Hereinafter, a case where a missing object is a child is exemplarily described, but the present invention is not limited thereto.

1 is a system configuration diagram of a beacon-based missing object search system according to an exemplary embodiment.

Referring to FIG. 1, a beacon-based missing object search system 100 according to an exemplary embodiment includes a beacon generator 110 and two or more terminals 120 and a server 130. The two or more terminals are respectively connected to the server 130 via a wired or wireless network.

The server 130 has a hardware configuration similar to that of a typical Web server, a web application server, or a WAP server. However, as described in detail below with reference to FIG. 4, a software module, which is implemented in any language such as C, C ++, Java, PHP, .Net, Python, or Ruby, (Module).

Such a database may include a plurality of databases classified according to a data structure, a management method, and the like.

In some cases, the database may include a database management system (DBMS), which is software that allows the user to add, modify, delete, etc. information or data.

In addition, the server 130 may store and manage content, various information, and data in a database. Here, the database may be implemented inside or outside the server 130.

The server 130 may use a server program that is variously provided according to an operating system such as DOS, Windows, Linux, UNIX, or Macintosh to general server hardware Typical examples include a Web site used in a Windows environment, an Internet Information Server (IIS), Apache, Nginx, and Light HTTP used in a UNIX environment.

Meanwhile, the terminal 120 may include a general PC such as a general desktop or a notebook computer, and may include a mobile terminal such as a smart phone, a tablet PC, a PDA (Personal Digital Assistants), and a mobile communication terminal. But should be broadly interpreted as any electronic device capable of communicating with the server 130. [

In addition, the terminal 120 may be a part of a post equipment installed in various places such as a park, a plaza, a department store, a beach, and the like. The post equipment, which is the terminal 120, can receive the beacon signal and send it to the central control center through the wired / wireless network 140. The post equipment, which is the terminal 120, is the same in terms of performing a missing object search function with the terminal 120 described above or described later.

The network 140 as a network connecting the terminal 120 and the server 130 may be a closed network such as a LAN (Local Area Network) or a WAN (Wide Area Network), but may be an open network Lt; / RTI > Herein, the Internet includes various services existing in the upper layer of the TCP / IP protocol such as HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Telnet, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Domain Name System (DNS), Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (NFS), and Network Information Service (NIS), which are used in the Internet.

In addition, when the terminal 120 includes a mobile terminal such as a smart phone, a tablet PC, a PDA (Personal Digital Assistants), and a mobile communication terminal, the network 140 may be a wireless access network such as a mobile communication network or a WiFi As shown in FIG.

2 is a configuration diagram of the beacon generator of FIG.

Referring to FIG. 2, the beacon generator 110 may be implemented as an embedded system.

The beacon generator 110 includes a beacon communication unit 210 for transmitting a beacon signal and a beacon controller 210 for controlling the intensity and transmission frequency of the beacon signal in the first condition and controlling the start and end of transmission of the beacon signal in the second condition, (220).

The beacon signal is a Bluetooth beacon signal, and the beacon generator 110 generates a Bluetooth beacon signal according to the Bluetooth communication standard. To this end, the beacon communication unit 210 may include a Bluetooth communication circuit for Bluetooth communication, an antenna, and software for communication with the outside.

The beacon communication unit 210 transmits a communication signal including a beacon signal to the surroundings via an antenna. In this communication signal reaching distance, for example, a plurality of terminals 120 within a maximum of 50 meters according to the Bluetooth standard can receive the communication signal.

The beacon communication unit 210 directly communicates with the terminal communication unit of the terminal. As will be described later, the terminal 120 can transmit certain data or transmit certain commands to the beacon generator 110. At this time, the beacon generator 110 enters the 1: 1 direct communication mode with the corresponding terminal and can exchange information. The beacon control unit 220 directly communicates with the terminal communication unit of at least one specific terminal among the terminals Increase the beacon interval or control the beacon signal to occur at its original interval. For example, in the state where the parent terminal 120 is close and the communication connection is possible, the beacon generator 110 of the object does not need to shoot the beacon signal frequently. The battery power can be saved by emitting a beacon signal at an original interval from the point of time when communication with the parent terminal 120 is stopped.

