【0001】 [0001]

【発明の属する技術分野】この発明は、履物に関し、特に、子供、老人、病人などのように保護や介護を必要とする者が使用するのに適した履物に関する。 [Field of the Invention The present invention relates to footwear, in particular, children, the elderly, related to footwear that is suitable for use Those in need of protection and care, such as the sick.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】子供、老人、病人などが外出した場合に、連絡手段がなく、保護者または介護者が事故などの心配をしながら帰りを待つということがよくあるが、これを履物の側から解決しようとするものは、従来全くなかった。 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION children, the elderly, in the case where such a sick person has to go out, there is no contact means, guardian or caregiver, but there is often that the wait for the return while the worry of accidents, which the footwear side of intended to solve from was not conventional at all.

【0003】 [0003]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】上記事情に鑑み、この発明の目的は、着用者の現在地を離れた場所から検出することができる履物を提供することにある。 In view of the above circumstances [0005] An object of the present invention is to provide footwear that can be detected from a distance the current location of the wearer.

【0004】 [0004]

【課題を解決するための手段および発明の効果】この発明による履物は、履物本体と、履物本体に組み込まれて着用者の位置情報を基地局に与える位置確認用情報伝達手段とよりなるものである。 [Means for Solving the Problems and Effects of the Invention footwear according to the present invention, footwear body and, in more becomes as the position confirmation information transmission means for providing the positional information of the wearer is built into footwear body to the base station is there.

【0005】位置確認用情報伝達手段は、例えば、特定の周波数の電波を発信する小型発信機を有しており、この発信機を人工衛星や携帯電話用アンテナなどを利用して追尾することにより、離れた場所にある基地局で履物の位置を検出することができる。 [0005] The position confirmation information transmission means, for example, has a small transmitter that transmits radio waves of a specific frequency, by tracking the transmitter by using the artificial satellite and mobile phone antenna , it is possible to detect the position of the footwear in the base station at a remote location. 得られた位置は、基地局(履物着用者の自宅、学校、病院、その他の施設)に設置されたディスプレイの地図上に表示されることが好ましい。 The resulting position, the base station can be displayed on the (home of footwear wearer, schools, hospitals, other facilities) to the installed display map of the preferred.

【0006】この発明の履物によると、履物着用者の現在地を離れた場所から検出することができ、これにより、履物着用者が外出先から長時間帰宅しないときとか、行き先を告げずに外出したときとかであっても、心配しなくて済む。 [0006] According to the footwear of the present invention, it is possible to detect from a distance the current position of the footwear wearer, As a result, the Toka when the footwear wearer does not come home for a long time away from home, went out without telling the destination even Toka time, do not have to worry. また、履物は外出時には必ず着用するものであり、この履物に位置確認用情報伝達手段が組み込まれていることにより、位置を検出するために必要な位置確認用情報伝達手段を持たずに外出してしまうということがない。 Further, footwear is intended always to wear when going out, by the position confirmation information transmission means is incorporated in the footwear, to go out without a position confirmation information transmission means required for detecting the position there is no fact that would.

【0007】位置確認用情報伝達手段は、また、発信機および受信機の両方を備えており、受信機がGPS(=Gl [0007] The position confirmation information transmission means also comprises both a transmitter and receiver, the receiver GPS (= Gl
obal Positioning System)受信機とされることがある。 Sometimes are obal Positioning System) receiver.
GPS受信機は、複数の衛星からの電波を受信することにより、その位置を検出するもので、この場合、位置情報の誤差を小さくするために、基地局からの信号によって位置情報の誤差を補正するディファレンシャルGPS GPS receiver by receiving radio waves from a plurality of satellites, and detects the position, in this case, in order to reduce the error in the position information, corrects the error of the positional information by a signal from the base station the differential GPS
が採用されることが好ましい。 It is preferred that but be adopted.

【0008】位置確認用情報伝達手段は、また、履物本体の先端が向いている方角を示す方位センサおよび/または着地に伴う圧力増加の回数を数える歩数カウンターを備えていることがある。 [0008] The position confirmation information transmission means, also sometimes provided with a step counter for counting the number of pressure increase due to the azimuth sensor and / or landing indicating the direction in which the tip of the footwear body is facing.

【0009】方位センサにより、履物着用者の現在の進行方向が確認でき、また、歩数カウンタの歩数に履物着用者の平均歩幅を掛けることにより、履物着用者の出発地点からのおよその距離が確認できる。 [0009] by the direction sensor, the current direction of travel of the footwear wearer can be confirmed, also, by multiplying the average stride of footwear wearer to the number of steps of the step number counter, check the approximate distance from the starting point of footwear wearer it can. 位置確認用情報伝達手段は、方位センサおよび歩数カウンターの両方を備えている場合には、方位センサが示す方角を考慮して歩数を加算する演算器を備えていることが好ましい。 Position confirmation information transmitting unit, when provided with both a direction sensor and a step counter is preferably provided with a computing unit for adding the number of steps in view of the direction indicated by the azimuth sensor. この演算器によると、履物着用者の歩行距離をベクトル的に加算することができ、履物着用者の現在位置を求めることができる。 According to this calculator, it is possible to add a walking distance of footwear wearer vectorially, it is possible to determine the current position of the footwear wearer. 方位センサおよび/または歩数カウンターは、GPS受信機に代えて設けてもよく、また、GP Direction sensor and / or a step counter may be provided in place of the GPS receiver, also, GP
S受信機と併用してもよい。 It may be used in combination with S receiver. 履物着用者の歩行距離をベクトル的に加算することによる現在位置計算とGPSによる位置検出とを併用することにより、GPS検出の精度の粗さを補い、より精度の高い位置検出ができる。 The combined use of the position detection by the current position calculation and GPS by adding the walking distance footwear wearer vectorially compensate the accuracy of roughness of the GPS detection, it is more accurate position detection. なお、演算器は、履物側でなく、基地局側に設けてもよい。 The arithmetic unit is not footwear side, may be provided on the base station side.

【0010】位置確認用情報伝達手段は、発信機、受信機、歩数カウンタ、方位センサなどに電力を供給する電池を必要とするが、この電池への通電は、常時オンとなされてもよく、また、履物を着用したときのみ、例えば、履物本体の底部に若干の圧力がかけられたときにのみオンとなるようになされていてもよい。 [0010] The position confirmation information transmission means, transmitter, receiver, the number of steps the counter, requires a battery for supplying electric power such as the azimuth sensor, current to this cell may be made regularly on, Further, only when wearing the footwear, for example, it may be made so as to be turned on only when subjected a slight pressure on the bottom of the footwear itself. 履物本体の底部に圧力がかけられたときにのみオンとなるようにすると、着用時にのみ通電されることから、電池の消耗が少なく、情報伝達機能を長期間保持することができる。 When set to be turned on only when pressure is applied to the bottom of the footwear body, from being energized only when worn, it can be battery drain is small, to hold long-term information transfer function.
