Document processing method and document processing device



A document processing method and a documnet processing device are provided. The document processing device includes an embedded controller that has both a local area network interface for receiving documents over an associated network and a wireless personal area network interface for communicating with mobile computing devices using BLUETOOTH low power communications. The embedded controller transmits broadcasts message to nearby mobile computing devices that send responses to the broadcast messages. Based on the RSSI of a received response, the embedded controller can determines whether a particular mobile computing device is in close proximity, indicating that a user is present at the document processing system. The embedded controller sends identification data associated with the document processing system to the mobile computing device. The user of the mobile computing device selects the document processing system to print a document, and the mobile computing device uses the identification data to route the document to the document processing system over a wireless local area network.
