Abstract

Device for the free use of a motor vehicle,
marked by
An input terminal attached to a self-drive taxi from which the credit card data of a vehicle user and a reader from which the vehicle user's driving license data are readable and transferable to a dispatcher center,
A touch-screen menu system attached to the self-drive taxi, at which the vehicle functions required by the vehicle user and the end of use of the vehicle can be unlocked or the dispatcher center can be communicated,
A satellite connection between the self-service taxi and the dispatcher center, to which both the input terminal and the touch-screen menu system are connected by means of proprietary software.

Description

  • The inventive device for using a motor vehicle, with which the complexity of a rental car and a taxi to the character of a self-drive tax summarize, has the following features:
    • An input terminal attached to a self-drive taxi from which the credit card data of a vehicle user and a reader from which the vehicle user's driving license data are readable and transferable to a dispatcher center,
    • A touch-screen menu system attached to the self-drive taxi and to which the vehicle functions required by the vehicle user and the end of use of the vehicle can be unlocked or the dispatcher centers can be communicated,
    • - A wireless connection between the self-drive taxi and the dispatcher center, to which both the input terminal and the touch-screen menu system are connected by means of proprietary software.
  • It is provided in an advantageous manner that the doors of the vehicle after proper deregistration and lock automatically after leaving the vehicle.
  • The Costs of using the vehicle are dependent the travel time recorded by the dispatcher center a cashless billing system of the vehicle user can be charged.
  • In expedient embodiment of the invention Device is the level of the vehicle tank of the Dispatcher control panel permanently monitored and the vehicle if necessary, refillable by a mobile refueling service.
  • The Position of the self-drive taxi is in an advantageous way a satellite positioning system of the dispatcher headquarters permanently monitored, wherein the territorial use of the self-drive taxis by fixing the Coordinates in the satellite surveillance system is limited.
  • Parallel for position monitoring in the dispatcher center monitoring of special, technically relevant parameters every vehicle.
  • The Vehicle use is done in such a way that a vehicle user at an input terminal of any location in a metropolitan area or its environment parked vehicle with its credit card access to the vehicle procured and at a dispatcher center by means of his driver's license via a reader logs on to a touch-screen menu system for use of the vehicle, that the data read from the input terminal is transmitted by satellite passed to the dispatcher headquarters there evaluated and stored and so that the vehicle user is identified after that successful identity verification of the user provides access to the vehicle via satellite transmission is that the user on the in-vehicle touchscreen menu system by means of a special proprietary software needed by him Unlocks vehicle functions and uses the vehicle as intended, and that the vehicle user after completion of the vehicle over the touch screen menu system via satellite transmission the use of the vehicle as finished reported and thus the vehicle to rent again.
  • It should thus in particular to relieve all traffic zones and areas contributed in a big city and for every driver's license and credit card holders have a spontaneous flexible availability of one Vehicle with individual mobility gain allows become.
  • requirement for the door opening of the vehicle a valid credit card or other cashless Billing and identification system.
  • The Identification of the vehicle user is via the comparison his credit card and driver's license. The data of the Driver's license is copied with a reader and directly via satellite transmission in a dispatcher center (internal monitoring center without public Access) evaluated and archived.
  • After review of the user and complete the proprietary software a touch screen menu system installed in the vehicle will be all Vehicle functions unlocked.
  • The Termination of vehicle use is also via the satellite-controlled touchscreen menu system. The user electronically sends the vehicle to the dispatcher center for further use back.
  • To Leaving the vehicle, the car doors lock automatically.
  • about the Dispatcher Center clears all costs Vehicle costs as a minute unit price and are charged by the user to pay a cashless billing system.
  • Of the Tank contents of the vehicle are permanently monitored by the dispatcher center. If the level does not meet the specifications, the vehicle becomes locked for further use and from a mobile Tank service filled.
  • The The principle of self-drive is simple. The using customer needs not more than a valid credit or debit card and a free self-drive taxi. With a valid driving license The driver can the vehicle within a usage zone to a Use standard rate individually.
  • The Territorial use of self-drive taxis can be done by setting the Coordinates limited in the satellite monitoring system become. Approaching the user of the corresponding territorial Limitation, he is informed on the display.
  • The Parking the self-drive taxi may be appropriate to each of the traffic regulations Place in the usage zone. Billing is automatic from the dispatcher headquarters, as the vehicle at any time via GPS under Control is. Also, the refueling of the lost fuel takes place mobile and is not the responsibility of the customer.
  • The Self-drive taxi can take minutes, hours, days or weeks used without prior booking or availability check become. It is sufficient to use the credit card as a key to use to access a free self-drive taxi and then over the display query and satellite control in the vehicle the vehicle to drive and park until it finally returns anywhere in the demarcated usage zone and after the rules of public transport.
