according to the invention in a device for handling banknotes, primarily for postun the th supply of banknotes or securities processing their counting, sorting and authentication, allowing him to work in several operating modes. For such a device provides the ability to display individual operating modes on the display screen. The distinction proposed in the invention, the device known from WO 99/09511 is that the display is designed to display operating modes in the form of symbols (pictograms) with a choice of separate operating modes and set the configuration operating mode with variable settings using the input devices and/or functions of the device for handling banknotes.

Thus, according to the invention serves to visually display on the display screen changing function in the form of symbols (pictograms) with a choice of such individual functions using the input device.

The advantage associated with the representation of all issued to the user and guidelines in the form of symbols, is to provide the user with the necessary information in a clear and easy to visual perception, i.e. the symbols (icons or other similar graphical images), or the sequence of displayed graphics, consistently reflecting the execution of the processing stages of banknotes or the function "help", can lay down the about to understand at a glance on the screen represent such characters function. The choice of the appropriate functions can be performed on an intuitive level that eliminates the need for lengthy training of the user with the machine. Appropriate selection of characters, respectively, giving them a visual graphic content allows you to do they represent functions are easily understandable without additional text. Thereby almost completely eliminating the need for translation is displayed to the user and guidelines on the language of the country where you plan to use the machine for processing banknotes.

According to one of preferred embodiments of the invention the screen surface is designed for user interaction, it is proposed to divide into two parts. In one of these parts contains the function menu, used to select the General commands, and the other part contains a custom menu commands to select various operating modes of the device for handling banknotes.

Split screen surface designed to interact with the user function menu and the user menu allows to further simplify the operation of the machine for processing banknotes, because you can enter the commands are grouped in accordance with their intended purpose.

When creating the image is etenia was established, that should preferably be used to visually display the custom menu, and the command input function menu fully or partially implemented by using a separate input device (keyboard, mouse, etc). This display may be functionally associated with the keyboard, and the layout of this keyboard and/or activated keys functions can be represented by the appropriate field on the screen display.

Due to the above splitting the screen surface, intended for user interaction, at least the portion of the display screen that includes a function menu, and preferably touch, and this part of the screen can be divided into many segments, each of which is located on the bottom of the symbol is set in accordance with a particular feature. In this case, the symbols from the user menu can be selected using the touch elements of the function menu. Selected from the user menu symbols are preferably present in the form of inverted (inverted) image. When the input device is carried out in a transparent switching matrix located on top of the display screen. Such transparent switching matrix may take over an entire surface of the display screen that is allows you to enter specific to the custom menu commands directly by clicking on the transparent switching element, located above the symbol.

According to another preferred variant of the invention, in the touch display, you can embed a sensor for reading a fingerprint. The presence of such a sensor allows a simple way to provide the opportunity to work with a device for handling banknotes only authorized access of persons. This fingerprint is used for authentication (authentication), i.e. toskanamania fingerprint is compared to those stored in the device memory for banknote processing the fingerprints of persons who are authorized to work with this device. The coincidence askanianova fingerprint with one of the stored fingerprints permit operation of the machine for processing banknotes, otherwise access to the operation of the machine is completely blocked or granted access to perform only a limited set of functions.

In addition to simplifying the OSD control user actions through the string representation of a processing stages, respectively functions a simple screen management system user actions can also be obtained by providing in the car for banknote processing device, an audio input / output, which allows you to enter Golo the om functional or user commands and issue the "voiced" failure messages or alerts or status messages of the machine. Although in this embodiment, again the need to adapt machines to the language of the country in which they are to be used, however, and in this case provides the user a simple and easy to understand recommendations.

The object of the invention is also a method of processing banknotes primarily for single-piece feed of banknotes or securities processing, counting, sorting and authentication by means of a device for handling banknotes, providing the possibility of such processing in several operating modes for selection and display of operating modes includes a touch screen display. The distinction proposed in the invention, a method is known from WO 99/09511 is that the operational status display on the display in the form of symbols (pictograms)and the selection of the individual operating modes and configure operating modes with variable parameters is performed using the input devices and/or functions of the device for handling banknotes.

In special cases, the method selects a specific operating modes can be performed by touching the touch transparent switching matrix is divided into segments and placed on top of the display on the display screen of characters, the choice of the functions by pressing on transparent the th switch, located above the corresponding character.

