Description

 Safety and tracking device

The invention relates to a positioning system or to a locating device with transmitting and receiving function for determining the position of a movable object. The system has essential components of a so-called smartphone, in particular a receiver for a satellite-based navigation system (GPS), a transceiver for HF telephone networks and a control circuit which is connected to the receiver and the transceiver. Via the satellite-based navigation system, the positioning system receives data about the current location, ie the current position of the device. The RF transceiver is in contact with common cellular telephone networks, e.g.

850/900/1800/1900 MHz and can send data about the found position, which can then be received by other stations or received from other stations. The data sent is, for example, data about the current position, about the state of the locating device, etc., which can then be received by other stations. The received data are, for example, commands to the tracking device, for example, to provide position information, to assume a particular operating state, to provide information about the state of the power supply, etc. For voice communication, the RF transceiver (30) is not employed herein is a difference to a smartphone. In practice, such positioning systems are used, for example, for securing motor vehicles, for securing bags or suitcases, for securing valuables of all kinds, for securing animals and children, etc. Thus, a user who has arranged the tracking system, for example, in his trunk, locate this case anytime. A message can be issued automatically by the location system as soon as it is outside a previously defined virtual fence (geofence). A dog can carry the tracking system on his collar, so that his location can be tracked at any time. From EP 2 241 904 AI a location system is known which has essential features of the present invention. To save energy, the Locating means, in particular the receiver for a satellite-based navigation system specifically switched on and off. This shows that a problem of locating systems lies in the limited capacity of the power supply, in particular of a rechargeable battery.

From DE 10 2010 062 189 AI a location system is known, which describes a special design of the antenna.

From DE 196 45 209 B4 a locating device for a motor vehicle is known, while the direction of travel is calculated by the Doppler method. A similar device is also known from EP 496 538 Bl.

A personal tracker device is known from GB 2517668 A. The device serves to be able to transmit an SOS signal in the event of an emergency.A locating system is known from US Pat. No. 8,659,420 B2, the AGPS, GPS, GSM, CDMA, LTE , EVDO, Bluetooth (Registered Trademark) and TDMA technologies.) The invention also utilizes at least some of these technologies

2010/0035630 AI is a system and a method for determining the position of a positioning system, as the invention has the goal described. The locating can be carried out according to this method. Finally, from WO 2016/102977 AI a location system with a power supply unit known. The location system is essentially constructed as the device according to the invention. It has a GPS module, a GSM module for data exchange and a motion sensor. As a motion sensor usually a gyro module is used, as it can also be used for the invention. It is also referred to as an inertial navigation system. These are gyro or corresponding motion sensors, with the help of which it is possible to calculate the spatial movement of the device without external GPS signals. In particular, in case of loss of satellite signals such a position determination is still possible.

Locating systems of the type in question should be as small and unobtrusive as possible. Small they should be, so that they can be carried comfortably by small animals and the like. They should be inconspicuous because their proximity to a smartphone with which they have much in common need not be immediately recognizable. They should be mechanically robust, not too high For example, the total weight should be less than 40 g, they should be as easy to use as possible, be sufficiently protected against dust, moisture and liquids, be used worldwide and have an operating life of at least a few days. A low weight is contrary to the operating time, the weight is usually determined by the accumulator whose size and in particular weight but in turn affects the weight of the device.

On this basis, it is the object of the invention to further develop a locating system in such a way that its housing can be made as complete as possible, that is as far as possible has no more or less sealed openings, holes, operating keys, flaps for an accumulator exchange or the like. On the other hand, such a sealed housing must allow radio waves to be received and transmitted, to allow charging of the battery and also to give a signal to a user in some form, the user detecting this signal without any further technical aids and directly with his senses can. The user needs further technical aids, in particular a smartphone, in order to communicate with the location system in the HF range; he needs an additional device in order to be able to transfer energy into the induction coil. Irrespective of this, a signal without technical aids must be detectable from the closed housing.

