  FIG. 3 shows a part related to the present invention in the portable information terminal according to the present embodiment. The portable information terminal 30 is a PDA, PHS, or mobile phone, and is a control unit that controls the entire apparatus, such as a CPU, a ROM that stores control programs and fixed data, a RAM that is a working storage area of the CPU, and the like. , A nonvolatile semiconductor memory such as an FRAM (registered trademark) that stores a Bluetooth device address (48-bit Bluetooth Device Address) of the portable information terminal, and a usage state of the portable information terminal, and a hard disk device For example, a storage memory 32, a key input unit 35 for setting the usage state, a display unit 33 for displaying the usage state, a speaker 34, a Bluetooth antenna 36, a Bluetooth communication unit 37, and for non-contact charging. Power receiving unit 40. The RFID tag 39 has a built-in radio communication chip of several millimeters square and an RFID antenna 38, is housed in a small capsule or thin card shape, and has a unique ID (64-bit UID).

  FIG. 4 is a diagram showing the relationship of the entire system according to the present embodiment. The portable information terminal (1) 30A and 30D, the portable information terminal (2) 30B and 30E, the portable information terminal (3) 30C and 30F in 0x ** format Bluetooth device address and RFID tag ID (UID) Have. The vehicle control device is 10A, the contactless charging device (contactless charger) (1) is 20A, the contactless charging device (contactless charger) (2) is 20B, the contactless charging device (contactless charger) (3 ) Has a 20C IPv4 format IP address (192.168.0.0/24: The actual usable range is 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254: The subnet is a private address of 255.255.255.0) The devices (contactless chargers) (1), (2), and (3) are connected to each other via a LAN (wired).

  9 and 10 are flowcharts showing the flow of processing of the vehicle control device 10. In FIG. 9, for example, when leaving the first station, the information table stored in the storage memory 12 is reset (step S01). FIG. 5 shows a state where the information table is reset. The portable information terminal number, Bluetooth device address, RFID tag ID (UID), charging flag, charger number, and charger IP address data are all reset.

Next, the LAN connection unit 16 and the Bluetooth communication unit 14 are activated (step S02).
When a user carrying the portable information terminal 30 gets on the vehicle in which the vehicle control device 10 is installed and enters an area where Bluetooth communication is possible, the Bluetooth communication unit 14 (master communication device) of the vehicle control device 10 is predetermined. The Bluetooth communication unit 37 (slave communication device) of the portable information terminal 30 responds to the inquiry for each time (step S04) (step S05).

  When the connection between Bluetooth is established in step S06 (Yes), the mutual packets are exchanged, and the Bluetooth device address, RFID tag ID, and usage state of the portable information terminal are transmitted to the vehicle control device 10 (step S07). Here, the usage state is a suffix of “I am talking / not talking” or “I am in manner mode / I am not in manner mode”.

  The portable information terminals (1) / (2) / (3) are respectively in a Bluetooth device address of 30A / 30B / 30C, an RFID tag ID of 30D / 30E / 30F, “calling” / << manner mode It is a usage status of "Not set" / "Not talking" or "Set to manner mode".

In the control unit 11, when the usage state of the portable information terminal 30 is “calling” or “not set to manner mode”, “prohibited”, “not calling” and “set to manner mode” are set. Since it functions to give an identifier (charge flag) of “permission”, the vehicle control device 10 is installed by the user who possesses the portable information terminal (1), (2), (3). When the vehicle is boarded, an information table as shown in FIG. 6 is registered (step S08).
Here, the Bluetooth device address is a device address conforming to IEEE 802, XX is UAP, YY is NAP, and the number is a 24-bit LAP. The RFID tag ID (UID) is a UID conforming to ISO15693, AA is “E0”, BB is IC Mfg.code, CC is TAG TYPE, and serial number is 40 bits.

FIG. 11 is a flowchart showing a process flow of the contactless charging apparatus 20. When leaving the first station, power supply to the power transmission unit 29 for contactless charging is turned off (step S41). Next, the RFID tag reader unit 26 and the LAN connection unit 28 are activated (step S42).
When the portable information terminal 30 comes close to the contactless charging device 20 installed on the hanging leather or in-arm table of the vehicle and reaches a position where contactless charging can be performed, radio wave transmission in the RFID band is performed every predetermined time (step S44). , S45), since the RFID tag of the portable information terminal 30 supplies and transmits power by electromagnetic induction or the like, the contactless charging device 20 receives the RFID tag ID (UID) of the portable information terminal 30 (step S46).

