Abstract

Market surveys of Public Safety Customers have indicated that the operational users desire a mechanism to personalize a radio without using a PIN or SIM card. This is highlighted by quotes such as: "I want a radio to recognize me and be automat- ically updated with my personality as soon as I pick it up," and '7 don't want to use keys, PIN or SIM cards to update a radio's personality." Hence there is a requirement for a new method of personalizing a radio.

TERMINAL RECOGNITION OF USER WITHOUT PIN OR SIM CARD USING INTELLIGENT BAllERY CHARGER

by Grant Emberson

INTRODUCTION

  Market surveys of Public Safety Customers have indicated that the operational users desire a mechanism to personalize a radio without using a PIN or SIM card. This is highlighted by quotes such as:

  "I want a radio to recognize me and be automat- ically updated with my personality as soon as I pick it up," and '7 don't want to use keys, PIN or SIM cards to update a radio's personality."

Hence there is a requirement for a new method of personalizing a radio.

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED

  The problem to be solved is to enable the per- sonalization of a radio in a fast and efficient manner without employing a PIN or SIM card.

  The current method of personalizing a radio is via an RSS. This requires specific connections to be made to a radio and is generally not fast enough to be practical to use an RSS at the start of an opera- tional shift.

Other alternatives include insertion of a SIM

card into the radio to achieve personalization, but this is not generally liked by Public Safety Customers, see quotes above. Also the use of a PIN number for individual identification is not favored.
