Location information may also include time indicating when it was installed, information about the last known location for the mobile object. The user can refer to it time to get more information to understand where they could be abandoned or dropped movable object.

Figure 1 is a diagram illustrating a network 10 of a wireless communication network (10), which supports communication, which can be used by the mobile terminal 20 according to the present invention. Network 10 typically used to provide users with connection for voice and data, using, for example, the above standards. According to figure 1, the mobile terminal 20 can communicate with each other through a switching center mobile phones (Mobile Telephone Switching Center (MTSC). The mobile terminal 20 can also communicate with other terminals, such as terminals 26, 28, through the public switched telephone network of General use (PSTN) 4, which is connected to the network 10. As shown in figure 1, MTSC 15 is also connected to the server 135 via the network 130, such as the Internet. The server can be used to serve web pages, including the table of location information, according to some variants of the implementation of this izopet the deposits.

The network 10 is organized as a cell 1-2, which together can provide service in a geographic region. In particular, each of the cells can provide the service in the associated sub-regions included in the geographic region covered by the network 10. The network 10 may include more or fewer cells, and the coverage area of the cells may overlap. Each cell may include an associated base station 30A-b. The base station 30a-b can provide wireless communication between each other and the mobile terminal 20 in the associated geographic region, in order to allow communication between them.

Each of the base stations 30a-b can transmit/receive data to/from the mobile terminal 20 via an associated control channel. For example, the base station 30a in the cell 1 can communicate with the mobile terminal 20A through the channel 22A control. Channel 22A control can be used, for example, to direct a call to the mobile terminal 20A in response to directed at him a call or to transfer destination channel traffic in a mobile terminal 20A through which must pass the associated call. The channels 22 of the control can be identified using numbers or identifiers of the control channels. For example, the mobile terminal 20A can store the channel number that identificirebul 22A of the control as the control channel, he works at the present time.

The mobile terminal 20 may also receive messages from the network 10 through the corresponding channel 22 management. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the mobile terminals receive messages in the format of short message service (Short Message Service, SMS) or enhanced message service (Enhanced Message Service, EMS), services, multimedia messages (Multimedia Message Service, MMS) and/or in the format SmartmessagingTM.

The GPS system 174 can provide GPS information in a geographic region that includes cell 1-2, so that the mobile terminal 20 may determine the location information. Location information can be applied to the identification information accepted by the mobile terminal from the RFID tag to update the location of moving objects, which are connected with the RFID tag. As described in more detail below, the network 10 may also provide information about the location of the network as a basis for location information used by the mobile terminal.

Figure 2 is a block diagram that illustrates embodiments of a mobile terminal 20 according to the present invention. As illustrated in figure 2, the mobile terminal 20 includes a circuit 242 transceiver, which operates to peredavat and to receive signals at a radio frequency communication network 10 through the antenna system 246. Antenna system 246 may include the structure of the antenna feeder and one or more antennas.

Specialists in the art it is well known that the transmitting part of the transceiver 242 converts the information to be transmitted to the mobile terminal 20, the electromagnetic signals suitable for radio communications. The receiver part of the transceiver 242 demodulates electromagnetic signals, which are received by the mobile terminal 20 from the network 10 to provide contained in the signal information in a user-friendly format.

The user interface 244 of the mobile terminal 20 may include various components such as a display 254, a keypad 252, speaker 256, and a microphone 250, the principle of which is known to specialists in this field of technology. It is obvious that the functions of the keyboard 252 and the display 254 may be provided through the touch screen through which the user can view information such as the display on your computer documents, to provide him glands and otherwise control the mobile terminal 20. Well-versed in the art it is obvious that displayed on the computer documents (or web pages) can represent, for example, hypertext documents, which may include text, images, p is La to enter, fields for output and many other objects.

Circuit 251 processor provides the overall operation of the mobile terminal 20, including coordination of the communications circuit 242 transceiver, the user interface 244, and other components included in the mobile terminal 20. For example, the schema 251 processor may provide the communication signals in the circuit 242 transceiver when the user speaks into the microphone 250, and receive the communication signals from the transceiver 242 to play sound through the speaker 256. Circuit 251 processor may generate symbols for display on the display 254. For example, the schema 251 processor can generate digits to display when the user enters the phone number through the keypad 252. Characters can also be generated by the generation scheme of symbols, which are not shown.

Circuit 251 processor can be implemented with many variations of hardware and software. For example, the operation circuit 251 processor can be implemented using hardware of a special purpose, such as specialized integrated circuits and programmable logic devices such as gate arrays, and/or software or firmware in ROM software running on a computing device, such the AK microprocessor, the microcontroller or digital signal processor. Circuit 251 processor can provide the operation of digital signal processing, such as scan to determine an acceptable control channel, the control channel (including maintaining synchronization with the base station, which communicates with the mobile terminal 20), voice dialing, perform the operations associated with the transmission medium, etc.

