Abstract

The system comprises sensors enabling parallel recording of all the necessary specific information, in addition to means for controlling fraud in the accounting circuits, which are connected to a microcomputer so that information is transmitted to a central computer by means of a modem, optionally a wireless modem. Said information is analyzed in the central computer where the decision is made whether a command (reset, alarm) should be sent to a connected machine. The connection between the machines and the central computer can be established through a normal or dedicated telephone line or digital mobile telephony. In the latter case, a system for sending messages SMS can also be used via the control channel. The system can also determine the exact location of each machine either owing to a GPS installed in the machine or by analyzing the identification data transmitted through the control channel. Information between the machines and the central computer can be encrypted and an error correcting and transmitted information confirmation system can also be set up.

Description

TITLE OF THE INVENTION

Title: System and geographical location fiscal control for machines that accept cash and credit cards.

PATENT REQUEST

DESCRIPTION

The invented figure (1) fiscal control system allows a plurality of machines that accept cash or credit cards or debit cards, with no limit on their number. Through specific sensors that allow first count parallel gross and net revenue in case of machines with prizes, media supported collection such as coins, paper money and electronic money, secondly detect tampering of the sensor circuits and the machine itself and third sensors that detect more or less approximate geographic location of the machine and using real-time or delayed one or more telecommunications systems operating data, tampering and position are sent to a or more remote offices where the results are interpreted, stored, processed and related to the licensing of the machine to which they belong and the company that exploits, allowing tax collection control remotely and automatically, without inspection visits.

TECHNICAL FIELD

The technical field to which this invention relates, is the tax control remote telecommunication media of any type of machine that accepts payment means cash or similar, whether coins and / or currency notes or issued privately, tokens or electronic means of payment, such as credit cards or debit cards that use the magnetic media or electronic memory.

They exist in the market varied types of machines that fall into this classification and describe some with divulgadora intention but never limited to the type of machine that falls within the classification set out accepting cash means of payment.

On one side you are also vending machines vending calls. The use of vending machines which could be defined as machines that sell products or provide a service to the user upon payment of an amount, originally conceived as a means to provide a service in places high turnout of people, has spread in developed countries to the high cost of labor; so today you can find these machines or a plurality of them in shopping centers, offices, gas stations, showrooms and Entertainment, competing effectively with hotel services.

Currently there are vending machines offering drinks, snacks, sandwiches, ice cream, fresh fries, serving newspapers, hot pizza, video store, laundry, photocopying, faxing, Internet connection, photos instantly, coffee, tea, soluble and derivatives, car wash, vacuum cleaners coin operated, print business cards, sell gasoline and derivatives, TV with pay-per currencies and in a broader sense can be considered vending machines also telephone booths where the right is obtained to make a called upon payment of an amount ATMs of banks where forward cash by charging a commission that is charged to the same card account and machines parking authorizing the departure of previous vehicle payment indicated rate.

On the other hand, there are slot machines. Spanish law currently exist machines type A which are amusement machines without prize, the B type, which are AWPs that can be installed in Catering and C type machines with prizes are only allowed in casinos.

In other countries where it can extend this patent are similar to those mentioned for the Spanish case classifications and type machines A are usually called machines skill and type B machines are called amusement with price or in acronym AWP, while type machines C , they are called casino.

The definition of these types of machines is extensive and informative and not limiting purposes, we will cite some embodiments that fall within the category. These types of machines can be designed to games of skill and can offer users one or more games, both through displays (CRT, plasma, LCD, TFT or the like) as those in which a game is provided where one or several balls or balls (pinballs, flippers, football, basketball) or those where the aim (darts, shooting pistols or similar) or those requiring player skill using levers (joysticks) exercise, as well as virtual reality machines or simulators. Also it included within the possible applications of the present invention use the jukebox machines popularly called slot jukeboxes that reproduce musical selections prepaid user, and child individual funfair type coin operated as horses Said recreational machines can reward or extra items or returning coins to the winners or giving away various products.

As for machines with prizes commonly called slot those machines will be understood included in the player by inserting coins or other means of payment such as card bills and credit cards and by choosing any combinations (numbers, letters, fruits, colors, or similar) receive cash prizes randomly by coin return in kind or electronic payment in other means of payment.

