Abstract

The present invention is intended for quickly and easily copying files from one device to another with the aid of a special 3D marker and 3D scanners, preferably installed on the devices in question. 3D scanners make it possible to determine the relative spatial position of a 3D marker. The proposed method makes it possible to transfer a file by pointing a 3D marker at a pictogram of the file on the screen of a first device and then pointing the 3D marker at the screen of a second device. The transfer process involves the use of special software, which is preinstalled on both devices, of various communication channels used by the devices and by the 3D marker, and also of a server, via which the direct transfer of a file from the first device to the second device is carried out.

Description

file transfer method Menedemos devices

using a 3D marker.

Description.

The invention relates to the field of computer engineering, in particular for a quick and easy copying and transfer of electronic files from one electronic device to another computing.

Various apparatuses and methods for copying and moving files from one electronic device to another. For example, widely adopted various removable media - from magnetic diskettes to optical disks and flash - drives.

The disadvantage of removable media for copying and file transfer is the need to physically connect a first device in one electronic device from which the copied file, and then to another electronic device on which the file should be moved. It requires electronic devices compatible drives for data storage media, which can take a considerable amount of space in an electronic device (this applies mainly optical drive). Recently, flash - drives are increasingly being used for copying and transferring files, because to connect to electronic devices do not require bulky actuators, and are connected to a small USB - ports. They have their flaws - usually inconvenient location of the USB - ports that frequent use often fail. In addition, the removable media may contain software viruses and computer security is necessary to spend time on the anti-virus scan of all files stored on removable media.

Due to the extensive introduction of local area networks and the global Internet network - files can be transferred from one electronic device to another directly through a network, such as through a local network by creating a public folder. Through a global network the Internet using e-mail or through a dedicated server in the form of cloud storage.

The disadvantage of these methods to copy and transfer file is that when using the local network - file transfer is performed only between the devices connected to the local network with preformed access rights to shared virtual folders. And when using the global Internet to transfer files requires a series of sequential actions, in particular - to run the mail program, manually enter the recipient's email address (if it is not in the address book), attachment to email the file and send the email. This method is inconvenient when people at the meeting want to quickly share information with a portable electronic device to another, especially if users are unfamiliar, such as what or event when

] Q presentation materials are in electronic form on the computer, then transfer them to the interested persons have to spend time to add each recipient in your address book for future mailings presentations files.

Furthermore, the present invention can be used for convenient

* Copy files from autonomous sources of information. For example, often there is a need for users to get more information about Gone product in a store or exhibit what they saw in the museum. For this two-dimensional codes are used today, such as QR - codes, which are applied to the object. And if in the electronic user device has a camera and a special application that allows you to recognize the two-dimensional code, it can take a picture of the code and using the application to convert the code into a hyperlink to a page on the Internet, where it can download files with detailed information about the object. The main drawback of this method - the need for the application of the two-dimensional code on the item 5 or exhibit, as well as compliance with the conditions under which the camera is able to get a clear image of the code, to ensure that the application failed to recognize it correctly. In particular need to consider the distance from the camera to the code arrangement angle without interference, Illumination. These conditions are often difficult to observe.

And also, there are occasions when some or files you want to transfer from the personal electronic device to another device that works without the participation of another user. If you want to move the file to another computer, which is for example connected to the projector or K5 printer or other device that does not have an operator. Accordingly, the transfer can be carried out either via removable media, or via a LAN connection, or through a direct connection to another device. All of these methods creates certain inconveniences for users.

Additionally, the present invention can be used for easy and secure interface electronic funds transfer between two devices using 3D marker, since electronic invoices and checks may be used as movable files. Such a method of electronic funds transfer is particularly useful when you want to quickly pay off in the store or at the gas station. In this case, unlike the NFC technology (Near Field Communication - near-field communication technology), also makes it quick and convenient to pay with electronic money between two devices - the proposed method is safe, as is being protected from eavesdropping.

The object of the present invention to provide a file transfer process from one device to another using a special 3D Marker few simple movements: direct 3D marker on the file icon on the screen of the first device, press a button on the 3D marker redirect 3D marker on the screen of the second device, and release the button . These movements should be sufficient to start the process of copying the file from the first device to the second. As 3D marker can be used in particular laser marker - invention application Ν »3013103309/09 (004,133). Its distinguishing feature is that the laser marker can be controlled by touching the screen, and at a considerable distance from the screen. Laser marker apparatus consists of a 3D scanner, which consists of the receiving device fixed on any monitor and 3D Marker emitting pre scattered laser beams in a special way. 3D scanner is connected to the computer is able to determine the spatial coordinates of the 3D marker, such as the distance to the screen and angles 3D marker position relative to the screen and transmit the data to the computer. Using software information about 3D spatial coordinates of the marker may be used, for example, a computer control, particularly for moving the cursor, etc .. In addition, the same 3D marker can be used on different screens, which are installed 3D scanners.

