発明の名称 (英語) Detecting system, receiving device, and method for detecting
発明の概要(英語) A detecting system includes a sensor and a receiving device. The sensor is introduced into a living body through a mouth of the living body, transmits time-point related information associated with a plurality of time points different from one another, detects a physical amount in the living body, and transmits detection information representing the detected physical amount at each of the plurality of time points. The receiving device receives the time-point related information transmitted by the sensor and is on standby for receiving the detection information transmitted by the sensor on the basis of the plurality of time points associated with the received time-point related information.
従来技術、競合技術の概要(英語) BACKGROUND
A known detecting system includes a sensor that is introduced into a living body through the mouse, that detects a physical amount in the living body, and that transmits detection information representing the detected physical amount, and a receiving device that receives the detection information transmitted by the sensor (see, for example, Patent Literature 1). The sensor receives control information representing a periodic cycle from the receiving device and transmits the detection information on the basis of the periodic cycle represented by the received control information.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. A detecting system comprising:
a sensor that is introduced into a living body through a mouth of the living body, that transmits time-point related information associated with a plurality of time points different from one another, that detects a physical amount in the living body, and that transmits detection information representing the detected physical amount at each of the plurality of time points; and
a receiving device that receives the time-point related information transmitted by the sensor and that is on standby for receiving the detection information transmitted by the sensor on the basis of the plurality of time points associated with the received time-point related information.
[claim2]
2. The detecting system according to claim 1, wherein the receiving device is on standby for receiving other time-point related information transmitted by another sensor during a time period from a first time point at which the receiving device receives the time-point related information to a second time point at which a standby time associated with the received time-point related information passes since the first time point.
[claim3]
3. The detecting system according to claim 1, wherein:
the plurality of time points are set for a type of sensor;
the detecting system stores therein a type of sensor and a plurality of time points set for the type of the sensor in association with each other;
the time-point related information represents the type of the sensor; and
the receiving device is on standby for receiving the detection information transmitted by the sensor on the basis of the plurality of time points stored in association with the type represented by the received time-point related information and a time point at which the receiving device receives the time-point related information.
[claim4]
4. The detecting system according to claim 1, wherein:
the standby time is set for a type of sensor;
the detecting system stores therein a type of sensor and the standby time set for the type of the sensor in association with each other;
the time-point related information represents the type of the sensor; and
the receiving device is on standby for receiving other time-point related information transmitted by another sensor during a time period from a first time point at which the receiving device receives the time-point related information to a second time point at which the standby time stored in association with the type represented by the received time-point related information passes since the first time point.
[claim5]
5. The detecting system according to claim 2, wherein
when the receiving device receives the time-point related information transmitted by the other sensor during the time period, the receiving device carries out at least one selected from a group consisting of warning against a user of the detecting system, stopping the standby for receiving the detection information, and stopping a process on the received detection information.
[claim6]
6. The detecting system according to claim 2, wherein
when the receiving device receives the time-point related information transmitted by the other sensor during the time period and also when at least one of the plurality of the time points associated with the time-point related information received from the sensor coincides with at least one of the plurality of the time points associated with the time-point related information received from the other sensor,
the receiving device carries out at least one selected from a group consisting of warning against a user of the detecting system, stopping the standby for receiving the detection information, and stopping a process on the received detection information.
[claim7]
7. The detecting system according to claim 1, wherein the sensor starts transmitting the detection information after transmitting the time-point related information.
[claim8]
8. The detecting system according to claim 1, wherein:
the sensor detects the physical amount by converting the physical amount into a signal value;
the detection information represents the signal value;
the time-point related information identifies the sensor among a plurality of sensors; and
the detecting system stores therein a sensor and correction information in association with each other, the correction information being used for correcting relationship between the signal value and the physical amount in the sensor, and corrects the relationship between a signal value represented by the received detection information and the physical amount using the correction information stored in association with the sensor identified by the received time-point related information.
[claim9]
9. A receiving device comprising:
a receiver that receives time-point related information and detection information that are transmitted by a sensor, the sensor being introduced into a living body through a mouth of the living body, detecting a physical amount in the living body, and transmitting the detection information representing the detected physical amount at each of a plurality of time points; and
a controller that controls the receiver to be on standby for receiving the detection information transmitted by the sensor on the basis of the plurality of time points associated with the received time-point related information.
[claim10]
10. The receiving device according to claim 9, wherein the controller controls the receiver to be on standby for receiving other time-point related information transmitted by another sensor during a time period from a first time point at which the receiving device receives the time-point related information to a second time point at which a standby time associated with the received time-point related information passes since the first time point.
[claim11]
11. A method for detecting comprising:
introducing a sensor into a living body through a mouth of the living body;
at the sensor,
transmitting time-point related information associated with a plurality of time points different from one another;
at a receiving device,
receiving the time-point related information transmitted by the sensor;
at the sensor,
detecting a physical amount in the living body;
at the sensor,
transmitting detection information representing the detected physical amount at each of the plurality of time points; and
at the receiving device,
being on standby for receiving the detection information transmitted by the sensor on the basis of the plurality of time points associated with the received time-point related information.
