The present invention relates to an information transmission method
a mobile phone dials another telecommunication device. at
the selection of this other, second telecommunication device
through the mobile phone is at least one code for identification
of the mobile telephone and / or the selected telecommunication device
to the selected
Telecommunications device via
to transmit a system for providing telecommunication connections. Further
the provisioning system or the mobile phone determines data about the
Position of the mobile phone. These data are to be transmitted to the second telecommunication device
can the transmission of the
Positional data is achieved by, for example,
equipped with a satellite navigation system, a person his
read from the display of the mobile phone, the second telecommunication device
calls and his position data of a person who made the call at the
second telecommunication device receives, notifies. Further
the second telecommunication device store the voice transmission
evaluate. The disadvantage of this transmission is that they are very
is expensive. The user of the mobile phone must read the position data
and submit yourself.
Furthermore, on the part of the second telecommunication device either
a person is required to take the data, or the
Evaluation of the stored language information is unreliable and
It was therefore proposed that the mobile phone,
this is his present
Position from the signals of the transmitting and receiving devices for mobile phones
determined this position data via Short Message Service (SMS)
transmitted to the second telecommunication device. This transmission procedure
However, has the disadvantage that significant
between sending the SMS message and the time that may occur
the SMS message at the second telecommunication device
is because the transmission
the SMS messages over
a router procedure takes place. The time delays can be 10 seconds,
but also up to 30 minutes or longer.
can therefore not be ensured that the mobile phone is still actually
sent to the via SMS message
Position is when the SMS message at the second telecommunication device
is. Furthermore, it is not recognizable from the side of the mobile phone whether
and when the SMS message is available to the recipient.
A synchronization of the SMS message with a call or a
Selection by the mobile phone is not possible. In addition, when sending
a SMS message relatively high cost.
WO 98/00988 describes a method for a telecommunication system for mobile telephones, in which position information for a mobile radio device is determined and made available on request to another device. The location is determined by satellite-based navigation system (GPS) or cell-based location determination method. Furthermore, in the EP 0 979 016 A1
describes an apparatus for use in a broadcast transmission system that provides location information about events in a geographic area. The device may receive this information and process it to display a map based on the provided location information. Furthermore, in the DE 196 40 735 A1
a telematics device for a motor vehicle having a car radio with an RDS module, a satellite receiving module and a radio telephone. With the help of this telematic device both general information about the car radio, as well as individual information can be received via the radiotelephone. Furthermore, data on the vehicle position, a desired destination or an emergency call can be sent to a center. Finally, in the EP 0 783 235 A2
a system and method for identifying the location of a mobile device is described. The system includes a switchboard for the mobile network and a switchboard for the public telephone network. To the public telephone network so-called location-based services (location based services) are connected. The mobile network includes a plurality of base stations, each covering a specific geographical area (cells). If a mobile phone is located in the cell of a base station, a call with this mobile phone is transmitted via this base station to the control center. From the information which base station transmits the conversation of a mobile phone, therefore, results in the cell in which the mobile phone is located. If a location-dependent service is selected by a mobile telephone, this recognizes the system and the so-called caller ID signal of the mobile telephone is changed so that the location of the switching base station is recognizable.

The current position of the mobile phone may determine the provisioning system from the signals transmitted by the transmitting and receiving devices for mobile phones. In this case, the provisioning system modifies the code transmitted by the mobile telephone when the second telecommunication device is selected such that the modified code contains the data about the current position of the mobile phone. Furthermore, the mobile telephone can also determine its current position on the signals transmitted or received by the transmitting and receiving devices for mobile telephones. In this case, the code to be transmitted is already modified by the mobile phone itself before dialing by the mobile phone. The transmission of the position data can then be made to any second telecommunication device or only to the provisioning system. In addition, the mobile telephone can also determine its current position by means of a satellite navigation system, eg by receiving GPS (Global Positioning System) signals.
The present invention will now be described in detail by means of exemplary embodiments
explained with reference to the figures.
1 shows codes that according to a first embodiment in the selection of the telecommunication device 3 through the mobile phone 1 be transferred, and
2 shows the codes, according to a second embodiment in the selection of the telecommunication device 3 through the mobile phone 1 be transmitted.
First, the in 1 illustrated first embodiment explained. The mobile phone 1 chooses the telecommunication device 3 by the telephone number of the telecommunication device 3 is entered. The connection between these two telecommunication facilities 1 and 3 is about a system 2 for providing telecommunication connections. When dialing the telecommunication device by the mobile phone 1 is conventionally a transmitter code ANI1, ie the telephone number of the caller by whom the mobile telephone 1 is identifiable, and a receiver code DNIS1, ie the telephone number of the called or the selected, transmitted. These codes C are first provided by the provisioning system 2 received and from this to the selected telecommunication device 3 forwarded. Normally, there is no change in the codes C1 in this forwarding.