The problem of fiscal control of machines that accept cash is great because revenues are virtuaimente impossible to control.

STATE OF THE ART

Attempts to control the collection of gaming machines have passed through the lack of a reliable and inexpensive, it is difficult to handle and using a transmission medium to send information exploitation central control and remote inspection being then unnecessary inspection must each machine, which from a practical point of view it is impossible because only in Spain is estimated there are now about a million machines that accept such means of payment. On the other hand, the geographical dispersion makes the cost of an on-site inspection is unapproachable from the economic point of view for fiscal inspection.

In addition, the lack of a standard reading of data collection on machines that accept cash compel read data to inspect that are normally stored in the microprocessor memory machine with apparatus different reading, depending on the type of machine. There is another problem is that electromechanical meters that can be read by visual means can be easily manipulated by altering the wiring that sends signals to the counters so neither reliable visual reading is intended for the purpose of inspection.

There are also machines that accept cash for its simplicity work with acceptors means of electromechanical collection without electronic circuitry and lacking electronic controller unit microprocessor can not be audited without installing dual media posting electronic type, in this category They enter among many others such as: vending coffee and simplest type of attractions for young audiences individual use machines.

The aforementioned problem leads to Treasury departments in different states, nations and regional governments to different measures depending on the tax audit issues in these sectors, we enunciate some.

On the one hand, there are places where the impossibility of fiscal control has led to prohibit the use of AWPs as it does not exist in the current technology effective and inexpensive methods to exercise supervision without the mediation of a visit to the machine the place of exploitation. It is a situation known that this activity can be permitted in different states or nations if it is shown that there is a system as invented with the consequent benefit for both machine manufacturers to significantly expand their market to the operators of the same well to the Treasury.

On the other hand, the impossibility of controlling spot machines that accept cash leads the departments of Finance to impose licensing fees with flat rates whose amount is fixed and does not depend on the collection and therefore, the real benefit of machine. The steady rise of these normally payable in annual installments in advance flat rates has led some small operators in geographic areas with low population density to an exploitative situation in loss due to the lack of proportionality between the supported taxation and the actual revenue .

The invented system allows implement fairer taxation systems and proportionate to the revenue and profits, real and effective.

In addition, prize machines usually have by law the obligation to produce a minimum percentage of premiums paid, regarding charges accepted. Accounting by means of parallel means of payment accepted means of control and payment of prizes by a simple ratio allows finding the relationship between them and check if it complies with current legislation.

Finally, confederal Nations, federal or regional systems competencies in vending machines, recreational and game are usually transferred from central government to states, autonomous regions or local governments. If machines with licenses granted autonomy or state and therefore are paying to the Treasury in that tax demarcation move to neighboring geographical areas but already in another region or state so the case is given is given fraud regional government or state where the machine is located and where they are not paying taxes. This case may be common in those autonomies that have quotas to the number of licenses granted and therefore, new licenses are not issued despite the existence of demand for them by the exploiters, against the existing social demand. Therefore, a locating means enabling the machine is necessary without a site inspection to determine the approximate geographical location of the machine.

The inventors have not located any history of industrial property as a reference above the primitive state of the art, and described the issues raised here.

OBJECT OF THE INVENTION

The inventors have devised a system that can be manufactured at low cost mass so as to allow implementation in the relevant sectors.

A set of sensors is connected to means of collection admitted: the machine box small preferably metallic dimensions, including a circuit Antitamper or alarm box opening and containing the following functional blocks figure (2) is installed and means of payment of prizes, if they exist as in the case of machines with prizes. The sensors have two different functions, firstly recorded in parallel gross and net revenue of the machine and on the other by means of impedance sensing, generating a signal if any work on the wiring of both system sensors and charging circuits, accounting and payment of the machine themselves.

These sensors deliver signals that are recognized, stored and processed by a controller unit which in turn is connected to a modulator demodulator may employ different telecommunication means both physical line as by radio including in the latter definition modern paging systems , cellular telephony or private networks rad-oenlace such as trunking and its derivatives, including satellite systems.

Data collection and alarms fraudulent manipulation are sent to one or more remote stations, Figure (5), where the data are received, interpreted and stored such that they are associated with the tax license of the machine and the operator providing appropriate means to establish in the case of machines with prize award if the percentage of the total is within legal limits.

