1 to 7, the vehicle control system using the smart phone according to the present embodiment has a wireless charging function and communicates with the vehicle 200 through the application for vehicle control, And a vehicle 200 that charges the smartphone 100 through wireless communication and operates according to a control signal of the smartphone 100. [

The smartphone 100 includes a phone NFC and a charge antenna unit 110 capable of performing NFC communication and charging at the same time, a vehicle application management unit 120 that performs communication with the vehicle through NFC communication to control the vehicle, A phone control unit 130 for controlling the operation of each part of the smartphone 100 according to a user's command signal and an external control signal, a touch input unit 140 receiving a command signal of the user, A phone communication unit 150 for communicating with the outside through a telephone line, and a phone power supply unit 160 for applying power to the smartphone 100.

The ponce NFC and the charge antenna unit 110 have an antenna for transmitting and receiving NFC and receiving power. Through this, it is possible to communicate with the vehicle through the NFC, to provide a control signal and a user identification signal to the vehicle, and to receive a signal such as a user identification signal from the vehicle. In addition, since the wireless receiving antenna operates as a wireless receiving antenna, the smart phone can be charged wirelessly according to a wireless power source provided in the vehicle.

In the case of communicating with the vehicle through the NFC, it is preferable that the vehicle application of the vehicle application management unit 120 is automatically executed.

The vehicle application management unit 120 manages a vehicle application installed in the smartphone 100 for vehicle control. The vehicle application includes an NFC control module 121 for controlling NFC communication with a vehicle, a user identification module 122 for identifying a vehicle and a user through identification of a registered vehicle, inputting a user ID and a password, A vehicle registration module 124 for performing initial vehicle registration and user registration, a vehicle operation control module 125 for controlling door open, start and internal electronic devices of the vehicle, And a data relay module 126 for relaying additional communication with the electronic devices in the vehicle 200. [

In order to control the vehicle by the vehicle application management unit 120, various modes can be used. That is, the control of the vehicle and the corresponding security level can be differentiated through the normal mode, the security mode, and the enhanced mode. In the normal mode, the vehicle is controlled by a control system in the vehicle with general vehicle control. In case of the security mode, when the smartphone 100 is authenticated through NFC communication with the smartphone 100, And the enhanced mode can control the vehicle after the user authentication through the application management unit 120. [

The phone control unit 130 controls the operation of each part of the smartphone 100 according to an external control signal by transmitting the command signal of the user inputted through the touch input unit 140 to each part,

When the vehicle application management unit 120 is executed, the touch input unit 140 allows a user to directly input a command. Of course, it is preferable that the command is transmitted through the phone control unit 130 at this time. Of course, an instruction may be directly transmitted from the touch input unit to the vehicle application management unit.

The phone communication unit 150 enables Internet communication and telephone network communication of the smartphone 100 and enables communication with the vehicle through a communication method other than NFC.

The phone power supply unit 160 is effective in using a battery and stores power received from the phone NFC and the charge antenna unit 110. [

In the following, a vehicle in which the inside is controlled through communication with the smartphone will be described.

The vehicle 200 includes a vehicle NFC and a charging antenna 210 for performing NFC communication and wireless charging, a vehicle activation unit 220 for activating each part including the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210 according to an external signal, A main controller 230 for controlling the operation of the vehicle according to a control signal provided through the NFC communication, a haptic switch unit activated according to a control signal of the main controller 230, An alarm unit 260 that operates in response to an alarm signal from the main control unit 230 and the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210, And a communication control unit 270 for performing communication between the control unit and the in-vehicle electric device.

The vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210 include a body 211 attached to the windshield of the vehicle 200, an NFC driver 212 performing NFC communication, a wireless charging unit 213 performing wireless charging, And a charging power source 214 for supplying charging power to the wireless charger.

It is effective that the NFC driver 212 and the wireless charging unit 213 use a single antenna.

That is, it is effective that the NFC driver 212 and the wireless charging unit 213 are manufactured in a single configuration, and the signal processing is preferably performed separately. In the case of using a single antenna, it is preferable that the NFC driver 212 and the wireless charging unit 213 use the same driving circuit.

