BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a driving support system including a center side terminal installed in a center and a vehicle side terminal mounted on a vehicle.
[0002]
[Prior art]
Conventionally, an FM multiplex service that supports driving is provided by transmitting road traffic information (congestion information, traffic regulation information, accident information, etc.) from an FM broadcast station to a vehicle-side terminal to inform the driver ( For example, see Patent Document 1).
[0003]
[Patent Document 1]
Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication No. 7-55484
[0004]
[Problems to be solved by the invention]
However, what is described in the above-mentioned Patent Document 1 merely informs the driver of a traffic jam situation, traffic regulation situation, accident situation, and the like, and informs the driver of information that also includes the movement of people. Since it is not a thing, it is hard to say that it fully supports driving.
[0005]
That is, for the driver, for example, when driving around the school, not only the traffic jam situation is informed, but also the pedestrian (children) is warned if the child's going to and from school situation is informed. However, there is no means to inform the driver of the situation of pedestrians. In addition, if the driver tries to drive safely in this way, it is considered that the safety of the pedestrian is appropriately secured accordingly, and a synergistic effect beneficial to both the driver and the pedestrian can be brought about. It is considered possible.
[0006]
The present invention has been made in view of the above circumstances, and its purpose is to inform the driver of the situation of the pedestrian so that the driving can be sufficiently supported, both for the driver and the pedestrian. An object of the present invention is to provide a driving support system capable of producing a beneficial synergistic effect.
[0007]
[Means for Solving the Problems]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 1, the center-side terminal installed in the center holds schedule information indicating a time zone in which the facility user is expected to move around the facility, and the vehicle When traveling in a warning output target area centered on the facility, the schedule information is referred to determine whether or not the facility user may move around the facility at that time. When the center side terminal detects that the facility user may move around the facility at that time, the vehicle side terminal mounted on the vehicle outputs a warning warning, When the vehicle is traveling in a restricted area that is narrower than the warning output area around the facility,A notification output different from the warning is performed..
[0008]
For example, if the target facility is a school, for example, if the vehicle approaches the school during the time when the child goes to school, “The child is going to school at this time. Warning messages such as “Please be careful” will be displayed and output so that the driver can be informed that the child is attending school and the driver will be more aware of pedestrians (children). It is possible to encourage the driver to drive safely. In addition, if the driver tries to drive safely in this way, the safety of the pedestrian can be ensured accordingly, and thus a synergistic effect beneficial to both the driver and the pedestrian can be achieved. Can bring.
[0009]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 2,The center-side terminal installed in the center holds schedule information indicating the time zone in which facility users are expected to move around the facility, and the vehicle travels within the warning output target area centering on the facility If so, it is determined whether or not the facility user may move around the facility at that time by referring to the schedule information. When the center side terminal detects that the facility user may move around the facility at that time, the vehicle side terminal mounted on the vehicle outputs a warning warning, When the vehicle is traveling in the maximum speed regulation target area narrower than the warning output target area centering on the facility, the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel is regulated.
  For example, if the target facility is a school, for example, if the vehicle approaches the school during the time when the child goes to school, “The child is going to school at this time. Warning messages such as “Please be careful” will be displayed and output so that the driver can be informed that the child is attending school and the driver will be more aware of pedestrians (children). It is possible to encourage the driver to drive safely. In addition, if the driver tries to drive safely in this way, the safety of the pedestrian can be ensured accordingly, and thus a synergistic effect beneficial to both the driver and the pedestrian can be achieved. Can bring. Even if the driver steps on the accelerator to increase the speed, the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel is regulated to keep the vehicle speed constant against the intention of increasing the driver's speed. It can hold | maintain and can ensure the safety of a pedestrian more appropriately. Even if an accident occurs, damage can be suppressed by regulating the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel.
[0010]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 3, the vehicle-side terminal specifies the current position of the vehicle.TheSend to the center terminal. And the center side terminal from the vehicle side terminalWhen the current position of the vehicle is received, it is determined whether the vehicle has approached the facility based on the positional relationship between the received current position of the vehicle and the position of the facility,At that time, it is determined whether there is a possibility that the facility user moves around the facility. This will determine whether the vehicle has approached the facility.Vehicle side terminalRather than judging byCenter side terminalAs a system,Vehicle side terminalCan reduce the load.
