Abstract

The method involves using radio telephones involving either the C or D1/D2 network. When a vehicle equipped with the system is missed an area call is made to an allocated number, e.g. by the police. The response signal from a unit in the vehicle is detected by the nearest base station to it. The base station relays the signal to the central station. The areas in which the vehicle is located are tracked and eventually the direction of travel of the vehicle is determined. Measures are taken to make the vehicle's receiver/transmitter unit difficult for thieves to locate and disable. USE/ADVANTAGE - Provides protection against car thieves at reduced cost compared to similar systems.

Description

Da gegenwärtig Diebstahlschutzmaßnahmen für PKW keine hundertprozentige Sicherheit garantieren, sowie die Aufklär ungsquote von Autodiebstählen zu gering ist,soll die hier beschriebene Methode, vor allem bei teueren Objekten Abhilfe schaffen. Since currently theft protection measures do not guarantee absolute safety for cars, as well as the Aufklär ungsquote auto theft is too low, the method described here, especially in expensive objects to help. Dadurch sollen die Kosten der Versicherungen ge senkt, die Quote an, in dieser Richtung gelagerter Eigentums delikte reduziert werden, als auch die Arbeit der Polizei- und Zolldienststellen erleichtert werden. This is to the cost of insurance ge lowers the rate of, offenses in this direction bearing property are reduced, as to facilitate the work of the police and customs services. Die Kosten für dieses System scheinen, im Vergleich zu oben genannten Punk ten, noch rentabel zu sein. The cost of this system seem th compared to above Punk to be more profitable.

Das Prinzip dieser Methode basiert auf der Technologie des des Funktelephones, je nach aktuell technisch/rechtlichen Stand der des C oder des D1/D2 Netzes. The principle of this method is based on the technology of the radio Telephones depending on technical / legal status of the C or the D1 / D2 network.

Nach dem unerklärten Verschwinden eines Kraftfahrzeuges, welches mit dieser Technik ausgestattet wurde, die hier be schrieben wird, und der folgendem Anzeige bei Polizei und Versicherung, wird durch den Anruf einer zugeteilten Nummer des jeweiligen Netzes, ein flächendeckendes Signal ausge sandt. After unexplained disappearance of a motor vehicle that has been equipped with this technology, which is inscribed be here, and the following display in the police and insurance, is the call an assigned number of the network, a nationwide signal out sandt. Der Anruf kann von der Polizei, der Versicherung oder aus Datenschutzgründen vorn Fahrzeughalter selbst getätigt werden und gleicht dem eines normalen Versuchs zur Kontakt aufnahme mit einem Funktelephonteilnehmer. The call can vehicle owners themselves are made by the police, insurance or for privacy front and resembles that of a normal attempt to contact reception with a Funktelephonteilnehmer. Nur jetzt wird im als gestohlen gemeldeten PKW durch den Empfang und der De codierung des Rufsignales, ein auf der Frequenz des Rück rufes abgesandtes Signal ausgelöst. Only now call on the frequency of the return signal is triggered envoy in stolen cars reported by the reception and the de-coding of the call signal. Dieses wird von der je weils nächsten Sende-/Empfangsstation des Telephonnetzes aufgenommen und an die Zentrale weitergeleitet. This is received by the next weils each transmitter / receiver station of the telephone network and forwarded to the central office. Dadurch läßt sich der ungefähre Aufenthaltkreis, der der Sende station, sowie die eventuelle Fortbewegungsrichtung fest stellen. Thus, the approximate stay circle station of the transmission, and the possible movement direction can realize.

Nun kann, im festgehaltenen Gebiet, ein mit Peilvorrich tungen ausgestattetes Fahrzeug, Hubschrauber oder ähnliches Gerät die Suche nach dem Diebesgut beginnen. can now, in the captured area, one equipped with Peilvorrich obligations vehicle, helicopter or similar device to start the search for the stolen goods. Dies geschieht durch Anpeilen des zuvor in Bereitschaft versetzten Rück rufsignales. This is done by targeting with the call signal previously displaced in readiness return.

An den Übergängen der Landesgrenzen könnten schwächere, stationäre oder örtlich flexible Sender die Nummern ver mißter Fahrzeuge absenden und eine Kontrolle verdächtiger PKW ermöglichen. weaker, stationary or locally flexible transmitter could send the numbers ver mißter vehicles and allow control of suspicious car at the junctions of national borders.

Um eine Auffindung und Entschärfung der Sende-/Empfangsan lage zu verhindern oder mit größtmöglichem zeitlichen und materiellem Aufwand zu gestatten, werden folgende Schritte benötigt To prevent or finding and defusing the transmitting / Empfangsan location permit with the greatest possible time and material costs, the following steps are needed

  • - Bau der technischen Einheit mit kleinstmöglichen Abmes sungen solutions Construction of the technical unit with the smallest possible dimen -
  • - eigene Stromversorgung durch Akkumulatoren für nötigen Verbrauch, vor allem bei der Sendeleistung - self-powered by batteries for necessary consumption, especially in the transmission power
  • - Pufferung des Netzes durch Anzapfen eines günstig liegen den Punktes des PKW-Bordnetzes - buffering the network by tapping a lie low the point of the car's electrical network
  • - individueller Einbau bei jedem Kraftfahrzeug,um ein schnel les Auffinden zu verhindern bzw. zu erschweren - individual installation in any vehicle to prevent a fast-les finding or aggravate
  • - wenn möglich Integration in elektronische Systeme des Pkw - if possible integration into electronic systems of the car
  • - nötige Antenne sollte ihren Platz in Stoßfängern, Spoilern, Tür-, Fenstergummis, Dachrecycling und oder ähnlichen finden - necessary antenna should find their place in bumpers, spoilers, door, window rubber, recycling and roof or similar
  • - Absenden eines kurzen, zum Empfang und Peilung längstnöti gen Signales, um ein Erfassen am Fahrzeug selbst zu verhin dern. - Submit a short, receiving and bearing längstnöti gen signal to countries to verhin the vehicle itself detecting.
