Description

Title of Invention : ELECTRONIC DEVICE AND METHOD OF TRANSMITTING DATA BY ELECTRONIC DEVICE

Technical Field

[1]
The disclosure relates generally to an electronic device and a method of transmitting data by an electronic device

Background Art

[2]
A biometric information measurement device (for example, a wearable device, a band, or a scale) may uni-directionally transmit or exchange simple health data (for example, profile, step count, or sleep information of a user) to or with an electronic device.
[3]
A biometric information measurement device to which a health management function has been recently added increases the amount of health data (for example, water data, caffeine data, sleep data, stress data, food data, weight data, and step count data) provided to an electronic device and provides real time health information to the electronic device.

Disclosure of Invention

Technical Problem

[4]
Most health data provided by a biometric information measurement device, to which a health management function is added, contains vast amounts of raw data for accurate analysis and thus the biometric information measurement device may provide a very large amount of health data.
[5]
A time required to process each piece of the data may increase due to the large amount of health data, and it may also take time to cut, process, and transmit partial data according to a method of transmitting a table including health data among measurement, storage, synchronization, processing, and transmission processes. It is important to transmit optimized data to allow a user to experience a process in almost in real time.
[6]
The health data should pass through an encryption/decryption process for security; thus, it may take a longer time to transmit the health information. When the user exercises while using a positioning system (for example, a global positioning system (GPS)) included in the biometric information measurement device, or when the user has not synchronized health information between the biometric information measurement device and the electronic device for a long time, the user may be inconvenienced in that the user must wait a long time until the electronic device receives and identifies the health data measured by the biometric information measurement device.
[7]
For example, in order to check whether there is something wrong with a heart rate after exercising for a long time, a biometric information measurement device may measure a user's heart rate and a health application of the electronic device may check the same. However, the biometric information measurement device may synchronize raw data (i.e., measured position data, step count data, or altitude data according to the exercise) with heart rate data and transmit the synchronized data to the electronic device. Thus, the user may have to wait a long time to see his or her heart rate data since the heart rate data is transmitted together with other raw data even though the heart rate data itself is low in volume.
[8]
In the case of an application programming interface (API) provided in a framework layer for data transmission between devices in the latest operating system (OS), an option indicating urgency of data transmission is configured by a client application and a part for dynamically changing data transmission is not supported by the framework layer.
[9]
Further, a scheme through which data is transmitted between devices in the client application groups data from the last time point at which a table including data is transmitted to the present time into one packet and transmits the one packet, and when an amount of data in the packet exceeds a maximum transmission range, separates the packet and transmits the separated packets together. However, the data transmission scheme has a disadvantage in that the processing requirements necessary for performing the scheme rapidly increase as an amount of health data measured by various biometric information measurement devices increases.

Solution to Problem

[10]
The present disclosure has been made to address the above-mentioned problems and disadvantages, and to provide at least the advantages described below.
[11]
In accordance with an aspect of the disclosure, an electronic device is provided. The electronic device includes a housing, a touch screen display exposed through a portion of the housing, at least one communication module located inside the housing, a processor located inside the housing and operatively connected to the touch screen display and the at least one communication module, and a memory located inside the housing and operatively connected to the processor, wherein the memory is configured to store at least one of personal data and a priority table having priority information of each data type, and store instructions causing the processor, when executed, to establish a connection with an external electronic device by the electronic device through the communication module, transmit the priority table of the electronic device to the external electronic device in response to the established connection, and receive data transmitted from the external electronic device through the communication module based on at least a portion of the priority table of the electronic device.
[12]
In accordance with another aspect of the disclosure, a method of transmitting data by an electronic device is provided. The method includes storing at least one of personal data and a priority table having priority information for each data type, establishing a connection with an external electronic device by the electronic device, transmitting the priority table of the electronic device to the external electronic device in response to the established connection, and receiving data transmitted from the external electronic device based on at least a portion of the priority table of the electronic device.

Advantageous Effects of Invention

[13]
According to various embodiments, it is possible to provide optimized performance suitable for one or more users by providing a priority information table for data transmission of an individual user without transmitting data related to a client application and devices to all users on a network.
[14]
That is, characteristics of the devices occupied by the users may be considered based on an exchange of individual user priority information tables between devices occupied by the users. Additionally, a delay generated due to expansion of attribute information of the individual user priority information tables according to diversification of a communication channel with the biometric information measurement device may be minimized. In addition, performance may be increased by immediately updating a user interface (UI) or a graphic UI (GUI) upon receipt of health data which the user desires.

