Abstract

The remote speaker microphone (RSM) and the subscriber communicate with each other to provide communications and GPS outdoor location coordinates either to the end user or a requesting application. Thus, being able to charge the remote speaker microphone is vital and essential for the remote speaker microphone to operate and function. The remote speaker microphone typically receives its battery charge from the subscriber. To perform this function, the subscriber needs to be physically turned ”on” in order for the unit to start charging if the RSM falls below 3.2V.

Message Sequence between RSM and Subscriber for Sleeping (Charging) Indication on the Subscriber

By Spencer G. Palmer

 
 

            The remote speaker microphone (RSM) and the subscriber communicate with each other to provide communications and GPS outdoor location coordinates either to the end user or a requesting application.  Thus, being able to charge the remote speaker microphone is vital and essential for the remote speaker microphone to operate and function.  The remote speaker microphone typically receives its battery charge from the subscriber.  To perform this function, the subscriber needs to be physically turned ”on” in order for the unit to start charging if the RSM falls below 3.2V.       

            Over the course of time when polled at a constant rate and over a period of time the remote speaker microphone’s battery either becomes completely depleted or unable to charge itself .  Figure 1.0 shows a scenario in how this may be achieved.  The diagram also depicts the communication flow as the current design and implementation.    First, the application sends a request to the subscriber (at some rate).  Second, the remote speaker microphone responds to the request even though the user has physically placed the subscriber in the charger for charging.  Because the subscriber needs to be turned on to charge the RSM, the RSM keeps responding and is, thus, unable to charge because it is performing responses.

Figure 1.1 displays the charging state sleep mode indication that allows for the charging of the remote speaker microphone.   The message sequence that is returned back to the subscriber from the remote speaker microphone may, for example, be generated from a button that enables “sleep” mode.  This sleep mode prevents the remote speaker microphone from responding to requests that are placed from requesting applications.  In addition, the subscriber could send a message or error code back to the application indicating that the device is in “sleep mode”.    The user could, for instance, press the sleep button before he or she physically places the subscriber into the charging unit.
