Purpose of the Invention

  • Provides users with a smart lock shipping container with a GPS enabled system that offers enhanced security and tracking.

  • Includes a digitally operated lock mechanism with integrated GPS and IoT connectivity modules.

  • Allows users to utilize digital keys transmitted from a secure mobile application interface to open, close, and lock the motorized shipping container doors.

  • Enables users to locate the shipping container on a digital map through the software application for real time monitoring.

  • Features a backend secure server and database system that can store and offer access to current lock status, access logs, GPS data, and digital key data.

Problems Solved by the Invention

Standard shipping containers store items for transportation on boats, trains, aircrafts, and more. Once items are placed inside the container, the door must be manually shut and locked. The container is then placed between several other containers, and people may lose track of a specific container they need to ship. Real time monitoring of standard shipping containers may not be possible.

Detailed Description

Lockasys is a comprehensive shipping container system that includes the container, its motorized doors, GPS tracking, digital locks, and a paired smartphone application. The container is comprised of a motorized door lock. The lock can be opened and closed via remote satellite operation. In addition, the lock can be used to track the shipping container via GPS.

Upon receiving a lock or unlock request from the mobile application, the request is transmitted to the server for verification. The server checks the user's digital key and access permissions within a database. If the user's access is validated, a secure command is dispatched to the smart lock hardware to alter the lock status correspondingly.

The GPS module embedded within the smart lock hardware continuously gathers geographical location data. This data is regularly transmitted to the server and stored within the database. Users can access and monitor this real-time location data via the mobile application. The system is designed to alert users when the lock is moved from its registered location.

The server's database maintains a detailed list of authorized users for each smart lock. Access control can be administered remotely through the mobile application. When a user's access is granted, revoked, or modified, the server synchronizes the updated user list with the smart lock hardware. All data transmission between the smart lock hardware, server, and mobile application are encrypted using advanced security protocols to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access or hacking attempts.

Exact size, measurement, construction, and design specifications may vary upon further development and manufacturing.
