Abstract

A number of different functions are available in a road vehicle system and are displayed as a menu on a screen. Selection of specific functions is made with the use of a push button input that causes a cursor to move down the menu. On activation of the push button, only the menus and/or functions displayed are selected which have an acoustic selection- or input mode.

Description

Die Erfindung bezieht sich auf eine Anzeige- und Bedienvorrichtung mit den Merk malen des Oberbegriffs von Patentanspruch 1. The invention relates to a display and operating device having the characteristics set of the preamble of claim. 1

Eine derartige Vorrichtung ist aus der DE 38 36 555 A bekannt. Such a device is known from DE 38 36 555 A. Daneben ist es bei Fahrzeugen auch bekannt, Eingaben akustisch vorzunehmen (vgl. US 5,410,739). Besides, it is in vehicles also known to provide input acoustic (see US Pat. 5,410,739). Insbesondere für den unkundigen Fahrzeugbenutzer ist es schwierig, die Menüs und/oder Funktionen eines Fahrzeugs auszuwählen, bei denen tatsächlich eine akustische Bedienmöglichkeit besteht. In particular, for the uninitiated user of the vehicle, it is difficult to select the menus and / or functions of a vehicle in which there is indeed a possibility acoustic control.

Der Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde, eine Vorrichtung der eingangs genann ten Art zu schaffen, bei der auch dem unkundigen Fahrzeugbenutzer auf signifi kante Weise das Menü bzw. die Funktion deutlich gemacht wird, bei dem eine akustische Bedienmöglichkeit besteht. The invention has for its object to provide a device of the genann th type in which even the uninitiated user of the vehicle is made to signifi edge, the menu or function significantly, in which there is an acoustic operating possibility.

Die Erfindung löst diese Aufgabe durch die Merkmale des Patentanspruchs 1. The invention achieves this object by the features of claim 1.

Durch die optische Hervorhebung der Menüs bzw. Funktionen in Verbindung mit der Betätigung des Druckschalters wird dem Fahrzeugbenutzer diese Möglichkeit besonders deutlich gemacht. Through the visual emphasis of the menus and functions in conjunction with the operation of the pressure switch the vehicle user is this possibility made particularly clear. Im Gegensatz beispielsweise zu einem selbsttätigen Hervorheben der Menüs bzw. Funktionen dann, wenn der Fahrzeugbenutzer einen entsprechenden Befehl ausspricht, bietet die Verwendung des Druckschalters ei nen Schutz vor einer unbeabsichtigten Auslösung dieser Hervorhebung. In contrast for example to an automatic highlighting of the menus and functions when the vehicle user pronounces a corresponding command, provides the use of the pressure switch ei reasonable protection against accidental activation of this emphasis. Dadurch wird eine Irritierung des Fahrzeugbenutzers, wie sie ansonsten möglich ist, sicher vermieden. This will certainly avoided an irritation of the vehicle user, as it is otherwise possible.

In den weiteren Patentansprüchen sind vorteilhafte Ausgestaltungen der Erfindung dargestellt. In the other patent claims, advantageous features of the invention are shown. Anhand der Zeichnung wird die Erfindung und die besonders vorteilhaf ten Ausgestaltungen weiter erläutert. Reference to the drawings, the invention and the particularly vorteilhaf th embodiments will be further explained.

In der Figur sind in zwei Diagrammen ( Fig. 1 und Fig. 2) Ausführungsformen der Erfindung gezeigt. In the figure, in two diagrams (Fig. 1 and Fig. 2) shown embodiments of the invention.

