Abstract

A system and method for transmitting data between a mobile data communications device (MDC), carried by a vehicle, and a host system using a wireless communications network. The system supports a variety of data types.
If the MDC is within wireless coverage, the MDC's database is synchronized to that of the host system before submission of new data. When the MDC in not in wireless coverage, any new data submissions are queued for later transmission. All data entries are validated by the system and in the event of any errors the user is notified allowing for an opportunity to resubmit a transaction.

Claims (7)

1. A wireless mobile transportation communication system for transmitting data between a vehicle carried mobile system and a host system using a wireless communications network, wherein the host system comprises a host system database, and the mobile system comprises:
a mobile data communications device (MDC) with a mobile database and a keyboard data entry device for the manual entry of user data into the mobile database;
a global positioning system (GPS) receiver to determine geographic positional data of the vehicle and delivering the geographic positional data to the MDC
for entry into the mobile database;
means for powering the MDC and the GPS receiver from a power system of the vehicle; and means responsive to activation of the mobile system for establishing communication between the mobile and host systems over the communications network and for synchronizing the mobile and host system databases.
2. A system according to Claim 1 wherein the MDC is a personal digital assistant (PDA) with wireless communication capability.
3. A system according to Claim 1 or 2 wherein the MDC comprises means for validating data entered through the keyboard data entry device.
4. A system according to any one of Claims 1 through 3 wherein the mobile system comprises means for determining if the MDC is within the coverage range of the communications network, and means responsive to a determination that the MDC is not within the coverage range of the communications network for validating entered data locally and holding the validated data for later transmission.
5. A system according to Claim 4 wherein the mobile system comprises means for monitoring the presence of network coverage and responsive to the entry of the mobile system into coverage to establish communication with the host system and to synchronize the mobile and host system databases.
6. A method for transmitting data between a vehicle carried mobile system and a host system using a wireless communications network, wherein:
the host system comprises a host system database; and the mobile system comprises:
a mobile data communications device (MDC) with a mobile database and a keyboard data entry device for the manual entry of user data into the mobile database;
a global positioning system (GPS) receiver to determine geographic positional data of the vehicle and delivering the geographic positional data to the MDC for entry into the mobile database;
means for powering the MDC and the GPS receiver from a power system of the vehicle; and means responsive to activation of the mobile system for establishing communication between the mobile and host systems over the communications network and for synchronizing the mobile and host system databases, the method comprising:
performing a security login to the MDC;
establishing a wireless connection and initiating synchronization between the MDC and the host system in response to the MDC detecting that it is in an area of coverage of the wireless communications network;
synchronizing the databases of the MDC and the host system when a wireless connection is established;
requesting new data input for transmission to the host system;
receiving data for transmission from keyboard of the MDC and the GPS
receiver;
detecting whether wireless connection is still established;
transmitting data to the host system when the wireless connection is established;
storing data to the database of the MDC when the wireless connection is not established;
re-establishing a wireless connection following a period during which no connection is present; and retrieving stored data for transmission to the host system following re-establishment of said wireless connection.
7. A combination cable for providing power and serial communications to a GPS receiver from a PDA, the cable comprising first and second serial connectors for connection to respective serial ports on the PDA and the GPS receiver and a power connector for engaging a vehicle cigarette lighter socket.
