For a description of device for the card has biometric information of the wearer and to write this information in the permanent data storage. A terminal for registration and verification of voters shall determine equally means the biometric information of the card holder, as well as the biometric information can be read from the permanent card memory card. To determine the eligibility, the two information obtained are compared from the chip card and from the writing device and identity information of the selection process is released. With the method, the purpose is followed to carry out voting, selections, reviews, purchase transactions by the identifier (information) is assigned to a chip card to certain criteria, wherein the criteria are in relation to the selection process. It should beispiels-, be possible to determine the rating of the quality of lectures by the audience use their cards and use the cards in a certain, marked spatially card reader, the positions of the card reader certain rating classes are assigned, but equally to the process be adapted to facilitate payments at checkouts in supermarkets.

Technical Problem:

The invention is based on the object of voting, selections, reviews, payment transactions by users of smart cards to be carried lead, with double or multiple votes are to be excluded.

Disclosure of the invention and its advantages:

The object is inventively that the devices

includes means for recording and processing of information from smart cards, wherein said means the information about galvanic contacts and / or detect a contact-free electromagnetic waves, said means are associated with particular spatial and / or temporal and / or informal criteria, whereby upon detection of the information the smart card is associated in one of the center information of the chip card with one or more criteria and / or in combination, whereby the repeated linkage and / or combination of information the chip card is excluded criterion in the device.

In another embodiment of the device the means at spatially different and specifically identified positions, each specific labeling is the information of a certain selection criterion. The devices are capable of detecting the temporal order of the use of funds and to be used as an evaluation criterion. the areas specifically identified are present on an electronically recordable medium and can be changed by electronic control so that a rapid adaptation of criterion and selecting operation is obtained. Write the means specific Informationenen to the card and this information is stored in the card, the information on the card to be used in a device by the information sheds light on the selection and / or purchase the card user actions.

Preferred embodiments of the invention:

According to the invention a method for using a smart card 1 in connection with one and / or other devices 2 is thus described. The units 2 provide the user with a smart card 1, a choice of possible uses of the smart card 1. The device 2 includes means 3 for recording and processing of information from smart cards 1. These means are known card readers, as already widely available on the market are. These card readers (Intermediate 3), the information which is included in a card, via galvanic contacts but also to exchange alternatively or additionally without contact via electromagnetic waves between the card and card reader. There are cards 1 and card readers known that take advantage of coil power and data, there are also known cards replace the infrared signals. Also known are cards and readers, both with contact as communicate data without contact between the card and reader / writer (Intermediate 3). The means 3 are determined spatial and / or temporal and / or informal criteria 4 is associated. It can for example be present, so that the information of a card 1 at a time can be read by only one of several card readers means at spatially different locations. Thus, with the detecting information of the smart card 1 in one of the means 3 the information of the smart card 1 with one or more criteria 4 is linked / combined, with the criteria to be accurately determined by the selected card reader. the data of the chip card are thus associated with data specific means and / or devices associated with the third The specific information is, for example, by a name or a trade name or a location name (for example, position 1). Is now in the device 2, the same process is repeated with the same card, this further link, and / or combination of information of the smart card 1 with 4 criterion may be excluded, since the previous link is known. With the described method it is possible to conduct polls, selections, reviews by users of smart cards without double or multiple votes and manipulations are possible.

The device 2 containing means 3 for reading the information from smart cards in spatially different positions and specifically identified. In such a way it is ensured that a user inserts his smart card in the means 3 for reading the map that corresponds to his choice. The selection of a specific label is thus in the apparatus 2 at the same time the information of a certain selection criterion is, since the device 2 can establish the spatial relationship between means 3 and a selection criterion. Is, for example, the specific marking a position in the specification of a name, when using this position of standing there name as a selection criterion (specific information) are detected. The device 2 can also record the chronological order of the use of the card 1 to the funds. 3 If a card is first then inserted temporally in the means 3 in the means 1, it can be detected as a rating in which the criterion is associated with means 3, is rated higher than the criterion, which is connected to means. 1 There is such a choice due to the chronological order of use.

Come means 3 are used, the map information are transferred without contact, information is able to specifically marked areas are recorded, behind which the means 3 are provided. The card 1 is approximated to the surfaces, an assignment from card to criterion which is given by the marked surface. The areas specifically identified may be present on an electronically writeable medium (claim 5). This is the example given when markings for the storage contents are given electronically in warehouses. These markings can be varied by electronic control. Such price information is changing rapidly, as well as goods information may change, so it should be optional for such diverse products such as screws or radishes. Via the electronic control rapid adaptation of criteria and selection process is given.

The means 3, the information that is associated with the agent have the specific information about the card 1 to write (claim 1). This information can be stored in the card. The specific information on the card can be used in a device 4 in order to provide information on the selection and purchase or actions of the card user. For example, a card 1 can be used at a warehouse by the card is held in the vicinity of a terminal 1, which writes the information on goods in the warehouse on the card that are present in the warehouse (for example, radish). If the information of the card read out to a device 4, which device 4 may also be a cash register in a supermarket, eliminating the input operation for radishes, since the information about the radish extraction is already present on the card and the radish in the basket of the card user are visible , Such applicable at the box office take to acquire the goods withdrawal of the customer.

The means 3 can write a data connection to a remote sensing station 6 (claim 2) the information of the card as well as optionally additional data using the card identifier. The card identification is suitable to assign the operations of the user to the various means 3, by assigning the selection of radish of the card identifier for example. In addition, data from means 3 can be written to the card either. Thus also for the card user a check of the emitted by means 3 data results. Be in the remote sensing station 6 data of the means 3 and / or data of the card 1 used by these data are allocated to certain goods is an automatic assignment of goods, for example, on a treadmill, and goods which have been removed from a shelf, it is possible (claim 3). For this purpose, the goods must be captured electronically and / or visually at the station. 8 This can be done that detects the goods by optical electronic means and compared with the originating from the means 3 on the shelf or from the card 1 prior information "Radish". So there is an assignment of the data of the means 3 to the goods to be recorded electronically and / or visually at the remote sensing station.

The originating from means 3 and / or of the card 1, information can be used at the remote sensing station 6, to prepare a comparison of a detected at the station 6 electronic image 9 with the sampled in a shelf Gut 10 (claim 4). At the

Station 6 is for this purpose an electronic image 9 from the

generates information of the means 3 and / or the card. 1 The image 9 allows the card user and / or other people between real goods / goods 10 and images to compare. 9 It could be the

Goods are passed out of a basket, for example individually onto a conveyor belt in the electronic, optical sensing station 7 over.

At the same time, a virtual image of the real existing on the conveyor belt radish is made of this notice "radishes" generated, allowing for

is humanly possible a visual comparison between Figure 9 and goods 10th

Brief description of the drawing in which show Figure 1 an electronic chip card with devices that a selection of

permit uses the smart card and figure 2 shows an apparatus for automatic electronic capture of the image of a commodity. The reference numeral 1 in figure, an electronic smart card is in the reference numeral 2 are devices in which allow a selection of possibilities of use of the chip card. 1 There are 3 available spatially distinguishable means arranged so marked records which allow the detection of information of the card 1 or the transmission of information to the card. 1 A device 7 for automatically electronically recording the image of a commodity 10 is shown in FIG. 2 An image of nine of the goods 10 is displayed on a monitor. 11

Industrial applicability.

The invention is applicable for example to assess the quality of unclassifiable events, such as for the acquisition of voting and / or purchase transactions in a rank different valuation classes as being valued by listeners lectures by the audience use their cards and the cards in a use specific, spatially marked card reader, and the positions of the card reader specific rating classes are assigned.
