DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS



[0021] The technical solutions in the embodiments of the present disclosure will be clearly and completely described with reference to the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of the present disclosure as follows.

[0022] The maintenance site management method provided in the present disclosure can be applied to the use of a maintenance device for a vehicle or an electrical device. When the user needs to use the maintenance device, it is only required to acquire the service items corresponding to the maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device and make a selection via the client, and the server controls the turn-on and turn-off of the device according to the service item selected by the user so as to provide the user with the service of using the maintenance device. The usage cost of the maintenance devices is reduced and the usage efficiency of the maintenance devices is improved. At the same time, different users can use the same maintenance devices and the sharing of maintenance devices is achieved.

[0023] An embodiment of the present disclosure discloses a maintenance device management method, which improves the usage efficiency of the maintenance devices.

[0024] FIG. 1 is a flowchart of a maintenance device management method according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. Referring to FIG. 1, the method includes:
S101: receiving information of maintenance device sent by a client.

[0025] In a specific implementation, after the user selects the device to be used, the server acquires the information of maintenance device of the device through a terminal device such as a mobile phone, where the information of maintenance device may include the information indicating the characteristics of the maintenance device, such as identification information like device number, name, location information, or QR code, etc. The specific manner of acquiring the information of maintenance device is not limited herein, and those skilled in the art can flexibly make the selection according to actual conditions. For example, the QR code or other device code on the maintenance device can be scanned through the client by the user and be parsed to obtain the information of maintenance device of the device, and the information of maintenance device is then sent to the server. Of course, the QR code or other device code may be directly sent to the server and be parsed by the server.

[0026] S102: returning a service rule for a maintenance device to the client according to the information of maintenance device.

[0027] In a specific implementation, after receiving the information of maintenance device, the server queries the database for the service rule corresponding to the information of maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device, and returns the service rule to the terminal device, where the service rule may include the service category, the usage rule, and the allowed duration of usage of the device. For example, the lift allows 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and one hour of usage. It can be understood that by default, the correspondence between the identification information and the service rule exists in the database of the server. The correspondence may be stored in the form of a data table, and of course may be stored in the database in other forms, which is not specifically limited herein.

[0028] It should be noted that the device may be used by the user in a free or paid manner. When the user needs to pay, the service rule should also include the usage fee corresponding to each duration of usage. The different duration of usage of each device may correspond to the same usage fee, and may alternatively correspond to the same usage fee, which is not specifically limited herein. Certainly, the same charging standard may be adopted for different devices. Alternatively, different charging standards may be adopted. Those skilled in the art may flexibly make the selection according to actual conditions, which is not specifically limited herein either. In this embodiment, the user can complete online payment through the client and no manual toll collection is required, thereby reducing the labor costs.

[0029] S103: receiving a service request sent by the client, wherein the service request includes a service item.

[0030] In a specific implementation, after the client receives the above mentioned service rule, the user needs to agree to the usage rule of the device through the client and select a service item, and the client generates a service request according to the service item and send it to the server.

[0031] S104: controlling the turn-on and turn-off of the maintenance device according to the service item.

[0032] In a specific implementation, after receiving the service request, the server controls the device to start operation to provide a service for the user, when the service item includes a service duration the countdown begins, and when the usage duration of the maintenance device reaches the service duration, the device is controlled to be turned off, that is, the maintenance device is not available for use. It can be understood that, before the countdown is over, the user can also choose to end the usage through the client. When the service item includes the service category, a request for ending the usage from the client is awaited, and the maintenance device is controlled to be turned off according to the request for ending the usage.

[0033] In the maintenance device management method provided by the present disclosure, each maintenance device has uniquely determined information of maintenance device. When the user needs to use the maintenance device, it is only required to acquire the service items corresponding to the maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device and make a selection via the client, and the server controls the turn-on and turn-off of the device according to the service item selected by the user so as to provide the user with the service of using the maintenance device. Compared with the solution in the prior art that a purchase is required before the use, the usage cost of the maintenance devices is reduced and the usage efficiency of the maintenance devices is improved. At the same time, different users can use the same maintenance devices and the sharing of maintenance devices is achieved.