Since the beacon generator 110 sends beacon signals and other information to as many terminals 120 as possible, if the beacon generator 110 is connected to a certain terminal 120 for a predetermined time or longer, The beacon controller 22 can forcibly terminate the connection with the terminal 120. [

The effective range of Bluetooth communication is about 50 meters. However, in order to send the signal to the maximum distance, the signal output must be increased and the battery is consumed. In addition, the range covered by a distance of 50 meters in finding a missing object is quite wide, so it is not easy to find a missing object in a region where visibility is obstructed. Especially, it is highly likely that a sinking object is easily generated in a crowded place, and therefore, it is not necessary that all the beacon generators 110 increase the signal intensity and send the signals to 50 meters. The beacon generator 110 can continuously change the intensity of the beacon signal in the weak-medium-strong manner, thereby saving power.

In the beacon generator 110, the beacon controller 220 distinguishes between a case where there are many terminals 120 that try to communicate with the beacon generator 110 and a case where there are few terminals 120, . In this way, the beacon generator 110 may save battery power by controlling the signal output according to the situation.

The beacon generator 110 may further include a beacon sensor unit 230 including a motion sensor for sensing motion. The beacon controller 220 estimates the speed of the terminal through the motion sensor and adjusts the frequency of occurrence of the Bluetooth beacon signal according to the speed of the terminal. For example, since the motion sensor of the beacon generator 110 senses the motion of the beacon generator 110 and the beacon controller 220 can estimate the motion and speed of the object through the sensed motion, You can save battery power by shooting a beacon signal a little more often in the fastest time, and by shooting a beacon signal in the normal interval in the stopped state.

In addition to the motion sensor, the beacon sensor unit 230 may include a temperature sensor for sensing the temperature, an illuminance for sensing the illuminance, and the like.

The beacon generator 110 includes a memory 240 for storing data and a power supply unit 250 for supplying power. The memory 240 may include a small-capacity Flash memory containing software and a RAM memory used as a temporary storage space for executing the code. The memory 240 may store unique identification information and information that may be necessary or helpful in locating the missing objects, such as contacts, photos, and the like. As described above, the beacon generator 110 can directly communicate with the terminal 120 to exchange information. The beacon generator 110 may further include a speaker 260 for outputting sound and a light emitting device 270 for emitting light.

3 is a configuration diagram of each of two or more terminals in FIG.

Referring to FIG. 3, each of the two or more terminals 120 includes a terminal communication unit 310 for receiving and communicating a beacon signal from the beacon generator 110, Or the beacon generator 110, an Internet communication unit 350 for transmitting the tracking result of the beacon generator 110 to the server 130, and a server managing the member information, Requesting registration or cancellation, identifying the beacon generator based on the identification information included in the beacon signal, measuring the strength of the beacon signal and the time information of receiving the beacon signal, or measuring the strength of the beacon signal based on the measured intensity of the beacon signal 110 and the beacon generator 110 for performing tracking of the beacon generator 110.

At this time, although the communication unit is divided into the terminal communication unit 310 and the Internet communication unit 350, the communication unit may be integrated into the terminal communication unit.

The terminal communication unit 310 is responsible for communication with the beacon generator 110. The terminal communication unit 310 provides a function of extracting identification information (ID value) of the beacon by analyzing the received beacon signal. The terminal communication unit 310 supports a plurality of beacon generators 110 at the same time. The terminal communication unit 310 provides a function of making a 1: 1 connection with the beacon generator 110 and exchanging data.

