  FIG. 1 is a schematic block diagram illustrating a functional configuration of the mobile terminal 10. The mobile terminal 10 includes a CPU (Central Processing Unit) connected via a bus, a memory, an auxiliary storage device, and the like, and by executing a program, the input unit 101, the display unit 102, the direction detection unit 103, and the wind speed detection unit 104. , Function as an apparatus including a position detection unit 105, a club characteristic storage unit 106, a golf course storage unit 107, and an information providing unit 108. The mobile terminal 10 is realized using, for example, a mobile phone, a wristwatch, or a mobile information processing terminal (smart phone, notebook computer, etc.). All or some of the functions of the mobile terminal 10 may be realized using hardware such as an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), a programmable logic device (PLD), or a field programmable gate array (FPGA).

  The input unit 101 is configured using an existing input device such as a keyboard, a pointing device (such as a mouse or a tablet), a button, or a touch panel. The input unit 101 is operated by an operator when inputting various instructions and data to the mobile terminal 10. The display unit 102 is configured using an image display device such as a liquid crystal display or an organic EL (Electro Luminescence) display, and displays images and characters provided by the information providing unit 108.

  The direction detection unit 103 is configured using a magnetic sensor, and detects the direction in which the mobile terminal 10 is facing as an electronic compass. The wind speed detection part 104 is comprised using a wind speed sensor, and detects a wind speed. The wind speed detection unit 104 is configured using, for example, an impeller that rotates in accordance with the flow of wind and a sensor that detects the rotational speed of the impeller. The position detection unit 105 is configured using a GPS (Global Positioning System) or the like, and acquires the coordinates of the current position of the mobile terminal 10.

  The club characteristic storage unit 106 is configured using a storage device such as a magnetic hard disk device or a semiconductor storage device. The club characteristic storage unit 106 stores club characteristic information regarding the operator of the mobile terminal 10. The golf course storage unit 107 is configured using a storage device such as a magnetic hard disk device or a semiconductor storage device. The golf course storage unit 107 stores a course data file representing course information on golf courses in various places and a course database.

  FIG. 2 is a diagram showing an outline of the club characteristic information stored in the club characteristic storage unit 106. The club characteristic information is information representing characteristics regarding the trajectory and the flight distance when the operator of the mobile terminal 10 hits a ball using each club. For example, as shown in FIG. 2, as the club characteristic information, the club number, the flight distance, the height index, and the left-right direction index are associated with each other. The flight distance represents an average flight distance of the operator when using the club with the corresponding count. The height index represents the height of the trajectory when the operator uses the club of the corresponding count. For example, the height index is expressed in 10 levels, and the higher the number, the higher the flight may be expressed. The left-right direction index represents the degree of bending in the left-right direction of the trajectory when the operator uses the club with the corresponding count. For example, the left / right direction index may be expressed in five stages on each of the left and right sides, and the larger the number, the greater the bending in that direction may be. Note that “R” in the left-right direction index indicates that the vehicle turns to the right, and “L” indicates that the vehicle turns in the left direction. Referring to the specific example of FIG. 2, the average flight distance when using a 1 W club is 340 yards, the height index is 4, and the horizontal index is 4 in the right direction.

  FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating an example of a course database stored in the golf course storage unit 107. The course database has a course ID, a hall number, and map information associated with each other. The course ID is identification information that uniquely represents each golf course. The hole NO represents a hole number in each golf course. The map information represents the file name of the course data file in which the map information of each course specified by the course ID and the hall number is recorded. The information providing unit 108 can search the file name of the course data file by using the course ID and the hall number as arguments in the course database.

  FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating the appearance of the mobile terminal 10. FIG. 4A shows the appearance of the mobile terminal 10 when the impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 is in a usable state. FIG. 4B shows the appearance of the mobile terminal 10 when the impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 is accommodated. FIG. 4C shows the external appearance of the side surface of the mobile terminal 10 when the impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 is accommodated. The impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 is held in a state where it is easy to receive the wind to be detected. For example, the impeller part is attached to the upper part of the display unit 102. In addition, the orientation detection unit 103 is attached inside the casing near the input unit 101 (button).

  When the wind speed is not detected (when not used), the impeller portion is folded and stored in the housing. At this time, the impeller portion is configured not to protrude from the housing. As is clear from FIG. 4C in particular, when the portable terminal 10 is placed with the portion in which the impeller portion is accommodated facing upward, the impeller portion does not protrude upward from the other portion of the housing. It is configured.

  5 and 6 are flowcharts showing the operation flow of the mobile terminal 10. When the operator operates a power switch (not shown) of the mobile terminal 10 to turn on the power, the information providing unit 108 displays a standby screen on the display unit 102 (step S101). In addition, the information providing unit 108 activates a function for measuring the wind speed and direction and an application for providing information (step S102).

  Next, the information providing unit 108 displays precautions on the display unit 102 so as to prompt the operator to set the impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 to a usable state (the state of FIG. 4A) ( Step S103). When the operator sets the impeller part of the wind speed detection unit 104 in a usable state, the information providing unit 108 detects this and prompts the operator to turn the front of the impeller part upwind. The instruction is displayed on the display unit 102 (step S104).