Can the mobile phone 1 eg dialed with the number 111111 and the telecommunication device 3 No. 333333, the transmitted transmitter code is ANI1 111111 and the transmitted receiver code is DNIS1 333333. The telecommunication device 3 receives the data transmitted in the selection ANI1 (eg 111111) and DNIS1 (eg 333333) from the mobile phone 1 or the delivery system 2 ,
Furthermore, the provisioning system determines 2 Data P on the current position of the mobile phone 1 , This can be done for example by means of the signals provided by the intended for mobile phones transmitting and receiving devices 4 be broadcast or received. These signals can be used by the mobile phone 1 currently located at 60 m to 200 m accurately. The position data P is in the provisioning system 2 converted into a numeric code. The numeric code may, for example, the latitude and longitude of the position of the mobile phone 1 correspond. Further, the digit code could be associated with certain streets of a city and the associated street numbers. For example, the position data P may correspond to code 35738.
When dialing the telecommunications device 3 through the mobile phone 1 the code C1 transmitted in the selection is modified and the modified code C1 'is sent to the telecommunication device 3 transfer. The code modification according to the first embodiment of the provisioning system 2 performed. The modified code C1 'contains the data P on the current position of the mobile phone 1 , For example, the transmitter code ANI1 transmitted to the provisioning system may be modified to be that of the provisioning system 2 to the telecommunications device 3 transmitted transmitter code is composed of the previous transmitter code ANI1 and the position data P. In the simplest case, the position data P is added to the back of the transmitter code ANI1. In the codes used in the example given above, the modified code C1 'would be the new transmitter code 11111135738 and the unmodified receiver code 333333. According to the invention, the position data P is appended to the back of the receiver code DNIS1. In the case of the codes used in the example given above, in this case the modified code C1 'would be the unchanged transmitter code 111111 and the new receiver code would be 33333335738.
In this way, the data P on the current position of the mobile phone 1 very simple and inexpensive to the telecommunications device 3 be transmitted. It is not necessary that the telecommunication device 3 dialing from the mobile phone 1 accepts. Accordingly, no communication connection must be established in the sense used here. The telecommunication device 3 receives the modified code C1 ', which is transmitted when dialing. It can store the modified code C1 'and evaluate it so that the position data P (eg 35738) and the original transmitter code ANI1 (eg 111111) are separated from each other .. This can be done, for example, that the telecommunications device 3 the transmitter code ANI1 of the mobile phone 1 and thus removes it from the actually transmitted transmitter code ANI1 / P. Remain the position data P, which is the current position of the mobile phone 1 specify.
After the modified code C1 'to the telecommunication device 3 has been transferred, the connection can be interrupted, ie there is no paid communication link between the mobile phone 1 and the telecommunications device 3 produced.
In a further embodiment of the invention takes the telecommunications device 3 dialing from the mobile phone 1 but terminates the established communication connection again after a short time interval. Furthermore, the established communication link can also be from the mobile phone 1 be terminated after a short time interval. In this case, the length of the time interval can be chosen arbitrarily, as long as a cost reduction over conventional transmission methods can be achieved. For example, the length of the time interval may depend on the clock that the telecommunications provider bases its billing on. If this clock is, for example, 10 seconds, advantageously the time interval is selected shorter than 10 seconds, if the clock is one second, the communication connection can also be interrupted again after one second. However, the length of the time interval of the communication link does not have to be based on the charge clock, it can also be determined by other constraints.
In a further embodiment of the invention, the telecommunication device 3 from the transmitted to them position data P of the mobile phone 1 ascertain a supplementary information Z to be retransmitted. The rückzuübertragende additional information Z can then by means of the telecommunication device 3 the transmitter code ANI2 and / or the receiver code DNIS2, which when dialing the mobile phone 1 through the telecommunication device 3 be transferred. Advantageously, the additional information Z is added to the transmitter code ANI2, since in this case the evaluation in the mobile phone 1 is particularly easy. After that, the telecommunication device dials 3 the mobile phone 1 with, as receiver code DNIS2 and as transmitter code ANI2 / Z are transmitted.
2 shows the second embodiment of the invention. Also in this embodiment, the mobile phone dials 1 the telecommunication device 3 at. The delivery system 2 is also normally provided in this embodiment to provide a connection between the two telecommunication devices 1 and 3 However, it is not necessarily required in this embodiment. The data P on the current position of the mobile phone 1 be according to the second embodiment of the mobile phone 1 determined yourself. For example, in the mobile phone 1 a satellite navigation system 5 , such as a GPS receiver included. In this case, the satellite navigation unit transmits 5 the position data P to the mobile phone unit. If the mobile phone 1 the telecommunication device 3 For example, by dialing the corresponding receiver code dials DNIS1, the code C1 transmitted in the selection is from the mobile phone 1 modified so that the modified code C1 'the data P on the current position of the mobile phone 1 contains. For example, the position data P can be appended to the transmitter code ANI1 or advantageously to the receiver code DNIS1. This means that the delivery system 2 is not involved in the transmission of the position data P and to him no changes must be made. The further method steps in the reception of the modified code C1 'and optionally in the retransmission of additional information Z are identical to the method steps of the first exemplary embodiment and to the specific embodiments explained there.