This object is achieved by a tracking system (Tracker) for Positionsbe mood a moving object, with a) a hermetically sealed housing consisting of an upper shell and a lower shell, which are welded together along a closed circumferential contact surface, the surface of the housing exclusively by the material of the upper shell and the lower shell is determined, with b) a board, which is held in the housing and a receiver for a satellite-based navigation system, a transceiver for HF telephone networks, a light-emitting diode and a control circuit connected to the receiver, the upper shell has an optical waveguide which is connected at one end to the upper shell and opens into a light-transmissive region of the upper shell and at the other end is in the immediate vicinity of the light-emitting diode, and with c) one inductive en loader, the an induction coil, which is located in the immediate vicinity of a bottom of the lower shell, and with an accumulator for the power supply of the positioning system, which is connected to the charging device. The advantage of this location system is that its housing is completely closed. By welding the upper shell and lower shell, a tight weld has been created all around, thus the housing is hermetically sealed. The housing is waterproof. It is electric in the

Class of protection IP 67 and possibly higher.

A user controls the location system by means of his smartphone or other suitable device enabling data exchange over RF telephone networks. The user receives information about the status of the device directly via the LED. Their light is visible through the sufficiently transparent formed housing. Preferably, a tricolor LED is used. Different information can be communicated via the individual colors. Via the light emitting diode, data transmission from the device to the outside may also take place, for example the device may receive information from its GSM module, e.g. the IMEI, in form coded by Lichtbiitze send out, if he had been sent before a corresponding control command over the radio network.

The light of the LED is directed through the light guide, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the light emitting diode, to the wall of the upper shell, where there is a translucent area, at least part of the light penetrates this area and can be detected by the user.

Through the induction coil of the accumulator can be charged. Even with a defective accumulator, the device receives sufficient voltage via a charging station to function. The induction coil is not visible from the outside, it is located only inside the housing.

Radio waves reach the device and are emitted by it via at least two antennas, one antenna is provided for the receiver of the satellite-supported navigation system and another antenna is provided for the transceiver for HF telephone networks. Both antennas are advantageously on one Foil arranged, in particular next to each other. This film is located near an inner wall of the upper shell. It is fixed there in such a way that it does not shift even during strong movements of the locating system (of the device), but retains its place.

The induction coil is located in the immediate vicinity of a bottom of the lower shell.

Altogether the locating system can thus use the optical signals of the

Light emitting diode, communicate with the outside world via the two high-frequency connections and via the induction coil. All this is possible with completely enclosed housing. The housing is preferably made of a plastic. It has no openings, flaps, passages, etc., through which dust, water or the like could penetrate. Any communication between the alignment system and the outside world takes place through the closed shell of the housing.

The two shells of the housing are preferably connected to each other by ultrasonic welding. The case can not be opened without being destroyed. If replacement of the battery is necessary, the case is broken, a new battery is inserted, a new case is used. The housing preferably has a labeling field for individual data, this is located on the outside bottom of the bottom shell, it is printed in each case with the data that identify the individual locating device.

The location system uses an embedded SIM card that is globally valid. It is an integral part of the device. It does not have to be used, it is preferably fixedly mounted on the board, in particular soldered.

Further advantages and features of the invention will become apparent from the other claims and from the following description of a non-limiting embodiment of the invention, which will be explained in more detail below with reference to the drawings. In this drawing show: 1 is a perspective view of the locating system, shown is the closed housing, including the board and the antennas, which are all located within the housing with housing and board,

 2 is a perspective view similar to Figure 1 and with a similar view, the housing is partially cut to make a part of the board visible, the LED is active,

 3 is a perspective view with a view from below, the housing is partially cut, the view goes on a foil antenna and on an accumulator,

Fig. 4 is a side view of the empty housing, partially cut away to show the connection of the upper shell and lower shell, and

 Fig. 5: a perspective view with a view from below and as shown in FIG. 3, but now with the housing closed. The locating system has a hermetically sealed housing, which consists of two and only two parts, namely an upper shell 20 and a lower shell 22. Both are about 65 mm long and about 30 mm wide. They have a wall thickness of typically 2-3 mm. They define a cavity of approx. 25 mm clear height. Upper shell 20 and lower shell 22 are made of the same material, namely a thermoplastic. By ultrasonic welding they are welded together along a connecting line 24. The surfaces of both shells 20, 22 are determined solely by the material from which they are made. The surface of both shells 22 is not interrupted by any openings, passages, keys, flaps or the like. It is completely consistent.

