The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to a device for providing information, providing information that helps the movement of a moving object, by using the display image that is installed on a moving object.

The level of technology

For moving objects, such as cars, marine vessels, known techniques provide information that helps their movement, using a navigation system equipped with a display unit of the image. For example, in a vehicle having an adapting to it of the navigation system, the display unit the image is located at a certain position in the part forming the cab in which the driver and accompanying passengers (team members)that are in the vehicle, can easily see the display image on it. For example, information representing a road map in a given region, including the distance of movement of the vehicle, show as the picture of the road map by using the display unit of the image along with the image that expresses the position, etc. of the vehicle superimposed on the image of the road map, providing, thus, information that helps the end of the road for passengers Proc. of Sportage tools.

In the navigation system of its kind installed in the vehicle containing the display unit of the image based on the image display provides information that helps his movement on the road, there is a problem in that a vibration normally encountered during movement of the vehicle, adversely affect the image displayed by the display unit of the image. The negative effects are that the image displayed in the display unit of the image becomes less clearly visible to watching his team members, and this image leads to fatigue. To solve this problem usually offer the display device information, which is used in an environment subject to vibration, equipped with means of protection against vibration (see, for example, the publication "KOKAI" No. Hei 7-261720 application for Japanese patent).

Previously proposed a display device of the image, as described above, equipped with a display unit that can display images representing the information unit training information about vibration, which measure the vibration acting on the display device information, and generate information about the vibration, and the control unit display screen, intended to control the display unit dis is LEU, in accordance with the information about vibration, obtained from preparation unit information about vibration. The control performed by the control unit display screen in relation to the display screen in the display unit, in accordance with the information about vibration, obtained from preparation unit information about vibration, as indicated, includes: control, designed to prevent modification of the relative position between the image on the display screen and the observer; the management to obtain the gradations on the basis of the color mixing of the image on the display screen; a control for the compression size of the image displayed on the display screen to reduce the amount of information to display reduced so the amount of information displayed in an enlarged view; control excluding the portion representing less importance from the image on the display screen to reduce the amount of information, and thus, the simplified display image; and management, providing the ability to move the image on the display screen, when it is typically formed on the front windscreen of the vehicle, together with the background, which, as stated, is designed to prevent the reduction of comfort view for an observer of the image obtained on the display screen, and reduce the likelihood of stimulating the Oia fatigue of the observer.

Each of several types of control performed in the above, the previously proposed device, display information, in accordance with the information of the vibration acting on the display screen in the display unit, however, has the following problems.

Control, designed to prevent modification of the relative position between the image on the display screen and the observer creates significant difficulties in the case, when the display unit, on which the generated screen image, is installed in the vehicle, and when the observer is a passenger vehicle, which controls the image on the display screen, to prevent changes its position relative to the observer or passenger, because, when the display unit is subject to vibrations, the passenger is also separately subject to vibrations. Management to obtain gradations on the basis of the color mixing of the image on the display screen can make the picture on the display screen is extremely fuzzy, and as a result, the observer may further deteriorate the view. Management to reduce the amount of image information to be displayed on the display screen, to reduce the amount of displayed information and, thus, to display an image with reduced in affect, the amount of information in a larger view, or management by exception is more important parts of the image on the display screen to reduce the amount of information and, thus, the simplified display image may lead to an insufficient amount of information, presented in the form of the displayed image, the result can be a feeling of discomfort or dissatisfaction observer. Management to ensure that you can move the image on the display screen together with the background when the image formation is usually on the front windscreen of the vehicle may lead in practice to the extreme difficulty of maintaining the position of the display screen relative to the always constant external scene, in the above-described publication "KOKAI" No. Hei 7-261720 application for Japanese patent did not see any description means of achieving this control.

Given this situation, when providing information using a display image, such assistance in the movement of a moving object, such as a vehicle moving on the road, using the display unit of the image that is installed on a moving object such as a vehicle, there is a need for an appropriate device for providing information, which would not be susceptible to the above problems, ka is estwe means to counteract the negative influence of vibration, generated by the movement of a moving object, and applied to the image displayed in the display unit of the image, because so far not been developed a device for providing information, suitably adapted to this need.

Given the above situation, the present invention is a device for providing information with the display tool image installed on a moving object such as a vehicle, and representing the display of image information, which helps the movement of a moving object, which allows you to precisely recognize the content of information that helps the movement of a moving object, represented as the image displayed in the image display even when the display tool image is placed in conditions of vibration, not less than the specified level.

