Hereinafter, a mobile terminal related to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. The suffix "part" for the constituent elements used in the following description is to be given or mixed with consideration only for ease of specification, and does not have a meaning or role that distinguishes itself.

1 is a schematic diagram of a remote control system of an end device using a mobile terminal. 1, the remote control system of the end device 10 may include a developer terminal device 100, a user terminal device 300, a device connection server 300, and an end device 10. Here, the terminal device can be understood to include both a mobile terminal and a fixed terminal. The mobile terminal means a terminal device that can be easily carried by a user such as a mobile phone, a smart phone, a PDA, a PDP, an MP3 player, a navigation device, a notebook, and a tablet PC. It may be a general terminal device that is fixed and used at a specific position. Furthermore, the terminal device can be connected to a web page freely by providing a browser and capable of wired / wireless communication. For convenience of description, FIG. 1 depicts the developer terminal 100 as a fixed terminal and the user terminal 300 as a mobile terminal.

Hereinafter, referring to the flow charts of the process of providing the control program to the end device 10 and the process of remotely controlling the operation of the end device 10 for remote control of the end device 10, The detailed operation of the components will now be described in more detail.

2 is a flowchart of a process of providing a control program to an end device. 2, the user first logs in the device connection server 300 through the user terminal 300 (S201), registers the end device 10 to be remotely controlled with the device connection server 300 (S202). Specifically, the user can input the attribute and the address of the end device 10 through the user terminal device 300, thereby completing the registration of the end device 10.

Here, the attribute of the end device 10 may be related to the type of the end device 10 and the function supported by the end device 10, and the address may be an MAC (Internet Protocol) address of the end device 10, (Media Access Point) address. For example, if the end device 10 is a TV, functions such as power management (power on / off), reserved recording, channel control, and volume control functions supported by the TV, which is the end device 10, May be stored as an attribute of the end device 10.

In order for the user to log in to the device connection server 300 through the user terminal 300, the user must register (or join) the device connection server 300 in advance. However, since registration of a user to a normal server or registration of a member is already described, detailed description thereof will be omitted.

The developer can inquire the attribute and address of the end device 10 registered in the device connection server 300 through the developer terminal device 100 (S203). Thereafter, when the developer generates a control program suitable for the attribute of the end device 10 through the developer terminal device 100 (S204), the developer terminal device 100 transmits the control program generated by the address of the end device 10 (S205). The control program may be a base program for generating a web page for remotely controlling the operation of the end device 10. [ For example, when the end device 10 is a TV that supports functions such as power on / off, scheduled recording, channel control, volume control, etc., the control program may be for controlling at least one of the above- have.

The control program may be generated based on a Java-based Web API (Application Programming Interface). Specifically, the control program may be a JavaScript file with a .js extension.

If the control program is provided to the end device 10, the end device 10 can generate a web page indicating its own operation status by driving the control program (S206). If the control program is a Java-based JavaScript file, the end device 10 may interpret the control program and generate a web page indicating its own operation status.

For example, if the end device 10 is a TV and the control program received from the developer terminal device 100 relates to power management, channel control, volume control, and the like of the TV, A web page displaying information such as a status, a set channel information, a set volume level, and the like may be generated.

2, the control program is directly transferred from the developer terminal device 100 to the end device 10. However, the control program is not necessarily transmitted from the developer terminal device 100 to the end device 10 directly. The control program may be provided to the end device 10 via the device connection server 300. [ See FIG. 4 for a detailed description thereof.

4 is another flow chart of a process in which a control program is provided to an end device. 4, when a developer first generates a control program through the developer terminal device 100 (S401), the developer terminal device 100 can provide the generated control program to the device connection server 300 S402). Here, the file name of the control program may be set to include the type of the end device 10. [ For example, if the control program is for controlling the TV, the file name of the control program may include a string such as 'television', 'television' or 'TV', and if the control program is for controlling the refrigerator, The file name of the refrigerator may include preset acronyms such as 'refrigerator', 'refrigerator', or 'refrig'.

When the user is logged in through the user terminal device 300 and the registration of the end device 10 to be remotely controlled is completed in step S404, the device connection server 300 determines the type of the end device 10 May be controlled to be provided to the end device 10 (S405). For example, when the end device 10 is a TV, the device connection server 300 can control the control program including the TV to be provided in the file name. More specifically, if the file names of the plurality of control programs stored in the device connection server 300 are 'TV_Recording', 'TV_Powercontrol', and 'Radio_Powercontrol', the TV registered in the device connection server 300 through step S404 ' TV_Recoding 'and' TV_Powercontrol ', and provides the control program named' Radio_Powercontrol 'to the radio registered in the device connection server 300 through step S404.