[0034] An embodiment of the present disclosure discloses a maintenance device management method. Compared with the previous embodiment, the technical solution is further illustrated and optimized in this embodiment. In particular:
FIG. 2 is a flowchart of another maintenance device management method provided by an embodiment of the present disclosure. Referring to FIG. 2, the method includes:

S201: receiving information of maintenance device sent by the client.

S202: returning a service rule for a maintenance device to the client according to the information of maintenance device.



[0035] In this embodiment the specific payment rules for the user will be introduced in detail. It can be understood that when the user needs to pay for the use of the maintenance device, the above mentioned service rule should also include the charging standard corresponding to the maintenance device, that is, the usage fee corresponding to different usage duration or different service category of the maintenance device. When the user needs to pay a deposit, the charging standard should also include the amount of the deposit corresponding to the maintenance device.

[0036] As another implementation manner of the user paying the deposit, the server may send the amount of the deposit corresponding to the device selected by the user to the terminal device after receiving the service request of the user, and the user performs online payment through the client after confirming.

[0037] S231: receiving a service request sent by the client, where the service request includes a service item.

[0038] S232: determining the amount of the deposit of the maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device, and initiate a deposit payment transaction request to the client.

[0039] S233: controlling the turn-on of the maintenance device according to the service item after the client completes the deposit payment transaction.

[0040] It can be understood that, in order to ensure the user's civilized use of the maintenance device and the normal operation of each maintenance device, as a preferred embodiment, the means of collecting a deposit may be adopted. Specifically, after receiving the service request sent by the client, the server determines the amount of the deposit of the maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device, initiates a deposit payment transaction request to the client, and controls the turn-on of the maintenance device, i.e., the maintenance device is available for use, after the client completes the deposit payment transaction. The user can complete the deposit payment transaction through the common payment means such as online banking and third-party payment on the client, which is not specifically limited herein. As a preferred implementation manner, the deposit payment transaction may be uploaded to the block chain for preservation, that is, the server transmits the deposit payment transaction to the block chain through a node of the block chain, so that other nodes of the block chain synchronize the deposit payment transaction. Due to the decentralized and non-tampering characteristics of the block chain, the security of the deposit payment transaction is assured.

[0041] In the above embodiment, by default the database of the server stores the correspondence between each maintenance device and the deposit, and the correspondence may be stored in the database in the form of a data table, and may of course be stored in other forms, which is not specifically limited herein. It can be understood that the deposits corresponding to different usage times or service categories of different maintenance devices may be the same or different and those skilled in the art may flexibly set according to actual conditions.

[0042] For the refund of the deposit, the user may send a deposit refund request to the server through the client after using the maintenance device once, or may send the deposit refund request to the server after using the maintenance device multiple times, which is not specifically limited herein. After receiving the deposit refund request, the server queries the amount of the deposit of the user and refunds the deposit according to the payment path of the user.

[0043] S204: controlling the turn-off of the maintenance device according to the service item.

[0044] In a specific implementation, if the service item is a service duration, when a usage duration of the maintenance device reaches the service duration, the server controls the turn-off of the maintenance device. It can be understood that, when the usage duration does not reach the service duration, the user can also choose to end the usage through the client, that is, send a request for ending the usage to the server, and the server turns off the maintenance device according to the request for ending the usage. If the service item is a service category, when the user completes the service corresponding to the service category, the client sends a request for ending the usage to the server, and the server turns off the maintenance device when receiving the request for ending the usage.

[0045] S205: generating a list of services and a list of charges according to the service item, and initiating a payment transaction request to the client according to the list of services and the list of charges so as to cause the client to complete the payment transaction.

[0046] It should be noted that the server may generate a list of services and a list of charges after the maintenance device is turned off. Of course, the list of charges may be generated before the maintenance device is turned on, that is, the user must pay the list of charges before using the device. By default, the database of the server stores a correspondence between the service items and the charging standard. Similarly, the correspondence may be stored in the database in the form of a data table, and may of course be stored in other forms, which is not specifically limited herein.