The missing object search performing unit 320 is responsible for user registration, real name authentication, profile information management, registration and termination of missing objects, and searching for missing objects. In addition, the missing object search performing unit 320 performs the subscription procedure through the SS 120 or the authorized authentication method such as IPIN. The missing object search performing unit 320 may register subscriber information by uploading self-introduction information and photographs from the phone. At this time, if there is an object to manage loss and disappearance, the subscriber can register the information of the beacon device possessed by the object together.

In the case of the registration of the missing object, the missing object search performing unit 320 can easily and quickly complete the registration procedure by fetching the information already input in the member profile. In addition, in case of registration of the missing object, the missing object search performing unit 320 may upload additional information (for example, information related to the dress worn by the child on the day when the missing object is a child, the same day, or a recently taken picture) . Also, the missing object search performing unit 320 may directly input contents to be notified to the members in the case of the registration of the missing objects. For example, " there are hearing impairments ", " In addition, when a situation such as the end of an event occurs, the missing object search performing unit 320 deletes the first missing object and deletes it. In addition, when the beacon signal received by the missing object object included in the list is received, the missing object search execution unit 320 notifies the server of the beacon signal sent from the server, By providing this information to the terminal owner by receiving the data, the terminal owner can support the other person to participate in the task of searching for the lost missing object. If each of the terminals 120 has information on the entirety of the missing object list, the terminal 120 does not need to check the identity of the missing object by sending the ID value extracted from the received beacon signal to the server every time, It is possible to greatly reduce the burden of communication. When the terminal 120 periodically receives the missing object list information from the server 130 or a new missing object is generated and the missing object list is updated, the server confirms that a new missing object list has been created by a method such as push notification Each of the terminals 120 may include a terminal media management unit 330 that manages media including text, pictures, and images and manages transmission and reception of calls and information with other terminals. May be further included.

The terminal media management unit 330 registers the occurrence of the missing object in the server 130 when the object is lost or is informed of the discovery of the missing object or the SMS, If you want to send and receive things like this, give the necessary support.

The terminal media management unit 330 may be implemented in various forms of applications or apps. For example, the terminal media management unit 330 may create an SNS service module having a function similar to that of a CATTO and integrate it into one of the functions of the application, or may use an existing app such as a CATTOK, a line, and a facebook.

The terminal media management unit 330 may provide various types of chat rooms to members. For example, the terminal media management unit 330 may provide the entire notification method for transmitting the news to all the members, provide a chat room for only the members in the specific area, or contact the beacon It is possible to provide a chat room targeted only to members, a chat room targeted only to members who are in contact with the beacon currently possessed by the object, or a chat room targeted only to members who discover and protect the object .

Each of the terminals 120 may further include a location collector 340 for collecting location information of the terminal itself. The terminal media management unit 320 may transmit location information of the terminal collected by the location collecting unit 340 to the server 130 or another terminal through the Internet communication unit 350. [

The location collecting unit 340 may acquire current location information through the GPS module installed in the terminal 120 and manage the location information. At this time, if the GPS module is not activated, the location information is acquired and managed through the base station information. It notifies the user whether the GPS function is activated or not and provides a function to inquire whether or not to activate the GPS function. Meanwhile, the location collecting unit 340 may provide relevant data when exchanging location information between members through the SNS service.

The terminal communication unit 310 of each of the terminals can transmit a beacon signal to another terminal. The terminal communication unit 310 of the other terminal receives the beacon signal and transmits it to the server 130 through the Internet communication unit 350 and receive the missing object search service information from the server 130.

For example, the beacon generator 110 included in the missing object does not have a wide range because the intensity of the transmitted signal is not large for battery saving purposes. Only the terminal in contact with the beacon generator 110 operates as a beacon generator 110 so that the terminal which is located near the beacon object but is not close enough to receive the beacon signal can participate in the search for the beacon object. In this case, if the terminal that received the beacon signal receives a beacon object, for example, if the missing object is a child, a message requesting to join the search for a lost child came from a smartphone close to the child. There is a place called Mia not far away. Would you like to help me find Mia? "You can send a message to ask more people around you. With this function, even if the user of the terminal 120 can not recognize that the terminal 120 has been contacted with the missing object in the vibration mode or in the bag, etc., To the other terminals, thereby indirectly helping the work of finding the missing objects.