This object is achieved in that on the screen of the first device 1 (Figure 1) and the screen of the second device 2 are fixed 3D scanners 3, moreover, both devices are connected to the public network, in particular to the Internet and to the same network server is connected 4. In each of the devices installed special software to implement the file transfer process.

3D scanners 3 determine 3D spatial coordinates of the marker 5 and emitted therefrom laser rays. Y 5 has a 3D Marker pen 6 (Figure 2) and a special button 7. Furthermore, to solve this problem in 3D marker 5 and the first and second devices inserted additional means for wireless two-way communication. And supply the 3D marker 5 more

] Q RAM 8.

A method to transfer files between devices using 3D Marker 5 is carried out in several stages. In the first stage via 3D scanner 3, installed on the screen of the first device 1 calculates the coordinates of the virtual point in the area of ​​the screen, which is directed 3D Marker pen 6 5. In

1 5 the case enter a given point in the area of the screen in which is located a visual image file as an icon - waiting signal with 3D Marker 5 with a command to lock the file, which is sent by pressing a button on the 3D marker 7 5. Said signal is sent over a wireless 0 bidirectional communication established between the 3D marker 5 and the first device 1. This communication channel may be an optical, in particular IrDA protocol. In this case, the 3D set marker 5 IR port and a port mounted on the first and second devices or a 3D scanners, which are connected to first and second devices. Either two-way communication channel 5 is carried out by a short-range radio channel, in particular using the Bluetooth protocol. In this case, the Bluetooth controller and one antenna is mounted inside the 3D Marker 5 and other Bluetooth controllers and antennas are mounted in the first and second devices or 3D scanners, which are connected to first and second devices.

Upon receipt of said signal, which is sent by pressing a button 7, with the first device 1 sends a response signal to the 3D Marker 5 contains information about the network address of the first device 1 in the public network, in particular IP address of the first network device 1 also internet.5 in response signal includes information about the file, in which the icon was sent to the pen 6 3D marker 5 when you press a button 7. data on file in particular contain the following information: file name, file size, file path on the Arrange stve 1. Also, the response signal includes information on the network address of the server 4 in the public network to which the file will be sent to the above, in particular the server's IP address or domain name of the server on the Internet. The resulting information in the response signal is stored in the RAM 8 3D Marker 5.

In the second step, the user, holding the special button 7, directs the 3D Marker 5 toward the screen of the second device 2. Using 3D scanner 3, installed on the screen of the second device 2 is fixed spatial polozhenieZO marker 5 relative to the screen and the appearance and determine the coordinates of the virtual point of the screen area a second device, which is directed pen 6. And the second device 2 wirelessly send a signal to 3D marker 5 with a request for presence information to the file transfer. In 3D Marker 5 expect releasing a button 7. Once the user releases the dedicated button 7 - 3D to 5 fixed token and send this command to 3D Marker 5 into the second device 2 via a wireless communication channel a response signal, which contains information of the RAM 8. The above information is received at the second device 2. in the second device 2 forming request, which includes the information received from the main memory 8 of the network address of the first device 1, the data of the file. Additionally, the query includes the network address of the second device 2. The generated request is sent to the public network from a received memory 8 the information about the network server 4. If the address at the time of the special release button 7, the pen 6 has been directed beyond the second device 2 the screen, this The command is ignored and the file copy is canceled.

In the third step from said server 4 of the public network to the network address of the first device 1 sends a request for a file containing the data file and the file transmission start packet from the first device 1 to the server 4. The server 4 A file is forwarded to the second device 2 . file transfer can be made using any known data transmission protocol, including the use of encryption.

In the fourth step, the second device 2 of the data file, in particular to expand the file - form icon file and outputted on the screen of the second device 2, the visual image of the file to the coordinates on the screen, the virtual point, which was sent to the pen 6 at the time of release special button 7. If the file has not yet had time to fully boot to the second device, the visual image of the file - the icon may be marked in different colors, indicating the present status of the file. After copying the file information from the RAM 8 is removed.

