Description

  The present invention relates to an information processing system, information processing apparatus, and information processing method for information processing between a plurality of networks having different communication standards.

  Some gas stations use an information processing system that automatically measures the amount of refueling and enables settlement at an information processing terminal. In the information processing system, a network to which a measuring machine for controlling the amount of oil is connected and a network to which an external machine used for refueling condition input and fuel charge adjustment are connected are provided separately. Yes (see Patent Document 1). In recent years, some self-service gas stations, which have increased in Japan, use two types of networks.

  An example of an information processing system for a self-service gas station will be described. FIG. 12 is a block diagram illustrating a configuration example of a related information processing system.

  As shown in FIG. 12, the information processing system controls the external machine 120 for inputting the oil supply conditions including the information on the oil type and the oil supply amount, and the control signal to the weighing machine 60 according to the oil supply conditions from the external machine 120. And a weighing machine control device 150 for transmitting.

  The external device 120 is connected to the Ethernet (registered trademark) via the hub 90. The weighing machine control device 150 and the weighing machine 60 are connected to an SS (Service Station) -LAN (Local Area Network). SS-LAN is a communication network standard defined by the Petroleum Federation.

  A communication conversion device 140 is provided at a connection point between the Ethernet (registered trademark) and the SS-LAN. The communication conversion device 140 converts a signal received via one of the Ethernet (registered trademark) and SS-LAN networks so as to conform to the standard of the other network, and sends the converted signal to the other network.

  Further, a POS (Point Of Sales) terminal 100 and a router 80 are connected to the Ethernet (registered trademark) via a hub 90. The POS terminal 100 is an information processing apparatus for managing registered customer information, fuel sales volume, and the like. The router 80 relays communication with the outside of the gas station.

  If a centralized management server that manages all sales volumes of the same series of gas stations is provided, the POS terminal 100 can send customer usage records to the centralized management server via the router 80. In this case, even if the registered customer uses any of the plurality of gas stations in the same series, the customer's usage record is recorded in the central management server.

  The refueling fee may be settled using the prepaid card or the credit card at the external machine 120 or at the POS terminal 100 installed in the building of the gas station.

  Next, the refueling process in the information processing system shown in FIG. 12 will be described. The numbers of arrows shown in FIG. 12 indicate the signal transmission order.

  A user inserts a fueling nozzle into a fueling port of a car and operates an external machine 120 to input fueling conditions. The external machine 120 transmits a fuel supply request signal including information indicating that a fuel supply condition and a start of fuel supply are requested to the communication conversion device 140 via the Ethernet (registered trademark) (first arrow shown in the figure). When the communication conversion device 140 receives the refueling request signal from the external machine 120, the communication conversion device 140 converts the refueling request signal into a signal of the SS-LAN standard, and the converted refueling request signal via the SS-LAN. 150 (second arrow shown in the figure).

When receiving the refueling request signal from the communication conversion device 140, the weighing machine control device 150 displays a message requesting the start of refueling on the screen. The store clerk who sees the message checks the safety in the refueling operation with the monitoring camera, and confirms that there is no problem, operates the measuring machine control device 150 to input the refueling start instruction to notify the permission of refueling. When the refueling start instruction is input, the measuring machine control device 150 transmits a refueling permission signal including a refueling condition and information indicating that the refueling start is permitted to the weighing machine 60 (the third arrow shown in the figure). When receiving the refueling permission signal, the weighing machine 60 operates the fuel pump according to the refueling conditions included in the refueling permission signal.
JP 2003-182799 A

  In the above-described method, if the weighing machine control device 150 breaks down, even if other devices and networks are functioning normally, the refueling permission cannot be notified to the weighing machine 60 and refueling becomes impossible. Not only the refueling operation, but the weighing machine 60 itself cannot be controlled.

In addition to the program, the address of the own device is registered in the memory. There are two types of registered addresses for Ethernet (registered trademark) and SS-LAN.

  In the storage unit 44, the host address of each device in the sub-network to which the own device is connected is registered.

  The control unit 45 converts a signal received via one of the Ethernet (registered trademark) and SS-LAN networks so as to conform to the standard of the other network, and transmits the converted signal to the other network.

  In addition, when the control unit 45 receives the refueling request signal destined for the weighing machine control device 50, the control unit 45 checks the transmission source address of the refueling request signal, and sends it to all devices connected to the network address indicated by the transmission source address. In response, a refueling request signal is transmitted.

