Title (EN) MOBILE DEVICE FOR LOW POWER IDENTIFICATION OF ITS POSITION AND A METHOD THEREFORE
(FR) DISPOSITIF MOBILE POUR IDENTIFICATION BASSE PUISSANCE DE SA POSITION ET PROCÉDÉ CORRESPONDANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a method in a mobile device (2) and a mobile device (2) for low power identification of its position in an indoor environment (22), in which beacon transmitters (20) of a beacon system are present. The device receives a notification from at least one of the beacon transmitters (20) of the beacon system that notifies the mobile device (2) that it is within the range of the beacon system. Thus it is the beacon transmitters (20) that perform the continuous scanning to identify if the mobile device (2) is within range and not the mobile device (2) itself. This will reduce the power consumption of the mobile device (2) substantially. The mobile device (2) will then request that the beacon transmitters (20) within range to send data pertaining to their position, and then determine its position by performing calculations based on such data.
(FR)La présente invention porte sur un procédé dans un dispositif mobile (2) et un dispositif mobile (2) pour identification basse puissance de sa position dans un environnement intérieur (22), dans lequel des balises émettrices (20) d'un système de balises sont présentes. Le dispositif reçoit une notification provenant d'au moins une des balises émettrices (20) du système de balises qui notifie au dispositif mobile (2) qu'il se trouve à portée du système de balises. Ce sont donc les balises émettrices (20) qui effectuent le balayage continu afin d'identifier si le dispositif mobile (2) se trouve à portée, et non le dispositif mobile (2) lui-même. Cela réduira sensiblement la consommation d'énergie du dispositif mobile (2). Le dispositif mobile (2) demandera ensuite que les balises émettrices (20) à portée envoient des données concernant leur position, et déterminera ensuite sa position par réalisation de calculs sur la base de ces données.
