Detailed description of the invention

Examples of embodiments of the navigation device, navigation method, and a program, in accordance with the present invention, are explained in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 shows a block diagram of the configuration of a network system including a navigation device, in accordance with the first variant implementation of the present invention. As shown in figure 1, the network system comprises a navigation condition the device 100, the network 200 and the navigation server 300.

The example network 200 is a mobile phone communication network or the Internet, and through the network 200 can exchange various data between the navigation device 100 and the navigation server 300.

The navigation device 100, in accordance with the first variant execution is a portable device of the type having a mobile phone, and includes a display unit 110, block 111 of the voice output, the block 112 of the input voice, the vibrator 113, block 114 GOS (GPS, global positioning system)module 115 connection, the operation unit 116, and a controller 117.

The display unit 110 includes an LCD (LCD, liquid crystal display) or similar device, and displays various information such as a map, based on display data transmitted from the controller 117. The block 111 of the voice output contains the speaker and generates a voice based on the voice data transmitted from the controller 117. Block 112 of the input voice has a microphone and generates voice data corresponding to sounds produced by the user or the like, to transmit voice data to the controller 117. Block 112 of the voice input is used to input voice of a user when the device is used as a telephone.

The vibrator 113 has the motor of the vibrator or similar device and vibrates under the control of the controller 117. The user with the navigation device 100, receives information about incoming calls and various other information with the help of such vibration. The block 114, the GOS has the antenna a GPS or similar device, and transmits to the controller 117 position information on the basis of information received from the satellite.

Block 115 connection has the configuration similar to the communication unit, a mobile phone, including, for example, antennas, and transmits/receives voice data, map data and other various data, providing a link with the other communication terminal (mobile phone, network server, etc) via the network 200, the mobile telephone under the control of the controller 117. The operation unit 116 has an input unit, such as ten keys, and generates an operation signal in accordance with the content of the operation of the user for transmission of this signal to the controller 117. For example, the user properly uses the operation unit 116 to input instructions to complete the directions on the route.

The controller 117 includes memory blocks, such as CPU (Central processing unit), ROM (read only memory) device and a RAM (random access memory), and executes programs stored in the memory blocks, to ensure full control of the navigation device 100. Thus, the controller 117 controls the respective units of the device, while the device performs the function of a mobile phone.

The controller 117 of the navigation device 100, in accordance with the first variant implementation, controls the respective units of the device that performs navigation functions, such as displaying maps and direction. More specifically, the controller 117 includes a controller 120 direction, the controller 130 of the display, the controller 140 voice directions, the vibration controller 150 and the block 160 receiving navigation information.

The controller 130 generates display data of the display card to display the card on the basis of the map data distributed from the navigation server 300, output, display the map on the display unit 110. The controller 130 generates display data display for displaying the iconic/graphic information for directions and other navigation information with the transfer of this information to the display unit 110. Map showing the route for directions, landmark information directions along the route, such as "turn right", etc. is displayed in the display unit 110 based on the display data generated by the controller 130 of the display.

The controller 140 voice direction outputs voice data corresponding to the voice emitted by the block 111 of the voice output, in block 111 of the voice output, at certain moments of the belts, while provided direction on a route, to generate voice guidance for direction. For example, when the user of the navigation device 100 is located at a point 30 metres from the intersection at which the user should turn to the right, the controller 140 voice directions outputs the voice data to generate the voice guidance directions such as "turn right at the next intersection".

Vibration controller 150 controls the vibrator 113 at specific points in time to ensure vibration of the vibrator 113 with a different sequence of pulses of vibration. The navigation device 100, in accordance with the first variant implementation, can provide the direction of the user along the route using a different sequence of pulses of vibration. For example, the vibrator 113 is controlled so that it vibrated with a sequence of pulses of vibration, which means the direction to the right when the user of the navigation device 100 is at a point which is located 30 metres from the intersection at which the user should turn to the right (for example, vibrates three times per second). Alternatively, the vibrator 113 is controlled so that it vibrated with a sequence of pulses of vibration, which is OSN which denotes the direction to the left, when the user is at a point which is located at a distance of 30 meters from the intersection at which the user should turn to the left (for example, vibrates twice, with an interval of two seconds).