Of course, the present invention is not limited thereto, and separate antennas can be used. At this time, if a separate antenna is used, it is preferable that a wireless charging antenna is disposed under the NFC antenna.

Thereby enabling wireless charging of the smartphone 100 to the outside of the vehicle. At this time, the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210 are activated by the vehicle activation unit 220. Then, it is effective that the wireless charging unit 213 proceeds charging for the initial 1 to 5 minutes, and then continuously charges after the authentication through the NFC communication. When the smartphone 100 is completely discharged, the charging of the smartphone 100 is performed to the extent that operation of the smartphone 100 is possible outside the vehicle (such that the power is turned on). After the power of the smartphone 100 is turned on, It is possible to wirelessly charge only the smartphone 100 authenticated through communication. Accordingly, it is possible to prevent the unauthorized smartphone 100 from performing wireless charging for a long time from the outside. In addition, excessive consumption of the battery in the vehicle can be prevented.

The body portion 211 has a bonding surface that can be attached to the vehicle windshield and has a body on which the NFC driver 212 and the wireless charging portion 213 are mounted.

The vehicle activation section 220 is activated when the vehicle is stopped and locked. At this time, the main functions other than the vehicle starting section are started with the minimum power. Thereafter, when the user performs an action to use the vehicle, it senses it and turns all the functions of the vehicle into an active state.

The vehicle start unit 220 includes a start detecting unit 221 for detecting a vehicle start input by a user and a start signal generating unit 222 for generating a signal for starting the vehicle according to the detection result.

It is effective to use an acoustic sensor for sensing a voice signal inside the vehicle. Accordingly, when the user knocks the vehicle, the knocking sound can be sensed to generate a start signal for starting the vehicle.

When an acoustic sensor is used, it is effective that the acoustic sensor is located near the driver's seat of the vehicle.

The start signal generating unit 222 analyzes the result of the acoustic sensor and generates a start signal only when a pattern for vehicle start is input.

In the present embodiment, it is preferable to generate a start signal when the knocking sound of the user is continuously 3 to 10 times. This makes it possible to prevent the devices inside the vehicle from being activated without the user's intention. Of course, in the above description, the continuous knock sound is detected, but it is also possible to detect the knock pattern.

At this time, the amplification unit and the filter unit may be provided to minimize the noise of the signal, and a separate comparator may be provided to detect the difference between the input signal and the pre-stored signal to decide whether to operate. To do this, the user can store input such as a note sound in advance. At this time, it is preferable that the operation is determined when the difference between the input signal and the stored signal is 70 to 100%.

Or the pressure sensor / vibration sensor may be used as the start signal generator 222. The pressure sensor / vibration sensor is attached to the windshield face of the vehicle and operates when the user hits the glass face of the vehicle. At this time, it is preferable that the start signal generating unit 222 also generates a start signal by sensing the pressure pattern of the pressure sensor. Alternatively, such a sensor may be attached to the door handle of the vehicle for sensing.

It is effective that the start signal generating unit 222 activates the main control unit 230 of the vehicle and activates the vehicle NFC and the charge antenna unit 210 through the generated start signal. Until then, the main control unit 230 performs operations on the minimum apparatus and apparatus with minimum power.

This allows the vehicle's battery to be protected by reducing its strategy when the vehicle is not in use.

The main control unit 230 includes a radio control unit 231 for controlling NFC and charging according to signals from the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210, A device control unit 232 for controlling the device, and an authentication control unit 233 for authenticating the smartphone 100. [

The radio controller 231 performs communication between the vehicle 200 and the smartphone 100 through NFC communication and can perform communication between the vehicle 200 and the smartphone 100 through another radio communication. The radio controller 231 transmits the NFC data to the device controller using the 485 bus.