In these conditions, in accordance with the signal CAG operations management, and based on the data DP of the current situation, data DCS established route and data DM map, block 19 the formation of the voice data creates a state of forming the navigation data DAG that correspond to each of the navigation points, which must be provided to set the voice data indicate on the prescribed route, expressed by the set of data DCS established route, and navigation data DAG obtained from the block 19 the formation of the voice data is passed to the block 23 of the formation of the voice signal.

Unit 23 the formation of the voice signal generates a voice signal SAG on the basis of the navigation data of the DAG. The resulting voice signal AG is passed from block 23 of the formation of the voice signal in block 24 of generating voice. As a consequence, voice output, which represents the voice guidance based on the navigation data of the DAG generated in block 19 of the formation of the voice data is produced in block 24 of generating voice.

To the unit 30 controls the operations of the connected unit 41 of the input operations, the unit 42 of the storage device program data and the sensor 44 of the vibration. Block 41 input operations performed as a block, with different buttons to control operations, the control switches and keypad, which allows the input data, and transmits the input data DX in the block 30 controls the operations running, running, for example, manually by the user. Unit 42 of the storage device program data executed as a block, in which pre maintain program operations, and which transmits data DPR program expressing a working program, in block 30 management operations, depending on the needs.

The sensor 44 vibration forms a means of detecting vibration, which detects vibration, no less than the specified level, affecting unit 22 of the image display mounted on the housing equipped vehicle, and transmits the output signal SB of the detection expressing detektiruya vibration. The output signal SB of detection obtained the sensor 44 vibration, served in the block 30 management operations.

Of these block 41 input operations, unit 42 of the storage device program data and sensor 44 vibration, the unit 42 of the storage device data of the program can be installed in the block 30 management operations.

In block 30 operations management served data DP of the current position of the block 13 detecting the current position data DCS approved route passed from block 17 installation route, and DM data card from the block 16 data storage card. Unit 30 controls operations creates a state of operation of the installation route, which allows using block 17 installation route set route from a specific start point to a specific point of destination relative to the equipped vehicle, which corresponds to the contents of the input data DX supplied from the block 41 input operations, and the status of voice navigation, which provides the ability to generate voice output voice navigation from the block 24 generating voice.

When the block 30 operations management is able to complete the installation operation route data DPR read from unit 42 of the storage device data of the program selected by the block 30 management operations, and under the pack is by providing program operations for installation of the route, expressed data DPR program in block 30 controls operations of the input data DX from the block 41 input operation associated with the operations of the user input, selected with the help of block 30 management operations, as data expressing a specific location, which should arrive the vehicle, a search condition of the route, etc. In the block 30 operations management module generating data, set up the route, form data DRD install route as the data containing the data destination, data search conditions and the like, based on the input data DX.

In parallel, the unit 30 controls the operations of transmitting CRS management operations in block 17 installation route, for the translation unit 17 install the route in the active state, and transmits the data DZ original position from the data generation source position, in block 13 of the detection of the current position. In these circumstances, data DRD installation route transmitted from the data generation installation route, in block 30, the control operations are passed to the block 17 installation route.

As a result, the route from the starting point, as the position of the equipped vehicle, expressed data DZ initial position to a certain destination Express data destination, set in block 17 installation route, based on the data DM maps from block 16 data storage card, data DP of the current position of the block 13 detecting the current position, and data DRD installation route from block 30 management operations, and, thus, form a data set DSC route in relation to the set route. Data DCS established route, expressing thus a new set itinerary, passed in block 18 of forming a data display unit 19 of the formation of the voice data, the block 20 forming data mark/sign, and the block 30 management operations.

Unit 30 controls operations in the state of voice navigation transmits a signal CAG management operations in block 19 of the formation of the voice data, and provides operation unit 19 of the formation of the voice data to generate the data DAG voice navigation, based on the data DP of the current situation, data DCS established route and data DM maps. As a result, the voice output as a voice-based navigation data DAG voice navigation, formed in the block 19 the formation of the voice data generated through the block 24 generating voice.

In the navigation system shown in figure 1, as described above, an example of device information with the accordance with the present invention is made in the form of parts, includes unit 20 generate the data mark/sign unit 22 of the image display, the unit 30 controls the operations and the sensor 44 of the vibration.

