The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to systems and programs posting on the route.

The level of technology

In known navigation devices, when the driver enters a destination and sets the search condition, the processing of the route search is performed based on the search conditions, resulting on the basis of the map data to find the route from the starting point, which is indicated by the location held by the vehicle to the destination. In addition, the route that was found, i.e. the found route is shown along with the location held by the vehicle on the map screen, which is formed in the imaging unit, and the vehicle is found on the route that is posted on the route. Thus, the driver is allowed to hold the vehicle on the displayed route.

However, when passing through the intersection on the found route when the road forming the found route has many bands, on a predetermined screen, which is formed in the display unit, displays a list of bands that serves as card transactions bands (see, for example, patent document 1).

Figure 1 presents an example of our the Oia standard list of bands, as figure 2 shows an example of displaying a list of bands taking into account the connections between the bars.

In this case, as the site display a list of bands set the plot in a region lying at a predetermined distance from the location of the pursued vehicle, and the list Ls1 bands form for each intersection on the site display a list of the bands that has a alarm system for traffic control. The reference position r1 denotes a road, Lk1 refers to a group of bands containing the connecting roads from the position held by the vehicle to the intersection "Umedashinmichi", Lk2 refers to a group of bands containing the connection road from the crossroads "Umedashinmichi" up the junction "Oebashi Minamizume", Lk3 refers to a group of bands containing the connection road from the crossroads "Oebashi Minamizume" up the junction "Yodoyabashi Kitazume, and Lk4 refers to a group of bands containing the connection road from the crossroads "Yodoyabashi Kitazume" up the junction "Yodoyabashi".

Group Lk1 bands includes bands with k1 through k5, group Lk2 bands includes bands with k11 on k18, group Lk3 bands includes bands with k21 for k28 and group Lk4 bands includes bands with k31 for k38, and each of the groups with Lk1 on Lk4 as recommended lanes are recommended to move bars are displayed k2, k11, k21 and k31 for each connection roads.

Chrome is also in the list Ls1 bands for each of the bands with k1 through k5, k11 on k18, k21 for k28 and k31 for k38 determine the areas of traffic, which indicate the forward direction, and for each site traffic provides the arrows indicate the direction of traffic, i.e., the direction of travel, at each of the intersections.

In particular, the lines k1 and k31 are evapourate strips and provided the arrow, indicating that these bands are evapourate stripes. Lanes k2, k11 and k32 are evapourate and end-to-end strips, for which there are arrows indicating that these bands are evapourate and end-to-end. Strip k3, k4, k12 on k16, k21 for k28 and c k33 on k36 are lanes through traffic, for which there are arrows indicating that these bands are cross-cutting. Strip k5 and k37 are right turn and through lanes, for which there are arrows indicating that these bands are right turn and through. Strip k17, k18 and k38 are right turn lanes, for which there are arrows indicating that these bands are right turn.

In addition, since the band k2, k11, k21 and k31 are recommended stripes, they are displayed with different background color surrounding the arrows, so that they can be easily distinguished from other bands.

Thus, the found route is those in the case when at the crossroads "Yodoyabashi" is a left turn after the vehicle drove down the road r1 to the junction "Yodoyabashi"a direction on a particular band is performed so that the vehicle passed right through several bands in the following order: k2, k11, k21 and k31. It should be noted that the intersection "Yodoyabashi" is found in the route and is guiding an intersection where the vehicle is instructed to perform a left turn, right turn or move right.

However, as shown in figure 2, on a real road r1 because of the connection strips k2 and k14, k11 and k23, k21 and k31 when you try pursued the vehicle to move along the lanes k2, k11, k21 and k31, which featured bands held the vehicle moves along the strip k2 connection roads from the position held by the vehicle to the intersection "Umedashinmichi", drives the lane and k14 at the crossroads "Umedabashinmichi", goes with the band k14 on the strip k11 on the connection road between the crossroads "Umedashinmichi" and crossing "Oebashi Minamizume"shares on the strip k23 at the crossroads "Oebashi Minamizume", goes with the band k23 on the strip k21 on the connection road between the crossroads "Oebashi Minamizume" and crossing "Yodoyabashi Kitazume", enter the band k31 at the crossroads "Yodoyabashi Kitazume", moves along the strip 31 on the connecting road between the crossroads "Yodoabashi Kitazume" and crossing "Yodoyabashi", and then turns left at the intersection "Yodoyabashi".