FIG. 1B shows the front appearance 100a and the back appearance 100b of an electronic device 101. Referring to FIG. 1B, the electronic device 101 includes a housing 111, a display 112, or a speaker 113.
[71]
The housing 111 may provide a space for receiving an element (for example, the display 112 or the speaker 113). The housing 111 may be implemented in various forms.
[72]
The display 112 may be located on a front surface 110a of the housing 111. The display 112 may be a touch-screen type that overlaps a touch panel. The display 112 may include a curved surface. For example, the display 112 may include a curved surface in an edge area close to a corner.
[73]
The speaker 113 for outputting a voice signal may be located above the display 112 disposed on the front surface 110a of the housing 111. A home key 14 in a soft-key type may be located in a display area on the lower part of the display 112.
[74]
The electronic device 101 may mount components for performing various functions. The components may include at least one sensor module that includes a configuration which is the same as or similar to the sensor module 176. For example, at least one of an illumination sensor (i.e., an optical sensor), a proximity sensor, an infrared sensor, or an ultrasound sensor may be disposed in the vicinity of the speaker 113. Further, the sensor module may include a motion sensor, such as a gyro sensor or a geomagnetic sensor, as well as an acceleration sensor and may acquire information on a user's motion related to activities of the user of the electronic device 101. The sensor module may include at least one biometric sensor (for example, a heart rate sensor) for measuring a user's biometric information.
[75]
A biometric sensor 116 may be disposed on the back surface 110b of the electronic device 101 (for example, the surface facing a direction opposite the display 112). The biometric sensor 116 may be disposed adjacent to the camera module 117. A fingerprint sensor may be disposed on the back surface 110b of the electronic device 101 separately from the biometric sensor 116. Further, the fingerprint sensor may be mounted on the side surface of the electronic device 101 or inside the display 112 disposed on the front surface 110a. For example, when the fingerprint sensor is disposed on the side surface of the electronic device 101, the user may easily touch the fingerprint sensor with a thumb while grasping the electronic device 101 as illustrated in the example of the back appearance 100b of the electronic device 101 in FIG. 1B.
[76]
Fingerprint information may be acquired in the state in which the user grasps the electronic device 101 with his/her hand. Accordingly, if the number of users using the electronic device 101 is plural, the users may be identified on the basis of input fingerprint information. Therefore, the electronic device 101 may manage data related to each user on the basis of biometric information of a plurality of users or a signal for identifying biometric information.
[77]
The biometric information or the signal for identifying the biometric information may be acquired by bringing a user's body part 115 (for example, a finger) into contact with the biometric sensor 116 or making the user's body part 115 close to the biometric sensor 116. The biometric information or the signal for identifying the biometric information may be acquired according to the position of the biometric sensor 116 in the electronic device 101.
[78]
The electronic device 101 may acquire at least one piece of sensor data generated according to movement of the user through at least one sensor included in the sensor module. The electronic device 101 may determine a user's action state (for example, an exercise state or a sleep state) on the basis of at least one piece of the acquired sensor data. For example, the electronic device 101 may identify the user's action state (i.e., squatting, running, swimming, cycling, walking, or hiking) on the basis of at least one piece of sensor data acquired by the sensor module. The electronic device 101 may interwork (i.e., connect) with a wearable electronic device such as a wearable device or a health band to acquire data related to the user's action. When the electronic device 101 interworks with the wearable device, the electronic device 101 may acquire data related to the user's action from the wearable device.
[79]
FIG. 2 is a block diagram 200 illustrating a first electronic device 201 and a second electronic device 202, according to an embodiment. The first electronic device 201 and the second electronic device 202 may include all or some of the electronic device 101 illustrated in FIG. 1A.
[80]
Referring to FIG. 2, the first electronic device 201 includes a first processor 220a, a first memory 230a, a first display 260a, a first sensor unit 276a, and a first communication unit 290a.
[81]
The first processor 220a may store a priority table of the first electronic device 201 having priority information for each type of data.
[82]
The first processor 220a may receive a default priority table corresponding to user profile information of the first electronic device 201 from a server 108 and configure the default priority table as the priority table of the first electronic device.
[83]
The first processor 220a may provide user profile information (for example, age, height, weight, and gender) input by the user of the first electronic device 201 through a health application to the server 108 and receive the default priority table corresponding to the user profile information of the first electronic device 201 among a plurality of priority tables stored in the server 108.
[84]