  Thereafter, when the operator presses a button indicating “measurement start” on the input unit 101 (step S105), the information providing unit 108 responds to the wind direction and the wind speed detecting unit 104 in cooperation with the direction detecting unit 103 and the wind speed detecting unit 104. The wind speed is measured (step S105). Specifically, the direction detection unit 103 detects the wind direction with the direction in which the front of the impeller portion of the wind speed detection unit 104 is facing as the windward direction. Moreover, the wind speed detection part 104 detects a wind speed based on the rotational speed of an impeller. The information providing unit 108 displays the detected wind direction and wind speed on the display unit 102, and updates the display content at a predetermined cycle (step S107). Further, the information providing unit 108 records the detected wind direction and wind speed in the RAM at a predetermined cycle (step S108). The information providing unit 108 repeatedly executes the processes of steps S106 to S108 until the button indicating “end of measurement” on the input unit 101 is pressed.

  When the button indicating “end measurement” is pressed (step S109—YES), the information providing unit 108 ends the measurement of the wind direction and the wind speed by the azimuth detecting unit 103 and the wind speed detecting unit 104. The information providing unit 108 displays the fastest wind speed and the wind direction at that time in the measurement data recorded in the RAM on the display unit 102 (step S110).

  Next, the information providing unit 108 acquires the current position measured by the position detection unit 105. Based on the current position, the information providing unit 108 identifies the hole of the course where the terminal device is located among the holes of each course stored in the golf course storage unit 106 (step S111). The information providing unit 108 reads the course data file of the identified hole, and identifies the current position, the distance to the pin, and the direction (step S112). Further, the information providing unit 108 reads the operator's club characteristic information from the club characteristic storage unit 106, and specifies the operator's characteristic (step S113). Then, the information providing unit 108 specifies the recommended club and how to hit based on the current wind direction and speed, the characteristics of the operator, and the distance and direction from the current position to the pin (step S114).

  For example, the information providing unit 108 assigns scores to each club for a plurality of items based on the current wind direction and speed, the characteristics of the operator, and the distance and direction from the current position to the pin. The total value is calculated every time. The club with the highest score may be specified as the recommended club. As a specific example of the item, there is a relationship between the wind speed and the height index. In this case, the information providing unit 108 gives a higher score to a club having a smaller height index as the wind speed is higher. As a specific example of the item, there is a relationship between the distance to the pin and the flight distance. In this case, the information providing unit 108 gives a high score to a club having a flight distance closer to the distance to the pin. Further, as a specific example of the item, there is a relationship between the wind direction and the left-right direction index. In this case, the information providing unit 108 determines whether the relative angle deviation between the direction from the current position to the pin and the wind direction is rightward or leftward, and when it is rightward, the left-right direction index is L. A high score is assigned to a club having a value, and a high score is assigned to a club having a left-right direction index of R when it is facing left. Further, the information providing unit 108 assigns a higher score to a club having a larger left / right index as the wind speed is higher and a larger value when the angle deviation is rightward, and the left / right index as the wind speed is slower. A score is assigned to a club having a value of L and a small value. Further, the information providing unit 108 assigns a high score to a club having a right and left direction index R and a larger value as the wind speed is higher when the angle deviation is leftward, and the left and right direction index as the wind speed is lower. A high score is assigned to a club having a value of R and a small value. The information providing unit 108 assigns a higher score to a club having a smaller left-right index value as the angle deviation is smaller.

  Then, the information providing unit 108 displays the specified recommended club on the display unit 102 (step S115). At this time, the information providing unit 108 displays the advice on how to hit the display unit 102 for items whose score is low among the scores of the respective items calculated when the recommended club is specified. The content of the advice is stored in an advice database (not shown). In the advice database, the content of advice and each item are associated. The information providing unit 108 reads the content of the advice corresponding to the item having a low score and displays it on the display unit 102. For example, when the score regarding the flight distance is low, the information providing unit 108 may display an advice “Please be careful because the flight distance does not match”. Further, the information providing unit 108 may be further configured to calculate a difference between the flight distance and the distance to the pin and display the difference. Further, the information providing unit 108 may be configured to determine a point to be aimed by the operator using the recommended club based on each of the above information, and to display the point on the display unit 102.

  The mobile terminal 10 configured as described above measures the wind speed and the wind direction on the spot, and recommends an optimal golf club to the operator according to the measurement result. At that time, advice according to the recommended club is also given. Therefore, the operator can easily know the optimum club corresponding to the wind speed and direction.

Instead of the processing in step S111, the information providing unit 108 does not specify the hole of the current course, but the hole of the current course may be specified by the operator and specified by the operation of the input unit 101. .
Further, instead of the display unit 102, an audio output unit that outputs audio may be provided. In this case, the information providing unit 108 outputs a recommended club and advice by voice.

  The embodiment of the present invention has been described in detail with reference to the drawings. However, the specific configuration is not limited to this embodiment, and includes designs and the like that do not depart from the gist of the present invention.