In addition to general participants, the server 130 provides information such as contacts, location, and the like to persons or organizations that can assist in finding a missing object, such as a police station, a fire station, and a facility manager.

The machine object search execution unit 320 of the terminal 120 receives permission from the server 130 through the Internet communication unit 350 and outputs a sound to the speaker of the beacon generator 110 or controls the light emitting apparatus to emit light Information can be transmitted to the beacon generator 110.

4 is a configuration diagram of the server of FIG.

4, the server 130 receives a registration request or a revocation request of a missing object from the terminal 120 through the wired network or the wireless network 140, identification information of the beacon generating apparatus and time information of the beacon signal, A server communication unit 410 for receiving the location information of the beacon generating apparatus or the beacon generating apparatus and the tracking result of the beacon generating apparatus and transmitting the beacon object searching information to at least one user who has requested the finding of the missing object, Finding a missing object to perform a service for finding a missing object by generating information for identifying a missing object of the beacon generator using the identification information and time information of the device, the intensity of the beacon signal or the location information of the beacon generator, and the tracking result of the beacon generator A management unit 420 and member information, beacon information including identification information of the beacon generating apparatus, identification information and time information of the beacon generating apparatus, Or to find the missing including location information, the tracking result of the beacon generation unit for generating a beacon device object includes the service information, a database unit 430 for storing the log information.

The missing object search management unit 420 serves to allow the parent to register the case when a missing object is generated. The missing object search management unit 420 can extract necessary pieces of information from the previously registered member information and the beacon information. The missing object search management unit 420 manages various information further input by the registrant so as to help find a missing object. When the missing object search event is resolved, the missing object search management unit 420 arranges relevant information and logs it.

The missing object search management unit 420 starts management of the beacon generator 110 held by the missing object separately. The missing object search management unit 420 arranges the entire list information of the beacon generators 110 held by the reported missing objects and sends them to the terminal 120 of the members. When a beacon signal of the beacon generator 110 is received, the ID searcher 320 extracts an ID value from the beacon generator 110, And then determines whether the beacon generator is a missing object. The missing object search management unit 420 sends the fact that the missing object is found and the guide data for the missing object event to the terminal 120 that sends the ID value of the corresponding beacon generator 110. The information includes the help request message, photos of the sewing object, and information needed to find the sewing object such as a guide.

The missing object search management unit 420 interoperates with the SNS service module of the server communication unit 410 of the server 130 to facilitate information exchange for searching for a missing object among members. As described above, in the server communication unit 410, the beacon generating unit 110 of all the members, the member in the specific region, the member in contact with the beacon generating apparatus 110 of the missing object, In association with the establishment of a chat room between members, a missing object search management unit 420 supports this.

The missing object search management unit 420 separately manages various information including the contact time and the location of the member in contact with the beacon generator 110 to manage the history from the occurrence of the incident in detail. The missing object search management unit 420 divides the case where the event is resolved and the case where the event is resolved, and manages and manages the related history and the log, respectively.

Specifically, the missing object search management unit 420 may use the location information of each of the terminals received from two or more terminals, the time information of the beacon signal, and the intensity or positional relationship information of the beacon signal, .

For example, the missing object search management unit 420 corrects the location information of the terminal where the GPS is turned off based on the terminal that knows the accurate position by the GPS in a situation where the terminal with the GPS function turned on and the terminal with the string are mixed. In this case, since the moving speed of the object is predictable, the position information of the terminal turned on by the GPS, which is in contact with the beacon generator 110 of the object, is used as a reference and contact with the beacon generator 110 In the case of a GPS off terminal, the position information is corrected on the assumption that the terminal is close to the reference terminal, and the information is recorded in the server 130, so that the error in the search for missing object search can be reduced.