If the control program is provided to the end device 10, the end device 10 can generate a web page for displaying its own operation status by driving the control program (S406). If the control program is a Java-based JavaScript file, the end device 10 may interpret the control program and generate a web page indicating its own operation status.

In the example of FIG. 4, the registration process of the control program (S401, S402) is preceded by the registration process (S403, S404) of the end device 10, ) Is not necessarily preceded by the registration process. The control program can be smoothly provided to the end device 10 even if the order of both is reversed.

Further, in the example of FIGS. 2 and 4, the end device 10 may provide attribute and address information to the device connection server 300 periodically (or at any interval). For example, if the network to which the end device 10 belongs is changed and the IP address of the end device 10 is changed, a new IP address is registered in the device connection server 300 so that the developer terminal device 100) or the user terminal device 300 can be attracted.

2 and 4, the device connection server 300 provides the control program to the end device 10, and the end device 10 generates the web page by interpreting the provided control program. However, Is not necessarily performed in the end device 10. According to another embodiment of the present invention, the device connection server 300 may interpreter a control program by itself and provide the generated web page to the end device 10.

This will be described in detail with reference to FIG.

5 is a flowchart illustrating a process of providing a web page to an end device. Since steps S501 to S504 of FIG. 5 correspond to steps S401 to S404 of FIG. 4, a detailed description thereof will be omitted. When the registration of the end device 10 to be remotely controlled through the user terminal device 300 is completed, the device connection server 300 determines whether the end device 10 is connected to the end device 10 The control program is extracted (S505), and a web page can be created based on the extracted control program (S506). Then, the device connection server 300 can control the web page to be operated in the end device 10 by providing a web page generated in the end device 10 (S507).

5, if the web page is generated directly from the device connection server 300 and the web page generated by the end device 10 is provided, the end device 10 may not operate the control program , The web page creation step (steps S206 and S406) of the end device 10 shown in FIG. 2 and FIG. 4 may be omitted.

Next, after the control program is provided to the end device 10, remotely controlling the operation of the end device 10 will be described with reference to the following drawings.

6 is a flowchart of a process of remotely controlling the operation of the end device. 6, when a user first logs in to the device connection server 300 through the user terminal 300 (S601), the device connection server 300 communicates with the end device 10 to register the registered end device 10 It can be determined whether the power switch 10 is in the power-on state (S602). The device connection server 300 controls the end device 10 to be powered on because the end device 10 can not accept the connection of the user terminal device 300 when the end device 10 is powered off (S603). ≪ / RTI > At the same time, the device connection server 300 can be set to update the address (e.g., the IP address) of the end device 10 (S604). Then, the device connection server 300 may provide the list of the end devices 10 (S 202 and S 404) that have been registered (S 605) to the user terminal 300. Here, the attribute and address of the end device 10 may be displayed in the end device 10 list. Displaying the attribute of the end device 10 is for informing what kind of the end device 10 can be controlled remotely. The display of the address can be performed by the user terminal device 300 and the end device 10 so that a communication channel between them can be formed.

Thereafter, when the user terminal device 300 requests a connection to the end device 10 to be remotely controlled (S606), the end device 10 transmits the web page generated as a result of the control program execution (refer to steps S206 and S406 ) Or the web page received from the device connection server 300 (refer to step S507) to the user terminal device 300 (S607).

The user can check the operation of the end device 10 and control the operation of the end device 10 through the web page output through the user terminal device 300. [ Specifically, the user terminal device 300 generates a control message based on user input, and transmits the generated control message to the end device 10 to remotely control the operation of the end device 10 (S608) .

The end device 10 receiving the control message from the user terminal device 300 can control its own operation based on the control message (S609). That is, the user can control the operation of the end device 10 by transmitting a control message directly to the end device 10 through the user terminal device 300 without passing through the predetermined server. The process of confirming the attribute or the address of the end device 10 (S601 to S605) shown in Fig. 6 is an optional step for connection to the end device 10, in which a control message is transmitted via the device connection server 300 But does not mean to be transmitted to the end device 10. If the user has already recognized the attribute and address of the end device 10, the process of confirming the attribute or address of the end device 10 (S601 and S605) is omitted through the user terminal device 300, And may request a connection to the end device 10.