[0011]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 4,The vehicle-side terminal identifies the current position of the vehicle, determines whether the vehicle has approached the facility based on the positional relationship between the identified current position of the vehicle and the facility position, and the vehicle has approached the facility When detecting that, the request is transmitted to the center side terminal. Then, when a request is received from the vehicle-side terminal, the center-side terminal determines whether or not the facility user may move around the facility at that time. As a result, the center side terminal does not determine whether the vehicle has approached the facility, but the vehicle side terminal determines whether the vehicle has approached the facility. Can be reduced.
[0013]
  According to the driving support system of the fifth aspect, the center side terminal installed in the center transmits schedule information indicating the time zone in which the facility user is expected to move around the facility to the vehicle side terminal. When the vehicle-side terminal mounted on the vehicle receives the schedule information from the center-side terminal when the vehicle approaches the facility and refers to the received schedule information, the facility user at that time If it is detected that there is a possibility that the facility user may move around the facility at that time, a warning warning is output, and then the vehicle is centered on the facility. When traveling in a restricted area that is narrower than the warning output area,A notification output different from the warning is performed..
  Thus, in the same manner as described in claim 1 above, for example, the case where the target facility is a school will be described as an example. A warning message such as `` Please pay attention to the child's jumping out '' is displayed and output, so the driver can be informed that the child is going to school. It is possible to raise awareness of attention to pedestrians (children) in the hand, and to encourage the driver to drive safely. In addition, if the driver tries to drive safely in this way, the safety of the pedestrian can be ensured accordingly, and thus a synergistic effect beneficial to both the driver and the pedestrian can be achieved. Can bring.
[0014]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 6,The center side terminal installed in the center transmits schedule information indicating the time zone in which the facility user is expected to move around the facility to the vehicle side terminal. When the vehicle-side terminal mounted on the vehicle receives the schedule information from the center-side terminal when the vehicle approaches the facility and refers to the received schedule information, the facility user at that time If it is detected that there is a possibility that the facility user may move around the facility at that time, a warning warning is output, and then the vehicle is centered on the facility. The maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel is regulated when traveling within the maximum speed regulation restriction area narrower than the warning output area.
[0015]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 7, the vehicle-side terminal isWhen a route to the destination is set, schedule information regarding facilities around the route is received from the center side terminal. As a result, a warning message is displayed and output even when the route to the destination is set, so the driver can be informed that the child is attending school, and the driver can be notified. Awareness of attention to pedestrians (children) can be raised, and the driver can be encouraged to drive safely.
[0016]
  According to the driving support system described in claim 8, the vehicle-side terminal isThe maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel is restricted on the condition that permission from a specific organization has been obtained. Accordingly, the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel can be regulated under the control of a specific organization such as a government office.
[0017]
According to the driving support system described in claim 9, when the vehicle-side terminal regulates the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel and when the vehicle leaves the facility, the vehicle-side terminal regulates the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel. Is released. Thereby, the restriction on the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel can be appropriately released without continuing the restriction on the maximum speed at which the vehicle can travel.
[0018]
According to the driving support system described in claim 10, the center side terminal is configured to be able to register the schedule information by a specific person such as a person who manages the facility. As a result, it is possible to prevent unauthorized schedule information from being registered by a third party, and to improve the reliability of the entire system.
[0020]
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
An embodiment of the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings. First, FIG. 1 schematically shows the overall configuration of the system. A vehicle-side terminal 2 mounted on the vehicle 1 includes a control terminal 3, a GPS receiver 4, a wide area radio 5, a narrow area radio 6, a display device 7, an audio output device 8, and an external interface device 9. Has been. The control terminal 3 controls the overall operation of the vehicle side terminal 2. The GPS receiver 4 captures a GPS radio wave radiated from a GPS satellite, and extracts (calculates) various parameters from the captured GPS radio wave, thereby specifying (detecting) the current position of the vehicle 1.
[0021]
The wide area wireless device 5 performs data communication with the Internet 11 by accessing the Internet service provider (ISP) 10 through a mobile communication network provided by a mobile communication service provider, for example. The narrow area radio 6 performs narrow area radio communication based on DSRC with a roadside radio apparatus installed on the roadside, for example, and accesses the Internet service provider (ISP) 10 through the roadside radio apparatus. Data communication is performed with the Internet 11.
[0022]
The display device 9 includes a current position mark indicating the current position of the vehicle 1 detected by the GPS receiver 4, a destination mark indicating the destination set by the driver, and a route from the current position to the destination. Etc. are displayed on a map, or a warning message for visually informing the driver of the warning is displayed. The audio output device 8 outputs a warning message for audibly informing the driver of the warning.