In accordance with the first variant execution unit 110 of the display unit 111 of the voice output, the vibrator 113, the controller 130 of the display, the controller 140 voice direction and a vibration controller 150 is fixed in the block direction, which guides the user along the route. The controller 120 direction controls the direction of the respective blocks.

The controller 120 direction controls the respective blocks, which guide the user along the route, to provide direction. More specifically, the controller 120 direction controls the units based on the current position information received in block 114, the GOS, and the selected route for the direction that provides the direction, for example, display information, directions, voice direction, the direction by vibration and the like.

The controller 120 direction controls the blocks so that provided direction on a route, as described above, but does not provide control blocks for direction in all sections of the route, and receives an instruction to execute the directions only for the pedestrian section of the route. The controller 120 direction UE is to place blocks, providing direction in the section of the route, when receiving the instruction to execute directions.

The navigation server 300, in accordance with the first variant implementation, determines the place of departure and place of destination, to conduct a General search of the route, including not only the pedestrian section, but also sections that use the public transport system, including the place of departure, boarding station (or bus stop)used public transport system, the landing station (or bus stop) and the destination. For example, when you specify a specific location And the departure and place of destination, automatically searches for a route from the departure station (pedestrian area), from station C to station D (metro line OO), from station D to station Efrom the station E to the bus stop F and from the bus stop F to destination (pedestrian area). The pedestrian area is not used public transport system, and used this kind of movement, like a Bicycle, on which the user can move in any direction.

When provided direction on the found route from And departure to the place of destination, which uses many types of movements, control of the ler 120 direction receives the instruction to execute the directions of the user only for pedestrian sections from a to C and from F to C. The controller 120 direction performs control so that provided a voice direction, the direction of vibration, etc. for partitions, for which he received the statement.

Block 160 receiving navigation information accesses the navigation server 300 through the block 115 connection and the network 200, and requests the transmission of information necessary for navigation, such as map data, the map display unit 110 of the display, and data representing the results of the search route from the departure point to the destination.

More specifically, when you want to display a map including the current position, the block 160 receiving navigation information periodically requests information representing the current position of the block 114, the GOS, and transmits a request for transmission of map data that includes information about the current position, the navigation server 300. When the block 160 receiving navigation information already received map data including the current position, it does not transfer request, and only when it does not contain the map data including the current position, he performs a transfer request.

Block 160 receiving navigation information passes the request to the route search, including information necessary for the route search, such as the departure point (the current position can be automatically is predelino as a point of departure, or you can enter the place of departure, place of destination and other search criteria (for example, requiring a short time, the requirement of low cost and so on) in the navigation server 300. Block 160 receiving navigation information requests map data and the search results route transmitted from the navigation server 300, in accordance with such requests to transfer data to the controller 130 of the display or the like.

The navigation device 100 has the above-described configuration. The navigation server 300 will be explained below. The navigation server 300 contains block 310 distribution maps, base 320 data (DB, DB) maps and block 330 route lookup.

In the database 320 map data stored map data. When receiving the transfer request from the navigation device 100 (or other navigation device), block 310 distribution card receives from the base map data the map data including the location specified in the information about the current provision included in a transfer request. Block 310 distribution maps transmits the map data via the network 200 to the navigation device 100 to the source of the request.

After receipt of the request for the route search from the navigation device 100 block 330 route lookup searches multiple routes from the departure point to the destination included in the query, d is I transfer the found results route through the network 200 to the navigation device 100 to the source of the request.

The search unit 330 route navigation server 300, in accordance with the first variant implementation, as appropriate, combines many types of movements, such as movement by foot, public transport, such as trains and buses, to search for the optimal route from the departure point to the destination. As search technology route, using different types of movements can be used, for example, the technology disclosed in laid out the proposal in Japanese patent No. 2000-258184.

