It can be configured to be distributed and integrated.

[Navigation system configuration]
First, an example of the configuration of the navigation system in the first embodiment will be described below with reference to FIG. Here, FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing an example of the configuration of the navigation system in the first embodiment, and conceptually shows only the portion related to the present invention in the configuration. In the first embodiment, a navigation system that provides communication-type navigation will be described as a specific example. However, the present invention is not limited to this and can be applied to a stand-alone navigation system.

  As shown in FIG. 1, the navigation system of this embodiment schematically includes a navigation server 200 including at least a control unit 202 and a storage unit 206, a position acquisition unit 112, a display unit 114, and a control unit 102. The navigation device 100 including at least the storage unit 106 is connected to be communicable. As an example, the communication includes remote communication such as wired / wireless communication via the network 300. Each part of these navigation systems is communicably connected via an arbitrary communication path.

[Configuration of Navigation Server 200]
Here, in FIG. 1, the navigation server 200 receives the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 transmitted from the navigation device 100, and the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data based on the received current position information. When a turn of the target vehicle is detected in the vicinity of the intersection, a trajectory curve corresponding to both the approach link to the intersection and the exit link of the turn direction of the target vehicle is generated, or the storage unit 106 And acquiring the acquired trajectory curve or the like to the navigation device 100. The navigation server 200 is connected to the navigation apparatus 100 through the communication control interface unit 204 via the network 300 so as to be communicable with each other, and includes a control unit 202 and a storage unit 206. The control unit 202 is a control unit that performs various processes, and performs a process for detecting turning of the target vehicle. The communication control interface unit 204 is an interface connected to a communication device (not shown) such as an antenna or a router connected to a communication line, a telephone line, etc., and performs communication control between the navigation server 200 and the network 300. Has the function to perform. That is, the communication control interface unit 204 has a function of communicating data with the navigation device 100 or the like via a communication line. The storage unit 206 is a storage unit such as a fixed disk device, and stores various databases and tables (a road network database 206a, a track curve file 206b, and the like).

  Of these components of the storage unit 206, the road network database 206a is road network data storage means for storing road network data. Here, the road network data stored in the road network database 206a is data that defines a road network. As an example, node data of nodes that are nodes on the road network expression such as intersections, and roads between nodes This is network data expressed by a combination with link data of a link that is a section. The node data may include a node number, position coordinates such as latitude and longitude, a node type, the number of links to be connected, a connection node number, an intersection name, and the like. The link data includes link number, type of road to be connected, route number of national road, prefectural road, city road, etc., important route information, attribute information of administrative area where link exists, link length, road service status, abnormal Traffic restrictions such as traffic restrictions, vehicle weight restrictions, vehicle height restrictions, width, road width classification, number of lanes, speed limit, in-link attributes such as overpasses, tunnels and bridges, and names etc. Good. These road network data are stored in advance in the road network database 206a, and the control unit 202 of the navigation server 200 periodically sends the latest data via an external device (for example, a map that provides road network data). The road network data downloaded from the providing server) and stored in the road network database 206a may be updated.

