Description

[Revision 18.01.2017] according to Rule 91

The present invention relates to a geofence-based designated area automatic guidance system of various forms having an internal and external buffer zone.

According to the KT Economic Research Institute, as of March 2016, more than 80% of smartphones were distributed in Korea (91%) and 12 other countries. Smartphones have become an essential item for modern people and are evolving into total entertainment devices. have.

Recently, efforts have been made to implement a service that provides related information when a user carrying a mobile device approaches a virtual boundary by setting a virtual boundary for a designated region on a digital map. Geofence is a combination of the prefix 'geo' which means 'earth, soil', etc., and 'fence' which means fence. perimeter for a real-world). The geofence is a space of a radius of 100m around a specific point, and a predetermined area acts as a geofence. Geofencing is etymologically a combination of geographic and fencing. It is an API (Application Programming Interface) technology that informs a user whether to carry or enter a mobile device in a fence geographically. This is an interface using GPS (Global Positioning System), which is one of the location tracking technologies. When a virtual fence called geofence is set through GPS, the mobile device is carried in the geofence area. It is the role of geofencing to notify you when a user enters or leaves.

Location-Based Service (LBS), which automatically guides using digital maps and geofences, uses Google and Apple's Geofencing Application Programming Interface (API) technology. This centers around GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude) and uses a circular and uniform polygon geofence with a constant length radius. However, general location-based services do not fully reflect the surrounding topographical structure, and commercial GPS signals do not have structural factors (e.g., satellite time error, satellite location error, ionospheric and convective refraction, noise, multipath, etc.). ) And geometrical factors depending on the satellite's deployment situation (Selective Availability) and 95% chance of error up to 100m due to deliberate insertion of satellites in order to prevent unauthorized users from achieving accuracy within certain limits. Error). Therefore, when a user who carries a mobile device is located at the edge of a geofence of a facility, the location information of the user is displayed as moving frequently inside and outside the geofence, which implies that it is difficult to provide accurate location-based services. have.

In addition, communication between objects has been actively performed due to the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, Bluetooth communication, Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, and Beacon technology. Near field communication (NFC) NFC tag is installed in a facility or facility in a designated area, and the information is received only when the user carrying the mobile device approaches the NFC tag, and the detailed information is downloaded from the web server system. Receive the relevant information. However, the information system that combines geofencing technology and IoT technology has to be inconvenient to install NFC tags or beacons at a cost in advance, and to have continuous maintenance in the future. In addition, by allowing a user carrying a mobile device to use a mobile communication network, when the mobile device accesses a web server system and downloads a picture, a virtual reality video, and a description, the web server system may be overloaded. In addition, when a large number of mobile devices are connected to the mobile communication network in a specific time period, if the up-link and down-link increase rapidly, it may cause an instantaneous failure of the mobile communication network. In addition, a user carrying a mobile device has a problem in that data communication costs, in particular, excessive data communication costs due to data roaming services are used when a foreigner uses them. In addition, checking visual information while walking text information along with photos and virtual reality videos may not respond appropriately to the surrounding sudden situation, causing serious safety accidents, and providing information in multiple languages. In addition, the geofencing API (Geofencing Application Programming Interface) provided by Google and Apple can set only a simple circular and polygonal structure with a radius of a specific length centered on GPS coordinates. Or, it is difficult to accurately perform location-based guidance that reflects the geographical structure in which the facility is located.

In addition, the designated area internal virtual path registration function 2500 stores the designated area virtual information database 124 of the database management unit 120 through the designated area virtual information management module 114 of the information management unit 110. In more detail, the geofence setting function 2300 of the facility or facility inside the designated area may inquire (2301) the name of the facility or facility, a picture, a virtual reality video, and GPS coordinate information to determine the necessity of the layered configuration. Perform the shortest distance extraction function (2307) between GPS coordinates, and if necessary, determine a facility or facility to be stratified (2302), and extract the shortest distance between GPS coordinates of the facility or facility to be stratified (2303). A radius length for each GPS coordinate in the object is determined (2304), a GPS coordinate and a radius length to be the center point of the layering configuration are determined (2305), and registered as a layering facility or facility (2306). When the stratification is completed, the shortest distance between GPS coordinates of the facility or facility (including the layered facility or facility) in the designated area is extracted (2307) to determine the radius length of the facility or facility (2308). For each facility or facility, the geofence type is determined in consideration of the surrounding topography, and if it is elliptical, the focal point having the radius length determined based on the center point as the positive and negative directions of the x-axis is determined (2310). Here, the circumference of the inner oval is determined with reference to a of FIG. For points of interest that require a geofence in the form of a facility or both ends of the facility, determine the direction of the buffered zone (2311). If the shape of the geofence is a right triangle, the circular circumference of the point of interest is determined using the determined radius length, and an arbitrary point is determined (2312). If the geofence has a rectangular shape, the diagonal length is determined (2313), and four points on the GPS coordinates are determined (2314). If the geofence type is pentagonal, the GPS coordinates (O value) and the radius using C, D, and E values are determined (2315) with reference to b of FIG. (2316). Subsequently, the width of the buffered zone is determined by determining the inner boundary, the inner buffer zone, the outer buffer zone, and the outer boundary line (2317), and the geo-fence for each GPS coordinate is set (2318). In order to determine the geofence of a designated area, the maximum and minimum values of latitude and longitude of grouped facilities or facilities and individual facilities or facilities are extracted (2319), and the inner boundary, the inner buffer zone, the outer buffer zone, and the outer boundary line The designated area geofence is set (2320).

For reference, the current Google-fencing geofencing API can only set circular and simple polygon geofences centering on specific GPS coordinate values and radiuses of specific distances. Not supported In order to solve this problem, the present invention provides a geofence setting function in a form of atypical and atypical circles, ovals, atypical and atypical polygons, and open at both ends. In addition, if the user's mobile device is located at the edge of the geofence due to the serious problem of the current location based service (LBS), the user's location is changed inside or outside the geofence due to the error of the GPS. It is shown as moving from time to time is difficult to accurately guide. However, in order to solve this problem, the present invention simultaneously provides a function of setting various types of geofences and a function of setting a buffer zone as shown in FIG. 5. Specifically, the geofence setting method of the present invention, the outer boundary line 311, the outer buffer zone 312, the geofence 313, the inner buffer zone 314, the inner boundary line 315 of the facility or the geofence If the user terminal is located at the edge of the GPS (satellite navigation device) due to the error of the user's location is displayed to move in and out of the geofence from time to time to solve the difficulty of accurate guidance. To this end, multi-level stratification is possible for facilities or facilities in designated areas. The stratification of a designated area is represented as Level 1 or Grandparent (300), Level 2 or Parent (301), Level 3 or Child (302), Level 4 or Grandson (303). This is because, as shown in Fig. 7a and 7b, the view by resource of the designated area can be layered into level 4, but the view-by-special course view b to be guided must be configured to level 5 to set up a systematic setting to enable effective guidance.
