Description

Hands-free system and the controlling method

The present invention relates to a hands-free system, and more particularly, to a hands-free system and a control method thereof capable of connecting a call even when the driver leaves the driver's seat in the hands-free mode.

Recently, hands-free of a vehicle has been performed by wireless communication such as Bluetooth in order to ensure maximum autonomy of the driver.

The wireless hands-free system wirelessly communicates with a paired portable terminal, so that a user can make a voice call without holding the portable terminal by using a speaker, a microphone, or the like of the vehicle.

However, the conventional wireless hands-free system provides a hands-free service even if the mobile terminal is within a radius capable of wireless communication even if the portable terminal is separated from the vehicle in a paired state.

Therefore, a portable terminal which is separated from a vehicle in a state of being paired with a wireless hands-free system and is within a radius capable of wireless communication has a problem in that it cannot receive an external telephone.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention has been made in view of the above-described technical background, and provides a hands-free system and a method of controlling the same, wherein the mobile terminal is in a hands-free mode which leaves the driver's seat to vent a pairing state to switch to a call mode.

Advantages and features of the present invention and methods for achieving them will be apparent with reference to the embodiments described below in detail with the accompanying drawings. The present invention may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as being limited to the embodiments set forth herein. Rather, these embodiments are provided so that this disclosure will be thorough and complete, and will fully convey the scope of the invention to those skilled in the art. Is provided to fully convey the scope of the invention to those skilled in the art, and the invention is only defined by the scope of the claims. It is to be understood that the terminology used herein is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments only and is not intended to be limiting of the invention. In the present specification, the singular form includes plural forms unless otherwise specified in the specification. As used herein, the terms " comprises, " and / or "comprising" refer to the presence or absence of one or more other components, steps, operations, and / Or additions.

Embodiments of the present invention will now be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. 1 is a block diagram showing a wireless hands-free system according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 1, the wireless hands-free system 10 according to the embodiment of the present invention includes a pressure sensor 110, a communication module 120, a controller 130, and a hands-free module 140.

The pressure sensor 110 is provided at the lower end of the driver's seat, detects the pressure of the driver's seat, and transmits a detection signal corresponding to the detected pressure to the communication module 120. In this case, the pressure sensor 110 may be a component of the wireless hands free system 10 and may exist separately from the wireless hands free system 10.

The communication module 120 is, for example, a CAN transceiver, receives a detection signal from the pressure sensor 110 provided in the driver's seat through a vehicle network, converts the detection signal into detection data that can be interpreted by the controller 130, and controls the controller ( 130).

If the controller 130 can interpret the detection signal of the pressure sensor 110 without conversion, the communication module 120 may be omitted.

The controller 130 is a CPU driven by firmware, and when the switching service is executed in a state of being paired with the portable terminal 20, the controller 130 is connected to the portable terminal 20 according to whether the driver is seated by the sensed data. Resume pairing after continuing, disconnecting or releasing the pairing connection. Here, the mode switching service may be executed or selected through an app of the mobile terminal 20 or a user interface of the wireless hands-free system 10.

When the automatic switching is selected, the controller 130 automatically releases the pairing when the driver leaves the driver's seat and automatically reconnects the pairing when the driver's driver's seat is again.

When manual switching is selected, the controller 130 instructs the mobile terminal 20 to provide voice or text guidance through Bluetooth communication when the driver leaves the driver's seat, and the driver who checks the voice or text guidance of the mobile terminal 20 is portable. When the pairing request is released through the terminal 20, the handsfree mode of the portable terminal 20 may be released by releasing the pairing.

The hands free module 140 includes a speaker, a microphone, a Bluetooth communication unit, and the like, and when paired with the mobile terminal 20, provides the hands free service to the mobile terminal 20 through Bluetooth communication.

On the other hand, when the mobile terminal 20 is paired with the wireless hands-free system 10, the mobile terminal 20 switches to the hands-free mode for making a voice call through the hands-free module 140. When the pairing is released, the mobile terminal 20 does not go directly through the hands-free module 140. Switch to the call mode to receive.

Hereinafter, a wireless hands-free control method according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 2. 2 is a flowchart illustrating a wireless hands-free control method according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 2, the wireless hands-free system 10 checks whether the portable terminal 20 is in a hands-free mode in a paired state (S210). In this case, the wireless hands-free system 10 provides a hands-free mode and a hands-free service to the mobile terminal 20 when audio is turned on.

If the portable terminal 20 is in the hands-free mode, the wireless hands-free system 10 checks whether the mode switching service is executed (S220).

When the mode switching service is executed, the wireless hands-free system 10 monitors whether the driver leaves the driver's seat (S230).

When the driver leaves the driver's seat, the wireless hands-free system 10 performs steps (S240) to (S260) when the driver selects automatic switching, and steps (S270) to (S290) when the driver selects the manual switching. To perform.

When the driver selects the automatic switching, the wireless hands-free system 10 automatically detects the driver's departure from the driver's seat and automatically releases pairing with the portable terminal 20 (S240).

In addition, the wireless hands-free system 10 monitors whether the driver re-rides (S250).

When the wireless hands-free system 10 confirms the driver's re-ride, the wireless hands-free system 10 is automatically paired with the portable terminal 20 to switch the portable terminal 20 to the hands-free mode (S260).

When the driver selects manual switching, the wireless hands-free system 10 transmits a voice or text indicating that the user is in the hands-free mode through the Bluetooth communication to the portable terminal 20 (S270). Then, the mobile terminal 20 guides the received voice or text to the driver, and can execute a vibration, an alarm, or the like together so that the driver's attention can be focused.

When the wireless hands-free system 10 receives the request for the release of the hands-free mode from the mobile terminal 20 (YES in S280), the wireless hands-free system 10 releases the pairing so that the mobile terminal 20 switches from the hands-free mode to the call mode (S290).

As described above, the present invention can remind the portable terminal of the driver who has left the driver's seat in the hands-free mode, thereby preventing the problem of missing a voice call in the wireless region outside the vehicle.

While the present invention has been described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments. Those skilled in the art will appreciate that various modifications, Of course, this is possible. Accordingly, the scope of protection of the present invention should not be limited to the above-described embodiments, but should be determined by the description of the following claims.
