Abstract

Reservation ticket data for authorizing user's entry into a theater or a stadium is received from respective management center and stored as a barcode in the memory of user's mobile terminal. The barcode is retrieved, and read from the display of the terminal for allowing user to the theater or the stadium. An Independent claim is also included for entry authorization arrangement.

Description

The invention relates to an operating method of a mobile radio Terminal with a display unit of the dot matrix type and a corresponding mobile terminal. It continues to affect a closely related procedure for Er Allocation and control of an access authorization and a share order to carry out such a procedure.

In the course of the explosion of mobile communication cation are constantly becoming new, even at high speeds fields of application in everyday life and corresponding Services provided over the cellular networks. This develop lung receives additional impulses by linking the mo bilfunknetze with the Internet based on the Wireless Appli cation protocol (WAP) and in the future Universal Mobile Telecom communication system (UMTS).

For wide groups of users there is the possibility of a sponta short-term reservation of tickets for cultural or sporting events (cinema, concerts, soccer games etc.) particularly attractive by mobile phone. This attractiveness be - apart from lifestyle aspects - rests on the Independent order or reservation process both from Place of a ticket office as well as the availability of one wired telecommunications or data terminal.  

It has also made significant progress in recent years given online payment for goods or services, especially when realizing payment transactions for small amounts, including the price of tickets a lot are to be reckoned with. In the meantime, such payment transactions due to the WAP standard also reali via a mobile phone sierbar. The usual pick-up of pre-ordered by mobile phone or reserved tickets (or ski passes or similar access rights) is therefore for payment no longer absolutely necessary. It is therefore particularly from im Profession and / or users of the Mobile networks are increasingly perceived as annoying - especially since it is a lot is associated with waiting times.

The invention is therefore based on the object, technical before Suspensions to implement a further simplified ablau fes in the granting and control of access authorizations, especially for traffic or sports areas or buildings or Area for cultural and sporting events, using the To create opportunities for mobile radio technology.

This task is carried out according to a first, basic procedure aspect through an operating procedure with the characteristics of Claim 1 and according to a second, system-related procedure aspect by a method with the features of the claim 8 solved. A suitably designed mobile radio terminal has the features mentioned in claim 6 and a suitable Ge velvet arrangement the features of claim 12.

The invention includes the basic idea for which User of an order or Reservation service for tickets (or similar Access authorizations) there is no need to collect the admission ticket close. It further includes the thought that is for them  Order - and confirmation of the reservation - used mobil radio terminal also for documenting access rights use. Ultimately, it includes the thought of this in a particularly simple and efficient manner using egg ner automatic access control device to achieve the the access authorization manifested on the mobile radio terminal checked without the involvement of human operating personnel.

In one of the thoughts mentioned here of automatic access Erfin closes a relatively independent form of control on the other hand, the idea of a mobile terminal as to the "carrier" of an optically easy to check code make with an entitlement or ownership documented by its user or, if applicable, this user can be identified yourself. Belongs to this form still the thought, this has been practiced for a long time and too high detection speed and reliability principle of barcode (barcode) to use. This Gedan ken gain the greater practical importance, depending on the self possession and everyday availability of a Mobile phone terminal (cell phones) for the widest population will.

In a preferred embodiment of the mobile radio terminal or its mode of operation relating to the inventive concept provided that this received a via the air interface Numeric or corresponding data bit sequence in the on the Converts display unit to be displayed barcode. So it is a corresponding processing unit available, which also as a special type of display control unit can.

In a further alternative to the latter variant or also with this combinable version, the Mo bilfunk terminal the possibility of a barcode display for  a sequence of digits entered directly on it (or also letter ben or combined sequence of digits / letters). At the This version is largely one of the aforementioned versions corresponding display control unit available; only the An control in response to one via the air interface received or a manually entered data bit stream un differs.

In one because of the simple and inexpensive usability Existing barcode reader preferred version is Mobile terminal device for displaying a standard barcode how he has been labeling retail goods since is used for a long time. However, this version sets that The presence of a display unit with a sufficient type Number of pixels in the row or column direction ahead. A minimum resolution of 96 images currently appears for this score as required; However, a pixel number is cheaper of 256 or greater. Displays with such a resolution are included certain types of mobile terminals are already available and with the increasing use of mobile phones as internet Implement terminals step by step.