In this embodiment, NFC communication is performed to open (lock) the initial door of the vehicle because the NFC recognition distance is about 20 cm. After that, the NFC communication is performed in the interior of the vehicle and the smart phone 100 (wireless communication) through wireless communication (RF, Wi- ). In this case, it is preferable that the smartphone 100 communicates with the vehicle through the data relay module 126 and the phone communication unit 150 of the application management unit 120 and receives mutual information and signals. It is preferable to use 13.56 MHz for NFC communication.

The radio control unit 231 preferably performs encrypted data communication through an encryption routine that is a combination of the vehicle number of the registered vehicle, the telephone number of the smart phone, and the password entered by the user.

The device control unit 232 may be configured to open the door of the vehicle, perform wireless charging, approve the starting of the vehicle, or control the electric device inside the vehicle (including the acoustic device), in accordance with the user's control signal provided through the radio control unit 231, ). The device controller 232 automatically locks the door of the vehicle when the communication with the smartphone 100 is interrupted.

The authentication control unit 233 confirms whether the signal provided through the radio control unit 231 is provided through the authenticated smartphone 100. [ If it is determined that the smartphone is not a pre-registered / authenticated smart phone, the operation of the main control unit 230 is disabled and a warning alarm is sounded through the alarm unit. That is, it is preferable to generate an alarm when the authentication and the initial registration value do not coincide with each other three or more times.

Also, the authentication control unit 233 can vary the operating condition of the main control unit 232 according to the authentication setting condition (mode) of the user. For example, when the user sets the normal mode, when the smart phone information provided through NFC communication matches the stored smart phone information, the main control unit is activated and operated. When the user sets the security mode, one of the smart phone information and the user information is received and activated. When the user coincides with the smartphone information, the enhanced mode activates the main control only when the user authentication such as the smart phone information and the password is passed. .

Accordingly, the above information can be exchanged through NFC communication. The information is stored in a separate storage unit in the main control unit 230.

The haptic switch unit 240 includes a haptic sensor 241 activated by the device control unit 232 of the main control unit 230, a vibration motor 242 indicating the haptic drive, and an LED unit 243). Thus, the start of the vehicle can be facilitated, the operation status is displayed through the LED unit 423, and the advance signal is built in, thereby enabling the user to check whether or not the vehicle is started.

The wireless cradle 250 is mounted on a dashboard of the vehicle and includes a cradle body portion 251 on which the smartphone 100 is placed and a wireless charging antenna 252 located inside the body portion 251.

It is effective that the wireless charging antenna 252 has the same configuration as that of the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit 210 described above.

In the following, a vehicle control method using the vehicle control system having the above-described configuration will be described.

8 is a flowchart illustrating a method of controlling a vehicle using a smartphone according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 8, the smartphone is connected to the vehicle through NFC communication for controlling the vehicle, performs wireless communication, and installs an application that can control the operation of the vehicle.

Then, a vehicle for control is registered in the smartphone (S110).

The NFC tag of the smart phone is brought into contact with the NFC and the charge antenna portion of the vehicle. Vehicle information (vehicle name, manufacturing date, etc.) is provided to the smartphone, and information (phone number, etc.) of the smart phone is provided to the vehicle. Vehicle information entered on the screen of the smartphone is displayed and requests input of additional information. At this time, the added information includes the vehicle number and the vehicle specific number designated by the user. Subsequently, information to be provided to the vehicle and stored is received. At this time, the information provided to the vehicle includes user information and additional smartphone information. Then, authentication and password for vehicle control are provided. At this time, one authentication or a password can be provided according to the setting, and each operation of the vehicle can be controlled, and different authentication and password can be provided for each operation of the vehicle. Preferably, it is effective to distinguish the opening of the vehicle door and the starting and other device driving, respectively, and to provide authentication and a password. At this time, authentication uses a pattern and an image, and a password receives a number or a letter. Then, the password thus inputted is transmitted to the vehicle so that it can be confirmed by the vehicle. This is to allow the control of the vehicle to be controlled even if only the authentication and the password are known when controlling the vehicle with another smartphone.

