Auction system 1 0 of the present embodiment, the main auction system 1

2 configured (first competitive bidding device) and a sub-auction system 1 4 (second competitive bidding system) and the connection device 1 6. Hereinafter, that describes in detail the components.

The main auction device 1 2, as well as presenting the goods to be the auction of the target for the auction participants, perform the O one Kushiyon (competitive bidding) accepts bids from multiple participants. More specifically, the main auction system 1 2 includes an input terminal 1 0 0 provided for each of the plurality of participants are connected by a dedicated line, each of the plurality of participants, with the input terminal 1 0 0 and summer to be able to carry out the bid for the main Oak Chillon device 1 2 Te.

Input terminal 1 0 0, as shown in FIG. 3, and a keyboard 1 0 2 and the display 1 0 4 and Posusuitchi 1 0 6. The main auction system 1 2, before the O over Kushiyon begins, the information items to be auction of interest (including video), delivered to the input terminal 1 0 0 using satellite links, information of the product, It is displayed on the display 1 0 4 input terminal 1 0 0. That is, participants before auction that starts, by operating the keyboard 1◦ 2, to display the items to be auction of interest on the display 1 0 4, it is possible to perform preview of the product. After the start of the auction, participants, by pressing the tender board, which is provided to post switch 1 0 6 evening down 1 0 6 a, and summer so as to be able to carry out a tender to the main auction device 1 2. In other words, after the start of the auction, the bid price of the bidder who is currently the Serikatsu in the main Oak Chillon device 1 2 (hereinafter, the bid that wins Chi price) and, through the dedicated line, input terminal from the main auction device 1 2 is transmitted for 1 0 0 is displayed on the display 1 0 4. Participants in contrast to this, by pressing the above-mentioned bid button 1 0 6 a, can be determined promptly by using an bid at the bid price plus the bid unit price to Serikachi price that is displayed on the display 1 0 4. For example, Serikachi price is 1 0 0 yen, if the bid unit price is 3 0 0 0 yen, each time the bid button 1 0 6 a is pushed by one of the participants, Serikachi in the main auction device 1 2 the price will be going up auction by 3 0 0 0 yen. Here, the main auction system 1 2, because it detects the bids from the input terminal 1 0 0 in a very short period (e.g. 1 0 0 ms), immediately after the auction starts, Serikachi prices up bidding high speed go. In addition, the main auctions device 1 2, when state bid is not from any of the participants in a certain period of time has continued for or, at the time the bid price went up bidding to the desired price of the seller, the final bid Winning Price to determine the bid the bidder as a successful bidder a. With such a mechanism, such as when used car auctions, to determine the successful bidder from the start of the auction, there is a case where it only takes a few tens of seconds.

The main auction system 1 2 via the connection device 1 6, although accepting bids from bidders that Serikatsu in Sabuokushi Yon device 1 4 will be described in detail later.

Sub-auction system 1 4 is also, in the same manner as the main auction device 1 2, together with presenting the goods to be of oak Chillon for the auction of the participants, carried out the auction accepts bids from several of the participants. More particularly, Sabuo - Kushiyon device 1 4, an input terminal 1 0 0 provided with the plurality of participants are connected by a dedicated line, each of the plurality of participants, with the input terminal 1 0 0 and such One so as to be able to bid on sub auction system 1 2 Te.

Here, the sub-auction system 1 2 via the connection device 1 6, but to participate as a bidder a bidder that Serikatsu in the Sabuo one Kushiyon apparatus 1 2 in the main auction device 1 4 will be described in detail later.

Connection device 1 6 connects the main auction system 1 2 and the sub-auction system 1 4. More specifically, connecting device 1 6 determines a bid against the main auction system 1 2 on the basis of the bid price of bidders that Serikatsu Te sub auction system 1 4 smell, the main auction system in the bid to bid on 1 2. Here, in particular, the connection adapter 1 6, to the bid price of bidders are edged in the sub-auction system 1 4, based on the delay time of signal transmission from the sub-auction system 1 4 until the main oak into four device 1 2 by and the child adding a certain amount to be determined Te, to determine the bid price for the main auction device 1 2. More specifically, the main auction system 1 2 is a plurality of input terminals 1 0 0 bids from (depression of bidding button 1 0 6 a of post switch 1 0 6) 1 0 0 ms periodicity for detecting a sub from the auction system 1 4 main auction system 1 delay time of the round trip signal transmission up to 2 3 0 0 ms, if bid unit price in the main auction system 1 2 is a 3 0 0 0 yen, the sub-auction system 1 4 bidders, from bid to Sabuo one comb Yon device 1 4 until bidding on the main auction system 1 2 edged in the sub-auction system 1 4, up to 3 price Serikachi in the main auction system 1 2 0 0 $ 0 X 3 times, i.e., there is a possibility that increased 9 0 0 0 yen parsley, when the bid is being performed at a high frequency, participants participants sub auction system 1 4 is the main auction system 1 2 It is difficult to fight in person and equal. Wherein, the connection device 1 6, the relative bids bidders that Serikatsu in sub auction system 1 4 is the maximum increase amount of Serikachi price of the main auction apparatus 1 2 in the delay time of the signal transmission 9 by adding 0 0 0 yen determine the bid price for main auction system 1 2 performs a bid to Meino Kushiyon apparatus 1 2 in the bid.