When the intensity of the beacon signal output from the beacon generator 110 is fixed, the distance between the beacon generator 110 and the beacon generator 110 is calculated based on the intensity of the received signal, Can be estimated. In other words, when the beacon signal strengths are received from the three terminals 120, the missing object search management unit 420 calculates the exact position of the beacon generator 110 using the triangulation method as shown in FIG. 5 .

The missing object search management unit 420 corrects the distance according to the intensity of the beacon signal according to the manufacturer, model, and surrounding environment of the terminals. In order to overcome the error according to the terminal maker and the model, the missing object search management unit 420 grasps the maker and model information of the terminal and tries to calculate the distance based on the information. The missing object search management unit 420 stores and manages information such as manufacturer information, model information, and SW version information of the terminal registered in the database unit 430 for this purpose. The missing object search management unit 420 may collect only the same model product of the same manufacturer to process distance calculation for more accurate distance calculation.

In addition, the missing object search management unit 420 may arrange the products and models having the same ability to receive the beacon signal through the preliminary search, and perform the distance calculation with the information in the server. The missing object search management unit 420 may apply a method of comparing the intensity of the measured beacon signal with a relative value and processing the measured beacon signal to overcome the error according to the surrounding environment. Since the signal strength changes depending on the environment, the method of converting the signal intensity into an absolute distance is not accurate. As shown in FIG. 6, the relative distance is estimated by applying a signal attenuation factor according to distance to signals received by three terminals having the same reception capability, and the beacon generator 110 ).

The missing object search management unit 420 transmits map information indicating the tracking location information of the beacon generator 110 and the location information of the terminals 120 in time order to the terminals 120. At this time, the terminal 120 displays the transmitted map information on the screen.

As shown in FIG. 7, estimated location information of the beacon generator 110 having the missing object on the map and location information of the terminal contacting the beacon generator 110 are displayed in real time on the map information. The map information can be displayed intuitively to understand the situation such as the moving speed of objects by numbering the positions on the map and displaying arrows at regular intervals or by changing the color to blurred over time and drawing them at certain time intervals .

When the beacon object search management unit 420 provides the tracking position information of the beacon generator 110 to the user registered for searching for a missing object and the tracking position information of the beacon generator 110 is set to be disclosed to a third party, To the third party.

The machine object finder management unit 420 of the server assigns the authority necessary for outputting sound to the speaker of the beacon generator 110 or emitting light to the light emitting apparatus to one of the terminals. The control unit 320 of the terminal 120 may transmit control information to the beacon generator 110 to output sound to the speaker of the beacon generator 110 or cause the light emitter to emit light according to the authority .

Figure 112014079359260-pat00004

[Table 5]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00005

Finding Mia is a public nature that you can participate in without paying money, so many people will be willing to install apps, and there is a possibility that they will be installed on the product when the product is released by the manufacturer of the smartphone (110).

You can sign up with a phone number or sign up with a username like Katok. Meanwhile, user information is registered according to a general procedure.

The Find Missing app is always running like a Kakao, so you can receive a Missed Incident notification message from the server.

(2) Register a Bluetooth beacon generator

And registers the misia and the beacon generating device at the time of registering the lost and found (see Figs. 9C and 9D).

The information of the child holding the beacon generator 110 is entered at the time of registration of the lost child. For example, you can register general profile information such as name, phone number, address, photo, and other information to help you find the missing person.

The beacon generator 110 must have identification information (unique ID) that can be distinguished from the other beacon generators 110. The beacon generator 110 is registered in the server 130 at the time of registering the lost and found (see FIG. 9D). For example, the beacon generating device 110 can be registered by displaying a beacon registration button on the misinformation registration screen and selecting the beacon registration button. At this time, the identification information, for example, the MAC address of the beacon generator 110 can be registered and displayed.

