Title (EN) PROXIMITY DETECTION UTILISING LOCATION BEACONS
(FR) DÉTECTION DE PROXIMITÉ UTILISANT DES BALISES DE LOCALISATION
Abstract:
(EN) User devices (1-4) are each provided with a data connection (20) to a remote server (30) and a beacon transceiver. Device (2) is operable to actively transmit beacon signals including its unique beacon identification code for a limited period. During active transmissions by device (2), devices (1 & 3) are within range of the transmissions and are operable to extract the beacon identification code of the transmitting device (2) and thus directly infer that they are in proximity to the transmitting device (2). The receiving devices (1, 3) communicate with server (30) their own unique beacon identification code and the received beacon identification code of the transmitting device (2). In response, the server (30) communicates details of the transmitting device (2) to the receiving devices (1, 3) and the beacon identification codes of the receiving devices (1, 3) to the transmitting device (2). The transmitting device (2) is thus able to infer the proximity of the receiving devices (1, 3) without the receiving devices (1, 3) having to transmit any beacon signals.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs utilisateurs (1-4), lesquels sont chacun dotés d'une liaison de données (20) à un serveur distant (30) et d'un émetteur-récepteur de balise. Le dispositif (2) peut fonctionner pour transmettre activement des signaux de balise comprenant son code d'identification de balise unique pendant une période limitée. Pendant les transmissions actives par le dispositif (2), des dispositifs (1 & 3) se situent dans la portée des transmissions et peuvent être utilisés pour extraire le code d'identification de balise du dispositif de transmission (2) et déduire ainsi directement qu'ils sont à proximité du dispositif de transmission (2). Les dispositifs de réception (1, 3) communiquent avec le serveur (30) leur propre code d'identification de balise unique et le code d'identification de balise reçu du dispositif de transmission (2). En réponse, le serveur (30) communique les détails du dispositif de transmission (2) aux dispositifs de réception (1, 3) et les codes d'identification de balise des dispositifs de réception (1, 3) au dispositif de transmission (2). Le dispositif de transmission (2) est capable de déduire la proximité des dispositifs de réception (1, 3) sans que les dispositifs de réception (1, 3) ne transmettent de quelconques signaux de balise.