  In addition, the trajectory curve file 206b has an approximate relative inclination with respect to both an incoming link that is a link that represents a road that enters the intersection and an outgoing link that is a link that represents a road that exits the intersection. It is a track curve storage means for storing a track curve for displaying the vehicle position in contact with 0. The trajectory curve stored in the trajectory curve file 206b is a straight line along the center line of the road between the nodes at the intersection of the road network data links (entrance links, exit links, etc.) stored in the road network database 206a. In many cases, the correction curve is used to approximate the actual travel trajectory of the target vehicle at the time of a left turn or right turn at an intersection instead of these links. As an example, in the track curve file 206b, the track curve for the exit link turning right at the intersection is compared with the track curve for the exit link turning left at the intersection, and the distance from the intersection at the point in contact with the exit link is shown. It may be set small. For example, in the trajectory curve file 206b, for the exit link turning right at the intersection, the distance from the intersection of the trajectory curve that touches the exit link is set to be smaller than ½ of the width of the entrance link. On the other hand, for an exit link that turns left at the intersection, this distance may be set to be greater than ½ of the width of the entrance link. Further, in the trajectory curve file 206b, for the exit link that turns right at the intersection, the distance from the intersection of the trajectory curve that touches the exit link is set to be smaller than ½ of the width of the exit link. On the other hand, for an exit link that turns left at the intersection, this distance may be set to be greater than ½ of the width of the exit link. Contrary to the above, in the track curve file 206b, the track curve for the exit link turning right at the intersection is compared with the track curve for the exit link turning left at the intersection. The distance from may be set large. In the track curve file 206b, the track curve for the exit link turning right at the intersection may be a cubic curve, and the track curve for the exit link turning left at the intersection may be a quadratic curve or an arc. The trajectory curve may be set as a clothoid curve. These track curve data are stored in advance in the track curve file 206b, and the control unit 202 of the navigation server 200 periodically provides the latest data via an external device (for example, track curve data). The trajectory curve downloaded from the map providing server) and stored in the trajectory curve file 206b may be updated. The navigation server 200 may acquire the trajectory curve file 206b by generating the trajectory curve described above in the control unit 202 without providing the trajectory curve file 206b in the storage unit 206.

  The control unit 202 has an internal memory for storing a control program such as an OS (Operating System), a program that defines various processing procedures, and necessary data. And the control part 202 performs the information processing for performing various processes with these programs. The control unit 202 is functionally conceptually configured to include a current position information receiving unit 202a, a vehicle turning detection unit 202c, a track curve acquisition unit 202d, and a track curve transmission unit 202e.

  Among these, the current position information receiving unit 202a is current position information receiving means for receiving the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 transmitted from the navigation device 100.

  Further, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c detects turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data stored in the road network database 206a based on the current position information received by the current position information receiving unit 202a. Means. For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c detects whether or not the current position based on the current position information exists in the vicinity of an intersection on the road network data and there is a turn of the target vehicle. Here, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c may calculate the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the azimuth information included in the current position information, or may calculate from the update history (travel locus) of the current position information. Alternatively, it may be calculated from the link shape of the map matching target. For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c may correct the current position information by map matching for turning detection. Here, as an example, the map matching is performed by comparing the current position, travel distance, traveling direction, and the like based on the current position information of the target vehicle with the road network data near the current position of the target vehicle, and the optimum (the most reliable) This is a technique for detecting a point on a road link and correcting the detected point as the position of the target vehicle. As the map matching method, a projection method may be used in which the current position of the target vehicle is projected onto the nearest road link of the road network data, and the current position of the target vehicle is corrected on the correct road. A pattern matching method may be used in which a current road information update history (travel locus) and a road pattern in the road network data are compared to search for a correct road while traveling and to correct the road on the road. Then, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c corrects the current position information received by the current position information receiving unit 202a by map matching using road network data stored in the road network database 206a, and corrects the current position information. May be. Further, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c detects whether or not the position based on the corrected current position information exists in the vicinity of the intersection on the road network data as a result of the map matching and the target vehicle is turning. Also good.