Network system including the navigation device 100 and the navigation server 300, in accordance with the first variant of implementation, has the above configuration. The navigation device 100 and the navigation server 300 during execution of the navigation method comprising the route search, using the navigation device 100 are explained below with reference to figure 2-7.

As shown in figure 2, the user enters search terms, such as the place of departure and destination, the navigation device 100 via the operation unit 116, as the instructions on the execution of the search route. In accordance with this navigation device 100 transmits a request for the route search, including a search condition, the route is, such as the place of departure and destination, the navigation server 300 through the network 200 (step Sa1).

The navigation server 300, which receives the request for the route search from the navigation device 100 performs a route search according to the search conditions included in the request for the route search (step Sa2), and transmits the search results of the route in the navigation device 100 through the network 200 (step Sa3). In the navigation server 300 place of departure and destination are determined so that may be executed by the route search, which combined section using many types of movements, such as movement by foot and bus, and movement on foot and train. Search results route passed.

The navigation device 100, which takes the results of the route search, displays the results of the route search unit 110 of the display (step Sa4). One example of the search route for displaying in the display unit 110 of the navigation device 100 shown in Fig 3. As shown in figure 3, in this example, four of the route (the route with departure at 15:30, arriving at 16:11, the route with departure at 15:33, arrival at 16:13" and so on)appear in the search results list, the route with the detailed content of the respective routes.

Figure 3 shows the content presented on the screen, displays Agaeva regardless does the size of the display screen of the navigation device 100. That is, when the size of the display screen is smaller than the display shown in figure 3, the content can be scrolled for display, and thus, you can view all the content.

The first route in the example shown in figure 3, represents a route from the departure point to the destination using pedestrian crossings, subways and pedestrian crossing. More specifically, the first route includes (1) a pedestrian section (from the current location to the station to NASU, exit 2), (2) partition using line Chiyoda (from station to Nezu station Hibiya), (3) the section using the Hibiya line (from station Hibiya station, Cameco), and (4) section pedestrian crossing (from the metro Kamiyacho, output 1 to the home (destination)). This displays the details of the relevant sections of the route.

When you can see details of the route, including four sections (1)to(4)displays the software buttons 401, such as "Start route" and "Check route map", for sections (1) and (4) pedestrian crossing. The user includes the operation unit 116 of the navigation device 100 and notes software buttons 401 to enter such instructions as "Start route" or "Check out the map of the route.

<> On the other hand, such a software button "Start route" is not displayed for partitions that use moving to metro. Although figure 3 is not shown, in accordance with the first option run program button, such as "Start route" is not displayed for partitions that use public transport such as bus and train, in addition to the subway, and the instruction "Start route" is not used for these sections.

The navigation device 100 on the basis of instructions, including route selection by the user after displaying multiple routes, explained below with reference to figure 4. As shown in figure 4, the controller 117 determines does the user any instruction via the operation unit 116 (step Sb1).

When receiving the instruction, the controller 117 determines whether the button marked "Check out the map of the route (step Sb2), and note when the button "Check out the map of the route, the controller 117 performs control so that the card, including the place of departure of the selected route is displayed in the display unit 110 (step Sb3).

One example of the content of the display unit 110 of the display when mark the button "Check route map"shown in figure 5. As shown in figure 5, displays a map that includes the starting point"S" on IG), and also shows the route from the starting point (thick line in figure 5). Button "submenu appears on the bottom side of the card.

The controller 117 determines whether the selected submenu" (step Sb4), and when it is determined that the submenu has been selected, the controller 117 performs such control that the screen shown in Fig.6, is displayed in the display unit 110. As shown in Fig.6, software buttons for entering commands such as "Start route", "Enable check the current position", "Set" for different settings, and Change the route for transmission of instructions to perform another search of the route are displayed on this screen (step Sb5).

The controller 117 performs the above-described display and determines whether the button marked "on/off checking the current position (step Sb6), and when it was marked, switches the display state of the current position set at the moment, in a different display state (step Sb7). To is, when the currently set to display the current position, the controller 117 switches the display state when no current position is displayed, and when there is no display of the current position, the controller 117 switches the status to display the current position.