Hereinafter, the present invention will be described in more detail based on the configurations of the device connection server 300 and the end device 10 shown in FIGS. 1 to 6. FIG.

7 is a block diagram of the device connection server. Referring to FIG. 7, the device connection server 300 may include a member information manager 310, a presence manager 320, and a profile manager 330. In some cases, the device connection server 300 may further include a control program managing unit 340 and a web page providing unit 350.

The member information management unit 310 stores personal information (including a member ID and a password) of a user who intends to access the device connection server 300 and processes the login process requested from the user terminal 300 . Since the user inputs the ID and the password to the predetermined server and logs in, the detailed description thereof will be omitted.

Upon reception of the registration request of the end device 10 from the user terminal 300, the presence management unit 320 may store the address of the end device 10 among the attributes and addresses of the end device 10. When the developer or the user accesses the device management server and requests the viewing of the address information of the end device 10 to be subjected to the remote control, the presence management unit 320 acquires the presence information of the developer terminal device 100 and the user terminal device 300, End address of the low-end device 10 can be provided.

For the identification convenience of the end device 10, the presence management unit 320 may assign a device ID to the end device 10. [ The device ID is assigned for identification of the end device 10. For preventing overlapping of the device IDs assigned to each of the plurality of end devices 10, the presence management unit 320 stores the UUID (Universal Unique Identifier) and a MAC address to generate a device ID.

Further, when the user logs in to the device connection server 300 through the user terminal 300, the presence management unit 320 can determine whether the end device 10 is already powered on or off. When the end device 10 is in the power off state, the end device 10 can not accept the connection of the user terminal device 300, and therefore the presence management server performs control for controlling the end device 10 to power on Signal to the end device 10. The end-

The profile management unit 330 may store an attribute of the end device 10 provided from the user terminal device 300. When the developer or the user accesses the end device 10 and requests the type of the end device 10 to be remotely controlled or the support function of the end device 10, 100 or the user terminal device 300. The end device 10 may be connected to the end device 10 via a network.

When the control program generated through the developer terminal device 100 is set to be provided to the end device 10 (see FIG. 4) or directly generated from the device connection server 300 and provided to the end device 10 5), the device connection server 300 may further include a control program management unit 340. [0033] FIG.

The control program management unit 340 can collect the control program received from the developer terminal device 100. [ The control program management unit 340 may control the control program to be transmitted to the end device 10 in accordance with the type of the end device 10 registered in the profile management unit 330. [ For example, when the TV is registered in the profile management unit 330, the control program management unit 340 can provide a control program including a character string of 'TV' in the file name of the control program to the TV registered in the profile management unit 330 have. The control program management unit 340 may inquire the address of the end device 10 registered in the profile management unit 330 through the presence management unit 320 and provide the control program to the end device 10.

As another example, when the device connection server 300 is set to generate a web page directly, the control program management unit 340 may provide a control program to the web page management unit. In providing the control program as a web page, the control unit 17 may collect a control program for controlling the operation of the same type device and provide the control program to the web page management unit. For example, when it is desired to create a web page for controlling the operation of the TV, the control program management unit 340 may extract a character string including 'TV' in the file name of the control program and provide the web page to the web page management unit.

The web page management unit may generate a web page for providing the control program to the end device 10 based on the control program received from the control program management unit 340. [ The web page management unit can generate the web page using the standardized standard so that the terminal apparatus having the internet browser can browse the web page without restriction. For example, the web page generator may generate a web page using XML (eXtensible Markup Language).

Specifically, the web page management unit can control creation of a web page in a hierarchical structure (or an XML node tree structure) using XML. For example, FIG. 8 is an exemplary diagram illustrating a hierarchical data structure using XML. 8A, the control unit 17 determines whether or not the device ID of the end device 10 registered through the user terminal device 300, the type of the end device 10, and the order of the functions supported by the end device 10 The XML schema having the data structure of FIG. In the example of FIG. 8A, recording the device ID is for specifying the end device 10 to which a web page is to be provided. The web page management unit can check the type and the device ID of the end device 10 registered in the profile management unit 330 to control the web page to provide a web page suitable for the type of the end device 10. [ FIG. 8B illustrates a hierarchical structure for a TV having a device ID of ID1, and FIG. 8C illustrates an XML document used to generate the hierarchical structure shown in FIG. 8B.

