  • Patent number: 10503889
    Abstract: A mobile terminal that can be utilized for a checkpoint management system performs contactless electric communication with a reader/writer device for a passive RFID tag. An application processing unit cooperates with an application server through electronic communication. A position information acquisition unit acquires current position information of the mobile terminal. A terminal controller or a RFID tag processing unit receives a signal related to a carrier wave or a command emitted from the reader/writer device which results in a trigger that causes the application processing unit to operate. The application processing unit acquires from the mobile terminal personal information and chronologic information. The application processing unit further transmits the information to the application server together with current position information.

  • Publication number: 20130285806
    Abstract: The travel situation detection system specifies passage time at a check machine when a traveler or baggage passes through a passage point on a travel pathway at an airport, compares the passage time or passage period elapsed between two passage points with a mean value, and notifies the traveler or a worker of the comparison result by using the check machine or a terminal device. If the passage time or passage period is later or longer than the mean value, the traveler can rush to move while the worker who conveys baggage can be in hurry conveying the baggage. The travel situation detection system can further notify a waiting person or the like of the travel situation of the traveler by using the terminal device or a mobile terminal device. This allows the waiting person to understand the travel situation of the traveler.