  The track curve acquisition unit 202d corresponds to both the entry link to the intersection and the exit link in the turning direction of the target vehicle when the vehicle turn detection unit 202c detects the turn of the target vehicle near the intersection. It is a track curve acquisition means for acquiring a track curve. For example, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d may acquire the trajectory curve from the trajectory curve file 206b, and the trajectory curve corresponding to both the entry link and the exit link is not stored in the trajectory curve file 206b. Alternatively, it may be obtained by generating a trajectory curve having a relative inclination of approximately 0 with respect to both the approach link and the exit link. The trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d may set a newly generated trajectory curve in the trajectory curve file 206b. More specifically, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d compares the trajectory curve for the exit link turning right at the intersection from the intersection at the point in contact with the exit link compared to the trajectory curve for the exit link turning left at the intersection. The trajectory curve may be generated by setting the distance small. In addition, for the exit link that turns right at the intersection, the track curve acquisition unit 202d sets the distance from the intersection of the track curve that touches the exit link to be smaller than ½ of the width of the entrance link. On the other hand, for the exit link turning left at the intersection, the distance may be set to be larger than ½ of the width of the entrance link to generate the trajectory curve. Further, the track curve acquisition unit 202d sets the distance from the intersection of the point in contact with the exit link of the track curve to be less than 1/2 of the width of the exit link for the exit link turning right at the intersection. On the other hand, for the exit link turning left at the intersection, a trajectory curve may be generated by setting this distance to be larger than ½ of the width of the exit link. Contrary to the above, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d determines that the trajectory curve for the exit link that makes a right turn at the intersection is the intersection of the point that touches the exit link compared to the trajectory curve for the exit link that makes a left turn at the intersection. The trajectory curve may be generated so that the distance from is set large. The trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d may generate a trajectory curve for the exit link turning right at the intersection with a cubic curve and a trajectory curve for the exit link turning left at the intersection with a quadratic curve or arc. The trajectory curve may be generated as a clothoid curve.

Further, the position transmission device 500 may be a small transmission device that is arbitrarily installed on each floor of a building (for example, a multilevel parking lot) or an underground structure (for example, a tunnel, an underground parking lot). Good. In addition, self-position information (position ID etc.) according to an installation place is allocated to this small transmitter. When the navigation device 100 enters the communicable range, the navigation device 100 receives the self-position information transmitted from the small transmitter as a position information signal. The communication method at this time may be, for example, various short-range wireless methods such as an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tag system and Bluetooth (registered trademark), an infrared communication method, and the like.

Also good. Further, the map data may be map data such as road maps of the whole country and each region, and map data partitioned in units of longitude and latitude meshes (for example, JIS standard first to third region partition meshes). Data and 100 m mesh data). These map data are stored in advance in the map database 106a, and the control unit 102 of the navigation device 100 periodically sends the latest data to an external device (for example, a map providing server that provides map data) via the network 300. The map data downloaded from the above and stored in the map database 106a may be updated.

  The control unit 102 includes an internal memory for storing a control program such as an OS, a program defining various processing procedures, and necessary data.

  Above, description of an example of a structure of the navigation system in 1st Embodiment is finished.

[Navigation system processing]
Next, an example of processing of the navigation system according to the first embodiment configured as described above will be described in detail with reference to FIG. 2 and FIG. Here, FIG. 2 is a flowchart showing an example of processing of the navigation system in the first embodiment.

  As shown in FIG. 2, first, the current position information acquisition unit 102a of the navigation device 100 acquires current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 (step SA-1). For example, the current position information acquisition unit 102a proceeds with the position information based on the position information signal received from the position transmission device 500 by the position acquisition unit 112 or the progress of the target vehicle detected by the direction sensor or the distance sensor of the position acquisition unit 112 Current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 including direction information such as direction and distance information is acquired. Here, when the location information signal transmitted from the location transmission device 500 cannot be received, the current location information acquisition unit 102a receives the map data displayed on the display unit 114 via the input unit 116. The coordinates specified on the displayed display screen (for example, the specifying operation on the touch panel display unit 114) and the direction information may be acquired as the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100.

  Then, the current position information transmission unit 102b of the navigation device 100 transmits the current position information of the target vehicle acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a to the navigation server 200 (step SA-2).

  Then, the current position information receiving unit 202a of the navigation server 200 receives the current position information transmitted from the navigation device 100 (step SA-3).