[0023]
The engine ECU 12 has a function of controlling the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel, and is connected to the external interface device 9 of the vehicle-side terminal 2. In this case, when the maximum speed restriction signal is input from the control terminal 3 through the external interface device 9, the engine ECU 12 restricts the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel, and from the control terminal 3 through the external interface device 9 When the speed restriction release signal is input, the restriction on the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel is released. Note that the processing in which the vehicle-side terminal 2 regulates the maximum speed is premised on obtaining permission from a specific organization (for example, a government office).
[0024]
Center-side terminals 14 installed in the center 13 are terminals (for example, schools 15, concert venues 16, racetracks 17, department stores 18, companies / factories 19, etc.) that are installed in facilities where people can move. (Not shown) can be connected through the Internet 11. In this case, the person concerned in each facility (for example, if the target facility is a school 15, it is a teacher, a janitor, a guardian of a child, etc., and if the target facility is a concert venue 16, the event manager, the venue Administrators and venue security guards, etc.) can enter facility schedule information and controlled areas into each terminal, and each terminal can enter facility schedule information and controlled areas entered by the parties involved in each facility. Is transmitted (uploaded) to the center-side terminal 14 through the Internet 11 to register the facility schedule information and the control target area in the database 20 of the center-side terminal 14.
[0025]
Here, a case where the subject facility is the school 15 will be described with reference to FIG. 2 as an example where a school official registers the schedule information of the school 15 in the database 20 of the center terminal 14. For example, the school official selects a month and day, and inputs a school attendance period, a school attendance period, and special notes into the terminal with reference to the timetable of the selected month and the schedule of extracurricular activities. The terminal registers the schedule information of the school 15 in the database 20 of the center side terminal 14 by transmitting the school attendance time zone, the school leaving time zone and the special notes inputted to the center side terminal 14 via the Internet 11 by the terminal. .
[0026]
FIG. 2 shows that school officials, for example, as schedule information for “April 5”, the school attendance time zone is “7:30 to 8:30”, and the school attendance time zone is “11:00 to 12:00” ”,“ Special opening ”is entered in the special remarks, and for example, as schedule information for“ April 12 ”, the school attendance time zone is“ 7: 30-8: 30 ”and the school attendance time zone is“ 14:00 ” “00 minutes to 17:00” is entered, and for example, as schedule information for “April 25”, the school attendance time zone is “7:30 to 8:30” and the school attendance time zone is “13:00”. This shows a case where “individual interview” is input as a special note in minutes to 14:00. In this case, the school official may register schedule information for the next year around the end of the fiscal year (for example, March), or the next day at the end of the semester (for example, March, July, December). The semester schedule information may be registered, the schedule information for the next month may be registered at the end of the month, or the schedule for the next day may be registered on that day.
[0027]
Further, a case where the subject facility registers the control target area of the school 15 in the database 20 of the center terminal 14 will be described with reference to FIG. For example, the school personnel inputs a radius distance centered on the position of the school 15 to the terminal. The terminal transmits the distance of the radius centered on the position of the school 15 input by the school official to the center side terminal 14 through the Internet 11, so that the control target area of the school 15 is stored in the database 20 of the center side terminal 14. sign up.
[0028]
FIG. 3 shows a case where a school official registers two areas, a warning output target area and a maximum speed regulation target area, as control target areas. For example, “6 km radius centered on school” as a warning output target area. Is registered, and for example, “3 kilometers radius centered at school” is registered as the maximum speed regulation target area.
[0029]
By the way, as described above, in the process of inputting the schedule information and the control target area, the password is input, and the input of the schedule information and the control target area is permitted on condition that the password authentication result is positive. In this case, it is possible to prevent the unauthorized schedule information and the control target area from being input by a third party other than the school personnel, and it is possible to improve the reliability of the system.
[0030]
Further, the center side terminal 14 installed in the center 13 can be connected to a terminal (not shown) installed in a specific organization 21 such as a government office through the Internet 11. As will be described in detail later, the terminal installed in the specific engine 21 permits the maximum speed of the vehicle-side terminal 2 to be regulated.
[0031]
Next, the operation of the above configuration will be described with reference to FIGS. In this case, the description will be made on the assumption that the target facility is the school 15 and the vehicle 1 travels along the travel locus indicated by the solid line P in FIG. Further, the center side terminal 14 holds the schedule information shown in FIG. 2 as the schedule information of the school 15 in the database 20, and the warning output target area and the maximum speed regulation shown in FIG. Description will be made on the assumption that the target area is held in the database 20.
