A second embodiment of the present invention will be described. The second embodiment of the present invention is that the product ID read control unit 11 of the mobile device 2 includes an RFID writer (not shown) having a function of writing information to the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41. This is different from the first embodiment. In addition, the product additional information DB 62 stores a product ID, date and time, and product additional information in association with each other. Since other operations of the circuit and the like are the same as those in the first embodiment, the same reference numerals as those in FIGS. 1, 2 and 3 are used, and description thereof is omitted.

  The server unit 65 of the traceability system 64 causes a computer to execute an information extraction process for extracting information from each database and a communication process for connecting to a communication network, and a product ID, which is information for specifying a product in the communication process. In the information extraction process, the product information indicated by the product ID received in the communication process is extracted from each database, and the information extracted in the information extraction process is transmitted to the mobile machine 2 in the communication process. Each database stores product information in association with the date / time and the product ID, causes the date / time and product ID to be received from the mobile device 2 in the communication process, and received in the communication process in the information extraction process. Equipped with a product information providing program that extracts product information associated with an ID from a database

  The operation of the second embodiment of the present invention will be described. When the user of the mobile device 2 turns on the power of the mobile device 2, the mobile device 2 connects to the server connected to the mobile communication network 50 via the base station 51 or the like according to a predetermined procedure, and the mobile communication network 50 user authentications are performed.

  The user of the mobile device 2 brings the mobile device 2 close to the RFID tag 41 attached to the product 40, operates the key operation unit 28, and stores the product ID stored in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 in the RFID reader 43. Let me read. Since the operation from when the mobile device 2 reads the product ID until the production distribution history information is displayed on the display unit 29 is the same as the operation in the first embodiment, the description is omitted.

  When the user of the mobile device 2 operates the key operation unit 28 of the mobile device 2 to request transmission of a product ID and product additional information, the mobile device 2 has a built-in clock (not shown) (time measuring means). Is sent to the traceability system 64 via the mobile communication network 50 and the communication network 70. In the mobile communication network 50, the base station 51 receives the date / time information, the product ID, and the information requesting transmission of the product additional information, and traceability is provided via the exchange 53, the information transfer system 54, the gateway 55, and the communication network 70. The system 64 transmits date / time information, product ID, and information requesting transmission of product additional information.

  In the traceability system 64, the server unit 65 receives the date / time information, the product ID, and the information requesting transmission of the product additional information, and stores the product additional information associated with the date / time indicated by the date / time information and the product ID. Extracted from the product additional information DB. Here, the product additional information extracted by the server unit 65 indicates that, for example, the date and time information is December, “It is delicious to warm and eat this season. ", 3 months have passed since production. The delicious cooking method at this time is ...", "The expiration date is about to expire", and so on. The server unit 65 of the traceability system 64 processes the extracted product additional information into a format that can be displayed by the display unit 29 of the mobile device 2 and transmits it to the mobile device 2 via the communication network 70 and the mobile communication network 50. . In the mobile communication network 50, the gateway 55 receives the product additional information and outputs it to the information transfer system 54. The information transfer system 54 corresponds to the communication protocol used for connection between the base station 51 and the mobile device 2. The merchandise additional information is processed, for example, packetized, and output to the exchange 53. The exchange 53 transmits the merchandise additional information to the mobile station 2 via the base station 51.

  In the mobile device 2, the wireless transmission / reception unit 23 receives the product additional information via the antenna 22 and causes the display unit 29 to display the product additional information according to the control of the control unit 21. Then, the control unit 21 sends the product additional information to the RFID writer (not shown) (information writing unit) via the interface circuit 31 and the control unit 33 of the product ID reading control unit 11 and the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41. Remember me. When the user causes the mobile device 2 to read the product additional information stored in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41, the control unit 21 causes the display unit 29 to display the product additional information.

  As described above, according to this embodiment, the mobile device 2 receives the product additional information corresponding to the date and time and stores it in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41. When it is desired to refer to the product, the product additional information can be referred to without transmitting / receiving information to / from the traceability system 64.

  For example, when a retail store stores information indicating that the product is a genuine product in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 attached to a product such as a luxury brand product, and the user resells the product at an auction or the like, for example. In addition, information indicating that the mobile device 2 is operated and resold may be added to the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 and stored. Then, the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 can indicate that it is not a stolen item, a fake item, a diversion item, or the like.

  Further, the user operates the key operation unit 28 to cause the RFID writer to erase the information stored in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 via the control unit 21, the interface circuit 31, and the control unit 33. Also good. Then, since the other person cannot receive the information stored in the production distribution history information DB 61 and the product additional information DB 62 or use the traceability system 64, the traceability system 64 receives the user's personal information and information. Even if the history is stored, the personal information of the user and the information reception history stored in the traceability system 64 can be prevented from being known to others.

  The mobile device 2 has a position detection function (position detection means) for detecting the position of the mobile device 2 using GPS (Global Positioning System) or using the position information of the connected base station 51. The traceability system 64 may include, for example, a database that stores tourism information of each region. Further, an RFID tag 41 including an IC chip 42 storing information indicating that it is a travel ticket may be attached to the travel ticket. Then, when the user causes the mobile device 2 to read the information stored in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41 and transmits the information read by the mobile device 2 and the position information of the mobile device 2 to the traceability system 64. The server unit 65 of the traceability system 64 extracts tourism information based on the location of the mobile device 2 from the database and transmits it to the mobile device 2. The mobile device 2 stores the received tourism information in the IC chip 42 of the RFID tag 41. Then, the user can receive the tourist information according to the current position.