[Table 6]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00006

As shown in FIG. 9D, the terminal, for example, a smart phone may search for nearby beacon devices, display the list to the user, and the user may select and register a desired beacon device among them.

9E, the main menu of the app finds the sewing object. The main menu of the app finds the sewing object, and the main menu of the app is displayed as "Usage method", "My child registration", "BT setting", "GPS setting" "But it is not limited thereto. "BT setting" and "GPS setting" correspond to the system setting.

(3) Normal operation of smartphone and server

The server 130 manages the member information and the information of the owner (child) by beacon.

The smartphone 120 receives and manages the misreporting list information provided by the server 130. [

The smartphone 120 in contact with the beacon generator 110 compares the ID value of the beacon generator 110 with the misrecognition list to determine whether the beacon generator 110 is currently misplaced, Inform the discovery.

The server 130 appropriately responds to the beacon generator 110 again after confirming whether or not the apparatus has been misreported by the ID value of the beacon generator 110. [

 In the case where the beacon is registered by the user, the smartphone continuously monitors the beacon signal of the beacon generator held by the child, and if the child is away from the smartphone and the beacon signal is not captured, If an alarm is sounded and the beacon signal is approached again, the alarm is turned off in case the beacon signal is detected, so that the guardian can know the position of the child and keep watch (see FIG. 9f).

(4) For example, if a child is missing

If the child is missing, the child is reported through the Miss-finding application (see FIGS. 9G to 9H).

If necessary, post a photo of the child on the day if possible, post a description explaining the costume, or find additional information such as features and precautions to prevent accidents. For example, "hearing impaired." You may also post a special message from your parents, such as "Forgetting after someone finds you".

In addition, the status of the child on the same day may be additionally reported as modified (see FIG. 9h).

[Table 7]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00007

 (5) Operation of the server when a misreporting is received

And registers the beacon generator 110 in the misrecognition list based on the previously input information of the member.

After updating the missing list, the smart phone 120 is informed of the fact and the new list is downloaded. Or transmits the missed list to the smartphone 120 directly from the server.

The ID of the beacon generator 110, which is determined to be a missing person in the smartphone 120 and is sent to the server, is checked to confirm again whether or not the beacon generator 110 is a misplaced beacon generator.

If it is determined that the child is a child, the message is sent to the smartphone 120. The message contains the name and picture of the child, the information needed to find the child, and the information needed to safeguard the child.

The server 130 accumulates and manages the information of the smartphone 120 which is informed that the beacon signal has been received. And acquires location information from the smartphone 120 and collects information such as the travel path and speed of the lost person.

A smartphone receiving a beacon signal and no longer receiving a signal, and a smartphone receiving a new beacon signal and a smartphone being continuously received, and analyzes the information of each smartphone as shown in FIG. 9J Provide additional information. For example, "Mia is near you.", "Mia has passed you.", "Mia is still near you." Etc.

When the location information is created, it is linked with the map to visually display the movement of the object, which can be viewed not only in the mobile app but also on the PC's web connection (see FIG.

The server 130 discloses the information so that it can be utilized by other security systems (police station, 119, facility management office, etc.) in the surrounding area, and provides the collaboration service in various formats and forms if necessary.

(6) Mia trace (people around Mia)

A smartphone (120) carried by people in the vicinity is installed with a missile app installed.

The beacon generator 110 of the child has continuously transmitted the beacon signal.

When the smartphone 120 near the beacon generator 110, for example, at an average of 10 meters and a maximum of 50 meters, receives the beacon signal, the ID value is extracted and retrieved from the list of missing messages received from the server 130 It is determined whether or not the child is missing. If it is determined to be a missing person, the ID value of the beacon generator is sent to the server.

The server 130 once again confirms whether the corresponding ID is the beacon generator 110 that has been misreported and sends a message of finding the lost person to the corresponding smartphone 120. [ For example, as shown in FIG. 9j, for example, " There is a mistress near you. I need help. Please send me a message to appeal to join the search for lost children.