  Then, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b of the navigation server 200 detects the turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data stored in the road network database 206a based on the current position information received by the current position information receiving unit 202a. (Step SA-4). For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b compares the current position, travel distance, traveling direction, and the like based on the current position information of the target vehicle with road network data in the vicinity of the current position of the target vehicle, and determines the optimum point on the road link. By detecting, turning of the target vehicle in the vicinity of the intersection is detected. Here, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b performs map matching using the road network data stored in the road network database 206a on the basis of the current position information received by the current position information receiving unit 202a. The turning of the target vehicle at may be detected. Further, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b may calculate the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the azimuth information of the target vehicle included in the current position information, or may be calculated from the update history (travel locus) of the current position information. Alternatively, it may be calculated from the link shape of the map matching target by map matching.

  Then, the vehicle turning detection unit 202c of the navigation server 200 determines whether or not there is a turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data (step SA-5). For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b determines that the target vehicle is turning near the intersection when the turn is near the intersection and the turning angle is equal to or greater than a predetermined value.

  When the vehicle turning detection unit 202b determines that there is a turning of the target vehicle near the intersection (step SA-5, Yes), the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d of the navigation server 200 determines the approach link to the intersection and the link Trajectory curves corresponding to both exit links in the turning direction of the target vehicle are acquired (step SA-6). For example, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d may acquire a corresponding trajectory curve from the trajectory curve file 206b, or may acquire it by generating a trajectory curve. For example, when the trajectory curve corresponding to both the approach link and the exit link is not stored in the trajectory curve file 206b, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d is relative to both the entrance link and the exit link. It may be obtained by generating a trajectory curve with a general inclination of approximately 0, or a newly generated trajectory curve may be set in the trajectory curve file 206b. Here, FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating an example of a trajectory curve acquired by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d. FIG. 3 schematically shows a crossroad including an intersection, and it is assumed that the target vehicle enters the intersection from the lower side of the figure on the vertical road. In FIG. 3, white circles indicate nodes at intersections to be turned by the target vehicle, black circles indicate four corners at the intersections, and gray circles indicate points where the track curve touches the link. Yes. In the case of this example, a link is set along the center line of the road, and the double arrows represent a distance that is 1/2 of the width of each road. In the example of FIG. 3, when the vehicle turning detection unit 202c detects a left turn of the target vehicle, the track curve acquisition unit 202d selects and acquires a left turn track curve in the drawing, and turns the vehicle. When the right turn of the target vehicle is detected by the detection unit 202c, the right turn trajectory curve in the figure is selected and acquired.

  As shown in FIG. 3, the road network data links (incoming links, outgoing links, etc.) stored in the road network database 206a are expressed as straight lines along the center line of the road between nodes at the intersection. On the other hand, the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 202d is a curve that is close to the actual travel locus of the target vehicle at the time of a left turn or a right turn at an intersection. More specifically, the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 202d is relatively inclined with respect to both the approach link to the intersection of the target vehicle and the exit link in the turning direction of the target vehicle. Are curves (quadratic curves, cubic curves, arcs, clothoid curves, etc.) that are approximately 0-tangent. More specifically, as shown in FIG. 3, the track curve at the time of the right turn is set to have a smaller distance from the intersection of the point in contact with the exit link than the track curve at the time of the left turn. In more detail, the point that touches the exit link of the trajectory curve when turning right is set so that the distance from the intersection is less than 1/2 of the width of the entrance link, while the exit link of the trajectory curve when turning left The contact point is set such that the distance from the intersection is larger than ½ of the width of the approach link (see the arrow from the dotted line in the figure). In addition, the point that contacts the exit link of the track curve at the time of a right turn is not limited to this, and the distance from the intersection is set to be smaller than ½ of the width of the exit link. The contact point may be set such that the distance from the intersection is greater than ½ of the width of the exit link.

