FIG.

  First, a first embodiment of the present invention will be described.

  FIG. 1 is a system configuration diagram illustrating an example of a configuration of a navigation system 10 according to the first embodiment. The navigation system 10 includes a display device 11, an input device 12, a sensor 13, and a navigation device 20. The navigation device 20 includes a route search unit 21, a route guidance unit 22, a display control unit 23, a current position calculation unit 24, and a database 25.

  In the database 25, a link table including map information indicating roads, map data, and the like are stored in advance. In the link table, for example, as shown in FIG. 2, data relating to the link is stored as mesh data 251 for each predetermined map area. Each mesh data 251 includes a mesh ID 252 for identifying each mesh, link data 253 that is data relating to a link in the mesh, and the like.

  Each link data 253 is connected to a link ID 254 for identifying each link, a link start node coordinate 255, a link end node coordinate 256, a link road type 257, a link length 258, and a link start node. The start connection link 259 that is identification information of other links, the end connection link 260 that is identification information of other links connected to the end node of the link, and the like are stored.

  The sensor 13 is, for example, a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver, an orientation sensor, a distance sensor, and the like. The GPS signal transmitted from the geodetic satellite, the traveling direction of the vehicle, the moving distance of the vehicle, the steering angle of the steering wheel, etc. Measure and supply the measurement information to the current position calculator 24.

  The current position calculation unit 24, for example, every time the vehicle on which the navigation device 20 is mounted moves, for example, a predetermined distance (for example, 10 m) based on the measurement information supplied from the sensor 13 and the link data stored in the database 25. The current position and traveling direction of the vehicle are calculated by map matching or the like, and information indicating the calculated current position and traveling direction of the vehicle is provided to the route searching unit 21, the route guiding unit 22, and the display control unit 23.

  The route search unit 21 receives link information from the user via the input device 12 such as a touch panel when the search information including the coordinates of the departure point, the destination point, and the waypoint, the search conditions, and the like is received from the user. , Based on the search information, the route from the departure point to the destination point through the waypoint is searched using an algorithm such as Dijkstra method, and the search result is displayed on the display device 11.

  When the route search unit 21 receives information specifying the searched route from the user via the input device 12, the route search unit 21 uses the route specified by the user as the guide route to the route guide unit 22 and the display control unit 23. send. Note that the route search unit 21 may perform route search using the current position of the vehicle as a departure point.

  When the route guidance unit 22 receives information indicating the guidance route from the route search unit 21, the route guidance unit 22 refers to the current vehicle position calculated by the current position calculation unit 24 and the link data stored in the database 25. It is determined whether or not there is a guide point that should guide the traveling direction within a predetermined distance ahead of the vehicle on the guidance route. When a guide point exists within a predetermined distance in front of the vehicle, the route guide unit 22 outputs a guide image for guiding the traveling direction of the vehicle at the guide point to the display control unit 23.

  The display control unit 23 acquires a map (for example, a front wide map, a north-up map, a heading-up map, etc.) in a mode instructed by the user via the input device 12 from the database 25 and is calculated by the current position calculation unit 24. It is displayed on the display device 11 together with a car mark indicating the current position of the vehicle that has been selected. Further, when receiving a guidance route from the route search unit 21, the display control unit 23 highlights a road corresponding to the guidance route on the map.

  In addition, when the display control unit 23 receives a guidance image from the route guidance unit 22, the display control unit 23 refers to the current display state of the display device 11 and determines whether or not the screen area is divided into two screen displays. judge. For example, as shown in FIG. 3A, when the display screen 30 of the display device 11 is not a two-screen display, the display control unit 23 currently displays the screen of the display device 11 on the display screen 30 of the display device 11. It is determined whether or not a north-up map that displays a car mark indicating the current position of the vehicle is displayed on a map with the upper part of the vehicle being in the north direction.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 3A, a car mark indicating the current position of the vehicle is displayed below the center of the screen together with a map in which the upper part of the screen of the display device 11 is in the traveling direction of the vehicle. When an image other than the north-up map such as the front wide map is displayed, the display control unit 23 divides the screen area of the display device 11 into two as shown in FIG. 3B, for example. The north-up map is displayed in the area 33, and the guide image output from the route guiding unit 22 is displayed in the other area 32.

  On the other hand, when the north-up map is currently displayed on the display device 11, the display control unit 23 divides the screen area of the display device 11 into two as shown in FIG. 3B, for example. The currently displayed north-up map is displayed on 33, and the guidance image output from the route guidance unit 22 is displayed on the other area 32.

