Description

 User location based cloud printing system {CLOUD PRINTING SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING LOCATION}

The present invention relates to a user location-based cloud printing system, and more particularly, by providing a user's location information and matching information of an image forming apparatus server and a terminal registered around the user by using a wireless mobile terminal and a cloud printing system. Relates to a user location based cloud printing system capable of outputting from an image forming apparatus within a shortest distance.

       In general, an image forming apparatus includes functions such as copying, printing, faxing or scanning an original, and a box function. Such a multifunction device is called a multifunction printer (MFP).

In other words, the multifunction device not only functions as a printer for printing data input from a host computer, but also as a scanner for scanning image documents, a digital copy function for printing and copying scanned and scanned image documents, and an image document through a communication line. It is a device with a compound document output function that performs a facsimile function for transmitting a remote control.

In other words, it is a multi-functional terminal that integrates existing terminal devices such as facsimile machines, scanners, printers, and digital copiers. In many cases, a plurality of image forming apparatuses are connected to each other.

Recently, the introduction of a cloud printing system has been promoted beyond simply connecting a wired / wireless network between an image forming apparatus and a host computer / other terminal or a plurality of image forming apparatuses. However, the conventional cloud printing technology has a problem that mainly the printer output technology using the application of the smartphone.

       Technical problem to be solved by the present invention to solve the above problems,

A user location-based cloud printing system capable of performing output by searching for a nearby image forming apparatus based on a user's location using a wireless mobile terminal and a cloud printing system in a plurality of image forming apparatuses having a complex function and connected to a network. In providing.

In order to achieve the above technical problem, the present invention provides a cloud printing system comprising the steps of: transmitting print data to a cloud server using a wireless communication portable terminal having a complex function; and user location to a cloud server when the print data is transmitted. Selecting whether to send the information and transmitting the user location information to the cloud server, by matching the location information of the user with a short distance cloud image forming apparatus or a specialized output office having the cloud image forming apparatus in the cloud server; The step of guiding, selecting a specialized output office having the guided cloud image forming apparatus or cloud image forming apparatus and processing and billing the print data in the specialized output office having the selected cloud image forming apparatus or cloud image forming apparatus only By providing a user with location-based cloud printing system comprising the step of outputting the printing data are obtained.

As described above, by utilizing the user location-based cloud printing system according to the present invention, a plurality of image forming apparatuses existing on the network can be searched for outputting image forming apparatus and specialized output office information based on the user's location. By improving the user's convenience and efficiency, and in the case of specialized printing offices there is an increase in sales.

2 is a flowchart of a user location based cloud printing system according to the present invention.
3 is a view showing an execution screen of the user location-based cloud printing system according to the present invention.

Hereinafter, the objects, features, and advantages of the present invention described above will be described in more detail with reference to preferred embodiments of the present invention shown in the accompanying drawings.

The terms to be described below are terms defined in consideration of functions in the present invention, and may vary according to the intention or custom of a person skilled in the art, and the definitions should be made based on the contents throughout the specification.

1 is a schematic configuration diagram of a user location-based cloud printing system according to an embodiment of the present invention.

An image forming apparatus according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention controls the memory unit 132, the scanning unit 134, the power supply unit 136, the output unit 110, the display panel unit 142, the fax unit 144, and the respective units. The central control unit 130 is configured to transmit and receive to and from the cloud server 170 and the plurality of portable terminals 150 and the plurality of cloud image forming apparatuses 122 and 124 connected to the wired and wireless network through the wired and wireless interface unit 120. Perform the action.

The cloud server 170 is a system that allows an authenticated user to send and output printer information.

The cloud image forming apparatuses 122 and 124 are image forming apparatuses capable of outputting information using an internal domain name as well as a network method using an existing IP.

It is preferable that the application between the mobile terminal and the cloud printing system is an application (application, APP) software that is widely used in smart terminals.

2 to 3 are flowcharts and execution screens of a user location-based cloud printing system according to an embodiment of the present invention.

       Transmitting print data to a cloud server using a wireless communication portable terminal having a complex function (S210) and selecting whether to transmit user location information to the cloud server when transmitting the print data (S220) and the user. In case of selecting the transmission of the location information to the cloud server, the step of guiding a specialized output office having the shortest distance cloud image forming apparatus or the cloud image forming apparatus in the cloud server stage by matching the location information of the user (S230) and the guided cloud Selecting a specialized output office having an image forming apparatus or a cloud image forming apparatus (S240); processing and charging print data at a specialized output office having the selected cloud image forming apparatus or a cloud image forming apparatus (S250); And outputting the print data (S260). It shall be.

Selecting whether or not to transmit the user location information to the cloud server (S220) and if the user location information is selected to transmit to the cloud server professional output having a cloud image forming apparatus or a cloud image forming apparatus at the shortest distance from the cloud server If you select No in step S230 of guiding the office, the preferred image forming apparatus or