The once welded along the connecting line 24 housing can not be opened nondestructively. To get into the case, you have to disturb the case. The case is only available from the original manufacturer, making it difficult to imitate.

In the housing, a board 26 is housed. It accommodates all electronic components, in particular a receiver 28 for a satellite-assisted navigation system, a transceiver 30 for data transmission in HF telephone networks, a light-emitting diode 32 and a control circuit 34. The circuit board 26 is equipped on both sides. On its underside is u. a. Soldered an embedded SIM card, it applies worldwide and for multiple network operators.

In addition, an inertial navigation system is arranged on the board 26, which operates, for example, with gyros and makes it possible to perform a position determination in case of loss of the satellite signal. The above-mentioned components are also found in today's smartphones, insofar reference is made to their technique. In the housing, a film 36 is further housed, on which both the antenna for the receiver 28 and the antenna for the transceiver 30 is located. The film 36 passes directly from one narrow side of the board 26 and is electrically and mechanically connected with this, in particular the Fo ¬ lie 36 is a layer of the board 26. The film 36 has 60-80% of the length of the board 26. It is it is very thin and can be easily bent, it is elastic, it always takes after stretching a stretched shape. At the free end of this film 36, two holes 38 are formed. From the inside of the upper shell 20, two projections 40 project. Each projection 40 is fitted to a hole 38, the hole 38 fits over the projection 40. During assembly, the film 36 is positioned with its holes 38 over the projections 40, see arrows 41. The position then reached is secured by a fuse 42, for example, by heating and widening the projections 40 so that they thicken, or an over-pushed clamping ring. If the housing has been destroyed, the fuse 42 may be destroyed or removed. The film 36 can then be removed unchanged and used in a new housing. Due to the resilient properties of the film 36 is located on this in together ¬ mengebauten state at the inside surface of the upper shell 20th Here, the film 36 is bent back starting from the board 26 U-shaped, so that it runs almost parallel to the board 26 in its free end. This allows the board 26 to extend over approximately 80% of the free inside length of the housing. There is still a second film 44 disposed on the other narrow side of the board 26, also it is provided with an antenna. This is used as a replacement and is not normally needed. The bent-back foil 36 has a free distance of at least 5 mm from the populated board 26, as a result of which the antennas are not influenced too much by the components, the board 26 and so on. Directly below the board 26 is an accumulator 46. It is connected via a plug connection with the circuit board 26. Under this accumulator 46, an insulator layer 47 is fixed, on the outside of which an induction coil 48 is located. Both of its connections are connected to the board 26. On the board 26 is a module for battery management. In the assembled state, the induction coil 48 is in the immediate vicinity, preferably in contact with the inner surface of the lower shell 22.

The light-emitting diode 32 is arranged on the top of the board 26, almost exactly in the middle of the board 26, it radiates upward, transversely to the board 26. Directly above it is a light guide 52, designed here as a pipe and is formed in one piece with the upper shell 20. Where it passes into the upper shell 42, the material of the upper shell 20 is on the one hand transparent and on the other hand thin, so that the light of the light emitting diode 32 penetrates the wall of the upper shell 20 at this point. Seen from the outside of the upper shell 20, the light guide 52 is not recognizable, it does not interrupt the smooth surface, it is only on the inside of the upper shell 20. When the light-emitting diode 32 is not active, the light guide 52 remains invisible from the outside and on the outer surface of the upper shell 20 no difference to other areas of this outer surface can be seen. When the light-emitting diode 32 is active, see FIG. 2, only one spot 50 on the outer surface, which is delimited by the inner dimensions of the light guide 52, shines. The light guide 52 is located so close to the light emitting diode 32 that virtually all of this emitted light enters only the light guide 52, in any case more than 95% occurs. This ensures that the light of the light-emitting diode 32 only makes itself noticeable as a small, precisely defined spot 50 from the outside.