  FIG. 5 is a block diagram showing an example of the configuration of the weighing machine control device according to this embodiment. The weighing machine control device 50 includes a display / input unit 51, a communication unit 53, a storage unit 54, and a control unit 55. The control unit 55 is provided with a CPU (not shown) that executes processing according to a program and a memory (not shown) that stores the program. In addition to the program, the address of the own device is registered in the memory.

  When receiving the refueling request signal via the communication unit 53, the control unit 55 causes the display / input unit 51 to display a message indicating that refueling is to be started. When the clerk confirms the safety in the refueling operation and operates the display / input unit 51 to input the refueling start instruction to notify the refueling permission, the control unit 55 refills the refueling permission signal with the measuring device 60 as the destination. Is transmitted to the communication converter 40.

  FIG. 6 is a block diagram showing an example of the configuration of the POS terminal in this embodiment. The POS terminal 10 includes a display / input unit 11, a communication unit 13, a storage unit 14, and a control unit 15.

When the clerk confirms the safety in the refueling operation and operates the display / input unit 11 to input the refueling start instruction to notify the refueling permission, the control unit 15 refuels the refueling permission signal with the measuring device 60 as the destination. Is transmitted to the communication converter 40.

  Since processing such as management of customer usage results and fuel sales calculation is usually the same as that performed at a POS terminal in a store, detailed description of the operation is omitted.

  FIG. 7 is a block diagram showing a configuration example of the weighing machine in the present embodiment. The weighing machine 60 includes a communication unit 63, a storage unit 64, an oil supply pump 66, a flow meter 67, and a control unit 65.

In addition to the program, the address of the own device is registered in the memory. In addition, the address of the external machine 20 corresponding to the own device is registered.

  When receiving the refueling permission signal via the communication unit 63, the control unit 65 stores the refueling condition included in the refueling permission signal in the storage unit 64. Subsequently, the oil supply pump 66 of the oil type designated in the oil supply conditions is operated. When the operation of the oil supply pump 66 starts, the value of the flow meter 67 is monitored. When the amount of oil supply conditions stored in the storage unit 64 matches the value of the flow meter 67, the oil supply pump 66 is stopped. Thereafter, a refueling end signal indicating that refueling has ended is transmitted to the external machine 20 corresponding to the own device as a destination.

  The subsequent payment of the refueling fee may be performed by the external machine 20 using a prepaid card or a credit card, or may be performed by the POS terminal 10 installed in the building of the gas station. Since the method related to the adjustment of the refueling fee is not related to the feature of the present invention, the detailed description is omitted. Further, the display unit and the input unit have been described in the case of a display / input unit such as a flat panel in which these are combined, but the display unit and the input unit may be provided separately.

  In addition, when the store clerk detects a dangerous state such as gasoline overflowing from the fuel filler port due to the user's unfamiliar refueling operation, the store clerk usually operates the meter control device 50 to perform the refueling operation of the meter 60. It is possible to stop. Such an emergency stop operation may be performed by the POS terminal 10 and the external device 20.

  Next, the operation of the information processing system of this embodiment will be described. FIG. 8 is a schematic diagram for explaining the operation procedure of the information processing system of this embodiment, and FIG. 9 is a flowchart showing the operation procedure. The steps shown in FIG. 8 correspond to the flowchart of FIG.

When the user of the gas station operates the display / input unit 21 of the external machine 20 to input the oil supply condition including the information on the oil type and the amount of oil supply, the external machine 20 includes the information on the oil supply condition and the address. A refueling request signal is transmitted to the communication conversion device 40 via Ethernet (registered trademark) (step 101).

  The communication conversion device 40 transfers the refueling request signal received from the external device 20 to the external device 20, the weighing machine control device 50, and the POS terminal 10 via Ethernet (registered trademark) (step 102).

  When receiving the refueling request signal from the communication conversion device 40, the weighing machine control device 50 specifies the transmission source from the address. Then, a message indicating that there has been a refueling request from the external machine 20 indicated by the address is displayed on the display / input unit 51 (step 103). Similar to the weighing machine control device 50, the POS terminal 10 displays a refueling request message on the display / input unit 11, and the external device 20 displays a refueling request message on the display / input unit 21 (step 103).

  When the clerk at the gas station confirms the safety of the refueling operation with the monitoring camera, the display / input unit 51 of the weighing machine control device 50 is operated to input a refueling start instruction. When the refueling start instruction is input, the weighing machine control device 50 transmits a refueling permission signal with the weighing device 60 as the destination to the communication conversion device 40 (step 104).