  Returning to FIG. 2 again, the trajectory curve transmission unit 202e of the navigation server 200 uses the trajectory curve acquired by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d or the road network data such as links and nodes subjected to map matching as a navigation device. 100 (step SA-7). That is, the track curve transmission unit 202e acquires the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 202d when the vehicle turn detection unit 202c determines that there is a turn of the target vehicle near the intersection (step SA-5, Yes). Is transmitted to the navigation device 100, and the vehicle turning detection unit 202c determines that there is a turning of the target vehicle near the intersection (step SA-5, No), the link or node that is the target of the map matching, etc. The road network data is transmitted to the navigation device 100.

  Then, the track curve receiving unit 102c of the navigation device 100 receives the track curve and road network data transmitted from the navigation server 200 (step SA-8).

  Then, the vehicle position display unit 102d of the navigation device 100 corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a on the track curve received by the track curve reception unit 102c, and the corrected vehicle of the target vehicle. The position is displayed on the display unit 114 with the vehicle mark or the like (step SA-9). Here, when the road network data is received by the trajectory curve receiving unit 102c, the vehicle position display unit 102d corrects the current position information on the link or node based on the road network data and the vehicle of the target vehicle. The position may be displayed. In addition, the vehicle position display unit 102d corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a by map matching using the track curve and road network data received by the track curve reception unit 102c. You may display the vehicle position of a target vehicle on a track curve, a link, or a node. In addition, the vehicle position display unit 102d displays the vehicle position of the target vehicle on the track curve corresponding to the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the current position information, using the track curve received by the track curve receiving unit 102c. May be. Further, the vehicle position display unit 102d may display the above-described vehicle position of the target vehicle superimposed on the map data display screen stored in the map database 106a.

  Above, description of an example of the process of the navigation system in 1st Embodiment is finished.

[Example of trajectory curve setting]
Here, an example of the setting process of the trajectory curve generated by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating an example of setting a trajectory curve. Similar to FIG. 3 described above, FIG. 4 schematically shows a crossroad including an intersection, and it is assumed that the target vehicle enters the intersection from the lower side of the figure in the vertical direction. In FIG. 4, as in FIG. 3, white circles indicate intersection nodes to be turned by the target vehicle, black circles indicate four corners at the intersections, and gray circles indicate track curves linked. It represents the point that touches. In this case, a link is set in the road network database 206a along the center line of the road, and the double arrows indicate a distance that is ½ of the width of each road link.

  As an example, as shown in FIG. 4, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d is inscribed in the corners of four intersections from the width data of the entrance link and the exit link based on the road network data stored in the road network database 206a. In addition, a square having a corner on the link (a broken line portion in the figure) is created.

  Then, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d generates a trajectory curve at the time of left turn by an arc connecting the square corner on the approach link and the square corner on the exit link at the left turn, and sets the trajectory curve file 206b. On the other hand, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d generates a trajectory curve at the time of a right turn by using a part of a cubic curve (excluding an alternate long and short dash line portion) connecting a square corner on the approach link and an intersection corner in the right turn direction. Are set in the trajectory curve file 206b.

  This makes it possible to set the point that touches the exit link of the track curve at the time of a right turn so that the distance from the intersection is smaller than 1/2 of the width of the approach link, while touching the exit link of the track curve at the time of a left turn. The point can be set such that the distance from the intersection is greater than 1/2 of the width of the incoming link. The above is an example of the setting example of the trajectory curve generated by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d. In addition to this, the track curve acquisition unit 202d generates various different track curves described in the description of the configuration of the track curve file 206b and sets the track curve file 206b in addition to the setting examples described above. Also good.

  As shown in FIG. 6, first, when the position information signal acquired by the position acquisition unit 112 is transmitted from the navigation device 100 (step SB-1), the position information signal reception unit 202f of the navigation server 200 displays the position information. A signal is received (step SB-2).