[0032]
When the current position of the vehicle 1 is detected by the GPS receiver 4 (step S1), the vehicle-side terminal 2 centers the detected current position of the vehicle 1 from the wide area radio 5 or the narrow area radio 6 through the Internet 11. It transmits to the side terminal 14 (step S2). Thereafter, each time the current position of the vehicle 1 is detected by the GPS receiver 4, the vehicle-side terminal 2 obtains the detected current position of the vehicle 1 from the wide area wireless device 5 or the narrow area wireless device 6 through the Internet 11. Transmit to the terminal 14.
[0033]
Now, a case where the current position of the vehicle 1 is at the position indicated by “A” in FIG. 6, that is, the vehicle 1 is traveling outside the warning output target area will be described. When the center side terminal 14 receives the current position of the vehicle 1 from the vehicle side terminal 2, the center side terminal 14 determines whether or not the vehicle 1 is traveling in the warning output target area. In this case, the vehicle 1 outputs a warning. Since it is detected that the vehicle is traveling outside the target area, no signal is transmitted to the vehicle-side terminal 2. That is, at this time, the vehicle-side terminal 2 displays a normal route guidance screen on the display device 7 as shown in FIG.
[0034]
Next, the case where the current position of the vehicle 1 is at the position indicated by “B” in FIG. 6, that is, the vehicle 1 enters the warning output target area and the vehicle 1 is traveling in the warning output target area. explain. When the center side terminal 14 receives the current position of the vehicle 1 from the vehicle side terminal 2 (step T1), the center side terminal 14 determines whether or not the vehicle 1 is traveling in the warning output target area. Since it is detected that 1 is traveling in the warning output target area (step T2), the schedule information of the school 15 registered in the database 20 is referred to (step T3).
[0035]
Here, if the time at that time is, for example, a school attendance period, the center side terminal 14 transmits a warning output signal to the vehicle side terminal 2 via the Internet 11 (step T4). Specifically, if the time when the center side terminal 14 detects that the current position of the vehicle 1 is within the warning output target area is “April 4” “7:45”, for example, Since the time is the school attendance period, a warning output signal is transmitted to the vehicle side terminal 2 through the Internet 11.
[0036]
When the vehicle side terminal 2 receives the warning output signal from the center side terminal 14 (step S3), as shown in FIG. 7B, for example, “the current time zone, the child is in school. The warning message “Please pay attention to the message” is displayed on the display device 7 and such a warning message is output from the voice output device 8 (step S4). In this case, the vehicle-side terminal 2 may only display the warning message on the display device 7 without outputting the warning message from the audio output device 8, or display the warning message on the display device 7. Alternatively, the warning message may be simply output from the voice output device 8. Further, FIG. 7B shows a case where the warning message is displayed in a window format so as to overlap the route guidance screen. However, if the route guidance screen is not displayed on the display device 7, only the warning message is displayed. May be displayed on the display device 7.
[0037]
When the vehicle 1 travels in the area registered as the warning output area of the school 15 in the time zone registered as the school attendance time zone by the series of processes described above, a warning message is displayed on the display device 7. Since the information is displayed or a warning message is output from the audio output device 8, the driver can be made aware of the pedestrian (child), and the driver can be aware of safe driving.
[0038]
Next, the current position of the vehicle 1 is at a position indicated by “C” in FIG. 6, that is, the vehicle 1 enters the maximum speed restriction target area from the warning output target area, and the vehicle 1 is in the maximum speed restriction target area. A case where the vehicle is traveling inside will be described. When the center-side terminal 14 receives the current position of the vehicle 1 from the vehicle-side terminal 2 (step T5), in this case, the center-side terminal 14 detects that the vehicle 1 is traveling in the maximum speed regulation target area. Therefore (step T6), the maximum speed regulation signal is transmitted to the vehicle side terminal 2 through the Internet 11 (step T7).
[0039]
When the vehicle side terminal 2 receives the maximum speed regulation signal from the center side terminal 14 (step S7), as shown in FIG. 8 (a), for example, the maximum of “the maximum speed is regulated to 30 km / h”. A notification message indicating that the speed is restricted is displayed on the display device 7, such a notification message is output from the voice output device 8 (step S 8), and a maximum speed restriction signal is output to the engine ECU 12 (step S 9). . In this case as well, the vehicle-side terminal 2 may simply display the notification message on the display device 7 without outputting the notification message from the voice output device 8, or display the notification message on the display device 7. Instead, the notification message may be simply output from the voice output device 8.