  In addition, when the display device 11 performs a two-screen display when the guide image is received from the route guidance unit 22, the display control unit 23 determines whether or not the north-up map is displayed in one area. judge. For example, as shown in FIG. 4A, when a north-up map is displayed in one area 36 and an image other than the north-up map such as a front wide map is displayed in the other area 35, display control is performed. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 4B, the unit 23 displays the guide image output from the route guiding unit 22 in the other region 35.

  On the other hand, when the north-up map is not displayed in any area, the display control unit 23 displays one area 36 north-up map as shown in FIG. The guidance image output from the route guidance unit 22 is displayed.

  Thus, when the vehicle turns right or left, the navigation device 20 can display the north-up map so that the user can recognize the direction in which the vehicle will travel from north. Thereby, the user can maintain the recognition of the positional relationship between the current position and the target object without performing an operation such as displaying a map in order to confirm the positional relationship between the current position and the target object. .

  FIG. 5 is a flowchart illustrating an example of the operation of the navigation device 20 according to the first embodiment. For example, at a predetermined timing such as when the power is turned on, the navigation device 20 starts the operation shown in this flowchart.

  First, the route search unit 21 determines whether or not the search information including the coordinates of the departure point, the destination point, and the waypoint, the search condition, and the like has been received from the user via the input device 12. It is determined whether a search is instructed (S100). When a route search is instructed by the user (S100: Yes), the route search unit 21 refers to the link data in the database 25, and based on the search information, for example, using an algorithm such as the Dijkstra method, The route from the departure point to the destination point is searched (S101), and the search result is displayed on the display device 11.

  Next, the route search unit 21 determines whether or not the guidance route has been determined by determining whether or not information specifying the route searched for by the user is received via the input device 12 (S102). . When the route search is not instructed by the user (S100: No), or when the guidance route is not determined (S102: No), the route search unit 21 executes the process shown in step S100 again.

  When the guidance route is determined (S102: Yes), the route search unit 21 sends the determined guidance route to the route guidance unit 22 and the display control unit 23. The display control unit 23 acquires map data around the current position of the vehicle calculated by the current position calculation unit 24 from the database 25, and displays a car mark indicating the current position of the vehicle on the map in a predetermined map display mode. At the same time, the road corresponding to the guidance route is highlighted (S103).

  Next, the route guidance unit 22 refers to the current position of the vehicle calculated by the current position calculation unit 24 and the link data stored in the database 25, and guides within a predetermined distance ahead of the vehicle on the guidance route. It is determined whether or not a point exists (S104). When a guidance point exists within a predetermined distance ahead of the vehicle (S104: Yes), the route guidance unit 22 outputs a guidance image for guiding the traveling direction of the vehicle at the guidance point to the display control unit 23.

  Next, the display control unit 23 refers to the current display state of the display device 11 and determines whether or not the screen area is divided to display two screens (S105). For example, as shown in FIG. 4A, when the screen area is divided into two screen displays (S105: Yes), the display control unit 23 displays the north-up map in one screen area. It is determined whether or not (S106).

  When the north-up map is displayed in one screen area (S106: Yes), the display control unit 23 is output from the route guidance unit 22 to the other screen area, for example, as illustrated in FIG. 4B. The guide image is displayed (S107), and the display control unit 23 executes the process shown in step S103 again.

  When the north-up map is not displayed in any screen area (S106: No), the display control unit 23 displays the north-up map in one screen area and from the route guidance unit 22 in the other screen area. The output guide image is displayed (S108), and the display control unit 23 executes the process shown in step S103 again.

  In step S105, for example, as shown in FIG. 3A, if the screen area is not divided (S105: No), the display control unit 23 currently displays a north-up map on the screen of the display device 11. It is determined whether it is displayed (S109). When the north-up map is displayed (S109: Yes), the display control unit 23 divides the screen area of the display device 11 into two as shown in, for example, FIG. The north-up map being displayed is displayed, and the guidance image output from the route guidance unit 22 is displayed in the other screen area (S110), and the display control unit 23 executes the process shown in step S103 again. .

  When an image other than the north-up map is displayed on the screen of the display device 11 (S109: No), the display control unit 23 divides the screen area of the display device 11 into two, and the north-up map is displayed on one screen area. While displaying a map, the guide image output from the route guidance part 22 is displayed on the other screen area (S111), and the display control part 23 performs the process shown to step S103 again.

