Next, the operation of the mobile phone system with an automatic unspecified partner detection function according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described. In the present embodiment, a case in which an opponent of a competitive game is detected will be mainly described. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and various applications such as detection of a friend having the same purpose are possible.
[0014]
FIG. 4 shows a flow when the system user of the present invention registers (updates) various kinds of information using the user terminal 100 before starting the service. First, the user of the user terminal 100 accesses the user information server 200 and registers personal information and desired connection destination information (steps S1 to S3). At this time, the personal information to be registered and the desired connection destination information include information (address, telephone number, etc.) relating to the own terminal (user terminal 100) and information relating to the user himself (game level <advanced / intermediate / beginner>). , Message to the other party, etc.), conditions (information) regarding the connection destination, and the like. The user information server 200 that has received the information from the user terminal 100 confirms the registration execution with the user terminal 100, and then stores the information in the user information storage unit 203 (Steps S4 to S7).
[0015]
FIG. 5 shows a processing flow at the time of service start / end. The user of the user terminal 100 accesses the user information server 200 and instructs start or stop of the service (steps S11 to S13). The user information server 200 that has received the information from the user terminal 100 confirms the execution of the service start / stop by the user terminal 100, and then executes the service registration / stop of the user terminal (steps S14 to S17).
[0016]
FIG. 6 shows a flow of the process of detecting a connection desired partner of the user terminal 100 in the user information server 200. The user information server 200 requests the user terminals 100a, 100b, 100c,... To transmit position information (step S21), and acquires the position information of the user terminals 100a, 100b, 100c,.
[0017]
Note that the acquisition of the position information of the user terminals 100a, 100b, 100c,... Outputs a position information acquisition request from the user information server 200, and the user terminal 100 detects and transmits the position information in response to the acquisition request. In addition to the information, the user terminal 100 may automatically transmit the information at regular time intervals or when the location area is away from the transmitted location information. Alternatively, the area detection of the terminal may be performed by the base station that has performed the position registration by the PHS so that the user terminal 100 having no position information detecting function such as GPS can be used.
[0018]
Then, it is determined whether the user terminals 100 are present at a predetermined short distance from each other and there is a terminal that matches the connection desire of the user terminal 100 user (step S23). The personal information is transmitted after inquiring whether or not the transmitted personal information can be transmitted (steps S24 to S27). At this time, if the user terminal 100 has a short-range wireless communication unit that directly communicates with another user terminal, the user terminal 100 transmits short-range communication permission information necessary for short-range communication between the user terminals as personal information. Examples of short-range wireless communication include Bluetooth, an ad hoc mode in which terminals communicate with each other by wireless LAN, and a transceiver mode in which PHS terminals communicate directly with each other.
[0019]
FIG. 7 shows a processing flow after the user terminal 100 receives personal information from another user terminal 100X via the user information server 200. The user terminal 100 that has received the personal information of the other user terminal 100X from the user information server 200 (Step S31) accesses the other user terminal based on the information (Steps S32 to S33).
[0020]
This access method may be, for example, mail transmission, transmission, or the like, but in the present embodiment, the connection is established by short-range wireless communication that allows the transition to the competitive game.
[0021]
Further, after the battle, it is assumed that points can be obtained according to the result, and the points are stored in the user information server 200. The content can be downloaded from the user information server 200 according to the point (step S34 to step S36). The downloaded content increases the functions of the user terminal that has acquired the points.
[0022]
Conventional mobile phones without a GPS function had to contact via a site (time-limited matching service). For example,
・ I want to work part-time because I'm free now Around “○○ Station” “○” Time Gender “” Age “”
・ I want to meet because I'm a caster now. I want to meet around “○○ station” “○” Time Gender “” Age ”“ I want to play because I ’m caster now ”Around“ XX station ”“ ○ ”Time Gender“ ”Age“ ”Game”
In such a case, an e-mail address or the like is automatically delivered to the other party if there is a person who meets the business.
[0023]
If the phone with the GPS function becomes widespread, add software to the mobile phone according to the present invention,
・ Because I'm free, I want to do anything
If you only set the, it will always look for the other person.
[0024]
Others
・ Find a taxi sharing partner, etc.
・ I want them to be lined up at a ticket or line shop, etc., and to be lined up for a little or a fixed time,
・ Discovered samplers around the venue of marketing surveys for companies such as tasting and tasting,
-Mahjong masks no longer need to be found at Free Mahjongso, and you can play games using local rules.
It can also be used for