The server 108 may collect data (for example, exercise data, sleep data, step count data, and stress data) from users of a plurality of electronic devices, generate a priority table including priority information for each type of data on the basis of at least a portion of the collected data, and classify the generated priority table into a plurality of priority tables on the basis of at least a portion of the user profile information. The server 108 may transmit the default priority table corresponding to the user profile information of the first electronic device 201 among the plurality of priority tables according to a request from the first electronic device 201.
[85]
For example, a female user in her 50s may receive a default priority table in which blood sugar data and/or diabetic data has a high priority (i.e., a high priority value) on the basis of a portion of user profile information configured by the user among the plurality of priority tables stored in the server. The received default priority table may be configured as the priority table of the first electronic device 201 without any additional configuration. Alternatively, a male user in his 30s may receive a default priority table in which data related to exercise has a high priority on the basis of at least a portion of user profile information configured by the user among the plurality of priority tables stored in the server. The received default priority table may be configured as the priority table of the first electronic device 201 without any additional configuration.
[86]
Further, the default priority table may include the data type and a priority score for each data type. The priority score for each data type may be identified on the basis of scores of priority determination data (for example, frequency, visibility, or file type). With regard to the visibility of the priority determination data, a high score may be assigned to a data type that is frequently exposed to a dashboard of the health application or a data type of a tracker that is used by the user recently. With regard to the file type of the priority determination data, a high score may be assigned to a file type having a large size, a normal value file type or a summary file type, rather than the high score being assigned to a raw data type such as a positioning system (for example, a GPS). In FIG. 3, the default priority table provided by the server 108 will be described.
[87]
FIG. 3 illustrates a default priority table 300 provided to the server, according to an embodiment. FIG. 3 shows an example of a default priority table corresponding to a male user in his 20s among a plurality of priority tables.
[88]
Referring to FIG. 3, the default priority table 300 includes a data type 310, a priority determination data type 320, and a priority score 330 for each data type. The server 108 may determine the priority score 330 for each data type by multiplying each score of the priority determination data 320 (for example, frequency a1, visibility a2, ..., and file type an) and a predetermined scale factor value (for example, F1, F2, ..., and Fn) and summing (i.e., adding) all the priority score determination data 320 multiplied by the predetermined scale factor value. As illustrated in FIG. 3, the male user in his 20s receiving the default priority table 300, in which sports data 301 and step count data 302 have a high priority, may configure the default priority table 300 as the priority table of the first electronic device 201 without any additional configuration.
[89]
The first processor 220a may periodically (for example, daily) receive a default priority table 300 corresponding to user profile information of the first electronic device 201 from the server 108 and update the priority table of the first electronic device 201 on the basis of at least a portion of the received default priority table 300.
[90]
The first processor 220a may generate a personalized priority table on the basis of the default priority table 300 received from the server 108 and/or at least a portion of personal data stored in the first memory 230a in response to a selection of generating the personalized priority table, and configure the generated personalized priority table as the priority table of the first electronic device 201.
[91]
The first processor 220a may determine a selection of generating the personalized priority table in response to selection by the user or a preset option value.
[92]
When generation of the personalized priority table is selected, the first processor 220a may generate a personalized priority table changed from priority information (for example, the priority score 330 for each data type of FIG. 3) of the default priority table 300 corresponding to user profile information of the first electronic device 201 received from the server 108 on the basis of at least a portion of personal data collected by the first electronic device 201 and stored in the first memory 230a. The personal data stored in the first memory 230a may be a score (for example, the score of the priority determination data 320 of FIG. 3) of a frequency, visibility, and/or a file type corresponding to the data type used by the user of the first electronic device 201.
[93]
When the priority information 330 configured in the default priority table 300 received from the server 108 should be changed on the basis of at least a portion of the personal data stored in the first memory 230a, the first processor 220a may generate a personalized priority table in which at least one of the data type in the default priority table 300 and the data type determined on the basis of at least a portion of the personal data stored in the first memory 230a has high priority.
[94]