The above technical result in special cases the specific implementation can be achieved by the fact that in addition to the use of public networks for the transmission and other communication channels may be involved file in

] 0 particularly Bluetooth, which may use the first and second devices, for transmitting information to the file server 4 passing directly from one device to another device. For this purpose, the signal sent from the first device 1 in the 3D Marker 5, enter information about the communication channels that are currently using a first device 1 and the network address of the first

^ 1 device in said communication channels and storing the received information in RAM 8 3D Marker 5. Accordingly, upon receipt of said information from the memory 8 to the second device 2 checks if any of the second apparatus of said communication channel 2. If this connection or there are several of them, then choose the most free and high-speed communication channel and via this communication channel on the received network addresses is performed automatically establishing communication between the first and second devices. The file is divided into packets and then perform batch file transfer. In case of rupture of the communication channel 5, or substantial deterioration of channel capacity due to the expiration of a complete file transfer, the first and second devices are automatically rearranged into another channel or to the public network via the server 4 until the total remaining file transfer packet.

In the particular case of the invention predusmatrivaetsya0

opportunity as a visual image file to use any material object, in particular commodity. In this case, use a shop window, on which you install 3D scanner 3. In other cases, implementation can be ispolzovat5 museum exhibits as a visual image file as the first screen of your device. Accordingly, in use museum stand, which is mounted on the 3D scanner 3. In both cases, the goods, and a museum piece can move inside the showcase or the stand, and in addition, one window can be located several kinds of item or items as a first unit screen. In addition, the user may be interested in the product or part of the exhibit. Therefore, to determine the relative coordinates of the goods or the exhibit, as well as parts of them used a photo or a video camera aimed at a showcase or stand and recognition program images. image recognition software configured to isolate from the resulting images a visual image, which is used as a product or piece or a part thereof, and to calculate the coordinates

I Q visual image arrangement with respect to the boundaries of the stand or showcases.

Thus, when a user send a 3D marker 5 in the side windows or stand on which is mounted 3D scanner 3 and presses a dedicated button 7 is at this moment fixed coordinates of virtual points, which directed the pen 6, and according to coordinates determine what goods or exhibit or

15 parts are in the specified area according to the latest data received pattern recognition software. Files corresponding visual images, which are used as a product or piece or part thereof stored in advance in the server 4. After the user redirects the 3D Marker 5 in the direction of the second device 2, and releases the dedicated button 7 starts transmission of the corresponding file from the server 4, the second device 2.

Another special case is a specific implementation of the interface transfer of electronic money between the first and second devices with 3D marker 5. This interface is of interest, since 5 allows you to simplify the translation of small amounts in this case, an electronic invoice and electronic check used as a portable file . First, in the first device 1, for example at the cash register, create email accounts, which include the account number for the adoption of electronic payment and the name of the receiving party - the payee and na0

the screen of the first device 1, there is a visual image to create an electronic invoice. It is directed 3D Marker pen 6 5 and 7 press the dedicated button - in this point from the first device 1 into the RAM 8 3D Marker 5 wirelessly transferred elektronnyy5 account. Once the user redirect 3D Marker pen 6 5 toward the second device 2 and sends a special button 7 - is transmitted from the electronic bill memory 8 to the second device 2 to _

wireless link. On the basis of this second device 2 of the electronic invoice is prepared electronic check, which include the account number for the adoption of electronic payment and the name of the host, the network address of the payment server, the payer's account number and the name of the paying party. Formed electronic check signed by the private key stored in the second memory device 2 and create a digital signature that is attached to the electronic check. Once electronic check digit is formed and signed a signature - on the screen vtorogo0 device appears a visual image formed by electronic check.

Then sent him the pen 6 3D marker 5 and push a special button 7

- electronic check is transmitted from the second device 2 in the RAM 8 3D Marker 5 wirelessly. Next, the user forwards the pen 6 3D Marker 5 in the direction of the first device 1 and otpustit5 J special button 7 - electronic check is transferred from the main memory 8 into the first device 1 wirelessly. And then, from the first device 1 sends an electronic receipt to the public network at the network address and the billing server on the basis of the electronic check is performed to transfer electronic accounts paying parties at the expense of the receiving party. As can be seen from the example for the transmission of electronic invoices and e-check is enough using a wireless communication channel, connects the 3D Marker 5 with both devices have been transmitted files occupy little resolution. Dlya5 extra protection of electronic payments by unauthorized actions of third parties additional support may be provided for: after receiving an electronic receipt in the payment server - form request file transfer confirmation and send it to the second device 2 and are awaiting a reply confirmation, and only after receiving a response confirmation to make electronic transfer. To confirm the response can be used of password or biometric authentication of the user.

In general, the invention can be practiced using known techniques and protocols for data transfer, in particular TSRLR, Bluetooth, IrDA, PPP. Although the present invention has been described with reference to certain embodiments thereof, those skilled in the art that other similar embodiments without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Therefore, the invention should be judged in terms of the claims.