The controller 117 determines whether the button marked "Install the CA (step Sb8), and when the button "Setting" was selected, the display shows the screen for various settings in the display unit 110. When the user transmits an instruction to modify the installation or the like, the controller 117 performs the setting change (step Sb9).

The controller 117 determines whether the button marked "Start route" (step Sb10), and when the button "Start route" was noted, begins the direction along the selected route (step Sb11). Then, the controller 117 determines whether the button marked "Edit route" (step Sb12), and when the button "Edit route" was marked, transmits to the navigation server 300 a request to search for another route (step Sb13).

When the button "Edit route" has not been marked, the controller 117 determines whether the passed instruction to return to the main menu (step Sb14), and when this instruction was given, the screen returns to the main menu.

On the other hand, when was marked button "Check route map", and the button "Start route", in a state where it is displayed, presented in figure 3 ("No" in step Sb2), and was awarded a button "Check route map", begins the direction along the selected route (step Sb15).

When he was transferred to the instruction to start the route, the controller 117 controller 20 direction) controls the respective blocks, as described below, and provides different direction so that the user can navigate through the selected route. As shown in Fig.7, the user receives information about the beginning of the directions in the message form (step Sc1). Such a message may be transmitted by voice, by displaying on the display, or by using both display options.

After sending the start direction, the controller 117 receives information about the current position of the block 114 GOS (step Sc2), and determines rejected if the current position from the position of the selected route (step Sc3). The deviation from the selected route is determined when the deviation is greater than the preset reference value.

When it is determined that the current position deviates from the route, the controller 117 determines whether to change the selected route (step Sc4), and when you change the selected route, transmits to the navigation server, a request to execute the route search, where the current position is a departure place (step sc5 pack). On the other hand, when the selected route does not need to be changed, the process returns to step Sc2. When there is deviation, the user may be sent a message asking him to send an instruction to modify the route, and determining whether to change the selected the route, can be based on this instruction. Alternatively, the determination may be performed, depending on whether automatic rerouting to the point in time when the current position deviates from the route.

On the other hand, when determining that the current position does not deviate from the route, the controller 117 performs a process of displaying a map including the current position obtained from the block 114 GOS (step Sc6). Controlling the display of the map including the current position, described in the explanation of the configuration. The controller 117 performs control for direction on the route (step Sc7). Management direction the route is a control consisting in generating a voice message, the transmission of the notification by vibration, or display information sign and symbols in the display unit 110 when the user is at a point at a given distance from the intersection where you should turn.

The controller 117 determines whether the current position obtained from block 114, the GOS, the destination (step Sc8), and when the current position is not a destination, the process returns to step Sc2. On the other hand, when the current position is the destination, the controller 117 sends the end user with the communication on arrival at the destination (step Sc9), and ends the process direction on the route.

The navigation device 100, in accordance with the first variant execution, receives from the user an instruction to start directions for pedestrian section and receiving instructions at the beginning of the directions provides direction so that the user can move along the route of the pedestrian section using directions such as instructions on the display, voice and vibration.

In accordance with the first variant implementation, when the user specifies the place of departure (current position or arbitrarily specified point) and the destination for the request to the route search, the user transmits the route, including combined sections that use many types of movements, such as movement by foot and public transport, such as trains and buses. In the result, you can search for a connected route from the departure point to the destination, using different types of movements, and the user should not specify the conditions for the use of a certain kind of movement in this section.

In accordance with the first variant of execution can be ensured direction using voice guidance, etc. that allows the user to navigate through one route, but it is not transferred to the instruction n is the Board in other sections, in addition to the pedestrian sections (sections that use the public transport system). That is, in these sections will not be accepted instructions to execute the directions on the route, and thus, the direction is not provided.

While the user moves along the route in the section that uses the public transport system, for example, on the route section from the metro Avico to Kasumigaseki (line Takes), namely, the user is in a train, the user does not need direction, and voice direction and the direction of vibration in the train sometimes uncomfortable.