The web page management unit can confirm the address of the end device 10 corresponding to the device ID through the presence management unit 320 and provide the web page generated by the end device 10.

Next, the end device 10 shown in Figs. 1 to 6 will be described in detail.

9 is a block diagram of the end device. 9, the end device 10 may include a wireless communication unit 11, a storage unit 13, a state management unit 15, and a control unit 17.

The wireless communication unit 11 is for performing communication with the device connection server 300 and the terminal devices (the developer terminal device 100 and / or the user terminal device 300), and performs wireless communication with the above- A mobile communication technology or a wireless Internet communication technology may be used for the wireless communication unit 11. [ Specifically, the wireless communication unit 11 includes a mobile communication module to which a mobile communication technology such as CDMA, WCDMA, HSDPA, HSPA and LTE is applied, and a wireless Internet module to which a wireless Internet technology such as WiBro and WLAN can do. In receiving the control program or the web page from the device connection server 300, the wireless communication unit 11 can selectively receive only the type that matches the type of the end device 10.

For example, if the end device 10 is related to the TV, the control program received from the device connection server 300 may be a control program for controlling the operation of the TV, and the control program received from the device connection server 300 And may be a web page for controlling the operation of the TV.

The state management unit 15 may collect the operation state of the end device 10 and store it in the storage unit 13. [ The operating state of the end device 10 may include an on / off state of the end device 10, a setting state of functions provided by the end device 10, and the like. The operation state of the end device 10 collected by the state management unit 15 may be provided to the control unit 17 and used for generating a web page providing the operation state information of the end device 10. [ 9, the state management unit 15 is shown as being separate from the control unit 17. However, the state management unit 15 may be configured as a part of the control unit 17. [

When the control program is received through the wireless communication unit 11, the control unit 17 can generate a web page for displaying the operation state of the end device 10 by interpreting the received control program. The control unit 17 can generate a web page using the XML hierarchical structure (or XML node tree structure) described above with reference to FIG.

When the web page is created, the control unit 17 receives the operation status of the boot end device 10 by the status management unit 15, and controls the operation status of the end device 10 to be recorded on the web page. For example, if the end device 10 is a TV, the operating state information of the end device 10, such as the power on / off state of the TV, the set channel information, and the set volume level, It will be possible. If a web page other than the control program is received from the device connection server 300, the interpreter process in the control unit 17 may be omitted. In this case, the control unit 17 may record the operation state of the end device 10 on the web page while omitting the web page creation process.

When the user terminal 300 completes the connection to the wireless communication unit 11, the controller 17 can provide the web page reflecting the operation state of the end device 10 to the user terminal 300. [

When a control message for controlling the operation of the end device 10 is received from the user terminal 300, the controller 17 may control the operation of the end device 10 based on the control message. The control of the operation of the end device 10 by the user using the web page will be described in more detail with reference to FIG.

Figure 10 is an exemplary diagram illustrating the use of a web page to control remote device operation.

In the web page provided to the user terminal device 300, as in the example shown in Fig. 10A, in order for the user to adjust the operation of the remote device 100 (illustrated as adjusting the channel of the TV in Fig. 10A) When the left / right movement button is selected (1010, touch or click), the user terminal device 300 generates a control message for controlling the operation of the end device 10 and provides the generated control message to the end device 10 For example, adjusting the channel of the TV). When the wireless communication unit 11 receives the control message from the user terminal device 300, the control unit 17 can control the operation of the mobile terminal based on the control message. For example, if the control message is for adjusting the channel of the TV as shown in FIG. 10A, the control unit 17 may control the tuner (not shown) to change the TV channel.

When the control of the operation of the end device 10 according to the control message is completed, the control unit 17 can provide the web page reflecting the changed control state to the user terminal device 300 (see FIG. 10B). On the contrary, if the control of the operation of the end device 10 according to the control message fails, the control unit 17 provides the user terminal device 300 with a notification message 1110 informing that the operation of the end device 10 has failed to be controlled (See FIG. 11).

According to an embodiment of the present invention, the above-described method can be implemented as a code readable by a processor on a medium on which a program is recorded. Examples of the medium that can be read by the processor include ROM, RAM, CD-ROM, magnetic tape, floppy disk, optical data storage, etc., and may be implemented in the form of a carrier wave (e.g., transmission over the Internet) .

The device connection server 300 and the end device 10 described above can be applied to the configurations and methods of the embodiments described above in a limited manner, All or some of them may be selectively combined.
