Description

  The present invention relates to a technology for realizing communication between a terminal and a device by associating a server between a mobile terminal and a stationary device via a communication network.

  In recent years, with the increase in mobile phones and tablet terminals that can be connected to the Internet, TV viewing styles in the living room have changed. Specifically, viewing while viewing a broadcast program on TV, searching for information related to the program on a mobile phone at hand, exchanging information about the contents of the TV program with an acquaintance, etc. The style is becoming common.

  It is considered that various applications and services in which the TV and the mobile terminal cooperate with each other in accordance with such a change in viewing style can contribute to improvement of user convenience.

  For example, an application in which the viewing state of a TV program is grasped by a server and content related to the program is presented to a mobile terminal at an appropriate timing can be considered, but such an application or service is realized. In order to proceed, it is important that the TV and the mobile terminal can be easily associated and linked without forcing the user to perform complicated operations.

  Here, as a method of associating a mobile terminal, a TV, and a server, for example, there is a method disclosed in Patent Document 1, and a system disclosed in Patent Document 1 includes a computer client corresponding to a TV, a portable controller ( The portable terminal) is connected to the control center (server), the positioning unit has the function of designating the spatial position and designating the floor, room or area in the residence, connected to the computer client and the portable controller, Determine the current location of the portable controller, control other system components in a particular neighborhood, select the output component via the GUI that appears on the portable controller, and associate the server, portable controller and TV It is a system to make it.

Is obtained by wireless communication, and is transmitted to the gateway server 104 together with the network address of the portable device 103.

  In the case of such a system, since it is necessary to have the same kind of proximity communication device in the mobile terminal and the device, there is a high possibility that the combination of the terminal and the device that can be associated is limited.

  In addition, as a device association method that does not use a proximity wireless device, for example, there is a method disclosed in Patent Document 3.

  In the system disclosed in Patent Document 3, when the information providing device 4 receives a request from a mobile phone, the information providing device 4 acquires transmission terminal location information provided by the mobile phone network and recognizes the reception time. The information providing device 4 linked with the management center device 3 is based on the transmitting terminal location information of the mobile phone that sent the request, and the owner of the mobile phone is one of the 100 public display terminals 1a, 1b,. Identify the terminal at which the station is installed because it is the display terminal that is closest to the location of the mobile phone, and which advertising program is displayed on the specific terminal shortly before the received time. It is identified whether it has been broadcast, and WWW document data associated with the specific program is delivered to the mobile phone as a response.

  Next, the operation of the tying system according to the first embodiment will be described.

  FIG. 2 shows an operation and a communication sequence of the tying system according to the first embodiment of the present invention.

  In this embodiment, it is assumed that a user (not shown) has a living device 106 and a bedroom device 107 installed in the user's home. Further, it is assumed that the user carries the mobile terminal 103 and is in a position geographically separated from the user's home.

  The mobile terminal 103 holds “MID1” as the terminal ID in the terminal ID storage unit 119, the living device 106 holds “TID1” as the device ID in the device ID storage unit 123, and the bedroom device 107 stores the device ID storage unit (FIG. It is assumed that “TID2” is held as a device ID in the device ID (not shown), and the other area device 109 holds “TID9” as a device ID in a device ID storage unit (not shown).

  The living device 106 holds “Kadoma City XX town XX number YY” in the location information holding unit 124 as address information, and the bedroom device 107 holds “ Osaka area Kadoma city XX town XX number YY ”, and other area device 109 holds“ Osaka city Osaka city AA number BB ”as address information in the position information holding unit (not shown). To do.

  The living device 106 includes a device ID “TID1”, address information “Kadoma City XX Town YX No. XX No. YY” in Osaka Prefecture, and address information for performing communication from the server 101 to the living device 106. Based on the address information, the server 101 converts the device information registration request into position information of the position where the living device 106 is installed, and stores it in the device information storage unit 110 together with the device ID (S201). In the case of this embodiment, “Kadoma City XX Town XX No. YY” in Osaka Prefecture is converted to “E135 ° 35′53.90: N34 ° 44′20.50” and held.

  The bedroom device 107 includes a device ID “TID2” and address information “Kadoma City XX town XX number YY” and address information for performing communication from the server 101 to the bedroom device 107 to the server 101. Based on the address information, the server 101 converts the device information registration request into position information of the position where the bedroom device 107 is installed, and stores it in the device information storage unit 110 together with the device ID (S202). In the case of this embodiment, “Kadoma City XX Town XX No. YY” in Osaka Prefecture is converted to “E135 ° 35′53.90: N34 ° 44′20.50” and held.