Thus, the driver can review the list of bands taking into account the connections between the strips of groups Lk1-Lk4 bands for each of the compounds of the roads, so he will be able to determine whether the moving lanes in each node of the roads, and how to move between lanes in each road link, so that at each intersection, such as intersections, shown in figure 2, contact connections of roads, where is the entrance to the intersection, i.e. the entry road, and the road where there is a crossroads for travel, there is an exit road.

The results of the inventions

According to the present invention in the case where the number of lanes in the lane, taking into account the connection between the bands exceeds the number of bands, which was installed in the display unit, select the pre-defined bands in the list of bands and display only the selected band. Thus, strip, show that there is no great need, can be removed from the display area. Therefore, there is the ability to reliably display the main part of the list of bands taking into account the connections between the bands. In addition, since there is no need to reduce the size of each of the visualized bands, it is possible to prevent the deterioration of the visibility of the lane.

Thus, in the information center 51 is provided, for example, the server 53, a communication unit 57 connected to the server 53, and a database (DB) 58, which serves as a unit of account information, and the server 53 is supplied, for example, a CPU 54, serving as a control unit and arithmetic unit, memory, RAM, ROM 55 and 56. In addition, in the database 58 write data, similar to the different types of data that are stored in block 16 of the data record.

It should be noted that the navigation system, the unit 17 for processing the navigation blocks CPU 31 and 54, the server 53, etc. act as the computer alone or in combination of two or more blocks and perform and efoticasey processing on the basis of different types of programs, data, etc. in Addition, the unit 16 records the data storage device, RAM 32 and 55, the ROM 33 and 56, the database 58, flash memory, etc. form a recording environment. In addition, as an arithmetic unit, instead of blocks of the CPU 31 and 54, as the arithmetic unit can be used microprocessor unit (MPU) or the like

Next is explained the basic principles of operation of the navigation system having the structure described above.

First, when the driver operates the operation unit 34 and activates the navigation device 14, a processor for initiating navigation (not shown) in the block of the CPU 31 performs the processing for initiating navigation, which reads the location of the pursued vehicle, which was detected by the GPS sensor 15, and the direction of the pursued vehicle, which was determined by the sensor 18 direction, and then initializes various data types. Then, the tool handle negotiation (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing agreement and specifies the location of the pursued vehicle by determining whether the pursued vehicle on any road link based on the read location of the pursued vehicle, contours and configuration of each connection roads, which is passed form the road in the vicinity of that place, where is held the vehicle, etc.

In addition, in the present embodiment of the invention, the tool handle negotiation optionally specifies the location of the pursued vehicle based on the locations of salient features of the environment, which are the objects photographed by the rear camera 49.

The means of processing image recognition (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing of the image recognition, and image data read from the rear chamber 49, and the image that is composed of image data recognized by the characteristic details of the environment. In addition, the processing means to calculate the distance (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing for calculating the distance and calculates the actual distance from the rear chamber 49 to the characteristic parts of the environment on the basis of their position in the image. In addition, the means of processing to set the location of the pursued vehicle means the reconciliation process performs processing to set the location of the pursued vehicle, reads the above-mentioned distance, obtains the coordinates of the characteristic features of the environment and by reading the data about the characteristic details of the environment of the block 16 data entry, specifies the location of the pursued vehicle on the new specified coordinates and distances.

In addition, the means of processing for setting lanes (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing for setting lanes and similarly specifies the location of the pursued vehicle by reference to specific details of the environment, recognition of which was made on the basis of the image data and data about the characteristic details of the environment and data about the bands that have been read from unit 16 writes data, and determines the driving lane on which the vehicle based on the location of this ongoing vehicle.

It should be noted that the processing for the job lane reads the output of the sensor to the Earth's magnetic field (not shown) and, based on the output of the sensor determines whether there are any objects that contain ferromagnetic material, for example, sunroof, on a pre-defined band on the road, and then may set the traffic lane on the basis of the results of this definition. In addition, the location of the pursued vehicle can be determined with high accuracy by using high-precision GPS sensor, and based on the obtained results it is possible to determine the lane in which the vehicle is moving. In addition, you can optionally ODA is to share the lane by processing the image data, regarding the marks on the strip, while combining the output of the sensor the magnetic field of the Earth and location data held by the vehicle.