  When the communication conversion device 40 receives the refueling permission signal from the weighing machine control device 50 via Ethernet (registered trademark), the communication conversion device 40 converts the refueling permission signal in accordance with the SS-LAN standard, and the converted refueling permission signal is converted to SS. -It transmits to the weighing machine 60 via LAN (step 105). When receiving the refueling permission signal from the weighing machine control device 50, the measuring machine 60 performs a refueling operation according to the refueling conditions included in the refueling permission signal (step 106).

  In the present embodiment, the communication conversion device 40 transfers the refueling request signal not only to the weighing machine control device 50 but also to the POS terminal 10 and the external machine 20 that is the transmission source of the refueling request signal. Therefore, the store clerk can input refueling permission in any of the weighing machine control device 50, the POS terminal 10, and the external device 20, and at least one of these devices is functioning normally. Then, the refueling permission can be notified to the weighing machine 60.

  Next, the operation of the information processing system according to the present embodiment when the weighing machine control device 50 is out of order will be described.

  FIG. 10 is a schematic diagram for explaining another operation example of the information processing system according to the present embodiment, and FIG. 11 is a flowchart showing a procedure of the operation example. Here, the weighing machine 60 is controlled by operating the POS terminal 10 instead of the weighing control device 50. In addition, portions that overlap the operations described with reference to FIGS. 8 and 9 are omitted.

  In step 103 shown in FIG. 9, here, since the measuring machine control device 50 is out of order, nothing is displayed even if the refueling request signal is received. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 11, the POS terminal 10 displays a message to the effect that there has been a refueling request on the display / input unit 11, and the external device 20 displays a message for refueling request to the display / input unit 21. (Step 103 ').

  When the clerk at the gas station confirms the safety of the refueling operation with the monitoring camera, the display / input unit 11 of the POS terminal 10 is operated to input a refueling start instruction. When an instruction to start refueling is input, the POS terminal 10 transmits a refueling permission signal destined for the weighing machine 60 to the communication conversion device 40 (step 104 ').

  Thus, even if the weighing machine control device 50 is out of order, it is possible to operate the other information terminal to notify the weighing machine 60 of the refueling permission.

  Since there are many stores that have introduced POS systems, not only gas stations, but also stores that sell products using POS terminals, control devices that control controlled devices such as air conditioning equipment and lighting equipment in the stores Can be operated at the POS terminal when the device breaks down. If a POS terminal is installed on the control device side, there is also an advantage that it is easy for a store clerk to operate.

  On the other hand, there are stores that do not have a POS system. In this case, the communication conversion device 40 may not transfer the refueling request signal received from the external device 20 to the POS terminal 10.

  In the above-described embodiment, the oil type and the oil supply amount are input as the oil supply conditions. However, an oil supply fee may be input instead of the oil supply amount. In this case, the amount that can be refueled by the external machine 20 is calculated from the input refueling fee.

  Further, the transfer destination address of the refueling request signal may be registered in advance in the storage unit 44 of the communication conversion device 40. In this case, the refueling request signal is not transmitted to the router 80 that is not involved in the control of the weighing machine 60 among the devices connected to the Ethernet (registered trademark). Therefore, useless communication in the network can be reduced and the load on the network can be reduced.

  When a plurality of external devices 20 are provided, the communication conversion device 40 identifies the external device 20 that is the transmission source from the address included in the refueling request signal, and sets the external device as the transfer destination of the refueling request signal. 20 may be only the external machine 20 identified by the address. In this case, a refueling request signal is returned to the external machine 20 to which the user has input the refueling conditions, and a message indicating that only the external machine 20 among the plurality of external machines 20 is requested to start refueling is displayed. Is done. Therefore, the store clerk immediately knows which external machine 20 should input the refueling start instruction.

  Further, a password for authenticating the operation of the store clerk may be registered in advance in a memory (not shown) in the control unit 25 of the external device 20. When the refueling start instruction is input, the control unit 25 of the external machine 20 displays a request for password input. When a password is input, it is checked whether or not the input password matches a previously registered password. If these passwords match, a refueling permission signal is transmitted to the communication conversion device 40. On the other hand, if these passwords do not match, the refueling permission signal is not transmitted to the communication conversion device 40. In this case, it is possible to prevent the user himself / herself from inputting a refueling start instruction.

  According to the present invention, even if a trouble occurs due to a failure or the like in the control device connected to the first network, the control target device connected to the second network is controlled. It becomes possible to control the control target apparatus with another connected apparatus.

  In addition, when the control device and the control target device are connected to the second network, communication between these devices is easy. However, in order to perform data communication with the control device from the first network side, polling or selecting is required. Had to be done. On the other hand, in the present invention, since the control device is provided on the first network side, unnecessary polling can be omitted, and the load on the network can be reduced.