  In step S104, when there is no guidance point within a predetermined distance ahead of the vehicle (S104: No), the route guidance unit 22 is instructed by the user to end the route guidance, or the vehicle is near the destination. It is determined whether or not the route guidance is terminated due to reasons such as arrival (S112). When the route guidance is continued (S112: No), the route guidance unit 22 executes the process shown in step S104 again. When the route guidance is finished (S112: Yes), the route search unit 21 executes the process shown in step S100 again.

  The first embodiment of the present invention has been described above.

  As is clear from the above description, according to the navigation system 10 of the present embodiment, it is possible to reduce the user's operation for maintaining the recognition of the positional relationship between the current position and the target.

When the vehicle turns right or left at the intersection, the display control unit 23 is notified accordingly. For example, the right / left turn determination unit 26 travels a predetermined distance (for example, 10 m) or more in a state where the steering angle of the steering wheel is a predetermined angle (for example, 90 degrees) or more in an area within a predetermined distance (for example, 20 m) from the node indicating the intersection. In this case, it is determined that the vehicle has turned right or left.

  The display control unit 23 obtains a map of the mode instructed by the user via the input device 12 from the database 25, and displays it on the display device 11 together with a car mark indicating the current position of the vehicle calculated by the current position calculation unit 24. indicate. The display control unit 23 determines whether the north-up map is displayed on the display device 11 when the right / left turn determination unit 26 is notified that the vehicle has turned right or left at the intersection.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 7 (a), when the display device 11 displays an image other than the north-up map such as the front wide map, the right / left turn determination unit 26 indicates that the vehicle has turned right or left at the intersection. When notified, the display control unit 23 displays a north-up map on the display device 11, for example, as shown in FIG. The display control unit 23 restores the display of the display device 11 when a predetermined time (for example, 10 seconds) elapses after switching the display.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 8 (a), a right / left turn determination unit indicating that the vehicle has made a right or left turn at an intersection while an image other than a north-up map such as a front wide map is displayed on the display device 11. 26, the display control unit 23 divides the screen area of the display device 11 into two as shown in FIG. 8B, for example, and displays the north-up map in one area 45. You may make it display the image currently displayed on the other screen area | region.

  Further, if the display control unit 23 switches the display on the display device 11 after being notified from the right / left turn determination unit 26 that the vehicle has made a right or left turn at the intersection, the display control unit 23 switches the display on the display device 11 to a predetermined value. You may make it return the display of the display apparatus 11 after driving | running | working distance (for example, 100 m).

  FIG. 7A illustrates a front wide map before the left / right turn determination unit 26 determines that the vehicle has made a left turn, and FIG. A north-up map displayed after it is determined that has turned left is illustrated. Further, FIG. 8A illustrates a front wide map before the left / right turn determination unit 26 determines that the vehicle has made a left turn. FIG. A front wide map and a north up map displayed after it is determined that the vehicle has turned left are illustrated.

  FIG. 9 is a flowchart illustrating an example of the operation of the navigation device 20 according to the second embodiment. For example, at a predetermined timing such as when the power is turned on, the navigation device 20 starts the operation shown in this flowchart.

  First, the right / left turn determination unit 26 refers to the link data in the database 25 and the current position and traveling direction of the vehicle calculated by the current position calculation unit 24 to determine whether the vehicle has turned right or left at the intersection. Is determined (S200). When the vehicle does not turn right or left at the intersection (S200: No), the right / left turn determination unit 26 executes the process shown in step S200.

  When the vehicle turns right or left at the intersection (S200: Yes), the right / left turn determination unit 26 notifies the display control unit 23 to that effect. And the display control part 23 determines whether the north-up map is displayed on the display apparatus 11 (S201). When the north-up map is displayed on the display device 11 (S201: Yes), the right / left turn determination unit 26 executes the process shown in step S200 again.

  When the north-up map is not displayed on the display device 11 (S201: No), the display control unit 23 displays the north-up map on the display device 11 (S202), and displays a predetermined time after displaying the north-up map. It is determined whether or not it has passed (S203). When the predetermined time has elapsed (S203: Yes), the display control unit 23 restores the display of the display device 11 (S204), and the right / left turn determination unit 26 executes the process shown in step S200 again.

  The second embodiment of the present invention has been described above.