Unit 30 controls operations performs the operation control with respect to the mode of the display unit 22 of the image display, in addition to the above-described control operations. In accordance with an operation control unit 30 controls the operations data DPR read from unit 42 of the storage device program data and choose with the help of block 30 management operations, and during program operations, to modify the display mode data expressed DPR program, first select the output signal SB of the detection, when it arrives from the sensor 44 of the vibration. When the output signal SB of detection of the sensor 44 vibration indicates that the block 22 of the display image is in a constant state of vibration, which vibration is not smaller than the predetermined level continues for a period of time not shorter than a specified period, block 30 controls operations modifies one or both of the signal CV regulation and control of the means of generating a signal of regulation and control that is passed into the block 22 of the display image, and the CPM signal control mark/sign of the means generating the control signal mark/sign is which served in unit 20 generate the data mark/sign, and, thus, modifies the mode of displaying the information presented on the image display unit 22 to display the image, forming, thus, more easily readable content.

When you want to modify the signal CV regulation and control, supplied in unit 22 of the image display, the unit 30 controls the operations determines the signal CV regulation and control generated by means of generating a signal of regulation and control, as one of increasing the brightness of the screen of the display unit 22 of the image display, compared with the case where the block 22 of the display image is not in a state of constant vibration (below called "signal CV regulation and control with increased brightness").

When you want to modify the CPM signal control stamp/mark served in the block 20 forming data mark/sign unit 30 controls the operations determines the signal CPM control stamp/mark formed by means of generating a control signal mark/mark as one of producing data DMM mark/sign, which increases the size of the individual images of characters, denoting, for example, the names of different buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads on the road map within the distance of movement about radovanovi vehicle, expressed in a data DM card and private label situation of the vehicle, indicating the current position of the equipped vehicle, expressed data DP of the current situation, when it is seen on the screen of the display unit 22 to display the image (below called "signal CPM control mark/sign of increase-mark/sign") in comparison with the case where the block 22 of the display image is not in a constant state of vibration; as data, producing data DMM mark/sign, with a larger difference in contrast between the image with high importance and the image of lesser importance (below called "signal CPM control mark/sign with increasing difference contrast"), assuming, for example, on the screen of the display unit 22 of the display image of high contrast is assigned to a section along the established route, the Express data DCS established route on the road map within the distance of movement of the equipped vehicle, expressed data DM maps that the low contrast is assigned to a site located at a distance from the site with high contrast, and that intermediate contrast assigned stations located between them; and how the data simultaneously performs the function of a CPM signal control mark/sign of increase-mark/the Naka and the CPM signal control mark/sign with increasing difference contrast (below called "control signal mark/sign of increase-the difference between contrast and magnification-mark/sign").

For the case when the signal CV regulation and control, supplied from the means generating a signal regulating and control unit 30 controls the operations in block 22 of the display image, defined as the increase in brightness, the signal CV regulation and control, on the screen of the display more vivid and clear image in block 22 of the display image for the entire image And a road map expressing a road map, shown in figure 2, images In a proprietary marks the position of the vehicle, which is imposed on him, expressing the current position of the equipped vehicle, images, expressing the established route, and images of signs indicating the names assigned to various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And card. Therefore, it should be understood that the image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, the image expressing the prescribed route, and images of signs indicating the names assigned to various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And cards, all of which are necessary to assist in the movement of the equipped vehicle, can be clearly detected the VAT, even when the unit 22 of the display image is in a constant state of vibration, and vibration is not less than a predetermined level continues for a period of time not shorter than a specified period of time.

For the other case, when the signal CPM control stamp/mark supplied from the means generating the control signal mark/sign unit 30 controls the operations in block 20 forming data mark/mark asked as the CPM signal control mark/sign of increase-mark/sign, as shown in figure 3, only the image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, and images of signs indicating the names assigned to various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And maps, images And a road map image In mark's own situation of the vehicle, imposed on him, expressing the current position of the equipped vehicle, the image From the fixed route, and images of signs indicating the names assigned to various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And the map display with the increase on unit screen 22 of the display image, which is supplied from the images, based on the data DSP display the image from the block 18 forming the display data, which includes data DMM mark/sign of the block 20 forming data mark/sign. Therefore, it should be understood that the image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, images of signs indicating the names assigned to various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And cards, all of which are especially needed to assist in the movement of the equipped vehicle, one can clearly recognize, even when the unit 22 of the display image is in a state of prolonged vibration in which the vibration is not less than the specified level, continues for a period of time not shorter than a specified period of time.