From this point of view, in accordance with the first variant of implementation, although it is possible to perform a route search using different types of movements, such as movement by foot and public transport system, is received instruction on the direction only in the pedestrian section to ensure that only those places where it is needed, instead of providing direction in all sections on the route.

When provided direction on a route from the departure point to the destination using different types of movements, is received instruction in the direction of the section in which the direction is effective (in accordance with the first variant of the run - in frederiksberggade the Noah section). When a user executes a query on the direction in this section provides direction using the voice guidance or the like. Instructions for directions is not accepted in the section where the direction is not needed or should not be provided (in accordance with the first variant execution section, which uses a train or the like), and, thus, the direction is not provided.

When using the above composition can be ensured optimal route using many types of movement, while providing direction in the partition where it is needed, but not provided in the sections where it is not needed.

The navigation device in accordance with a second embodiment of implementation of the present invention is described below. The navigation device in accordance with a second embodiment of execution has the configuration similar to the navigation device 100 (see figure 1), in accordance with the first variant implementation, but the management direction performed by the controller 117 differs from the first variant execution. In accordance with a second embodiment perform the same reference positions denoted by the same parts, and explanation is not given.

In accordance with the first variant of the implementation of the Oia, accepted instruction for directions only in the pedestrian section of the route, and when receiving the instruction, direction is provided only partition that is specified in the instructions. The controller 117 of the navigation device in accordance with a second embodiment of implementation differs from the first variant execution that he accepts the instruction, whether to provide direction individually in all sections that use different types of movements, such as movement of the foot, bus and train, and performs control so that the direction provided for the specified in the instructions section.

In accordance with a second embodiment of the run, similar to the first variant of implementation, the results of the route search are displayed in the display unit 110, a navigation device, which takes the results of the route search. One example of the results of the search of the route to be displayed in the display unit 110 of the navigation device in accordance with a second embodiment of execution, shown in Fig. As shown in Fig, in this example, four of the route (the route with departure at 15:30, arriving at 16:11, the route with departure at 15:33, arrival at 16:13" and so on) appear in the list, as search results of the route, with detailed content of the respective routes.

In accordance with a second embodiment is carried out, like the first option run routes, search for and displayed, represent the routes from the departure point to the destination, using many types of movements. More specifically, the first route includes (1) a pedestrian section (the current position of the station Nezu, exit 2), (2) the section using the Chiyoda line (from station to Nezu station Hibiya), (3) the section using the Hibiya line (from station Hibiya station, Cameco), and (4) pedestrian section (from the metro Kamiyacho, output 1 to the home (destination)). Presents details of the relevant sections of the route.

In accordance with a second embodiment of the run, when you can see the details of the route, including four sections (1)to(4), for all pedestrian sections(1), (2), (3) and (4) displays the software buttons 401, such as "Start route" and "Check out the map of the route. When the user turns on the operation unit 116 of the navigation device 100, noting the software button 401, the user can enter an instruction, such as "Start route", or "Check out the map of the route individually for the respective sections. Thus, the user may send an instruction whether to provide direction for the respective sections constituting the found route from the month is and departure to destination.

When mark the button "Start route" for a specific partition, the controller 117 receives an instruction to start directions and controls the respective units so that provided direction in this section. Content management direction similarly to the first embodiment (see Fig.7), and therefore its detailed description is not provided here.

In accordance with a second embodiment of the run, similar to the first variant implementation, when the user specifies the place of departure (current position or arbitrarily specified point) and, therefore, requests the route search, the user transmits the route, including combined sections, using many types of movements, such as movement by foot and public transport, such as trains and buses.

In accordance with a second embodiment of the execution instruction, whether to provide the direction along the entire route, including the section that use many types of movements, not accepted, but at the same time for each section is accepted, the instruction indicating whether to provide direction and thus the direction is provided only in the partition specified in the instructions. That is, the user for each partition can choose whether to provide it direction, and then the Yes direction can be provided only for partitions, specified by the user.