  The other area device 109 includes a device ID “TID9”, address information “AOS No. BB, Osaka Prefecture” and address information for communicating from the server 101 to the other area device 109 to the server 101. The information registration request is sent, and the server 101 converts the location information of the location where the other area device 109 is installed based on the address information, and stores it in the device information storage unit 110 together with the device ID (S203). In the case of this embodiment, “Osaka City Osaka City AA No. BB” is converted to “E135 ° 30′10.40: N34 ° 41′74.10” and held.

  Data in the device information storage unit 110 after storing the device information of the living device 106, the bedroom device 107, and the other area device 109 is shown in data entries 304, 305, and 306 in FIG.

  Next, the user moves from a geographically distant location to the user's home where the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 are installed (S204).

  Then, when the user operates the mobile terminal 103 to instruct the mobile terminal 103 to “pair to a nearby device” (S205), the mobile terminal 103 instructs the server 101 to use the device ID “MID1”. And a pairing processing request including the current position information “E135 ° 35′53.90: N34 ° 44′20.50” detected by the position information detection unit 120 (S206).

  Upon receiving the pairing processing request, the server 101 generates “SNO1” as the session number, generates pairing information together with the terminal ID “MID1” of the mobile terminal 103, and stores it in the pairing information storage unit 111 (S207).

  When the server 101 receives the pairing processing request, the candidate device determination unit 112 of the server 101 compares the position information included in the pairing processing request with the device position information 302 included in the device information storage unit 110 to determine the device A device with matching position information is identified as a candidate device (S208). As a result, pairing processing can be performed only for devices with the same position information, so the processing load can be reduced compared to the case where all devices registered in the server are targeted. In other words, it is possible to prevent a device that is not physically close to the user from being paired by mistake. Here, the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 are determined as candidate devices.

  In the process of specifying the candidate device performed by the candidate device determination unit 112 described above, a device having device position information in the vicinity of the position information included in the pairing process request may be specified as a candidate device. It is not limited to specifying only devices having device position information that completely matches the position information included in the request as candidate devices.

  The server 101 inquires of the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 determined as candidate devices about the device state, and the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 respond with the respective device states (S209). Here, it is assumed that both the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 are in a standby state (connected to an outlet but powered off).

  The server 101 generates an operation command based on the device status acquired from the candidate device (S210). By providing this operation command, it is possible to identify a device from a plurality of devices existing at the same device position, and to confirm that the device is in a position that can be operated by the user. Use avoidance can be realized.

  Furthermore, in order to generate an operation command according to the usage status of a plurality of devices at the time of pairing, for example, some of the devices are operating in a power-on state and other devices are in a standby state. If the power button is simply pressed for a short time, the power of the device will be turned on or off. Therefore, by pressing and holding the power button for 3 seconds, a common operation command is generated regardless of the power state. It is possible. Also, for example, if you are watching a broadcast program on a device, simply pressing a channel button other than the one you are viewing will switch the channel. Pairing processing can be performed without disturbing the user who is viewing on the device.

  Here, based on the fact that both the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 are in a standby state, the operation command is “press the power button while pressing the enter key on the remote control”.

  The server 101 sends a standby instruction including the operation command, the standby time, and the session number “SNO1” to the living device 106 and the bedroom device 107 (S211). Here, by setting the standby time, the standby state can be canceled without sending a standby cancellation instruction from the server 101 to the device that has not been paired after the standby time has elapsed. The amount of communication can be reduced. Here, it is assumed that “60 seconds” is designated as the standby time.

  The server 101 sends an operation command presentation request including the operation command and the session number “SNO1” to the mobile terminal 103 (S212).

  Upon receiving the operation command presentation request, the mobile terminal 103 presents an operation command using a display screen (configuration not shown) (S213). FIG. 5 shows an example when the operation command is presented on the screen.

  The user inputs an operation command to the living device 106 according to the screen display of the mobile terminal 103 (S214). Here, the user presses the power button while pressing the enter key on the remote control of the living device 106 with respect to the living device 106.