Next, the processing for obtaining basic information (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing for obtaining basic information and either reads and collects data card from the unit 16 records the data, or receives and collects map data from the information center 51 via the communication unit 38. It should be noted that in the case of receiving the map data, for example, from the information center 51, the processing means to obtain basic information loads the received map information in the flash memory.

In addition, the means of processing display (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing and display forms in block 35 of the display screens of various types. For example, a means of processing the map display tool display processing performs processing to display the map and generates a display unit 35 displays the map screen displays a map of the surrounding area on this screen, and also displays the location of the pursued vehicle and its direction of motion.

Thus, the driver is able to drive the vehicle according to the maps, location held by the vehicle and the direction of motion is carried out of the vehicle.

In addition, when the driver enters a destination by using the operating unit 34, a means of processing the installation destination (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing installation destination for the installation destination. It should be noted that if necessary, you can enter and set the place of departure. In addition, you can pre-register for specific locations and as a destination to install these recorded sites. Further, when the driver via the operating unit 34 enters a search condition, a means of handling the setup of the search conditions (not shown) in the block of the CPU 31 performs the processing of setting the terms of the search and sets the search condition.

When specified explicitly set the destination and the search condition, the means of processing of searching for a route (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the processing of the route search, reads the location of the pursued vehicle, the destination, the search condition and the like, reads the search data and the like from block 16 write data, and based on the location of the pursued vehicle, destination, data search and other searches for a route from the departure point, which specifies the location of the pursued vehicle to the destination using the search criteria and displays information about the route to the show that found the route. In this case, the route is set as the found route is a route for which total costs, which contributes to each of the connections of roads, are the smallest.

In addition, you can perform the processing of the route search in the information center 51. In this case, the CPU 31 transmits the location held by the vehicle, the destination, the search condition and the like in the information center 51 via the communication unit 38 and the network 63. When the information center 51 receives the location held by the vehicle, the destination, the search condition and the like, the means of processing of searching for a route (not shown) in the CPU 54 performs the processing of the route search, similar to the processing in the CPU 31 reads the search data and the like from the database 58 and location-based pursued vehicle, destination, and data search finds routes from the departure point to the destination using the search criteria, and then displays information about the routes that indicate the discovered routes. Next, the processing of the transmission (not shown) in the CPU 54 performs processing of transmission and transmits route data to the navigation device 14 via the network 63.

The tool then processing for the transaction on the route (not shown) in the CPU 31 performs the necessary processing for the wire and along the route and carries out a transaction on the route. Thus, the means of processing the route is displayed in the means of processing transactions on the route handles the display of the route, reads the information about the route and displays the found route on the map screen according to the route.

In this regard, when such wiring route when at a predetermined intersection essential guides commands to steer the vehicle to the left, right or straight, this intersection is set as a guiding point and as a guide intersection. Thus, the processing means for mounting the guide intersection in the means of processing transactions on the route performs processing for setting the guide intersection and, depending on the route data, i.e. on the basis of the found route, determines whether there is an intersection, which requires vehicles turning left, right or forward. In the case when there is an intersection, which requires vehicles turning left, right or forward, this intersection is set as the guide intersection.

Next, the processing for forming the image guide item in the means of processing transactions on the route performs the processing for the formation of the deposits of the enlarged image of the sending item, and before the vehicle arrives at the guide intersection, in a predetermined area of the screen with the map is formed an enlarged view of the junction, which serves as the enlarged image of the sending item, and is posted on the route using this enlarged image of the intersection. To post on the route after installation location of the display of the enlarged image of the sending item in place, spaced at a set distance before the guide intersection of the found route (to the side of the location held by the vehicle), and the arrival of the vehicle at the location of the display of the enlarged image of the sending item, displays an enlarged image of the intersection.