The mobile terminal includes a circuit 265 interface radio frequency identification (RFID), which transmits signals to the RFID tag in the RFID tag, and may periodically receive information about the identification (ID)that uniquely identifies the RFID tag connected with moving objects. RFID refers to the use of radio frequency signals to read information stored in small devices, which are sometimes referred to as "RFID tag". Label can be attached to moving objects and may be of any shape/size with which it can be integrated in/on a movable object. Moving objects can be wallets, keys, mobile phones, clothes, cars, and moving objects can even be embedded in ink, printed, for example, on paper. Other movable objects can also contain a RFID tag.

Information stored in the tag can in order to be information about the identification (ID), which can uniquely identify the mobile object associated with the label. For example, two different moving object can have corresponding markings, each of which stores a variety of information about ID, which can be used by the mobile terminals to distinguish two movable object. It is obvious that the circuit 265 RFID interface includes an RFID antenna (not shown)through which are transmitted/received RFID signals. The RFID antenna can be included in the antenna system 246, or may be a separate structure (internal or external). The mobile terminal 20 may also include a label 215 RFID, which includes information about ID, which uniquely identifies the mobile terminal 20 (as a movable object according to some variants of implementation of the present invention).

In the process, information about the ID stored in the RFID tag can be read by passing from the circuit 265 interface RFID radio frequency (RF) signal, which energizes the antenna associated with the tag if the tag is in zone coverage schemes 265 RFID interface. After energy label passes the RFID signal, which includes information about the ID stored in the tag using the scheme of the transmitter label. It is obvious that the energy transmitted to the antenna of the label, can be used to supply power scheme plumage is of Attica labels and auxiliary circuits, used label for transmission. Accordingly, the label may not require a battery or other built-in power supply, and such labels are sometimes referred to as passive RFID tags. Scheme 265 interface RFID can take the RFID signal transmitted label (if it is in the coverage area of the transmitter tag), which includes information about ID, which uniquely identifies the mobile object. Additionally, the description of the RFID tag can be found on the Internet at the address idtechex.com/pdfs/en/O7289Z3822.pdf, which is incorporated herein by reference.

The mobile terminal 20 includes circuit 260 location, which is configured to determine location information for a mobile object on the basis of information about ID, adopted from a moving object through a scheme 265 RFID interface. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the circuit 260 location is a GPS location, which includes a diagram of the GPS receiver, which uses, for example, any available approach for determining the location based on GPS or assisted-GPS in combination with satellite 274 GPS. Such approaches are generally referred to as system assisted-GPS, which is defined, for example, in the specification 3GPP TS 04.31, 3GPP TS 03.71 and 3GPP TS 04.35. Approaches assited GPS also described is, for example, in U.S. patentsâ„–â„–4445118; 5418538; 5663734; 5663735; 6433735, and in published patent application U.S. No. US 2003/0011511 A1, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.

In some alternative embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the circuit 260 location is a network location that uses the location information provided by the network 10, such as an ID of the base station with the associated location information. In some other embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the circuit 260 location is a location of a local network that uses location information provided by the local wireless network 270 (via the local wireless interface, which are not shown)to determine location information for mobile objects. Can be used with other approaches in determining the location. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the local network is a network that is compliant WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network). In some other embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the local wireless network 270 is an interface that is compatible with Standart the Bluetooth. In any case, the local wireless network 270 may be used to provide information to the schema 260 location to determine the location information, which can be applied to moving objects that are in communication with the mobile terminal 20.

The memory 253 can store commands of a computer program that, when executed by a circuit 251 processor, perform the operations described herein and shown in the figures. The memory 253 can be nonvolatile memory such as EEPROM (flash memory), which maintains stored data even when power to the memory 253 is turned off. The memory 253 can also store a table of location information including location information, such as information about the last known position/time information, when they determined information about the last known location, install/remove signal flags, other ID and other information about the location according to the options of implementing the present invention.

The mobile terminal 20 includes a circuit 255 alarm, which is configured to be selectively activated, when the movable object (tagged with RFID) out of the coverage schemes 265 RFID interface. In particular, if installed/removed signal flag associated with the contract is to maintain a movable object, is in the prescribed position, the circuit 225 alarm will be activated if the corresponding mobile object goes out of coverage schemes 265 RFID interface. Alternatively, if installed/removed signal flag associated with a movable object is in a removed position, the circuit 225 alarm will not be activated if the moving object goes out of coverage schemes 265 RFID interface. It is obvious that the circuit 225 alarm can be configured to generate any type of signal that can be perceived by the user, for example, a vibration signal or an audible beep.

