Description

  • The 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 current Position of the mobile phone. These data are to be transmitted to the second telecommunication device become.
  • traditionally, can the transmission of the Positional data is achieved by, for example, equipped with a satellite navigation system, a person his current position 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 could the second telecommunication device store the voice transmission and later 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 consuming.
  • It 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 delays between sending the SMS message and the time that may occur the SMS message at the second telecommunication device available 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.
  • It 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 available 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.
  • Of the Invention is based on the object, an information transmission method propose where the current position of a mobile phone to another telecommunication device on particularly simple and cost-effective manner can be.
  • According to the invention this Task by the information transmission method specified in claim 1 solved, wherein advantageous embodiments of this method from the dependent claims result.
  • The inventive method is characterized in that the Provisioning system or the mobile phone in the selection of the second telecommunication device transmitted by the mobile phone Code for identification of the selected telecommunication device modified and transmits the modified code to the second telecommunication device, wherein the modified code overflows the data the current one Position of the mobile phone contains.
  • Advantageous in the method according to the invention is that one Code that transmits each time you dial a telecommunications device is, for information transmission is exploited. In particular, it is not necessary that the position data be personally transmitted by a user, furthermore, the transmission the position data synchronized with a call, so that for the mobile phone or the user of the mobile phone is recognizable that transmits the position data were and when they were transmitted were. Furthermore, the information transmission according to the inventive method very inexpensive.
  • According to one Embodiment of the method according to the invention the code is modified by the position data at the selection to be transmitted Code added become. traditionally, are in the selection of a telecommunications device by another telecommunication device, such as e.g. a mobile phone, as transmitter code (hereinafter referred to as ANI), the number of the calling telecommunication facility and as recipient code (Called DNIS) transmit the number of the called telecommunication device. Without disturbing the telecommunication connection, these transmitted codes can be modified become. For example, you can by "deselecting" the receiver code DNIS added the position data become. An advantage of this type of code modification is that no or only minor Hardware or software changes be made at the participating telecommunications facilities have to.
  • In a further embodiment of the method according to the invention is only then a communication link between the mobile phone and the second telecommunication device produced when the second Telecommunications equipment has accepted the dial. Further evaluates the second telecommunication device the transmitted, modified code before accepting the dial and takes the Dialing from the cellphone then either not on or takes the Dial to and ends the communication connection after a short time Time interval. Under a communication connection in the sense of Invention will provide a connection between two telecommunication devices understood after the acceptance of the dialing, and not the previous transmission the transmitter and / or receiver code.
  • Advantageous in this embodiment of the invention of the procedure is that the information transfer very inexpensive takes place since the transmission by means of the telecommunication facilities is free, if the telecom provider does not charge any fees, if any Telecommunication device is selected only, the selection of the However, other telecommunications equipment is not accepted and thus no communication connection in the one used here Sense is made. If dialing by the mobile phone a short communication link is made connecting proof of the mobile phone. As for this required connection time is very short, can also in this case the in the transmission of information costs incurred usual Procedures are reduced.
  • According to one further embodiment of the method according to the invention determines the second telecommunication device in the evaluation of the modified Codes that transmitted Position data and the code for identifying the mobile phone, i.e. the transmitter code ANI. The second telecommunication device then determines from the position data to be retransmitted additional information, adds the rückzuübertragende Additional information to be transmitted when selecting the mobile phone Add code and dial the mobile phone. In this case, the additional information to be returned is returned to the selected one Transfer mobile phone. The selected one Mobile phone can be retransmitted Evaluate additional information and either do not accept the selection or accept the call and the communication connection after a end short time interval. In this embodiment are advantageously the position data used to the mobile phone from the position data dependent Additional information in a particularly simple and cost-effective manner retransmit.
  • 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 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.