The self IP address and the received UID of the portable information terminal 30 are transmitted to the IP address of the vehicle control device 10 via the LAN connection unit 28 to make an inquiry (step S47).
In addition, the vehicle control device 10 performs the processing in FIG. 10 except for every predetermined time (when the white contact 1 in FIG. 6A is performed and communication with the contactless charging device 20 by the LAN is “inquiry”, FIG. In step S22, whether or not the inquiry UID exists in the information table is searched, and if it exists (Yes), the IP address of the contactless charging apparatus 20 that has made the inquiry is registered (step S22). S23, the information table as shown in FIG. 7), and the charging flag of “prohibited” or “permitted” registered in the information table of the contactless charging device 20 that has inquired via the LAN connection unit 28. It transmits to the IP address destination (step S24).

  If not applicable (N0), the mobile information terminal 30 (slave communication device) does not respond to an inquiry from the vehicle control device 10 (master communication device), and the usage state cannot be grasped and managed, so that “ A “prohibited” charging flag is transmitted to the IP address of the contactless charging apparatus 20 that has made an inquiry through the LAN connection unit 28 (step S25).

  Returning to FIG. 11, when the received charging flag is “permitted”, power is supplied to the power transmission unit 29, and when it is “prohibited”, power is not supplied to the power transmission unit 29 (steps S <b> 48, S <b> 49, S <b> 53). ). Only when the RFID tag ID (UID) is received in step S46 (can be interpreted that the portable information terminal 30 exists in the vicinity), a metal object such as a coin is generated by driving a power transmission coil and generating a magnetic field outside. No heat is generated even when approaching.

  Since the UID acquired in step S46 is associated with the manufacturer, model name, version, and the like of the portable information terminal device 30, the frequency of the alternating current flowing from this UID to the coil of the power transmission unit 29 is set to an appropriate value and is different. It is possible to perform contactless charging with high power transmission efficiency that is optimal for each portable information terminal device.

  Reading of the RFID tag reader unit 26 is performed at predetermined time intervals in steps S44, S45, and S46. If the UID cannot be read (the user has left the vehicle, moved to a position where contactless charging is not possible, or moved to another contactless charging device) (No), via the LAN connection unit 28 Then, only the self IP address is transmitted to the IP address of the vehicle control device 10 to notify that the UID cannot be read (step S52), and the power supply to the power transmission unit 29 is stopped (step S53).

  Further, the vehicle control device 10 performs the processing of FIG. 10 (outline 1 of FIG. 9) except for every predetermined time, and when communication with the non-contact charging device 20 by the LAN is “notified” (in step S21) ), Step S26 of FIG. 10 is selected. Here, by referring to the information table, the Bluetooth device address is acquired from the notified IP address of the contactless charging apparatus 20, and the portable information terminal 30 having the device address is called (step S26). In step S27, if there is a response (Yes), the user who has the portable information terminal 30 is in the vehicle, but the portable information terminal 30 is detached from the contactless charging device 20 and the contactless charging is performed. Since it can be interpreted that it has moved to a position where it cannot be performed, the IP address of the contactless charging apparatus 20 registered in the information table is deleted in step S28 as shown in FIG.

  If there is no response in step S27 (No), it can be interpreted that the user possessing the portable information terminal 30 has got off the vehicle, so that the process proceeds to step S29 and the corresponding part registered in the information table as shown in FIG. Is deleted.

  Returning to FIG. 11, when it is determined in step S43 that the terminal station has been reached, power supply to the power transmission unit 29 is turned off (step S50), and the RFID tag reader unit 26 and the LAN connection unit 28 are stopped (step S51). ), The process is terminated.