In an alternative embodiment, the mobile radio end device designed to display a reduced barcode which is suitable for all standard devices can be displayed. This variant requires the use of specially adapted readers and can only in the context of a specifically for the proposed here customized barcode system.

Within the framework of the overall system for generating Management and control of access authorizations is in one preferred execution the automatic conversion of one from egg ner order or reservation center to the customer average access codes in the mobile terminal for immediate Barcode display provided on the display unit. This  Action does not require any user activity and closes subjective sources of error practically. Its realization is however - in addition to the requirements on the end device side - to Creation of hardware and software implementation conditions tied in the central of the system operator.

In this respect, a variant is easier to implement with an assigned access on the part of the system operator code spoken or sent by text message and by manual operations on the user's cell phone converting to the barcode is effected. In the simplest case, this can be done via an acoustic output via the earpiece and connect of entering the number and / or letter combination with the keyboard of the cell phone happen. With a mobile terminal with a touch-sensitive display field (touch screen) the input would of course be done via this.

The preferred application of the invention is currently in the Be provision and "issue" of tickets for cinema screenings gen and other cultural events as well as sporting events seen. In addition to the increased convenience and the reduced The proposed solution offers time expenditure for the users basically the possibility of a total be accelerated access control and personnel savings in the Cash register and access control area. Other fields of application are basically the order and electronic realization of Access rights to sports facilities or facilities (fitness stu dios, ski lifts etc.) or to companies or state or municipal facilities that have certain access controls subject to fonts.

Advantages and advantages of the invention result in practice from the subclaims and the following description exercise of a preferred embodiment.  

A group of friends of one friend IT company is still eating together after the end of working hours went. During the meal someone makes the group Suggestion to watch a new film together. There who has received good reviews, a previous one appears Ordering a card is recommended. A member of the group dials an event information server via his WAP mobile phone vice and determines by entering the film title in which cinemas this is currently running. By clicking a link on the corresponding page of the program information board he a direct connection to the desired cinema.

After the connection with the cinema was established, he the interested party asks the availability of cards for the next performance. After the availability of the ge desired number of cards has been confirmed, he reserves the se stating a payment details and a personal Codes on the basis of which the cinema operator can Check the ability of the prospect and the price of the cards can be debited via the specified payment method. The Kun They are now informed that the reservation is OK and he receives an access code via text message. The conversation will be terminated.

After the solvency is checked or the debit is pre-processed is taken, the central computer of the cinema operator generates egg NEN access code in which the desired performance and the address number of reserved cards in one digit or data bit is encrypted. The access code is sent to the Special mobile terminal connected to the central computer Cinema operator - without the intervention of an employee - to the at personal conversation saved customer's mobile phone number transmit the text message marked as special. Based on the identification, the customer’s mobile phone recognizes that the message consists of an access code. Thereupon will  activated a display control unit in which an algorithm for Generation of a barcode from the data bit sequence implemented and the generated barcode is saved on the cell phone ready for retrieval chert.

After the film friends have reached the cinema, the Mobile phone owners can use a special menu function to save the saved barcode, and this appears on the display. The group goes to an automatic access control facility ("Lock") on which a barcode reader is installed. the It is with a special socket for putting on a cell phone equipped, which serves to shield external light despite the relatively low contrast ratio of the display to ensure a safe reading of the displayed barcode The access control device also has a Light barrier with which the number of people entering is counted becomes. After reading the bar shown on the phone display code is checked in a processing unit and in the Result the access control device to enter the Access code encrypted number of people released. The members of the group enter the cinema one after the other and thus have gained access without a printed entry need to pick up the card at a cash register and without having to enter had to be checked by personnel of the cinema operator.

A modification of the procedure described is that the entire request and reservation process between the In interested parties and the cinema operator based on Textnach set up via the Internet. This is also by means of an ent speaking designed website of the cinema operator in simple and possible with little operator input. Here you can the availability request within a single connection, the confirmation of the availability of cards, the transmission of payment method data and the transmission of the access code consequences.  

In addition, the implementation of the invention is not based on that Example described here limited, but also in one Variety of modifications possible, within the scope of professional Action.