For example, when a female user in her 50s receives a default priority table 300, in which blood sugar data and/or diabetic data has the high priority, from the server 108 and frequently uses the data type related to exercise on the basis of an analysis result of personal data stored in the electronic device in response to a selection of generating the personalized priority table, a priority of exercise-related data as well as the blood sugar data and/or the diabetic data may increase. In FIG. 4, the personalized priority table provided by the first electronic device 201 will be described.
[95]
FIG. 4 illustrates a personalized priority table 400 provided by the electronic device, according to an embodiment. FIG. 4 shows an example of a personalized priority table corresponding to a male user in his 20s.
[96]
Referring to FIG. 4, the personalized priority table 400 includes a data type 410, a priority determination data type 420, and a priority score 430 for each data type 410. The first processor 220a may analyze personal data stored in the first memory 230a in response to a selection of generating the personalized priority table. The first processor 220a may identify the priority score 430 for each type data on the basis of at least a portion of personal data. The first processor 220a may determine the priority score 430 for each data type by multiplying each score of the priority determination data 420 (for example, frequency b1, visibility b2, ..., and file type bn) and a predetermined scale factor value (for example, F1, F2, ..., and Fn) and summing (i.e., adding) all the priority score determination data 420 multiplied by the predetermined scale factor value.
[97]
Sports data 401 is identified as a data type having the high priority (i.e., high or highest priority value) in the default priority table 300 based on the identification result of the priority score 430 for each data type on the basis of at least a portion of the personal data. In addition, sleep data 402 is determined as a data type having high priority on the basis of at least a portion of the personal data stored in the first memory 230a. The first processor 220a may generate the personalized priority table 400 in which the sports data 401 and the sleep data 402 have the highest priorities (i.e., sports data 401 and sleep data 402 both have the highest priority value). Alternatively, the first processor 220a may determine that the sleep data 402 has the highest priority (i.e., highest priority value) and the sports data 401 has the next highest priority (i.e., next highest priority value).
[98]
The first processor 220a may periodically update the priority table of the first electronic device 201 corresponding to the personalized priority table 400 on the basis of at least a portion of a change in the personal data stored in the first memory 230a.
[99]
The first processor 220a may transmit the personalized priority table 400 configured as the priority table of the first electronic device 201 to the server 108 in order to allow the server 108 to register the personalized priority table 400 as a user priority table of the first electronic device 201.
[100]
When cancelling the generation of the personalized priority table 400 is selected while the personalized priority table 400 is configured as the priority table of the first electronic device 201, the first processor 220a may configure the default priority table 300 received from the server 108 as the priority table of the first electronic device 201.
[101]
The first processor 220a may classify the data types 410 according to each transmission level on the basis of priority information 430 of the priority table 400 of the first electronic device 201. For example, the first processor 220a may classify the data types 410 according to transmission levels such as high, mid (i.e., middle), and low on the basis of at least a portion of the priority information 430 of the priority table 400 of the first electronic device 201.
[102]
The first processor 220a may display data received from the second electronic device 202 that was transmitted on the basis of at least a portion of the priority table 400 of the first electronic device 201. The first processor 220a may sequentially update the data based on an order in which the data was received from the second electronic device 202, and display the data on a first display 260a.

The plurality of communication means may include a plurality of channels. Among the plurality of separated channels (for example, socket, ipc, or binder), a channel having a high bit rate or a high permission may transmit data having a high priority. Further, the plurality of communication means may include physical communication means. The physical communication means (for example, Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy (BLE), a cellular network, or Wi-Fi) may be classified according to a priority to transmit data. Temporary data unrelated to security, such as health data or medical data, normal data, or a thumbnail image, may be classified as urgent, or having a high transmission level, and may be more rapidly transmitted through a normal channel (for example, a secure or non-secure channel).
[133]
When the second processor 220b identifies that water data and caffeine data are classified as a high transmission level and sleep data and exercise data are classified as a mid transmission level on the basis of at least a portion of the priority table of the first electronic device 201, the second processor 220b may transmit the water data and the caffeine data classified as the high transmission level through a first channel 710 having a high bit rate (a high priority channel) among a plurality of communication means, for example, a plurality of channels. The second processor 220b may transmit the sleep data and the exercise data classified as the mid transmission level through a second channel 713 (mid priority channel) having a lower bit rate than the first channel 710 among the plurality of channels.