  Then, the current position information acquisition unit 202g of the navigation server 200 acquires the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 based on the position information signal received by the position information signal reception unit 202f (step SB-3). . For example, the current position information acquisition unit 202g receives the position information calculated from the position information signal received from the position transmission device 500 by the position acquisition unit 112 and the direction of the position acquisition unit 112 received by the position information signal reception unit 202f. The direction information such as the traveling direction of the navigation device 100 detected by the sensor may be acquired as the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100.

  The vehicle turning detection unit 202b of the navigation server 200 detects the turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data stored in the road network database 206a based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 202g. (Step SB-4). For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b compares the current position, travel distance, traveling direction, and the like based on the current position information of the target vehicle with road network data in the vicinity of the current position of the target vehicle, and determines the optimum point on the road link. By detecting, turning of the target vehicle in the vicinity of the intersection is detected. Here, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b performs map matching using the road network data stored in the road network database 206a based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 202g, so that the vicinity of the intersection The turning of the target vehicle at may be detected. Further, the vehicle turning detection unit 202b may calculate the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the azimuth information of the target vehicle included in the current position information, or may be calculated from the update history (travel locus) of the current position information. Alternatively, it may be calculated from the link shape of the map matching target.

  And the navigation server 200 is the object vehicle in the vicinity of the intersection on road network data by the process of the vehicle turning detection part 202c similarly to the process of step SA-5 and SA-6 mentioned above in 1st Embodiment. Is determined (step SB-5), and it is determined that there is a turn of the target vehicle in the vicinity of the intersection (step SB-5, Yes), the track curve acquisition unit 202d processes to enter the intersection. A track curve corresponding to both the link and the exit link in the turning direction of the target vehicle is generated or acquired from the track curve file 206b (step SB-6).

  And the vehicle position display control part 202h of the navigation server 200 produces | generates the display screen data which displayed the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition part 202g on the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition part 202d. (Step SB-7). That is, the vehicle position display control unit 202h corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 202g on the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 202d, and automatically determines the corrected vehicle position of the target vehicle. Display screen data represented by a car mark or the like is generated. At that time, the vehicle position display control unit 202h corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 202g by map matching using the trajectory curve acquired by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 202d. Display screen data displayed above may be generated. In addition, the vehicle position display control unit 202h uses the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 202d to track the curve corresponding to the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 202g. Display screen data in which the vehicle position of the target vehicle is displayed with correction may be generated. If the vehicle turning detection unit 202c does not determine that the target vehicle is turning near the intersection (step SB-5, No), the vehicle position display control unit 202h includes display screen data including current position information. Is generated. Further, the vehicle position display control unit 202h may further generate display screen data in which a display screen of map data stored in the map database 206c is superimposed.

  Then, the vehicle position display control unit 202h of the navigation server 200 transmits the generated display screen data to the navigation device 100 (step SB-8), thereby causing the display unit 114 of the navigation device 100 to display the display screen based on the display screen data. Is controlled to be displayed (step SB-9).

  Above, description of an example of the process of the navigation server 200 in 2nd Embodiment is finished.

[Third Embodiment]
Next, a third embodiment (navigation device 100 (stand-alone type)) of the present invention will be described below with reference to FIGS. Here, FIG. 7 is a block diagram showing an example of the configuration of the navigation device 100 according to the third embodiment, and conceptually shows only the portion related to the present invention in the configuration.

  In the third embodiment, all the functions are integrated into the navigation device 100, and the road stored in the storage unit 106 based on the current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 without being connected to the navigation server 200. Tracks corresponding to both the entry link to the intersection and the exit link in the turning direction of the target vehicle when the turn of the target vehicle is detected near the intersection on the network data and the turn of the target vehicle is detected near the intersection A curve is generated or acquired from the storage unit 106, and the current position information is displayed on the acquired trajectory curve via the display unit 114. Thus, the third embodiment differs from the other embodiments in that the navigation device 100 is configured as a stand-alone type and performs processing alone.

[Configuration of navigation device 100 (stand-alone type)]
First, an example of the configuration of the navigation device 100 (stand-alone type) in the third embodiment will be described below with reference to FIG.