In addition, the screen surface is designed for user interaction, can be divided into functional menus and custom menu using the function menu choose General commands, and using a custom menu, choose commands corresponding to various operating modes of the device for handling banknotes. In this case, accordingly, the performance of functional and user commands can be performed only using the portion of the display screen, which is the function menu.

Further, the ability to work with a device for handling banknotes can be provided only authorized access of persons to which the user's identity is his fingerprint to be registered using the touch display. In this case, it may be a challenge and a visual display of an individual for a particular user, the source menu on the results of identification of the user by his fingerprint. Thus, the invention allows the use of fingerprint for automatic selection of an individual for a specific user presets. This toskanamania imprint is alza is mapped to a specific user. On the basis of such conformity can be downloaded individually for such a user preset, which is reproduced in the form of the original menu. Obviously, these presets can be modified for subsequent work. The fingerprint can also be used to provide access to a limited set of functions and not to grant all users access to all machine functions for handling banknotes.

Proposed in the invention, the method also provides for the possibility of use of the speech I / o, designed for speech input functional or user commands and for audio output status messages device for handling banknotes.

Below the invention is described in more detail with reference to the accompanying drawings on which is shown:

figure 1 - simplified scheme proposed in the invention device,

figure 2 - touch display according to the invention,

figure 3 - touch display with several activated functions and

figure 4 diagram illustrating the implementation of the "help"function.

Figure 1 shows a simplified scheme proposed in the invention of machines for processing of banknotes, while the diagram shows only those items that are directly related to the object of the invention.

A machine for processing banknotes has a display 2, which is functionally connected to the remote control 21 control and which is also connected to the Central unit 1 control, which usually serves as a Central processing unit (CPU).

The Central control unit functionally connected with a read-only memory (ROM) 5, and a non-volatile memory 4, and also with elements 3 control used to control the individual functional blocks of the machines for processing banknotes.

In the nonvolatile memory 4 in addition to the program data stored graphic data on the basis of which the display as needed reproduced corresponding characters.

Module 2+21 readout/control may consist of suitable for visual display or playback of the character display and remote control, the remote control 21 control can be a keyboard, transparent switching matrix superimposed on the display screen 2, or other similar device.

Alternative or in addition to the units proposed in the invention, the device may also have a block of 6 speech I / o, with which the user can through the microphone to submit voice control commands or the commands menu. Accordingly, through the device of rechevok is output to the user can be "voiced" failure messages or alerts or status messages on the machine.

In the combined visual-audio control user actions can include the possibility of speech input at least a simple, functional commands, such as commands to move the cursor, and enter other commands using the touch switching elements on the display screen or by using individual buttons or keys, appropriately mapped to input commands.

Figure 2 shows not limit the invention to the example of the OSD menu is visible on the touch screen display 10. This display represents, in principle, the known device, a visual display, on the screen, which is superimposed transparent switching matrix. This switching matrix is divided into different segments, which use the reproducible on-screen display graphics information is set in accordance with certain features. Such a matching is a Central control unit in combination with stored in non-volatile memory data.

Visible on the touch screen display 10 menu preferably divided into function menu 12 and the custom menu 11. In the function menu 12 presents the common features that relate to the operation of the machine for the processing of banknotes, for example, start executing the function selected by the th virtual keypad 122 or stop the execution of the selected function using the virtual keys 121. In addition, the function menu is provided by the virtual keys to control the custom menu, for example, the virtual keys 123-126 cursor control, the virtual key 127 enter to move to the required level in the user menu and the virtual key 128 to select any options in the user menu. As presented in the drawing, the example also provides the virtual key 129 adjustments.

Shown in the figure 2 example, the OSD menu is visible on the display, in addition to the functional menu 12 has a custom menu 11. This custom menu, as in the function menu 12, some items or items presented in the form of visual symbols or icons that do not require knowledge of any specific language. Thus, in particular, item 14 refers to the symbol corresponding to the function sort, depending on the orientation of the front side. In such a sorting banknotes are sorted depending on the alignment of the existing images on them, respectively inscriptions.