[Table 8]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00008

The smartphone 120 can now track the signal of the beaconing device 110 possessed by the missing object by knowing that the corresponding ID has been misreported. That is, it can be determined whether or not the object continues to be around the self. The app can notify the user, for example, how to keep the warning screen flashing or making a sound (see Figure 9j).

The server 130 sends a message to search for missing children to find information such as a photograph of the child and clothes information.

The holder of the smartphone 120 looks around, for example, an average of 10 meters, a maximum of 50 meters, and looks for a loser. The missed app of the smartphone 120 itself measures and calculates the intensity of the beacon signal and roughly informs the distance to the object to help the user find the object quickly.

While the smartphone 120 is receiving the beacon signal, the smartphone continues to generate an alarm. The owner of the smartphone continues to know that the object is still nearby.

Using the SNS function, you can exchange information with registrants and other members. You can share your current location and surroundings with others.

If the beacon signal of the object is not captured, the child moved away. It is no longer useful to look around and look around. However, the information that the contact with the beacon generator 110 of the mothers remains in the server 130 is utilized as useful information (see FIG. 9k).

(7) Protecting and guiding objects (people who found objects and people around them)

The person who discovered the child notifies the user that he or she has found the object through the app. You can use SNS, through the app's main menu, or through the buttons included in the Missing Search notification message.

[Table 9]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00009

[Table 10]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00010

In order to filter false or accidental discovery messages, it is possible to check whether the lost beacon generator 110 is in close proximity to the smartphone or close to the smartphone for a predetermined time or longer.

The discoverer can clearly notify the discovery by uploading a photograph of the child and can also inform people of the information such as the injury. You may also ask for additional help and support from nearby people.

The server 130 notifies the parent of the discovery of the child. If the found location information is obtained, it can be transmitted. It is also possible to transmit information such as the telephone number of the discoverer.

Of course, it is also possible for the discoverer to communicate directly with their parents via phone or SNS.

In addition to the people around the discoverer, other people who have identified Mia can also use SNS to upload pictures or upload messages.

For example, if you know that you are a missing child and that you are trying to kidnap, or deliberately delaying your report, you may be concerned that a lot of people around you are watching, (In particular, they are listed on the police suspect list at least in some cases), the information related to the smartphone owner is logged on the server 130 It is effective.

(7) Cancellation

If the child returns to his or her parents safely, the parent will terminate the child's misdemeanor.

[Table 11]

Figure 112014079359260-pat00011

The server 130 deletes the beacon generator 110 from the missing-in list. The server 130 sends an event solving message to the smartphone that sent the misplaced message. Those who have received a misreporting message and have been doing miss-finding activities see an event solving message and finish the activity. The server 130 organizes all the information from the time when the child is lost to the time when the case is solved, and stores the event file in the database.

This information is used for future confirmation of facts, evidence, case re-examination, legal processing, and big data analysis.

According to the present invention, a smartphone user installing a smartphone app and subscribing to a service is automatically notified that a missing person is close to a child registered as a missing object, for example, a child, It is possible to receive various information as needed, so that it can be easily actively participated in the miss-finding activity, and more effective and practical help can be provided.

The existing service related to the sewing object attaches the Bluetooth beacon to the object. For example, if the object is a child, if the child is away from the parent and the communication between the Bluetooth beacon of the child and the parent smartphone is cut off, It was a very simple service to prevent the object of the sewing alarm. However, the present invention has an effect of providing a function of searching for a missing object which has an active meaning to quickly find a child who has already become a missing object and take it to a parent, out of sight of the parent.

In addition, many people join the activity of finding a sewing object at the same time to find a sewing object while collaborating with each other, so that the sewing object can be found much faster in a wider area than a registrant or a few related persons.

Although the embodiments have been described by setting the missing object as a missing object with reference to the drawings, the present invention is not limited thereto.