[0047] It can be understood that, in order to improve the user experience, the user may be reminded that the usage time is about to time out at a preset time before the end of the countdown of the usage duration. The specific value of the preset time is not limited here. When the countdown ends, the maintenance device is controlled to be turned off. Of course, as a preferred embodiment, when the user uses the scheduled maintenance device for a time period exceeding the usage time, the usage fee corresponding to the time period exceeding the usage time may be counted into the list of charges as described above.

[0048] S261: acquiring current state information of the maintenance device, and determining whether the state of the maintenance device is normal according to the current state information. If the state of the maintenance device is normal, the process is ended and if the state of the maintenance device is abnormal, S262 is performed.

[0049] S262: generating a list of additional charges according to the current state information and initiating a transaction request for paying additional charge to the client according to the list of additional charges so as to cause the client to complete a transaction for paying additional charge.

[0050] In a specific implementation, when the user chooses to end the usage or the countdown is over, the current state information of the maintenance device is collected, and it is determined whether the operation state of the maintenance device is normal. For example, the operation state of the maintenance device can be detected by running monitoring, and the parameter values of the maintenance device can be collected by a voltage collector, a current collector, etc., and it is determined whether the parameter value is within a normal threshold range. For another example, whether the user follows the usage rule of the maintenance device, whether the detachable component of the maintenance device is put back, whether each movable component of the maintenance device is in its initial position (i.e., the position of each movable component before the user uses the maintenance device), and whether the overall cleaning degree of the maintenance device conforms to the standard, etc, are determined through the camera or the infrared device. According to the above determination result, the list of additional charges is generated, that is, when the operation state is normal, the additional charges is zero, and when the operation state is abnormal, the additional charge is the compensation required to restore the maintenance device to normal, and the users may share the maintenance device for vehicles next time only if they pay the additional charges.

[0051] As a preferred embodiment, similar to the preservation manner of the deposit payment transaction, the payment transaction for the usage charge and the additional charges may be uploaded to the block chain for preservation. Due to the decentralized and non-tampering characteristics of the block chain, the security of the payment transaction for the usage charge and the additional charges is assured.

[0052] An implementation of applying the maintenance device management provided in above embodiments to vehicle maintenance devices will be described below. In particular,
a balancing machine in a tire device has a QR code of the device attached thereon. When the user needs to use the balancing machine, the QR code is scanned by an application program of a mobile phone and sent to the server, the server parses the QR code to acquire the information of maintenance device of the balancing machine, and the server determines the deposit corresponding to the maintenance device according to the information of maintenance device and initiates a deposit payment transaction to the user. When the user completes the deposit payment, the service rule of the maintenance device is returned to the application program, where the service rule here is the allowable usage durations of the balance machine and the usage fees corresponding to each allowed usage durations. After the user selects an usage duration through the application program and agrees to the usage rule of the balancing machine, the server turns on the balancing machine. When the duration of the use reaches the usage duration selected by the user, the server turns off the balancing machine, generates a list of additional charges according to whether the operation state of the maintenance device is normal, and sends it to the application program together with the list of services and the list of charges so that the user can complete the payment transaction through online payment. The user can use other maintenance devices next time only after completing the payment operation. The user may apply for a refund of the deposit after using the balancing machine once and completing the payment transaction, or apply for a refund of the deposit and get the deposit after multiple uses.

[0053] An implementation of applying the maintenance device management provided in above embodiments to electrical appliance maintenance devices will be described below. In particular,
the user may select a digital multimeter through an application program of a mobile phone and select a service category of the digital multimeter. After determining the deposit according to the service category of the digital multimeter, the server initiates a deposit payment transaction to the user. After the user pays the deposit, the server returns the charging standard corresponding to the service category to the application program, and after the user confirms, the corresponding service function of the digital multimeter is turned on. The user may end the use through the application program. At this time, the server determines whether the digital multimeter is damaged, whether the multimeter header is in the correct position, etc., and generates a list of additional charges according to the determination result, and sends it to the application program together with the list of services and the list of charges so that the user can complete the payment transaction. The user may apply for a refund of the deposit after using the multimeter once and completing the payment transaction, or apply for a refund of the deposit and get the deposit after multiple uses.

[0054] The present disclosure further provides a maintenance device management server. FIG. 5 is a structural diagram of a maintenance device management server according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. Referring to FIG. 5, the maintenance device management server comprises:
