Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9910839A1] The invention is about an Intelligent Filing System that locates the wanted file in an unordered archive. This is achieved by a wireless receiver placed on each file. The receiver has Light Emitting Diode (LED) or small speaker which is activated when the request is transmitted by a transmitter via Radio Frequency (RF) or Infra Red (IR). The LED's flash (or the speaker starts beeping) and a number would appear on the receivers Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel. The received number indicates number of the department requesting that file. Upon the receipt of the signal, the receiver has the option to send a confirmation message to the transmitter confirming the receipt of the message. This idea may also be implented in the warehouses for spare parts, for books in the library or on any large number of distinct items that need to be retrieved.