  FIG. 12 is a flowchart of portable information terminal device 30 showing only control in the present embodiment. In step S61, the Bluetooth communication unit 37 is activated. When the vehicle control device 10 makes an inquiry to the Bluetooth communication unit 37, the Bluetooth device address, RFID tag ID (UID), and usage state of the portable information terminal 30 are transmitted (steps S63 and S68). If the self-device address is called from the vehicle control device 10 to the Bluetooth communication unit 37, a response is made (steps S64 and S69). When the RFID band radio wave is received from the contactless charging apparatus 20 to the RFID tag 39, the RFID tag ID (UID) of the portable information terminal 30 is transmitted (steps S65 and S70).

  When the portable information terminal 30 "calls" or "releases the manner mode", the Bluetooth device address, RFID tag ID (UID), and usage state are transmitted to the vehicle control device 10 via the Bluetooth communication unit 37 ( Steps S66 and S71). When the charging flag of the corresponding information table is set to “prohibited”, the power supply to the power receiving unit 40 is stopped. In addition, the power receiving unit 40 detects a magnetic field due to electromagnetic induction from the non-contact charging device 20, and displays that charging is being performed on the display unit 33 when the charging state is reached (steps S72 and S73).

  As described above, FIG. 4 shows that a user having three portable information terminals (1), (2), and (3) gets on the vehicle in which the vehicle control device 10 is installed, and uses the Bluetooth communication function. The usage state of the portable information terminal 30 is grasped and managed. When portable information terminals (1), (2), (3) are in close proximity to each of three units of contactless charging devices (1), (2), (3) connected to vehicle control device 10 via LAN FIG. 4 shows whether power can be transmitted from the contactless charging device 20 to the portable information terminal 30 in the contactless charging method. The number of portable information terminals and the number of units of the contactless charging device are not limited to this.

  Moreover, since the charging system of the portable information terminal according to the present invention is used for a contactless charging application for a range of several mm to a maximum of several cm using electromagnetic induction, the RFID tag should adopt a passive type. Is preferred.

  Further, in the carried item confirmation system according to the present invention, a wireless communication function other than the Bluetooth (registered trademark) communication function may be realized by a wireless LAN (a wireless LAN MAC address is used as a Bluetooth device address). However, at present, the wireless LAN is used for an application that requires a higher transmission speed than Bluetooth and consumes a large amount of power. Therefore, it is preferable to employ a Bluetooth communication function.

  Next, a technique according to the second embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings.

  FIG. 13 is a block diagram showing a configuration example of the contactless charging apparatus 100 installed in a place where use of a portable information terminal is desired to be restricted, such as a suspended leather such as a train or a bus, an in-arm table, or a desk in a university attendance classroom. It is. A control unit 111 that controls the entire apparatus according to the present embodiment, which includes a CPU, a ROM that stores a control program, fixed data, and the like, and a semiconductor memory such as a RAM that is a working storage area of the CPU; A storage memory 112 including a non-volatile semiconductor memory such as a FRAM (registered trademark) and a hard disk device, a display unit 113 and a speaker 114 for monitoring a charging state, an input unit 115, a short-range wireless communication antenna 116, and A communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 117 and a power transmission unit 118 for contactless charging are configured.

  FIG. 14 shows only the part related to the present embodiment in the portable information terminal. The portable information terminal 120 is a PDA, PHS, mobile phone, and the like, and is a control unit that controls the entire apparatus, including a CPU, a ROM that stores control programs, fixed data, and the like, and a RAM that is a working storage area of the CPU A control unit 121 composed of a semiconductor memory such as FRAM (registered trademark), a storage memory 122 composed of a non-volatile semiconductor memory such as FRAM (registered trademark) and a hard disk device, a display unit 123 and a speaker 124 for monitoring the state of charge, a key The input unit 125 includes a short-range wireless communication antenna 126 and a communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 127, and a power receiving unit 128 for contactless charging.

  FIG. 15 is a diagram showing the relationship of the entire system according to the present embodiment. 13 is a contactless charging device (contactless charger) (1) 110A / (2) 110B / (3) 110C in the vicinity of the mobile information terminal (1) in a different usage state. 120A ・ (2) 120B ・ (3) 120C are close to each other, and a mutual network is established by the short-range wireless communication function (power transmission by electromagnetic induction between the contactless charging device (contactless charger) and the portable information terminal) Charging is controlled by the usage state of the terminal.