Figure 3 is a block diagram that illustrates the operation of the methods, computer software products and mobile terminals according to some variants of implementation of the present invention. It is obvious that the blocks illustrated in figure 3, represent the operations performed for each moving object from the moving objects in the coverage area of the mobile terminal. For example, if three moving object with the appropriate associated RFID tags are within the coverage area of the mobile terminal, the operations illustrated in blocks 3 are executed for each of these moving objects.

In the process variants ASU is estline according to the present invention may periodically transmit signals through RFID circuit interface RFID (block 305). The RFID signals transmitted by the mobile terminal, can bring energy to the RFID antennas RFID tag connected with moving objects. In response, the RFID tag transmits the identity information that uniquely identifies the mobile object. For example, the RFID tag may be connected with a bunch of keys from the vehicle, so that when the mobile terminal transmits a signal to the RFID tag, RFID label, coupled with the keys, responds with the identity information embedded in the RFID tag (including the code that uniquely identifies the keys).

Obviously, other personal items such as wallet, briefcase, etc. can be connected with other RFID tags, each of which includes its own unique identity information to identify the associated movable object. It is also clear that the mobile terminal may periodically transmit signals to RFID in mobile objects according to schedule or in random order. In other words, when used herein, the term "periodically" should not be interpreted as having a strictly defined time period associated with it.

If the mobile terminal is in the coverage area of the RFID tag (block 310), then the mobile terminal periodically receives information about the identity of the transmitted respective movable object by means of the RFID signal (black). As described above, the information about the ID uniquely identifies the mobile object connected to the RFID label, which gave the RFID signal.

The mobile terminal determines the location information, which must be associated with information about identification, adopted from a moving object (block 320). For example, in some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the location information of moving objects can be determined using GPS information, as described above with reference to figure 2. In other embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the location information is determined using information about the location of the network provided by the network 10, as described above with reference to figure 2. Obviously, information about the location, which should be associated with information about the ID provided by the RFID tag, may be equivalent to the location of the mobile terminal, or alternatively, may be determined based on the location information and the offset from him, determined on the basis of analysis received from the RFID tag, the RFID signal. In particular, the coverage area of a moving object can be estimated using the power of the RFID signal received in the mobile terminal, which then can be used to correct the information about metabolities mobile terminal. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention the analysis of the phase shifts of the RFID signal can be used to define an additional offset of location information for the mobile terminal.

The mobile terminal stores the specific location information for each mobile object in the table of location information described above with reference to figure 3 and below with reference to Fig.7. Moreover, since the mobile terminal periodically receives information about the identity from moving objects, some of them new location information is used to update an existing location information stored in the table of location information (block 325). The process can continue as described above, with periodic re-transmission of the RFID signal (block 305).

However, if the movable object is not in the coverage area of the mobile terminal (block 310), then the mobile terminal ceases to update the location information for a mobile object, which is located outside the zone to save the updated information about the location in the table of location information as information about the last known location for the mobile object (block 330). In addition, if you install/remove the signal flag in the table is information about the location is in the prescribed position, the circuit alarm is activated (block 325), so that the user can be notified that, perhaps, the movable object has been dropped/left in the wrong place. Alternatively, if installed/removed signal flag associated with a movable object is in a removed position, the alarm is not activated.

It is obvious that the location information determined by the mobile terminal may be determined and stored separately from the periodic reception of the identification information for moving objects. In other words, the mobile terminal can operate the schema location separately from the circuit of the RFID interface. For example, the location may periodically determine the location of the mobile terminal and to provide the location information in the memory or the register of the mobile terminal. When the identity information is received in the mobile terminal, the location information, which is available in the memory or the register can be read and entered in the table of location information in conjunction with information about identification of a moving object.

It is also clear that the definition of location information may be provided by an alternating manner, such as every 30 seconds or every minute, depending on the Ave is doctine user and available services. It is also clear that the offset location information provided by, for example, by the methods described above coverage or analysis phase, can be determined at the time of receiving the identification information and is applied to the location information available in the memory or register.

Figure 4 is a schematic diagram that illustrates operations of the mobile terminal according to some variants of implementation of the present invention. According to figure 4, each object of the set of moving objects 401A-D includes a respective RFID tag, which is programmed with information about the identity, which uniquely identifies the corresponding movable object 401A-D. Each object from the set of moving objects 401A-D is located within the zone 410 RFID mobile terminal 420. Periodically, the mobile terminal 420 transmits an RFID signal that causes the transmission of each of the multiple moving objects 401A-D signal 405A-D RFID, which is periodically taken the mobile terminal 420. The RFID signal transmitted by the multiple moving objects 401A-D, includes information about identification that uniquely identifies the corresponding movable object 401A-D.

