Subsequently become image data for the display of the information units in which information units of the first category are distinguishable represented by information units of the second category. The Image data is then output from a display device reproduced in the vehicle.
  • Of the Invention is based on the knowledge that the totality of all Facts displayed in the vehicle via a display in Form of system displays or system warnings content in statements in terms of the present and statements regarding the future are categorizable. Depending on the category of information this will visualized differently. That way the viewer can intuitively and quickly grasp whether those related to the present Information requires immediate response. equally the viewer can quickly recognize when there is information refers to the future and therefore may influence the has future driving style.
  • The Conditions of the vehicle equipment and / or the environmental information can be detected by vehicle sensors and / or by external Facilities are transferred. At the vehicle sensors may be level sensors for containers the vehicle, temperature sensors and / or tire pressure sensors act. Measured values of these sensors are assigned to the first category, if they exceed or fall below a threshold. falls For example, the tire pressure below a certain threshold an immediate reaction from the driver is required. Further The vehicle sensors can detect whether the vehicle equipment work properly or if they are broken are. If certain devices are defective, it is determined whether an immediate reaction of the driver is required, for example the safety of the vehicle is impaired. In this Case, the information is assigned to the first category. Is not immediate response may be required, the information of the second Category assigned to the driver z. B. to point out that the facility in question will be repaired in the near future should or should be a working fluid of the vehicle should be refilled.

First, depending on the type of information unit to be displayed, a three-dimensional one modeled environment, which is related to the information unit to be displayed generated. To generate this image data, the image generation unit uses 5 back to digital geographic data stored in memory 9 are stored. In 2 an example of a three-dimensional modeled environment is shown showing a particular road section and the surroundings of that road section.
  • The Type of graphic representation of the information unit to be displayed depends on the main category of the information unit. There are different graphical representations for the two main categories used, which allow the viewer, very quickly and intuitively recognize if the presented information unit concerns the present or the future. In this way, in particular the driver of the vehicle immediately recognize if an immediate reaction is required.
  • Related to the 3 to 6 First, visualizations of weather information of the future category are explained:
    The 3 shows an ice alert for the in 2 shown section of the route. The ice alert is called a semi-transparent overlay of the in 2 shown street section shown. It can be seen that the visual appearance of the ice warning overlay differs significantly from the rest of the environment in terms of texture, color, shading, and rendering.
  • In 4 is an example of the display of a snow warning shown in which the in 2 a semi-transparent two-dimensional representation for snow is superimposed.
  • In 5 Another possible display for a snow warning is shown. In this case, semi-transparent two-dimensional snowflakes are superimposed on the three-dimensional modeled environment.
  • A combination of the in the 3 and 5 shown overlays is in 6 which indicates both snowfall and ice slipperiness on the road surface.
  • In 7 the visualization of a unit of information of the present category is shown:
    The sensor for detecting the tire pressure has detected too low a tire pressure in the front right tire. The categorizer 4 has assigned the information category to the present category, since the safety of the vehicle is impaired by this state of the right front tire. In this case, the image data generation unit generates 5 a visualization of the information unit, which differs significantly in terms of the graphic representation of the visualizations described above for information units of the future category. A three-dimensional modeled environment of the vehicle is generated by accessing data stored in the memory 9 are stored. Further, a surface shell model is produced for the tire whose air pressure is critical. The tire shown in this way is additionally provided with a signal color, e.g. B. red, and shown in a black and white representation of the transparent vehicle, as shown in 7 is recognizable. At the in 7 As shown, the driver can immediately and intuitively recognize that there is a warning message of the present-day category, ie, that immediate action is required. Furthermore, he immediately recognizes which vehicle part concerns the warning message.
  • In 8th is shown another example of an information unit of the future category. In this case, the three-dimensional modeled environment is abstracted and shown schematically. Buildings and streets are not modeled in detail, but only by white bodies that correspond in shape and relation to the environment in approximately the real buildings represented. For better orientation, certain landmarks, such. B. the in 8th illustrated church, highlighted by the graphically modeled church is displayed in color or in hatching. The route information is superimposed on the three-dimensionally modeled environment and preferably in color. Furthermore, the front part of the own vehicle is graphically displayed for easy orientation. The front part of the vehicle can, for. B. also be reproduced as a three-dimensional surface shell model exactly the vehicle in which the information is displayed. As a result, the information visualization is adapted to human cognition.
  • Another example of information visualization is in 9 shown. In this case, during the route guidance, a traffic sign in the three-dimensionally modeled environment is displayed significantly larger than would normally be in relation to the surroundings. The position of the traffic sign can be detected either by means of a camera mounted on the vehicle or from the memory 9 stored digital road data are read out.
  • The of the image generation unit 5 generated image data are sent to one or more display devices 6 . 7 and 8th transmitted to one or more vehicle occupants.