In this case, the enlarged image of the intersection is displayed, for example, a map of the surroundings of the guide intersection, found the route and landmarks, such as buildings, which serve as indicators to guide intersection. It should be noted that on the motorway city motorway, toll road, dedicated to vehicles, for example, on the same road with fares as guides set intersections intersections, which is connected to the e roads, their branching or similar

In addition, the means of processing for setting places the transaction on the route in the means of processing transactions on the route performs processing for setting places the transaction on the route, and set the distance before the guide intersection found on the route are one or more, or, as in the present invention, found many places, and in that moment, when the vehicle reaches any of these places, a means of processing the output in the medium for processing the transaction on the route performs processing output, and for directing the intersections of the block 37 output displays the audio information, in particular, phrase, indicate the direction of movement.

Thus, the phrase for posting the strips are set in advance for each combination of lane and the recommended lane or for parts of the journey from the place of posting of the bands before the guide intersection, etc. that are recorded in the form of cards with phrases for the transaction of the bands in block 16 of the data record.

In addition, when found in the route included a road with multiple lanes, the means of processing for the transaction of the bands in the means of processing transactions on the route performs the processing for the transaction of the bands and reads the found routes. Read data lane is crestco, information about the bands and the like, and the wiring of the bands is performed on the basis of the found routes, intersection, data strips, etc. Thus, the means of processing installation featured bands in the means of processing for the transaction of the bands performs processing installation featured bands and sets the recommended lane in each road link based on the direction of travel, which selectively indicates a left turn, right turn or move forward on each of the guide intersections found on the route, based on the location of the stripes on the road going with the guide intersection, etc.

In addition, a means of processing the display of bands in the means of processing for the transaction of the bands performs the processing of the display strips, splits the screen block 35 of the display into two parts (left and right) for forming the first and second guides screens, sets the first guide screen as a block map display, sets the second guide screen as a display unit of the bands and displays the map in the map display, and also displays in the display unit of the bands list of bands that serves as card transactions bands. It should be noted that the means of processing of the display strips can set the display unit of the bands on the plot screen to the of RTOs in block 35 of the display and to display a list of bands in the display unit of the bands.

In addition, the means of processing of the display strips reads the recommended number of lanes and displays the recommended lane in the group of bands for each of the compounds of the roads in the list of bands. In the present invention the recommended strip shows, for example, with a different background color surrounding the arrow that indicates the direction of motion in a straight line, so that it was possible to distinguish this band from other bands. In addition, the arrow can be displayed in a manner different from the arrows of the other bands.

Then, the tool guide processing means of processing transactions bands performs processing associated with the transaction, reads the lane of processing tools specifications lanes and recommended reads a strip of processing tools to calculate the recommended lane, and then based on the location of the pursued vehicle calculates the distance from the location of the pursued vehicle to the guide intersection, accesses the map with guides and phrases reads guides phrases that match the current lane to the recommended lane and the distance.

In addition, the tool guide processing activates the device for synthesizing speech, displays guides phrases synthesized voice from the speaker unit 37 AU is Ivywood and directs the vehicle to strip of its movement to the recommended lane.

Next is explained the operation of the means to handle the display of the bands.

First processing means for mounting the list of bands in the means of processing of the display strips performs processing for setting the list of bands, it reads the location of the pursued vehicle, the data of the road data about the intersection and the like, as the site for a list of bands set to area within a predetermined distance before the location is undertaken vehicles at the site and the list of bands creates a list of bands for each connection roads before each intersection.

In this regard, in case the e, when the section list the bands, there is only one intersection, you can visualize the list of bands for compounds roads before this intersection, as it is. However, it is possible that you will not be able to display the strip as it is, given its size in the case when the section list the bands there are two or more intersections, and the list of bands is the list in which you can move right in without moving lanes from the entrance road to the exit road at every intersection, and this list takes into account the connection between the bands, so you can connect the entrance road to exit.

Thus, the processing means to determine compounds in the treatment method of the display strips performs processing for determining compounds and, as shown in Figure 5, determines whether the list of bands list, which takes into account the connection between the bars.

As shown in Figure 5, the reference position Ls11 refers to the list of bands, and this list is Ls11 bands formed by each of the intersections of the "XX South", "YY North" and "ZZ Bridge", which are located within the area display a list of the bands and have a traffic light signalization, and "ZZ Bridge" is the guide intersection, where you will be prompted for a left turn on the found route. In addition, the reference position r11 refers to the way Lk11 belongs to the group of strips, which consists of connecting roads from the location held by the vehicle to the intersection "XX South", Lk12 belongs to the group of strips, which consists of connecting roads from the junction "XX South to the intersection "YY North", and Lk13 belongs to the group of strips consisting of compounds of the roads from the junction "YY North to the intersection "ZZ Bridge.