In addition, in the box you can install other sensors or subsystems for determining geographic location and send this information in addition to the collection and alarms so that the tax authorities can locate about the location of the machines.

To locate the approximate position of the automatic machine can be used including a GPS system using a simple low cost receiver receives accurate information about the geographical position can locate the normalized coordinates that can be transmitted at predetermined intervals or on each link caused for other reasons or generating an alarm when the machine moves over a predetermined distance. Another possible embodiment is to use information available communication channel broadcast or diffusion called BCCH GSM mobile telephone system, this embodiment will require the addition or use of a GSM wireless modem that also could be used as means of telecommunication given excellent coverage available in many countries. This modem interprets the identification of the base station that is connected which is unique in the GSM system and allows given the small coverage such repeaters or base stations, which is a few kilometers at most, determine where it is located approximately the automatic machine. The accuracy of this system may be sufficient to know in which region, state or autonomous government is operating and if within the tax regime which is paying the corresponding taxes and fees. The accuracy of this location system can be improved using techniques measures concerning radio field as described later, proposing a technical realization suggested.

The telecommunication system may employ different error correction protocols and acknowledgment of alarms and operating data of the machine under control.

The telecommunication system can also employ means of encrypting the data treating them so that their illegal interception can not create security issues. The encryption algorithm can be changed at will or by the system. The use of these systems by known algorithms for both error correction and confirmation as encryption through hardware and software technology is known and available in the market and although it is not essential to the invention can be used by any person skilled in the matter to improve the functionality, security, and reliability of the invention.

As sensors may be used optocouplers two states that isolate the circuitry of the machine control of the invented system. By optocouplers can be read pulse counters, both electronic and electromechanical both acceptance and payment of a means of payment or payment of a prize when there as reading means impedance can be both optocouplers employees of two states in series or parallel as proportional linear optocouplers for varying the output resistance of the device based on the variation of voltage / current and thus control the impedance of the circuit to which are connected without compromising performance because they offer galvanic isolation circuits . As storage media controller, ie, memory can be used any microprocessor inexpensive battery associated solid state memory can be RAM, EPROM or EEPROM among others. Today there are several manufacturers of integrated circuits that provide complete information to mount assemblies as described which have many inputs and / or digital and analog outputs available for connection to the above-described sensors. There are even plates and designed at very competitive prices that can be used to the intended purpose so the director would only have to Wire them to external devices and write a set of logical instructions that can be recorded in one of the memories of the microprocessor itself or in a external to operate the system. Integrated microprocessor circuits and industrial boards have in many cases one or more communications ports which can be used to be connected to a modulator demodulator or modem according to the means chosen transmission can be physical, i.e. galvanic or radio. Also on the market numerous integrated circuits or sets them to be used as a modem.

In addition to remote stations for collecting, storing and processing of data will need to have a modem equivalent and compatible to that previously described and connected to a computer which can be a platform based on an Intel-compatible PC type or higher capacity system as HP, SUN computers or mainframe, IBM or the like, depending on the amount of data to be processed. As operating systems could UNIX, Linux or Windows NT among other possible use.

DESCRIPTION OF A telecommunication system suggested. It is suggested among many other possibilities such as choosing a mode telecommunication suggested the use of SMS short message system GSM digital cellular system because it provides the following advantages:

The SMS system is supported by the broadcast channel also called diffusion of mobile phone standard pan-European GSM, this system allows you to send messages up to 160 characters without using the voice channel system and is therefore so rates for use are very economical.

Using a cellular system such as GSM, the broadcast channel or broadcast called BCCH in this system, the wireless modem receives information identifying number of the repeater or base station which is connected since the broadcast channel broadcasts it constantly in each frame this identification number is unique and therefore allows repeater know what and in what geographic location is providing coverage to GSM wireless modem. If several repeaters give coverage to GSM wireless modem simply you read data from all base stations in radio coverage to get an approximate location based on the radio field intensity received in each of them. Figure (4) shows an example of location where the machine is in the area of ​​base station B but also receives radio coverage from the A, C and D, the approximate position is found by a set of instructions logics in function relative intensities field a, B, C and D, calculated approximate geographic location equipment under Control