Individual adjustment for each section, whether to provide direction, very effective, for example, in the following case. When searching the route on which the user leaves the house, gets on the train to the nearest station (including transplant), out of the train at a station near the destination, and walking to the destination, the user is familiar with the route section from home to the nearest station. Therefore, the direction in this section is not required. However, when the user has never traveled on a route section, which uses the train, including transplant (or rarely uses this route), and also did not use the route in the pedestrian section of the station, which from coming off the train to the destination (or rarely uses this route), the direction is not required for the partition from home to the nearest station, but it is necessary for the other sections.

The present invention is not limited to the above options perform and can be variously modified, as shown for example by the following modifications.

In accordance with the first variant implementation, when the direction is provided for a route from the departure point to the destination, using different types of movements, accepted instrument to the tion areas in the pedestrian section, and when a user requests a direction, voice direction or the like is provided for the pedestrian section. On the other hand, the statement of direction section using the kinds of movements, in addition to the pedestrian crossing, not accepted, and the direction is not provided. Thus, the statement on the direction only in the pedestrian section may be adopted, and direction for partitions that use other types of movements can be excluded. However, it may be adopted a statement on effective direction in sections with the use of these species (one or many) types of movements, in addition to the pedestrian crossing (first section), and when the user submits such a statement, may be provided with direction. Alternatively, the instruction on the direction in sections that use other types of movements, in addition to these species, where the direction is not so efficient (second section), may not be adopted, so that the direction in these sections will not be provided.

In accordance with a second variant implementation, software buttons, such as "Start route" is displayed for the respective sections constituting the entire route from the departure point to the destination, and received instruction from the user. As the viola is native, providing direction can be preset for each partition, in accordance with the instructions of the user, and when the current position obtained by the block 114, the GOS, reaches the partition where you installed the software direction, the direction may start automatically.

For example, as shown in Fig.9, the user for each partition in advance instructs whether to set the direction, using each type of move, to set the content of this manual in the table setup. The controller 117 of the navigation device can be operated with reference to the table setup that automatically provides direction when the current position received through block 114 GOS, reaches the partition where you installed the software direction.

As shown in the units presented on Fig.9, found the route includes (1) a pedestrian section (from the current position to the station to NASU, exit 2), (2) partition using line Chiyoda (from Station to Nezu station Hibiya), (3) section, which uses the Hibiya line (from station Hibiya to Cameco), and (4) pedestrian section (from the metro Kamiyacho, output 1 to the home (destination)). In this case, the controller 117 of the navigation device operates as follows.

Because the table set direction is s for pedestrian section, when the current position obtained by the block 114, the GOS is in the section from the place of departure to the station to NASU, managed to provide direction. As for partitions that use the metro, a lack of direction after the current position obtained by the block 114, the GOS will reach station NASU, the direction is not provided for the partitions to the metro Kamiyacho (sections (2) and (3)). When the user reaches the metro Cameco, the controller 117 is starting direction for the partition from the metro Kamiyacho to the house.

When using the above settings, the user should not perform such an operation as the transfer instructions, whether to provide direction to the relevant partitions each time the route lookup. The direction can be automatically provided for the sections in which pre-installed the need directions.

In accordance with the first and second variants of execution of the navigation device 100 has the function of mobile phone and communicates with the navigation server 300 over the network 200 to obtain map data, search results, route, etc. However, the navigation device may have a memory unit that stores map data, and the processor of the route search, which searches for a route, which can the be obtained map data, and the process of the route search can be performed only using the navigation device.

In accordance with the first and second variants of execution of the CPU of the controller executes the process including the management direction in accordance with the program stored in the memory unit such as ROM. The program, which provides the computer of a similar process, however, may be provided to the user via the communication line such as the Internet, or such a program can be recorded on machine-readable media, such as CD-ROM (permanent memory on CD-ROM)supplied to the user. The user may be represented by the navigation device in which this process can be implemented using the special scheme of the hardware.