Group Lk11 bands includes bands from m1 through m8, group Lk12 bands includes bands with m11 on m18 and group Lk13 bands includes bands with m21 on m28, and each of the groups of strips with Lk11 on Lk13 as recommended bands appear lanes m1, m12 and m21.

In addition, the list Ls11 strips installed site traffic, which indicated the way forward for each of the bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on m28, and provided the arrow (not shown)indicating the direction of forward movement on each site traffic.

In addition, the lines m1, m12 and m21 are recommended by the bands, so they are displayed with different background color surrounding the arrow, so that these bands can be distinguished from other bands.

Thus, in the case of the left turn at the crossroads "ZZ Bridge" after the direct road r11 to the intersection "ZZ Bridge found on the route, the vehicle is an indication of a consistent passing lanes m1, m12 and m21.

In this regard, on the road r11, as the show is about figure 5, when connected bands m1 and m13 and connected strip m12 and m21, when the vehicle is on the recommended bands m1, m12 and m21 on the road link from the location held by the vehicle to the intersection "XX South" is the vehicle moves along the strip m1, then enter the strip m13 at the crossroads "XX South", goes with the band m13 on the m12 band on the connection road between the crossroads "XX South" and crossing "YY North", enter the lane m21 at the crossroads "YY North", moves along the strip on m21 the connection road between the crossroads "YY North" and crossing "ZZ Bridge and turn left at the crossroads "ZZ Bridge.

Thus, the list Ls11 bands displayed including the connections between the strips with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on m28 between groups Lk11 and Lk13 strips on each of the connections of roads, so that at each intersection, for example, those shown in Figure 5, the entrance road, which provide entry into the intersection and the exit road, which provide the exit of the intersection, are linked so that the driver can determine whether you need to change the band on each of the connections of the roads and how should change lanes.

In addition, when the list Ls11 bands is a list that takes into account the connection between the bands with m1 through m8, m11 18 and m21 on m28, the processing means to determine the area of visualisation and the means of processing of the display strips performs processing for determining the field of visualization and determines larger than the size of the list Ls11 bands maximum visualization of the imaging unit of the bands, that is, determines whether the number of bands in the list Ls11 bands the number of bands, which was set in block 35 of the display.

For example, when a list Ls11 strips, such as shown in Figure 5, the number of bands located between the extreme left lane of the m11 and the extreme right lane m8 from a number of bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on m28, is 10, and the size of the list Ls11 bands exceeds the maximum visualization of the imaging unit of the bands.

Thus, the processing means to adjust the display area in the means of processing of the display strips performs processing for adjusting the display area, and is regulated by the list display area of the strips, so that it corresponded to the maximum of the rendering area, based on the structure of groups of strips of connection roads, or, as in the present embodiment of the invention, based on the provisions of the recommended bands in the compounds of the roads before the guide intersection choose a pre-defined band and is display only these selected bands. In this case, the processing means to adjust the display area forms the means of processing for selecting the bands and the processing means for selecting bands performs is the processing, providing the selection of certain bands.

In addition, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands in the tool handle to adjust the display area performs processing for determining the position of the recommended bands and determines the position of the recommended bands in the compounds of the roads before the guide intersection, that is, figure 5 that the provisions of the recommended bands in the connection roads of the intersection "ZZ Bridge.

Thus, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands reads the information about the intersection, and information about the bands and the like, and in the group of strips of connection roads before the guide intersection is compared to the number of bands to the left of the recommended bands number of bands right from the recommended lane. In the case where the number of lanes to the right exceeds the number of lanes on the left, determine that the recommended lane on the road link goes to the left, and in the case when the number of lanes on the right is less than the number of lanes on the left, determine that the recommended lane in the road link goes to the right, and when the number of bands on the left and the number of lanes on the right are equal, determines that the recommended lane is in the center of the connection roads.

