Hyundai Mobis had ten patents in mobile theme during Q3 2023. One patent is for a lock control apparatus for a vehicle that includes anchors, a communication module, a detector, and a processor. The processor calculates the position of a terminal, determines whether to unlock the door based on the position and a detection signal, and controls the engine to start. Another patent is for a purpose-built vehicle with a movable seat and a detachable seating base. The seating base has a rotatable structure that allows it to be fitted in an arbitrary space. Other patents include a system for vehicle display image warping, a system for controlling vehicle display content movement, and a system for controlling media play using a vehicle display.

Application: Lock control apparatus for vehicle and method of controlling the same (Patent ID: US20230249646A1)

The patent filed by Hyundai Mobis Co Ltd. describes a lock control apparatus for a vehicle. The apparatus includes anchors that receive a signal from a terminal, a communication module that uses controller area network (CAN) communication, a detector on a door that inputs a detection signal, and a processor. The processor receives the signal transmitted from the terminal through the communication module, calculates the position of the terminal based on the signal, determines whether to unlock the door based on the position of the terminal and the detection signal, and controls the engine to start. The processor also controls the anchors to enter a sleep mode based on waiting times and resets them to release the sleep mode. Additionally, the processor controls the anchors to enter a waiting mode based on the number of anchors transmitting the signal from the terminal.

The claims of the patent describe a method and device for ranging and receiving a signal in an anchor. The method involves waiting for a signal from an initiator, ranging an anchor between the initiator and the anchor based on a ranging block divided into ranging rounds, and determining whether the signal is received based on a time grid for a ranging session. The anchor can be connected to the initiator based on the time grid, and its state can be determined as either a sleep mode or a waiting mode. The device includes a processor and memory to store control data. The processor waits for a signal from an initiator, ranges an anchor based on a ranging block divided into ranging rounds, and determines whether the signal is received based on a time grid for a ranging session. The anchor can be connected to the initiator based on the time grid, and its state can be determined as either a sleep mode or a waiting mode.

In summary, the patent describes a lock control apparatus for a vehicle that uses anchors, a communication module, a detector, and a processor to receive and process signals from a terminal to determine whether to unlock the door and start the engine. The processor also controls the sleep and waiting modes of the anchors based on waiting times and the number of anchors transmitting the signal. The claims describe methods and devices for ranging and receiving signals in an anchor, including determining the state of the anchor and connecting it to the initiator based on a time grid.
