K. Matsubara

This disclosure explains a Service model that provides a system for supporting notification service to a requester, who rides on a train, when the train comes close to the destined station.

1) A requester has a mobile phone, which has a capability of position detection such as GPS (Global Psitioning System) or PHS (Personal Handyphone System).
2) When or before he rides on a train, he registers the destination of the train to the service provider's system.
3) The system obtains position data of the requester by mobile phone system with GPS sensing function every certain period.
4) The system has GIS (Geographic Information System), Database for Train information such as timetables and stations.
5) The system calculates the train position based on a requester's input and his location through the position data.
6) When the train comes close to the station, the system will call the mobile phone of the requester and tells that train reaches close to the destination so that heor she acknowledges it even falling asleep or being deep in reading. A system will prevent a requester from passing beyond the destination by providing the notification service.