  As illustrated in FIG. 7, the navigation device 100 according to the third embodiment of the present invention includes at least a position acquisition unit 112, a display unit 114, an input unit 116, a control unit 102, and a storage unit 106. Each unit of the navigation device 100 is connected to be communicable via an arbitrary communication path.

  In FIG. 7, the functions of the map database 106 a, the input / output control interface unit 108, the position acquisition unit 112, the display unit 114, and the input unit 116 are the same as those in the first embodiment, and thus description thereof is omitted. Also, the track curve file 106b and the road network database 106c in the storage unit 106 are the same as those in the first embodiment except that they are provided in the navigation device 100 instead of the navigation server 200. Omitted. Further, the navigation device 100 may acquire the trajectory curve file 106b by generating a trajectory curve in the control unit 102 without providing the trajectory curve file 106b in the storage unit 106.

  As for each part of the control unit 102, the navigation device 100 of the present embodiment is a stand-alone type that integrates the functions of the control unit 202 in the first embodiment, and the control unit 102 includes each transmission / reception unit. Except for this point, each function is basically the same as that of the first embodiment. That is, in FIG. 7, the control unit 102 has an internal memory for storing a control program such as an OS, a program that defines various processing procedures, and required data. And the control part 102 performs the information processing for performing various processes by these programs. The control unit 102 is functionally conceptually configured to include a current position information acquisition unit 102a, a vehicle position display unit 102d, a vehicle turning detection unit 102f, and a track curve acquisition unit 102g. Note that the functions of the current position information acquisition unit 102a and the vehicle position display unit 102d are the same as those in the first embodiment, and a description thereof will be omitted.

  Among these, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f is vehicle turning detection means for detecting turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a. For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f performs map matching using the road network data stored in the road network database 106b based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a, so that the vehicle turn detection unit 102f The turning of the target vehicle may be detected. As an example, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f detects whether or not the corrected current position exists in the vicinity of the intersection on the road network data as a result of the map matching by the map matching and the target vehicle is turning. . Here, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f may calculate the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the azimuth information included in the current position information, or may calculate from the update history (running locus) of the current position information. Alternatively, it may be calculated from the link shape of the map matching target by map matching. Further, as an example, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f uses the road network data stored in the road network database 106b to map the position (current position) corresponding to the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a. By correcting by matching, it is detected whether or not the vehicle is near an intersection. Here, as an example, the map matching is performed by comparing the current position, travel distance, traveling direction, and the like based on the current position information of the target vehicle with the road network data near the current position of the target vehicle, and the optimum (the most reliable) This is a technique for detecting a point on a road link and correcting the detected point as the position of the target vehicle. As the map matching method, a projection method may be used in which the current position of the target vehicle is projected onto the nearest road link of the road network data, and the current position of the target vehicle is corrected on the correct road. A pattern matching method may be used in which a current road information update history (travel locus) and a road pattern in the road network data are compared to search for a correct road while traveling and to correct the road on the road.

  The track curve acquisition unit 102g corresponds to both the approach link to the intersection and the exit link in the turn direction of the target vehicle when the vehicle turn detection unit 102f detects the turn of the target vehicle near the intersection. It is a track curve acquisition means for acquiring a track curve. For example, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 102f may acquire the trajectory curve from the trajectory curve file 106b, and when the trajectory curves corresponding to both the entry link and the exit link are not stored in the trajectory curve file 106b. Alternatively, it may be obtained by generating a trajectory curve having a relative inclination of approximately 0 with respect to both the approach link and the exit link. The trajectory curve acquisition unit 102g may set a newly generated trajectory curve in the trajectory curve file 106b.

  Above, description of an example of a structure of the navigation apparatus 100 in 3rd Embodiment is finished.