  FIG. 16 is a flowchart showing a process flow of the contactless charging apparatus (contactless charger) 10. When a charging start signal is input by the input unit 115 or the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 117 (when a train or bus starts / starts a class), power supply to the power transmission unit 118 is turned off (initial reset). (Step S101). Next, the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 117 is activated (from the sleep state) (step S102). In step S103, when a charging stop signal is input by the input unit 115 or the communication unit (short-distance wireless communication unit) 117 (at the end of the train or bus station / class), the power supply to the power transmission unit 118 is turned off. (Step S109), the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 117 is stopped (to the sleep state) (Step S110).

  When a user who has the portable information terminal 120 approaches the position where the contactless charging device (contactless charger) 110 is installed and enters an area where short-range wireless communication is possible, a communication unit (short-range wireless communication) Section) 117 in response to an inquiry (steps S104 and S105) at predetermined intervals by the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 127 of the portable information terminal 120, and acquires the usage state of the portable information terminal 120 (step S106). ). The usage status is “Talking / not talking”, “Set to manner mode / not set to manner mode”, “Latest time when talking / set to manner mode” This is the latest time suffix.

  In the control unit 111, when the terminal usage state is “calling” or “not set to the manner mode”, “charge prohibition”, “before the charging start signal arrives” In the case of << the call is stopped >> and << the manner mode is set >>, the determination of "charge permission" is performed (step S107).

When the communication unit (short-distance wireless communication unit) 127 of the portable information terminal 120 does not respond at step S106 (the terminal has moved to a distance where power transmission by electromagnetic induction is impossible) or when “charging is prohibited” at step S107 Then, power supply to the power transmission unit 118 is turned off (step S111).
When “charging is permitted” in step S107, power supply to the power transmission unit 118 is turned on (step S108).

  FIG. 17 is a flowchart showing a process flow of the portable information terminal device 20 showing only the control related to the present embodiment. In step S121, the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 127 is activated from the standby state. The power receiving unit 128 detects a magnetic field due to electromagnetic induction from the non-contact charging device 110, and when it is in a charged state, displays that charging is in progress on the display unit 123 (step S122). When there is an inquiry from the contactless charging device 110 to the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 127, the usage state of the portable information terminal 120 is transmitted (steps S124 and S125).

  If full charge is detected by the control unit 121 in step S123 and charging cancellation is instructed by the key input unit 125, the communication unit (short-range wireless communication unit) 127 is stopped in step S126, and the standby state is entered.

  The portable information terminals (1) 120A / (2) 120B / (3) 120C are respectively “calling” / “not set to manner mode” / “not calling” << in manner mode Since it is in the use state of “set”, << charge prohibition >> / << charge prohibition >> / << charge permission >> are the contactless charging devices (contactless chargers) (1) 110A / (2) 110B / (3 ) Controlled by 110C.

  Also, if you “call” or “cancellation of manner mode setting” from “charging allowed”, then “stop call” or “reset to manner mode” after a certain period of time ( Step S104 in FIG. 16) The charging is stopped, and the portable information terminal 120 cannot be charged again until a charging start signal comes in again.

  The two-way short-range wireless communication according to the present embodiment is a wireless PAN (Private Area Network) suitable for low power consumption / low cost / low transmission speed and short-range communication applications represented by ZigBee (registered trademark). ) Is preferred. ZigBee is a wireless communication technology whose specifications are currently being formulated, but is a wireless sensor network (for example, lighting remote control and security sensor) for measurement control purposes, and covers a range of several mm to several cm. It is not a communication technology. By using a wireless PAN standard technology (not existing) lower than ZigBee, it is possible to achieve even lower power consumption and cost.

When the power supply to the battery management (charge current control) function is turned off, the battery cannot be charged. This is because overcharging causes smoke / ignition / life reduction of the battery. Therefore, if “power off” is “a state in which no power is consumed”, charging is impossible.
Charging is possible if it is “a state in which power is not consumed except for the battery management function”. Since battery management is normally managed by the firmware of the mobile terminal, the latter state is the same as the “mobile terminal not talking (power-on standby state)” described.

  According to the present invention, a portable terminal including a contactless charging device that charges at least one of a portable terminal that is installed in a call suppression area and is not making a call and a portable terminal that is set to a manner mode. A charging system is provided. The short-range communication means may be a communication means capable of bidirectional communication.