After the vehicle registration is completed, the control mode is selected. When the general mode is selected, when the smart phone information provided through the NFC communication matches the designated smart phone information, the operation control mode is transferred to the application of the smart phone. The security mode is transferred to the application of the smartphone only after the smart phone information and the authentication or the password are inputted and authenticated through the application. In the enhanced mode, the control authority of the vehicle is transferred to the smartphone sequentially at each step even after the authentication with the smartphone information and the authentication or the password is completed. That is, after the initial door opening, another authentication is required to start the vehicle. In order to operate the device inside the vehicle with a smartphone, another authentication is required.

The vehicle control step using the smart phone will be described as follows.

First, it is checked whether the smartphone is discharged. If the battery is discharged, the charging is performed by positioning the smartphone in the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit located on the windshield of the vehicle. If the smartphone is not discharged and operates, the smartphone is brought into contact with the vehicle NFC and the charging antenna unit.

Here, it is preferable that the charging of the smartphone is performed for a short time such that the smart phone can be driven as described above. The charging of the smartphone is performed by a wireless charging method.

Next, the information of the smartphone is provided to the vehicle through the NFC communication, and the application for the vehicle control of the smartphone is activated.

At this time, an operation for activating the vehicle may be performed before the NFC contact (S120).

In this embodiment, all power except the minimum power is cut off to minimize battery consumption of the vehicle. At this time, if the user performs an operation for activating the vehicle, the vehicle recognizes it and can activate the devices in the vehicle. This allows the vehicle to be activated by knocking the windshield of the vehicle in a certain pattern and sensing it by the detection sensor as previously signed. Or by touching the door handle of the vehicle and activating the vehicle by applying vibration or pressure.

It is preferable to conduct the NFC contact after activating in this manner (S130).

If the smart phone information provided to the vehicle matches the stored information, the door of the vehicle is opened, a password or an authentication procedure is performed on the application screen, and when the password and the authentication input are successful, (S140). Alternatively, an existing smart key image is displayed on the application screen, and the user can open the vehicle door through this image. At this time, when authentication is not successful 3 to 5 times, an alarm occurs.

Then, when the vehicle door is opened, the vehicle and the smartphone constantly communicate with each other to determine whether or not the smartphone is located in the vehicle.

When the user starts the vehicle through the haptic switch, the vehicle start operation is performed at the moment of pressing the haptic switch according to the user setting, or the application of the smart phone is performed to carry out the authentication. If the authentication is successful, (S150, S160).

Subsequently, the internal device control of the vehicle can be freely controlled according to the user setting, or can be controlled only when the application of the smart phone is performed and the authentication proceeds to succeed.

Further, the vehicle can be separated into a boundary mode, a standby mode, and a running mode according to the state.

In the boundary mode, only the function for detecting the external user in the locked state of the vehicle is activated. Of course, it is preferable that the function for preventing theft of the vehicle is also activated. In the boundary mode, when the knock is detected in the external communication unit, the vehicle can be activated to enable wireless charging and NFC communication. If the detected smart phone is correct, the door can be opened and enter the standby mode. Of course, if the input is different more than five times, an alarm is generated. Then, in the boundary mode, an alarm is generated by forcibly opening the door.

The standby mode is the state in which the vehicle door is opened and the power is supplied.

In the standby mode, the operation of the wireless cradle is started together with the power supply of the haptic. When the smartphone is not mounted on the cradle, the operation of the haptic is suspended, and when the smartphone is mounted, the haptic switch can be driven. Subsequently, when starting through the taps, the vehicle enters the traveling mode. Of course, if the user is not through the user check, the haptic can be turned off.

The driving mode is the state in which the engine of the vehicle is started.

When starting through the haptic, the engine is started after checking whether the brake is on and whether the gear is in a normal state. Subsequently, the NFC communication can be turned off during the traveling mode.

As such, data between the smartphone and the vehicle can be stored as recent data such as registered vehicle status monitor, smart phone data reception and relay, and vehicle location, and can be used for smart phone registration and authentication, vehicle information registration and authentication, Information is provided to perform maintenance.

While the present invention has been particularly shown and described with reference to exemplary embodiments thereof, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the disclosed exemplary embodiments. It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made in the present invention without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention.