Upon receipt of the RFID signal, which includes information about the identification, the mobile terminal 420, the binding is no location information with information about identification, adopted from moving objects 401A-D. In particular, the location information may be determined using information about the network adopted from base stations A-IN and/or from a satellite system 274 GPS, as described above. As described above, the mobile terminal 420 may adjust the GPS information and/or information network by analyzing the signal strength or phase shift of RFID signals received from the multiple moving objects 401A-D to provide the location information.

Each time the mobile terminal 420 receives the RFID signal from the moving object 401A-D, the mobile terminal 420 may associate the location information with the newly received information about the identity, in order to provide updated information about the location, which replaces the existing location information stored in the table of location information as described above.

Figure 5 is a schematic diagram that illustrates additional operations of mobile terminals according to some variants of implementation of the present invention. In particular, as shown in figure 5, two objects from the set of moving objects 401A-D, out of the zone 410 RFID. When moving objects 401 A-D out of the zone 410 RFID, mobile terminal 420 stops to update the location information in the table of information about what escapology, associated with moving objects 401 A-D to secure the data as information about the last known location of movable objects 401A-Century, moreover, the location information may also include time indicating when it was installed, information about the last known location for the mobile object. For example, if at time T1 the mobile terminal received RFID signal from a moving object A, the table location information will be updated by a certain location information associated with it, and by the time T1, indicating when the RFID signal was received. After the movable object A out of the zone 410 RFID, mobile object A it is no longer possible to accept the RFID signals. Accordingly, the mobile terminal stops to update the location information for a mobile object A, so that the previously stored location information and the time T1 are stored as information about the last known location for the mobile object A. However, periodically receiving updated location information from moving objects 401C-D may continue until these moving objects remain in the zone 410 RFID.

Referring to figure 5, the mobile terminal 420 can activate the alarm, when determined, is that the mobile object has left the area 410 RFID. For example, if the movable object 401B is wallet, and install/remove the signal flag associated with the wallet in the table of location information is in the prescribed position, then the mobile terminal 420 activates the signaling scheme, when the wallet comes out of the zone 410 of the RFID signal. The user may post install/remove the signal flag in the installed position, in accordance with the substance of the rolling object. In the above example, where the movable object V represents the wallet, the user may wish to be notified when the wallet comes out of the zone 410 RFID. In contrast, if the movable object A is the vehicle, the user may wish to associated with car set/remove the flag was shown in the captured position so that when the car is outside the zone 410 RFID alarm is not activated. Accordingly, in some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, each of the install/remove the signal flags in the table of location information can be set or cleared regardless of the position of the other flags.

Accordingly, if the user suspects that the movable object has been lost or is in the wrong place, the user can about utitsa to information about the location in the table of location information, to provide information about the direction, which is based on information about the last known location for the mobile object, which could be lost. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention provides information about the direction may be a map on the display of the mobile terminal, which displays information about the last known location for the mobile object. An example of a map view that includes information about the direction shown on Fig.6. In other embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the direction can be shown as the address, which can be defined by reference to the database via the network 10, to convert, for example, GPS information stored in the table information about the location in the address. Information about the direction may also include a time display that indicates when the information was received about the last known location for the mobile object. The user can refer to it time to get more information to understand where they could be abandoned or dropped movable object.

In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the information about the direction, provided on the display of the mobile terminal may include the impact some or all of the moving object. In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, the updating of location information and stored in the table information about the location can be selected on the basis of confidentiality, for example, if the user wants to temporarily prevent the display of location information associated with the selected movable objects.

In some embodiments, the implementation according to the present invention, as illustrated for the example of Fig.7, the information stored in the table of location information may be provided in the server 735, which may process this information as a web page 700 (or displayed on a computer document), which you can view through a network such as the Internet. It is obvious that access to the web page may be provided by the service provider application (through a server 735), which provides the ability to transfer electronic signals 750, which represent the location information included in the web page 700. As shown in Fig.7, the location information on the web page 700 may include information about the identification (ID)that uniquely identifies each of the mobile objects that the user wishes to track. Information about ID may be numeric or alphanumeric Kodo is, which is stored in the RFID tag and periodically transmitted to the mobile terminal.

Each segment of information about ID may be associated with the name of a moving object (i.e. the text), which can be used as a shortcut to a web page or display of a mobile terminal for easy identification.
