Application: System for generating a linkage between users associated with a vehicle (Patent ID: US20230274113A1)
The patent filed by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co Ltd describes a system for generating a linkage between a vehicle and a user, as well as generating a linkage between multiple users associated with the vehicle. The system includes a display device, a communication device, and processing circuitry. The display device is used to display a unique code that can be read by a portable electronic device associated with a user. The communication device allows for communication between the display device and the portable electronic device. The processing circuitry is responsible for generating the unique code, displaying it on the display device, receiving confirmation that the code has been read by the portable electronic device, and establishing a trusted linkage between the vehicle and the user based on the presence of the portable electronic device at the vehicle.
The system also includes additional features such as generating linkage data indicative of the linkage between the vehicle and the user, obtaining predetermined social data associated with the user, and determining correlation data between the social data of different users. The processing circuitry can then generate social association linkage data between users if the correlation data meets a predefined threshold. The system can notify users of the social association linkage data through a user interface on their portable electronic devices. The notification message can indicate if the users are currently traveling together with the vehicle or if there is a mutual time span when they usually travel together. Additionally, the notification message can provide a recommended time for the users to travel together with the vehicle.
The patent also describes a method for generating the linkage between the vehicle and the user, as well as between multiple users associated with the vehicle. The method includes steps such as generating and displaying unique codes, receiving confirmation of code reading, and establishing a trusted linkage based on the presence of portable electronic devices. The method also includes steps for generating linkage data, obtaining social data, determining correlation data, and generating social association linkage data. The method can notify users of the social association linkage data through a user interface on their portable electronic devices.
Overall, the system and method described in the patent aim to create a secure and trusted linkage between a vehicle and its users, as well as facilitate social associations between users based on their presence and travel patterns with the vehicle.