[Processing of navigation device 100 (stand-alone type)]
Next, an example of processing of the navigation device 100 according to the third embodiment configured as described above will be described in detail with reference to FIG. Here, FIG. 8 is a flowchart illustrating an example of processing of the navigation device 100 according to the third embodiment.

  As shown in FIG. 8, first, the current position information acquisition unit 102a acquires current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 (step SC-1). For example, the current position information acquisition unit 102a proceeds with the position information based on the position information signal received from the position transmission device 500 by the position acquisition unit 112 or the progress of the target vehicle detected by the direction sensor or the distance sensor of the position acquisition unit 112 Current position information of the target vehicle of the navigation device 100 including direction information such as direction and distance information is acquired. Here, when the position information signal transmitted from the position transmitter 500 cannot be received, the current position information acquisition unit 102a navigates the coordinates, direction information, and the like input by the user via the input unit 116. The current position information of the target vehicle of the device 100 may be acquired.

  Then, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f detects the turning of the target vehicle near the intersection on the road network data stored in the road network database 106c based on the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a (step SC). -2). For example, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f compares the current position, travel distance, traveling direction, and the like based on the current position information of the target vehicle with road network data in the vicinity of the current position of the target vehicle, and determines the optimum point on the road link. By detecting, turning of the target vehicle in the vicinity of the intersection is detected. Here, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f performs map matching using the road network data stored in the road network database 106b based on the current position information acquired by the current position information receiving unit 102a, so that the vicinity of the intersection The turning of the target vehicle at may be detected. Further, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f may calculate the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the azimuth information of the target vehicle included in the current position information, or may be calculated from the update history (travel locus) of the current position information. Alternatively, it may be calculated from the link shape of the map matching target by map matching.

  Then, the vehicle turning detection unit 102f determines whether or not there is a turning of the target vehicle near the intersection (step SC-3). For example, the vehicle turn detection unit 102f determines that the target vehicle is turning near the intersection when the turn is near the intersection and the turning angle is equal to or greater than a predetermined value.

  When the vehicle turning detection unit 102f determines that there is a turning of the target vehicle near the intersection (step SC-3, Yes), the track curve acquisition unit 102g turns the approach link to the intersection and the turning of the target vehicle. A trajectory curve corresponding to both the exit links in the direction is generated or acquired from the trajectory curve file 106b (step SC-4). For example, when the trajectory curve corresponding to both the entry link and the exit link is not stored in the trajectory curve file 106b, the trajectory curve acquisition unit 102g is relative to both the entrance link and the exit link. Alternatively, it may be obtained by generating a trajectory curve in which the general inclination is approximately zero. The trajectory curve acquisition unit 102g may set a newly generated trajectory curve in the trajectory curve file 106b.

  The vehicle position display unit 102d corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a on the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 102g, and the corrected vehicle position of the target vehicle is corrected. A mark or the like is displayed on the display unit 114 (step SC-5). Here, the vehicle position display unit 102d corrects the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a by map matching using the trajectory curve acquired by the trajectory curve acquisition unit 102g. The vehicle position of the target vehicle may be displayed. Further, the vehicle position display unit 102d displays the vehicle position of the target vehicle on the track curve corresponding to the turning angle of the target vehicle based on the current position information, using the track curve acquired by the track curve acquisition unit 102g. May be. The vehicle position display unit 102d may display the above-described vehicle position of the target vehicle superimposed on the map data display screen stored in the map database 106a. If the vehicle turning detection unit 102f does not determine that the target vehicle is turning near the intersection (step SC-3, No), the vehicle position display unit 102d determines the vehicle position of the target vehicle based on the current position information. Is displayed.

  Then, when the current position information acquired by the current position information acquisition unit 102a is updated (step SC-6, Yes), the navigation device 100 repeats the processing of steps SC-2 to SC-5 described above, If the position information is not updated (step SC-6, No), the process ends. Above, description of an example of the process of the navigation apparatus 100 in 3rd Embodiment is finished.