For the other case, when the signal CPM control stamp/mark supplied from the means generating the control signal mark/sign unit 30 controls the operations in block 20 forming data mark/mark asked as the CPM signal control mark/sign with increasing difference contrast, as shown in figure 4, the area along the image expressing the prescribed route, display with high contrast, the site at a distance from the image expressing the prescribed route, otobrazhayut low contrast, and the plot, which is located between the area along the image expressing the set route, and a block located at a distance from the image expressing the prescribed route, display intermediate contrast, the display unit 22 of the display image, which serves the image, based on data from the DSP of the displayed image from the block 18 forming a data display that serves data DMM mark/sign of the block 20 forming data mark/sign. In other words, the display unit 22 of the image display increases the difference in contrast between the image that is associated with information of high importance, and the image associated with the information of low importance. Thus, it is clear that the image In the label's own transport position, the image expressing the prescribed route, and the image of signs indicating the names assigned to the various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the established route, all of which are especially needed to assist in the movement of the equipped vehicle, one can clearly recognize, even when the unit 22 of the display image is in a state of continued vibration in which the vibration is not less than the specified level, continues for the period of the time, not shorter than a specified period.

In one case, when the signal CPM control mark/sign supplied from the means generating the control signal mark/sign, in the control unit 30 operations in block 20 forming data mark/mark specified by the control signal mark/sign of increase-the difference between contrast and magnification-mark/sign, as shown in figure 5, only the image To mark their own situation of the vehicle and an image of characters, denoting the names assigned to the various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And the map image And the road map, the image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, imposed on him, expressing the current position of the equipped vehicle, the image From the fixed route, and images of signs indicating the names of specified different buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the private roads shown on the image And map display with magnification, and the area along the image expressing the established route display with higher contrast, a site located away from the image expressing the established route display with low contrast, and the Astok between plot along the image, expressing the set route, and a block located at a distance from the image expressing the prescribed route, display intermediate contrast, the display unit 22 of the image display, which shows the image, based on data from DSP display the image from the block 18 forming display data, which were transmitted data DMM mark/sign of the block 20 forming data mark/sign. Thus, it is possible to understand that image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, and images of signs indicating the names of specified different buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the established route, and they are especially needed to assist in the movement of the equipped vehicle, one can clearly recognize, making them particularly visible image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, the image expressing the prescribed route, and images of signs indicating the names of the various buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the established route, even when the unit 22 of the display image is in a state of continued vibration, and this vibration is not less than the specified level, continues for the period of the time, not shorter than a specified period of time.

For the case when simultaneously modified as a signal CV regulation and control, supplied from the means generating a signal regulation and control unit 30 controls the operations in block 22 of the display image and signal CPM control stamp/mark supplied from the means generating the control signal mark/sign unit 30 controls the operations in block 20 forming data mark/sign, signal CV regulation and control is passed as signal CV regulation and control with increased brightness, and the CPM signal control stamp/mark serves as the CPM signal control mark/sign with the increase in the mark/the mark, with an increase in the difference-contrast, or increase in the mark/the mark and the increase in the difference between the contrast. In this case, it should be understood that any combination of signal CV regulation-and-control and signal CPM control mark/sign permit clearly recognize an image To mark their own situation of the vehicle, the image expressing the prescribed route, and images of signs indicating the names of specified different buildings, objects, etc. and place names that appear along the established route, presents the image As a road map, and all of them are person is but necessary to assist in the movement of the equipped vehicle, on unit screen 22 of the display image, as described above, when the block 22 of the display image is placed in the status of the ongoing vibration in which the vibration continues for a period of time not shorter than a specified period of time.

When the output signal SB of the detection sensor 44 vibration transitions to a state that does not indicate that the block 22 of the display image is in a constant state of vibration, which vibration is not less than the specified level, continues for a period of time not shorter than a specified period of time, the unit 30 to control the operation restores the original state of all or any one of the signal CV regulation-and-control and signal CPM control mark/sign, after being modified, as described above, which provides the state in which the output signal SB of the detecting means vibration, no less than the specified level, in block 22 of the display image, continuing for a specified period of time.

Unit 30 controls the operations shown in figure 1, providing the ability to perform the above-described control operations, usually performed using a microcomputer. Figure 6 shows the block diagram of the sequence of operations, representing an example of a processing program executed by the microcomputer, the status is engaged in block 30 of operations management to perform management operations, to modify the mode of the display unit 22 to display the image.

In accordance with the flowchart of the sequence of operations shown in Fig.6, after the start at step 51 determines if the output signal SB of the detection sensor 44 vibration or not, and this determination is repeated until the output signal SB of detection.