  The living device 106 determines whether the command input from the user matches the operation command included in the standby instruction (S215). As a result, it is possible to avoid erroneous pairing due to an appropriate operation performed by a person other than the user who desires pairing during the standby time. Here, it is assumed that an input that matches the operation command is made during the standby time.

  The living device 106 sends an operation command input notification including the session number “SNO1” and the device ID “TID1” to the server 101 (S216).

  Upon receiving the operation command input notification, the server 101 confirms the session number “SNO1” and the device ID “TID1” included in the operation command input notification, identifies the pairing target device as the living device 106, and sets the mobile terminal The terminal ID “MID1” of 103 and the device ID “TID1” of the living device are associated and stored as pairing information (S217). Here, the terminal ID “MID1” of the mobile terminal 103 and the device ID “TID1” of the living device 106 are stored in association with each other. Data in the pairing information storage unit 111 at this time is shown in a data entry 407 in FIG.

  The server 101 transmits a pairing destination notification including the session number “SNO1”, the device ID “TID1” of the living device 106, and the address information of the living device 106 to the mobile terminal 103 (S218). 103 transmits a pairing notification including the session number “SNO1”, the terminal ID “MID1” of the mobile terminal 103, and the address information of the mobile terminal 103 to the living device 106 (S219). Thereby, mutual communication between the paired mobile terminal 103 and the living device 106 can be performed.

  In this embodiment, the address information is used as the information indicating the position where the device exists. However, the present invention is not limited to this. The postal code is used as the device position information, or the device itself is equipped with a GPS function. Alternatively, GPS information may be acquired by wired connection or wireless connection with another device equipped with a GPS function.

  In the present embodiment, the device is a TV, but any device having a communication function may be used, and the present invention is not limited to this. For example, an HDD recorder, a PC, a music player, an air conditioner, and the like. May be.

  In this embodiment, the device is a stationary type, but it may be a portable type. In this case, the device position information held by the server is updated in real time or in a short period of time as the device moves. Has the same effect.

  Note that the operation command is “press the power button while pressing the remote control key”, but consider the status of each device (for example, an operation command that does not include channel button press or power button press while watching a program) ) And within a range that cannot be input by normal TV operations of other users during the standby period.

  Further, instead of inputting an operation command, the user may be requested to input a passphrase such as a numeric string or a character string. In this case, a “pairing pass input” menu may be provided on the TV side to input the pass phrase displayed on the mobile terminal.

  The position information detection unit 120 detects the longitude and latitude information by GPS, but is not limited thereto, and may be a zip code.

  The device determines whether the command input to the device matches the operation command. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the server side may determine. As a result, the processing load on the device can be reduced.

  Note that the mobile terminal may store the location information of the user's home in advance, and if it matches geographically with the user's home, automatic pairing may be performed by automatically transmitting a pairing processing request to the server.

  When presenting an operation command to the user on the mobile terminal, if there are communication means common to the mobile terminal and the TV (infrared, Bluetooth (registered trademark), wireless LAN, etc.), the mobile terminal is connected to the TV remote control. It may be possible to use as, and is not intended to limit this. In this case, it is only necessary to operate the TV with the mobile terminal at hand, and it is not necessary to switch to the TV remote control.

  In the present embodiment, the position of the mobile terminal is used as information for determining a candidate device for checking the device status or waiting for an operation command from the devices storing device information in the device information storage unit 110. Although information and device location information of devices are used, the information for selecting candidate devices is not necessarily limited to location information. For example, each device can be used as information associated with a device stored in the device information storage unit 110. The phone number of the mobile terminal owned by the owning user is stored, and when the pairing processing request is made (S206), the mobile terminal sends the mobile terminal's own phone number together and the server receives it from the mobile terminal. The candidate device may be determined by matching the phone number of the mobile terminal with the phone number associated with the device. Further, for example, as the information associated with the device to be stored in the device information storage unit 110, a user ID indicating each user who owns each device is stored, and is stored in the mobile terminal at the time of the pairing processing request (S206). The server may determine the candidate device by matching the user ID received from the mobile terminal with the user ID associated with the device by sending the user ID registered in advance.

  The associating method according to the present invention has an effect that communication can be performed by easily associating a device desired by a user with a mobile terminal, and various applications in which a mobile terminal, a device, and a server on the Internet cooperate. It is useful as a mobile terminal, a device, a server, and a method of associating them for realizing a service.