For example, as shown in Fig.6, when the group of bands soedineniya before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n8 and the recommended lane is the lane n3, the number of bands to the left of the recommended bandwidth is 2 and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended lane is 5. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended lane determines that the recommended lane is the road link on the left.

For example, as shown in Fig.7, when the group lane connection road before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n7 and the recommended lane is the lane n6, the number of lines left from the recommended lane is 5, and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bandwidth is equal to 1. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended lane determines that the recommended lane is the road link on the right.

In addition, as shown in Fig, in the case where the group of strips of connection roads before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n7 and the recommended lane is the lane n4, the number of bands on the left and the number of bands to the right of the recommended bandwidth is equal to one and the other 3. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended lane determines that the recommended lane is in the center of the connection roads.

It should be noted that in the case when there are many of the recommended bands, the processing means to determine the position the of the recommended bands performs the determination by comparing the number of lanes to the left of the recommended bands the number of bands to the right of the recommended bands.

For example, as shown in Fig.9, when the group lane connection road before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n8 and recommended stripes are stripes n3 and n4, the number of lanes to the left of the recommended bands is 2 and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands is 5. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands determines that the recommended lines are located to the left of the road link.

For example, as shown in Figure 10, when the group lane connection road before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n8 and recommended stripes are stripes with n1 and n7, the number of lanes to the left of the recommended bands is 0 (zero), and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands is equal to 1. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands determines that the recommended lines are located to the left of the road link.

In addition, as shown in figure 11, when the group lane connection road before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n8 and recommended stripes are stripes with n4 through n6, the number of lanes to the left of the recommended bands is 3, and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands is equal to 2. In this case, the processing means to determine the position re komendovannymi bands determines what is the recommended lines are located right in the connection roads.

In addition, as shown in Fig, in the case where the group of strips of connection roads before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n7 and recommended lanes are lanes n4 and n5, the number of lanes to the left of the recommended bands is 3, and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands is equal to 2. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands determines that the recommended lines are located right in the connection roads.

In addition, as shown in Fig, in the case where the group of strips of connection roads before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n7 and recommended stripes are stripes with n3 through n5, the number of lines left from the recommended lane, and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands is there 2. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands determines that the recommended lines are located in the center of the connection roads.

In addition, as shown in Fig, in the case where the group of strips of connection roads before the guide intersection consists of bands with n1 through n5 and recommended stripes are stripes with n1 through n5, the number of lines left from the recommended lane, and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bands and there it is 0. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended bands determines that the recommended lines are located in the center of the connection roads.

Thus, when the position of the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection, the processing means for determining the display area in the tool handle to adjust the display area performs processing for determining the display area, and the result of the determination in the processing position of the recommended lane-based position of the list of bands is determined by the list display area of the bands.

In particular, in connection roads before the guide intersection when the recommended strip is left in the connection roads, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive on the left side of the road in relation to the position held by the vehicle relative to the recommended strip on the guide intersection. Thus, the processing means for determining the display area defines the display area so that among the bands in the list of bands leftmost strip will fit in the case, when the recommended lane is the road link on the left.

In addition, in connection roads before the guide intersection if, when the recommended lane is on the right side in the connection roads, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive on the right side of the road in relation to the position held by the vehicle to the recommended strip on the guide intersection. Thus, when the recommended lane is on the right side in the connection roads, the means of processing for determining the display area defines the display area so that among the bands in the list of bands fit the far right lane.

In addition, in connection roads before the guide intersection when the recommended lane is in the center of the connection roads, processing means for determining the display area defines a region of the display based on the direction of the exit of the guide intersection.

That is, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is to the left, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive on the left side of the road from the location of the pursued vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, when the found route is set so that the vehicle will perform a left turn, the means of the processing for determining the display area defines the display area so, so among the bands in the list of bands fit the leftmost lane.

In addition, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the right direction, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive on the right side of the road from the location of the pursued vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, when the found route is set so that the vehicle will perform a right turn, the means of processing for determining the display area sets the display area so that among the bands in the list of bands fit the far right lane.

In addition, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the right direction, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive through the centre of the road from the location held by the vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, when the found route is set so that the vehicle will move straight, the processing means for determining the display area sets the display area so that it would fit the middle part of the lane.

