Abstract

In order to offer a vehicle driver and his passengers both the comfort of a guided tour and the maximum degree of individual design of the tour, programs are stored in the navigation device of a motor vehicle that guide the driver to places of interest (S1-S10). When a sight (S1-S10) is reached, acoustic and / or visual explanations are given for this sight (S1-S10). In this way, z. B. Perform city tours or trips along so-called tourist routes individually designed.

Description

  • The invention relates to a method for navigating a Vehicle using a navigation device with a memory for storing navigation data, with a unit for Determination of the location, using a navigation computer Calculation of routes, with an optical and / or acoustic data output unit and with an operating unit for Entry of a start and end point, navigation data and of orders.
  • The invention further relates to a navigation device for Navigation of a vehicle with a memory for storing Navigation data, with a unit for determining the Location, with a navigation computer to calculate Routes, with an optical and / or acoustic Data output unit and with an operating unit for entering a start and Target point, navigation data and commands.
  • A navigation device of a motor vehicle can with the help a built-in gyro compass and the global position System - abbreviated GPS - belonging to satellites at any time determine the current location of the motor vehicle. To Entry of a destination into the navigation device by the User calculates an on-board computer of the navigation device cheapest route from the current location to Destination. The user is informed by acoustic announcements from Navigated to the desired destination. Such acoustic Announcements are e.g. For example: "Follow the next street right, go straight, you have reached the destination, You have lost your way, return to the next one Possibility of "etc. These announcements exist similar to the telephone time announcements from standard voice segments, in one Language file are stored in the navigation device. To the on-board computer controls the calculation of the route Acoustic reproduction of the announcements by ensuring that the correct announcement, e.g. B. "Turn right now", exactly to is played at the correct time.
  • Although a navigation device the driver of a motor vehicle Orientation and driving considerably easier continued need, driving comfort for both the driver and to raise his passengers.
  • It is therefore an object of the invention, the scope of a Method for navigation and a navigation device expand that for both the driver and his Passenger comfort is increased considerably.
  • In procedural terms, this task is carried out with specified features solved in that in the navigation device Programs are saved that the vehicle driver too Sightseeing.
  • In terms of the device, this task is carried out with specified features solved in that in the navigation device Programs are stored that the vehicle driver too Sightseeing.
  • According to the invention it is provided that in the navigation device Programs are saved that the vehicle driver too Guiding sights. It can be a tour act that leads back to the starting point, or a trip from a starting point to a destination, between which several Sights lie.
  • When you reach a sight you will be automatically acoustic, possibly also optical, explanations for this Point of interest output by means of a data output unit. For example, in a short lecture, the story and the peculiarities of those just started Sight, z. B. a famous building, the driver and his Riders explained before the navigation device continues the driver to the next sight.
  • For example, there are guided tours for city tours or overland trips to special sights in the Navigation device saved.
  • In a further embodiment of the invention, the Operator the possibility to enter the duration of the tour. The duration and the times for breaks can also, for. B. in the navigation device can be entered.
  • Another embodiment of the invention says automatically parking. Alternatively, you can Parking but also only on request. B. before starting or be displayed while driving.
  • Another embodiment of the invention shows Automatically or on request refreshment stops for dining.
  • Another embodiment of the invention informs the Users on multi-day tours automatically or on Inquiry about accommodation options.
  • The invention will now be described in more detail with reference to the figures and explained.
  • Show in the drawing
  • Fig. 1 shows schematically an embodiment of a city tour and
  • Fig. 2 shows schematically an embodiment for an overland trip with an overnight stay on a tourist road.
  • In Fig. 1 an embodiment of the invention for a city tour is shown schematically.
  • The city tour starts at a starting point S and leads from this point to several sights S1 to S10. By acoustic announcements and possibly also visual displays the driver becomes from sight to sight piloted. When you reach a point of interest you will be in one Lecture facts worth knowing about this attraction explains and explains. When you reach sight S2 the driver will also move to a nearby one Parking P1 indicated. Upon reaching the S4 will be an indication of a refreshment stop R1, z. B. given a restaurant. Near or when reaching the S6 is a reference to a Parking P2. If the tour to S10 attraction The end goes, for example, to another Refreshment stop R2 pointed out.
  • The information about parking and refreshment stops can e.g. B. shortly before these possibilities or before starting the tour can be given on request.
  • It is also possible to choose a shorter round trip which, in the exemplary embodiment shown in FIG. 1, leads from the second sight S2 to the seventh sight S7 and from there via the sights S8, S9 and S10 back to the starting point S.
  • An embodiment of an overland trip is shown schematically in FIG. 2.
  • The tour starts at a starting point S and leads over several Sights S1 to S9 to a destination Z. As with previous embodiment are references to Parking P1 and P2, refreshments R1 and R2 as well given overnight accommodation. These clues can before the start of the trip, when the respective Target or just before.
  • For example, in the exemplary embodiment shown in FIG. 2, a shortened round trip is provided, which leads from the first sight S1 to the sight S6 and from there leads back to the starting point S via the sights S5, S4, S3, S2 and S1.
  • The driver has arrived at the S6 sight also the option to go back to starting point S instead drive, continue to the sights S7 and S9 and from there to the destination point Z.
  • As already mentioned, the management program contains references to parking P1 at the sight S4, the Parking P2 between the sights S7 and S8, the Refreshments R1 near the sight S3, the Refreshments R2 at destination Z and on the Accommodation between the sights S4 and S5 saved. The references to these possibilities can can be issued at any time on request. They can also Hin z. B. in good time before reaching the respective Possibility to be spent.
  • The programs for city tours can e.g. B. from the Traffic offices of attractive cities. The Overland journeys can e.g. B. Guides along so-called Tourist streets, such as B. the German Alpine Road, the Black Forest Hochstraße, Uhrenstraße, Burgenstraße and Schlösserstraße, the Baden Wine Route, etc.
  • A major advantage of the invention is that the user enjoys the same comfort as with a guided bus trip. Another advantage can be seen in the fact that the user can arrange the tour individually as he sees fit with breaks and side trips to sights that are particularly interesting for him. Finally, it should be noted as a third advantage that the user drives the vehicle in his own vehicle. Compared to a guided bus tour, the invention offers the user a high degree of individuality because the user is not bound to a fixed management program that applies to all participants.
