Title
(EN) METHOD FOR ENABLING COMMUNICATIONS DEPENDENT ON USER LOCATION, USER-SPECIFIED LOCATION, OR ORIENTATION
(FR) PROCEDE D'ACTIVATION DE COMMUNICATIONS EN FONCTION DE L'EMPLACEMENT DE L'UTILISATEUR, DE L'EMPLACEMENT SPECIFIQUE A L'UTILISATEUR OU DE SON ORIENTATION
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method for enabling communications in a wireless communications network (10) on the basis of user-specified locations or orientations, having particular utility to vehicle-based communications. Users of the network broadcast their locations and orientations (headings) to a central server (24). Using his user interface (51), a user can specify either a location or a heading and transmit the same to the server (24). The server (24) will query other system users to determine which correspond to the specified locations or orientations, and the requesting user is then permitted to contact such other users. With such functionality, a given user can, for example, be enabled to communicate with other users at or near his current location, at or near some specified distant location, or that are traveling in the same direction as the user.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé d'activation de communications dans un réseau (10) de communication sans fil (10) en fonction des emplacements ou des orientations spécifiques à l'utilisateur, utilisés en particulier dans des communications basées sur un véhicule. Les utilisateurs du réseau envoient leurs emplacements et orientations (destinations) à un serveur central (24). A l'aide de son interface utilisateur (51), l'utilisateur peut spécifier un emplacement ou une destination et les transmettre au serveur (24). Le serveur (24) demande à d'autres utilisateurs du système de déterminer lequel correspond aux emplacements ou orientations spécifiés, et l'utilisateur ayant émis la demande est alors autorisé à contacter d'autres utilisateurs. Cette fonctionnalité permet, par exemple, à un utilisateur donné de communiquer avec d'autres utilisateurs se trouvant sur le même emplacement que lui ou près de son emplacement actuel, sur un emplacement éloigné spécifique ou près de celui-ci, ou se déplaçant dans la même direction que l'utilisateur.