It should mark the th in the case when the recommended lane is in the centre of the road link, the processing means for determining the display area may determine the display area to accommodate groups of bands in the connection roads before the guide intersection. In addition, when the recommended lane is in the centre of the road link, it is generally preferable that the vehicle was moving on the left side, and then the processing means for determining the display area can define the display area, so that it would fit the leftmost lanes of the number of bands in the lane. In addition, when the recommended lane is in the center of the connection roads, processing means for determining the display area may determine the display area after removal of the strips from the left side and right side, so that in the display area fit the middle part of the number of bands in the lane.

Therefore, as shown, for example, on Fig, in the case where the group of strips of connection roads of the intersection "ZZ Bridge", which guides the intersection consists of bands with m21 on m28, and band m21 is the recommended lane, the number of lines left from the recommended bandwidth is 0 and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended lane is 7. In this the m case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended lane determines what is the recommended lane is to the left of the road link.

In addition, processing means for determining the display area defines the display area so that it fits the leftmost lane m11 from the list Ls11 bands number of bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on m28. As a result of the display area of the removed strip m7, m8 and m28.

In addition, as shown, for example, on Fig, when recommended by the stripes are stripes m6, m18 and m26, the group of compounds roads before crossing "ZZ Bridge", which guides the intersection consists of bands with m21 on m27, as recommended by the band is the band m26. Thus, the number of lines left from the recommended lane is 6 and the number of lanes to the right of the recommended bandwidth is equal to 1. In this case, the processing means to determine the position of the recommended lane determines that the recommended lane is on the right side in the connection roads.

In addition, processing means for determining the display area defines the display area, so that it would fit the extreme right lane m8 from the list Ls11 bands number of bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and c m21 on m28.

In this way the display area of the list of bands is determined on the basis of the position of the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection, and stripes, so is b which is not necessary, the removed from the display area. Thus, it is possible to reliably display the main part of the list of bands, taking into account the connection between the bars.

In addition, since there is no need to reduce the size of each of the visualized bands, it is possible to prevent the deterioration of the visibility of the lane.

Next is illustrated the block diagram in Figure 4.

Step S1: Determines whether the list of bands list, taking into account the connection. In the case when the list of bands takes into account the connection, the process proceeds to step S2, and when the lane is not a list of the bands, taking into account the connection, the process proceeds to stage a Return.

Step S2: is Determined whether the size of the list of bands for maximum visualization. When the size of the list of bands exceeds the maximum area of visualization, the process goes to step S3, and when the size of the list of bands is less than or equal to the maximum field of visualization, the process proceeds to stage a Return.

Step S3: the Determined position of the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection.

Step S4: based On the position of the recommended lane is determined by region to be displayed, and the process proceeds to stage a Return.

Next explained is the second variant of implementation of this is part II of the invention. It should be noted that part, the structure of which is identical to the similar parts of the first variant implementation, denoted by the same reference position, and results of the invention, which occur due to the identical structure, are part of the results of implementation of this option.

On Fig presents a flowchart illustrating operation processing tools display strips in the second embodiment of the present invention. On Fig presents a drawing illustrating a display example of the list of bands, taking into account the connection between the bands, in the second embodiment of the present invention. On Fig presents the first drawing illustrating a display example of the list of bands in the second embodiment of the present invention. On Fig presents the second drawing illustrating a display example of the list of bands in the second embodiment of the present invention. On Fig presents the third drawing illustrating a display example of the list of bands in the second embodiment of the present invention.

In this case the group Lk11 consists of bands with m1 through m8, group Lk12 consists of bands with m11 on m18 and group Lk13 consists of bands with m21 on m27, and in groups of bands with Lk11 on Lk13 as recommended bands appear strips m3, m12 and m24.

In addition, in the present the embodiment, the processing means to adjust the display area adjusts the display area of the list of bands, so that it corresponded to the maximum of the rendering area, based on the structure of the group of bands in the connection roads, or, as in the present embodiment, on the basis of the direction of travel on guide intersection, and the specified processing means selects the predetermined band and displays only the selected band.