The film 36 has in the immediate vicinity of the two holes 38 has a through hole 54 which is adapted to the light guide 52 and this accommodates perfect fit. The holes 38 also receive their projections 40 as accurately as possible. At least one shell has support members 56 for the board 26. These hold the board 26 in the longitudinal direction or in the transverse direction or in the height direction. Preferably, the lower shell 22 has at its longitudinal ends projecting supports 58, which define a free distance corresponding to the length of the accumulator 46. In this way, the accumulator 46 is fixed in the longitudinal direction.

The underside of the outer surface of the lower shell is used as a labeling field 60 on it are characteristic features of the individual positioning system imprinted. At least part of the pressure is individually adapted to the respective system, the individual data is processed by the control circuit 34 and sent out via the light emitting diode 32 to the outside, as soon as the control circuit 34 is given a corresponding command. The control circuit 34 has a Niikrocontroller. The control circuit 34 receives on request from the receiver 28 and optionally from the inertial navigation system information about the current location. It forwards this information via the transceiver 30 to the outside, provided that a corresponding Pro ¬ program command, for example, by geofence is present, or a query from the outside is received. The control circuit 34 is also responsible for the transmission function of the transceiver 30 being blocked under certain circumstances, at least for a predetermined period of time z, for example, after automatically detecting that the location system is in an aircraft. Reference is made to the German patent application 10 2016 117 296.0 of the same applicant and of the same day, the disclosure of which fully belongs to the disclosure of the present application.

The location system is self-sufficient and is used for determining the position of a bewegli ¬ chen object. It has a housing which has an upper shell 20 and a lower shell 22. A circuit board 26 is housed in the housing and receives a receiver 28 for a satellite-based navigation system, a transceiver 30 for data transmission over HF telephone networks, a light emitting diode 32, 50 and a control circuit 34 which communicates with the receiver 28, the transceiver 30 and the LED 32, 50 is connected. Adjacent to one another on a foil 36, an antenna is arranged in each case for the receiver 28 and for the transceiver 30. The film 36 has at least one hole 38 at a free end. On an inner side of the upper shell 20, at least one projection 40 protrudes inward, which is opposite to the board 26, which is adapted to the hole 38 and which is inserted through the hole 38. A fuse 42 prevents inadvertent release of the film 36, 44 from the projection 40. The projection 40 is located between the board 26 and the upper shell 20. The film 36 has at its free end a distance of several millimeters from the assembled board 26. A Inductive charging device has an induction coil 48 and is connected to an accumulator 46 for the power supply of the positioning system.

The tracking system tracker is used to determine the position of a moving object. It has a hermetically sealed housing consisting of an upper shell 20 and a lower shell 22, which are welded together along a closed circumferential contact surface. The surface of the housing is determined solely by the material of the upper shell 20 and the lower shell 22. A circuit board 26 held within the housing houses a satellite navigation system receiver 28, a radio telephone network transceiver 30, a light emitting diode 32, and a control circuit 34 coupled to the receiver 28, transceiver 30, and light emitting diode 32 , on. The upper shell 20 has a light guide 52, which is connected at one end to the upper shell 20 and opens in a light-permeable region of the upper shell 20 and at the other end is in the immediate vicinity of the light emitting diode 32. An inductive charging device has an induction coil 48, which is located in the immediate vicinity of a bottom of the lower shell 22. An accumulator 46 for the power supply of the positioning system is connected to the charging device.