Bei der Ausführungsform von Fig. 1 sind auf einem Bildschirm 1 beispielhaft eine Reihe von Menüs dargestellt, die über eine manuelle, nicht dargestellte Bedienein richtung, wie beispielsweise eine Tastatur oder einen Druck-Dreh-Schalter (DE 38 36 555A) auswählbar sind. In the embodiment of FIG. 1, a series of menus are displayed on a screen 1 by way of example, via a manual, not shown Bedienein device such as a keyboard or a push-turn switch (DE 38 36 555A) are selectable. Ferner ist in Fig. 1 ein Druckschalter 2 gezeigt, bei dem es sich um einen sogenannten Push to Talk-Schalter handelt. Further, in Fig. 1, a pressure switch 2 is shown in which there is a so-called push to talk switch. Der Druckschalter 2 kann zu einem beliebigen Zeitpunkt durch den Fahrzeugbenutzer betätigt werden. The pressure switch 2 can be operated at any time by the vehicle user. Nach der Betätigung des Druckschalters 2 verändert sich der Inhalt des Bild schirms 1 in der Weise, wie sie anhand des dann geänderten Bildschirminhalts 1 ' dargestellt ist. After the actuation of the pressure switch 2, the contents of the image screen 1 changed in the manner illustrated with reference to the then changed screen content 1 '. Neben den bereits ursprünglich vorhandenen Menüpunkten wie Au dio, Klima, Navigation, Bordcomputer und Telefon ist nun neben den Menüs, für die eine optische Bedien- bzw. Auswahlmöglichkeit besteht, eine optische Hervor hebung dargestellt. In addition to the originally existing menu items such as Au dio, climate, navigation, trip computer and phone is now next to the menus for which there is an optical controls or choice, a visual interest shown annulment. Es kann sich dabei um einen Pfeil 3 oder aber auch, nicht dar gestellt, um ein anderes Symbol, einen Farbumschlag oder ein ähnliches Mittel handeln. It can involve an arrow 3 or even not is asked to act in a different symbol, a color change or similar means. Der Fahrzeugbenutzer erhält damit nach Betätigen des Druckschalters 2 die Information, daß sich das Menü Navigation und das Menü Telefon gegenüber den Menüs Audio, Klima und Bordcomputer durch eine akustische Eingabe- bzw. Auswahlmöglichkeit unterscheiden. The vehicle user is provided so that the information upon actuation of the pressure switch 2 that differ the navigation menu and the menu telephone over the menu audio, climate and on-board computer by an acoustic input or choice. Er kann nun über die Bedieneinrichtung bei spielsweise das Menü Navigation ansteuern und dort durch einen entsprechenden Sprachbefehl das Reiseziel eingeben. He can now control navigation via the operating device in play as the menu and enter there by a corresponding voice command destination. Die gesamte Steuerung des Eingabevor gangs kann dabei über eine entsprechende manuelle Bedienmöglichkeit oder aber auch auf akustischem Wege erfolgen. The entire control of the Eingabevor gangs can take place via a corresponding manual operating feature or even acoustically.

Zusätzlich ist in Fig. 2 eine weitere Ausführungsform der Erfindung gezeigt. In addition, in Fig. 2, a further embodiment of the invention is shown. Nach dem Betätigen des Druckschalters 2 erscheint auf dem Bildschirm, der nunmehr mit 1 '' bezeichnet ist, neben den Menüpunkten mit akustischer Bedien- und Einga bemöglichkeit (Navigation und Telefon) in einem eingeblendeten Fenster weitere Menüs bzw. Funktionen mit akustischer Eingabe- bzw. Bedienmöglichkeit. After the actuation of the pressure switch 2 appears on the screen, which is now designated 1 '', next to the menu items with acoustic control and entranc bemöglichkeit (navigation and telephone) in a pop-up window other menus or functions with acoustic input and operating option. In der dargestellten Ausführungsform handelt es sich dabei um einen CD-Player (CD), einen Kassettenrecorder (Tape) und ein Radiogerät (FM), sämtlich nicht darge stellt. In the illustrated embodiment, this is a CD player (CD), a tape recorder (tape) and a radio (FM), all does not Darge.

Die mit den Bildschirminhalt 1 ' und 1 '' versehene Information über akustische Ein gabe- und Bedienmöglichkeiten kann nach Betätigen der Push-to-Talk-Taste 2 ständig oder aber zeitlich begrenzt, beispielsweise für einen Zeitraum von 10 Se kunden wiedergegeben werden. The 'provided with the screen image 1' and 1 'information about acoustic An gabe- and adjustment options can continuously or time-limited after pressing the push-to-talk button 2, for example for a period of 10 Se is reproduced customer. In letzterem Fall wird nach Ablauf dieser Zeit, so fern keine Auswahl eines Menüs bzw. eine Funktion bis dahin erfolgt ist, der ur sprüngliche Bildschirminhalt 1 erneut wiedergegeben. In the latter case, no selection of a menu or a function of the content for nal screen 1 is after this time so far has been made until then reproduced again.

Auf diese Weise wird die Nutzung bzw. das Erlernen der Spracheingabe deutlich erleichtert. In this way, the use or learning the speech input is much easier.