The custom menu has a next symbol 13 corresponding to the sort function. In the sort mode, the position of the first banknote separated from the placed in the machine stack is defined as a reference position. The position of the first of the following bills, which is not sowade the reference position of the first received for sorting banknotes, accepted for the second reference position. Further, each of the remaining bills in accordance with its position enters the machine to process them in different foster trays.

Another sort mode, which is indicated in the user menu symbol 15 is the sorting of banknotes at par. When operating in this mode, sorting also use the principle of comparison with the first and second reference denominations of banknotes. Thus the value of the first banknote separated from the placed in the machine stack is taken as the first reference value, and the value of the first of the following bills, which does not coincide with the reference denomination value of the first received for sorting banknotes, is the second reference value.

Indicated by the position 18, the symbol refers to a function that defines the conditions of counting the number of banknotes. In this mode, only count the number of individual, separated from the placed in the machine bundle of bills without taking into account other sorting criteria, such as position or banknote. At the same time existing in the machine for processing banknotes stepholidine work, for example if there are two such topoligical in tandem (series) mode. When selecting the custom menu similar character relating to the mode of counting the number of banknotes, Navone this symbol appears, the image counter, counting the number of counted banknotes.

Marked position 17 character is used to select the operating mode of the machine for the processing of banknotes. Such operating modes are divided into three main classes. To the first class belongs the periodic mode, which involves counting the number of banknotes by denomination, enter the command "reject", as well as the issuance of the report with the results of the processing. The second class of operating modes is the so-called Deposit mode. In this mode provided for counting the number of banknotes by denomination, enter the command "reject", the calculation of the deficit/surplus, and the issuance of the report with the results of the processing. The third class operating modes is a mode of qualitative assessment of banknotes for their suitability for treatment, which consists in sorting the banknotes on the basis of qualitative criteria. Thus, separate classes combine many separate operating modes, which give the user the ability to set or select various configurations. Such possible functions on the configuration chosen from the appropriate menu, invoked by using the designated position 16 characters. Using the configuration menu you can set various changing parameters, for example to set for each batch, the toilet is utilized banknotes of one denomination threshold for evaluation based on qualitative indicators, and to choose for each batch of sorted banknotes of one denomination verifiable signs of authenticity. Also contained in menu 16 configuration operating modes can relate to the sorting of banknotes in position, value, quality criteria, configuring stepholidine or topoligical etc. in Addition, in the configuration menu you can also set General settings, for example to set the date/time to adjust the contrast of a reproduced on the image display, etc.

Figure 3 shows the OSD menu is visible on the screen of the touch screen, which almost corresponds to the display shown in figure 2. The main difference between shown in figure 3 and 2 display is in the display 3 sensor 130 for the fingerprint reader, which in this case is located in the lower right corner of the custom menu. This sensor is used to identify users on the prints of their fingers, which allows the results of such identification or to provide users with access or to deny access to the calling variable functions, respectively, to work with the machine for processing banknotes in General. In addition, the current virtual key function menu, which in this case are key in the management of the cursor, and enter key are reproduced in the form of an inverted (inverted) image. In addition, the paragraph 15 of the custom menu, which currently has the cursor is displayed on the background of the frame. Confirm the selection of this menu item, you can press the 127 input.

In the case when the transparent touch switching elements include not only the function menu 12, but all the rest of the display, i.e. when a transparent switching elements imposed on the user menu 11, a particular menu item, for example sorting mode 15 at face value, can also be directly selected by touching the corresponding symbol.

Similarly there is also the possibility of displaying on the display screen images of the individual keys, which is called when clicking on which functions can be represented in the form of corresponding printed on such key characters or can be reproduced in the corresponding fields on the display screen. In the latter case you can also simply change the assigned function keys and visually reflect this change by agreement of the characters that play in the fields on the screen display.

Figure 4 as the example shows two displayed images, which correspond to two first the m stages of execution of the function "help" and contain in a visual form recommendations to the user for Troubleshooting formed in the machine for processing banknotes congestion. First, as shown in figa, on the screen there is a symbol 140, indicating the formation of congestion, and simultaneously reproduce the symbol 141, which indicates to the user the need to open first the outer housing. On figb presents the next stage play on which the symbol 142 indicates to the user the need to extract from the machine jammed banknote. At the subsequent stages, which are not shown in figure 4, the user by replaying graphics are issued further guidance on the final elimination of the reasons of the failure.