In addition, the processing means to determine the direction of travel in the tool handle to adjust the display area performs processing for determining the direction of travel, resulting in a determined direction of travel at the intersection, i.e. the direction of travel at the crossroads "ZZ Bridge" in the example on Fig. Thus, the processing means to determine the direction of the exit reads the information about the intersection, and information about the bands and the like, determines the direction of travel on guide intersection and determines whether the direction of travel direction of left, right or ahead of them.

Further, when the direction of travel on guide intersection, the processing for determining the direction of travel, in this case, the processing means for determining the display area determines the display area of the list of bands on the basis of the orientation direction of the exit.

In particular, when the direction of travel on guide PE is crestco is the direction to the left, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will go to the left along the road from the location of the pursued vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, the processing means for determining the display area defines the display area, so that it hit the left-most band among the bands in the list of bands in the case when the direction of travel on guide intersection is to the left.

In addition, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the right direction, we can assume that there is a high probability that the driver will drive right across the street from the location of the pursued vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, the processing means for determining the display area defines the display area, so that it got the right band among the bands in the list of bands in the case when the direction of travel on guide intersection is to the right.

In addition, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the forward direction, it is considered that there is a high probability that the driver will drive to the Central part of the road from the place which the provisions of the pursued vehicle to the recommended lane in the connection roads before the guide intersection. Thus, the processing means for determining the display area defines the display area, so she came in the middle part of the list of bands in the case when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the forward direction.

It should be noted that when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the forward direction, the processing means for determining the display area may determine the display area to accommodate all groups of the compounds of the roads before the guide intersection. In addition, when the direction of travel on guide intersection is the forward direction, the processing means for determining the display area can usually determine the display area to accommodate the left-most lane of the number of bands in lane, since it is preferable that the vehicle was moving on the left side of the road.

Therefore, as shown, for example, on Fig, when the strip with m21 through m24 in the group of strips of connection roads of the intersection "ZZ Bridge", which is the guide intersection, are evapourate stripes, the processing means to determine the direction of travel determines that the direction of travel on this guide intersection direction is left.

In addition, processing means for determining the display area defines the display area to accommodate the left-hand lane m21 of the number of bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on the m27 in the list Ls11 bands. As a result of the display area of the removed strip m8, m17 and m18.

In addition, as shown, for example, on Fig, when the strip with m24 on the m27 in the group of strips of connection roads of the intersection "ZZ Bridge", which is the guide intersection are right turn lanes, the processing means to determine the direction of travel determines that the direction of travel on this guide intersection is to the right.

In addition, processing means for determining the display area defines the display area so that it would fit the right lane m18 of the number of bands with m1 through m8, m11 on m18 and m21 on the m27 in the list Ls11 bands. As a result of the display area of the removed strip m1, m21 and m22.

In addition, as shown, for example, on Fig, when the band m1 in the group of strips of connection roads of the intersection "ZZ Bridge", which is the guide intersection, are evapourates strip, and the strip along the m4 to m2 are cross-cutting strips, the processing means to determine the direction of travel determines that the direction of travel on this guide intersection, the direction is forward.

In addition, processing means for determining the display area defines the display area so as to accommodate a Central part of the list Ls11 bands. As a result of the display area are excluded bands m1, m21 and m22.

In this way the display area of the list of bands is determined based on the direction of travel on guide intersection and strip, show that there is no special need, are removed from the display area. Thus, it is possible to reliably display the main part of the list of bands, taking into account the connection between the bars.

In addition, since there is no need to reduce the size of each of the visualized bands, it is possible to prevent the deterioration of the visibility of the lane.

Next is illustrated the block diagram in Fig.

Step S11: Determines whether the list of bands list, taking into account the connection. In the case when the list of bands takes into account the connection, the process proceeds to step S12, and when the lane is not a list of the bands, taking into account the connection, the process proceeds to stage a Return.

Step S12: Determines whether the size of the list of bands for maximum visualization. When the size of the list of bands exceeds the maximum area of visualization, the process goes to step S13, and when the size of the list of bands is less than the if is equal to the maximum field of visualization, the process proceeds to stage a Return.

Step S13: Read the direction of the exit of the guide intersection.

Step S14: based On direction of travel define the area to be displayed, and the process proceeds to stage a Return.

It should be noted that the present invention is not limited to these options implementation and allows various modifications based on the beings of the present invention, and these modifications are within the scope of the present invention.