In addition, the connection device 1 6, based on the bid price of the bidder that Serikatsu in the main auction device 1 2, participants in the sub-auction system 1 4 as the bid price of the bid who are nearly scored in the main auction device 1 2 determining the asking price of the order to be presented to, and notifies the asking price for the sub-auction system 1 4. Here, in particular, the connection adapter 1 6, to the bid price of bidders are competing Ri won the main auction system 1 2, the delay time of the signal transmitted from the main auction system 1 2 to sub auction system 1 4 by adding a certain amount which is determined on the basis of, determining the asking price. More specifically, Meino one comb Yon device 1 2 1 0 0 ms period for detecting the bids from the plurality of input terminals 1 0 0 round trip of the signal from the main auction system 1 4 until sub auction system 1 4 delay time is 3 0 0 ms of sending Den, when the bid unit price in the main auction device 1 2 is 3 0 0 0 yen, the main auction apparatus 1 Serikachi price of the participants of the sub-auction system 1 4 input in the 2 at the time of being presented on the display 1 0 4 of the terminal 1 0 0, price Serikachi in the main auction system 1 2 up 3 0 0 0 yen x 3 times, i.e., there is a possibility that up 9 0 0 0 yen parsley .従Tsu Te, in this case, the participants in the same time in a sub-auction apparatus 1 even if 4 be kicking receive the presentation of Serikachi 9 0 0 0 yen cheaper than the participants of the main No one Kushiyon device 1 2 Price now, when the bid is being carried out at a high frequency, the participants in the sub-auction system 1 4 fight comparable to the participants of the main auction device 1 2 is difficult. Therefore, the connection device 1 6, the main auction system 1 for bids bidders that Serikatsu in 2, above 9 is the maximum increase amount of Serikachi price of the main auction apparatus 1 2 in the delay time of the signal transmission 0 0 Te cowpea to the addition of $ 0.00 to determine the asking price to be presented to the participants of the sub-auction device 1 4, to notify the presented price for the sub-auction system 1 4.

The main auction system 1 2 for accepting the bid from the connection adapter 1 6, a bidder to perform bid directly from the input terminal 1 0 0 for the main fin auction system 1 2, the connecting device functions as a bidder 1 6 perform auction between the, among bidders including the connection device 1 6 is determined as a successful bidder a bidder that Serikatsu the main auction system 1 2.

Here, when the connecting device 1 6 in the main auction system 1 2 is One Do a successful bidder, the main auction system 1 2 notifies the Sabuokusho emission device 1 4 via a connecting device 1 6. In response to this notification, the sub-auction system 1 4, that determine a successful bidder a bidder having edged in the sub-auction system 1 4. Subsequently, it describes operations and effects of the auction system according to this embodiment. Auction system 1 0 of the present embodiment, not directly to bid on the main auction system 1 2 all bidders for the sub auction equipment 1 4, main only bidder that Serikatsu in sub auction system They are allowed to bid in the auction system 1 2. Therefore, it is possible to accept without much increasing the processing load of the main auction device 1 2, a bid from a large number of participants in a competitive bidding dividing line by the main auction device 1 2. As a result, use Chasse not auction system can be realized for many of the participants. For example, connected to the main auction device 1 2, and Sabuo Kushiyon device 1 4 having the same 1 0 0 0 people the ability to process the bid of the participants of that has the capability to process a bid of 1 0 0 0 participants and if you have configured the auction system 1 0, in 1 0 0 0 participants ability having only the main auction device 1 2 to process the bid, from the direct participants 9 9 9 people and the sub-auction system 1 4 a total of 1 9 9 9 people with participants 1 0 0 0 people it is possible to hold an auction to participate. You can also increase the number of sub-auction system 1 4 connected to the main auction system 1 2, by hierarchically connecting the sub-auction system 1 4, participants in the auction to be held in the main auction system 1 2 it is possible to increase indefinitely in theory a.

Also, the auction system 1 0 of the present embodiment is different from the bid bidder has Serikatsu in sub auction equipment 1 4, the delay of the signal transmission from the sub auction equipment 1 4 to the main auction system 1 2 by adding a certain amount that is determine on the basis of time, to determine a bid price for the main auction system 1 2, also with respect to the bid price of bidders that Serikatsu in the main auction system 1 2, the main auction system by adding a certain amount which is determined on the basis of 1 2 the delay time of signal transmission to the sub-auction system 1 4, determines the asking price to be presented to the participants in the sub-auction system 1 4. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the influence on the delay time of this the signal transmission auction. As a result, the auction system has Chasse use can be realized also for participants to participate from a remote location. Here, auction between the consumer who is performed via the Internet, many are of the order of several days to several weeks held period, may be a delay time of signal transmission is not a problem is almost. However, used Kurumao the opponent a used car dealer - such as Kushiyon, in the so-called business-toe business of auction, many cases would decided successful bidder in a few seconds to a few tens of seconds, the input by the delay of the transmission signal delay of the bill will be fatal. Thus, the auction system 1 0 of the present embodiment, such as the used car auction can very effectively applied to O one Kushiyon called business 'toe' business.
