Abstract

A GPS device for interacting with websites is presented. The device comprises an enclosure, a direct connection or a cable connection to a compatible computer, a GPS (global positioning system) receiver, chips, plates and other electronic devices such as resistors or capacitors. The device further uses a display to show the current GPS position of the device and a battery. When connected to a computer, the devices displays websites corresponding to the current GPS position of the device and location-specific searches for certain words or certain subjects (companies, public agencies, individuals, local businesses etc.) can be performed.

Description

GPS device for interacting with websites

This pioneer patent for utility model aims to create a device to be connected to a USB input, or equivalent, of a computer (or, as a plate into the computer) that will automatically receive and read the message sent / transmitted by the GPS satellite system through an internal receiver, indicating to the computer GPS position, according to latitude and longitude (north, south, east, west, degrees, minutes and seconds), in which the user of the device is, in order to connect it to sites that report to the region or micro region, all commercial and residential establishments, or any other kind of registered information in the same GPS position, that has been previously informed by whoever is interested to be accessed.

Nowadays, there are some satellite systems of location that use GPS signal to locate and track vehicles, graphic systems for maritime, aviation and land, security systems to locate mobile devices, systems to locate mobile stations and measurement systems. Even though there are several GPS location systems, all of them have specific application to be used, as described in the previous paragraph, but none of them is used as website search.

This device shall be used to locate sites or helping to refine websites search and location on the Internet, so that the user may restrict his search to the region or micro region where he is located at the moment of searching. This is possible if the position informed by the GPS device, object of this request, is coincident to the same position that was previously informed by anyone who is interested in being accessed in the website or in the website search. It is possible to use a keyword to perform any search and only access the GPS position sites reported by the device that has that keyword. For example, if it is used the word "restaurant" as a search, it will only appear on the screen the restaurants in GPS position informed by the device. Besides it is possible to make a zoom to increase or decrease the area to be explored.

This kind of searching allows restricting the number of selected sites to a specific region whenever a word is searched and, consequently, the number of pages that is found will be extremely reduced and more objective,differently from the current websites search that show thousands of pages whenever a word is searched. It should be added that the device itself will be able to create files with multiple GPS positions, which can be accessed and used for any other search outside the area where the user is. The attached drawings show some possible shapes and connections of the device, as follows:

Figure 1 shows the device connected directly to a USB connection

Figure 2 shows the device attached to a cable for USB connection or another type

Figure 3 shows the internal components

Figure 4 shows the device with display Figure 5 shows an internal plate

The device will consist of a GPS receiver signal; chips programmed with specific software; display that indicates the GPS position (optional); battery; connection cable to the computer or a USB, or another type, direct connection plug; plate for fixation of electronic components and enclosure for fixing and protection. (If it is internal to the computer - as in case of a plate -, display, battery, cable and enclosure are not needed.). The equipment/device shall have a small size like a pen-drive or a cell-phone, therefore it can be carried by the user to any place.

Claims

CLAIM
"Device for receiving the signal from the GPS (Global Position System) with loading data files to interact with the Websites", composed by an enclosure (1.3) and a direct connection (2) or a cable (4, 5) to be connected to an input of a compatible computer. This device has in its internal part a GPS signal receiver (6), chips (7), plates (11) and electronic devices (resistors, capacitors, etc..) (8).This device is characterized as an equipment that informs the GPS position to the computer. In turn, the computer uses this information to check websites that are in a coincident GPS position, previously informed by the one who wants to be accessed (companies, public agencies, individuals, businesses, NGOs, etc.). So, it is possible to implement the search from using certain words or certain subjects so that the results will be restricted to a region or a micro region and the number of web pages will be also limited, according to the user's interest. Nowadays, websites search show thousands of useless web pages. Besides it is possible to make a zoom to increase or decrease the area to be explored. It should be added that the device itself will be able to create files with multiple GPS positions, which can be accessed and used for any other search outside the area where the user is. This device should still be equipped with a compatible software in order to provide the exchange of appropriate information and appropriate data. It is possible the device uses a display (10) to inform autonomously the GPS position. In this case, the device must be provided with battery (9).