[0040]
When the maximum speed regulation signal is input from the vehicle-side terminal 2 (step U1), the engine ECU 12 changes the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel from, for example, “180 kilometers per hour” to “30 kilometers per hour”. Then, the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel is regulated (step U2). That is, after that, even if the driver steps on the accelerator to increase the speed of the vehicle 1, the speed of the vehicle 1 is suppressed to “30 km / h” at the maximum.
[0041]
By the series of processes described above, the vehicle 1 can travel when the vehicle 1 travels in the area registered as the maximum speed regulation area of the school 15 during the time period registered as the school 15 school attendance period. Since the maximum speed is regulated, even if the driver steps on the accelerator in order to increase the speed, the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel is regulated, which is contrary to the intention to increase the speed of the driver. Thus, the speed of the vehicle 1 can be kept constant.
[0042]
Next, the current position of the vehicle 1 is at a position indicated by “D” in FIG. 6, that is, the vehicle 1 enters the warning output target area from the maximum speed regulation target area, and the vehicle 1 is in the warning output target area. A case where the vehicle is traveling will be described. When the center-side terminal 14 receives the current position of the vehicle 1 from the vehicle-side terminal 2 (step T8), in this case, the center-side terminal 14 detects that the vehicle 1 is traveling in the warning output target area. Therefore (step T9), a maximum speed restriction release signal is transmitted to the vehicle side terminal 2 through the Internet 11 (step T10).
[0043]
When the vehicle side terminal 2 receives the maximum speed restriction release signal from the center side terminal 14 (step S12), as shown in FIG. 8B, for example, the maximum speed “to release the restriction on the maximum speed”. A notification message indicating that the restriction is released is displayed on the display device 7, such a notification message is output from the voice output device 8 (step S 13), and a maximum speed restriction release signal is output to the engine ECU 12 (step S 13). S14). In this case as well, the vehicle-side terminal 2 may simply display the notification message on the display device 7 without outputting the notification message from the voice output device 8, or display the notification message on the display device 7. Instead, the notification message may be simply output from the voice output device 8.
[0044]
When the maximum speed restriction release signal is input from the vehicle-side terminal 2 (step U3), the engine ECU 12 changes the maximum speed at which the vehicle 1 can travel from, for example, “30 kilometers per hour” to “180 kilometers per hour”. Thus, the restriction on the maximum speed is released (step U4). At this time, since the vehicle 1 is traveling in the warning output target area, the vehicle-side terminal 2 has, as described above, as shown in FIG. While the warning message “Please pay attention to the child jumping out of school” is displayed on the display device 7 again, such a warning message may be output from the voice output device 8 again.
[0045]
By the way, the above describes the configuration in which the warning output target area and the maximum speed regulation target area are distinguished as the control target area, but the warning output target area and the maximum speed regulation target area are the same configuration. In other words, the maximum speed may be regulated substantially simultaneously with displaying / outputting the warning message.
[0046]
Further, the above describes the configuration in which the center side terminal 14 determines whether the current position of the vehicle 1 is in the warning output target area or the maximum speed regulation target area. By transmitting the warning output target area and the maximum speed regulation target area to the vehicle side terminal 2, the vehicle side terminal 2 determines whether the current position of the vehicle 1 is within the warning output target area or the maximum speed regulation target area. It may be configured to determine. In that case, when the vehicle side terminal 2 detects that the current position of the vehicle 1 is within the warning output target area, the vehicle side terminal 2 transmits a request to the center side terminal 14, and the center side terminal 14 receives a request from the vehicle side terminal 2. When received, the schedule information of the school 15 registered in the database 20 may be referred to.
[0047]
Further, the above is an example in which the target facility is the school 15, but if the target facility is, for example, a concert hall 16, the start time and end time of the concert can be set to the center terminal 14 By registering it in the database 20, it is possible to raise the driver's awareness of caution with respect to pedestrians entering the concert hall 16 and pedestrians entering from the concert hall 16.
[0048]
Similarly, if the target facility is the racetrack 17, the opening time and closing time are registered in the database 20 of the center terminal 14, and the target facility is the department store 18. For example, by registering the opening time and closing time in the database 20 of the center terminal 14, if the target facility is a company / factory 19, the attendance time and the leaving time are displayed in the database of the center terminal 14. By registering in No. 20, processing similar to that described above can be performed.
[0049]
Further, regardless of whether a warning output signal or a maximum speed regulation signal is received from the center side terminal 14 using narrow area wireless communication between the vehicle side terminal 2 and the roadside radio device installed on the roadside. The vehicle-side terminal 2 may be configured to display / output a warning message or restrict the maximum speed. Specifically, referring to FIG. 9, if the school 15 is a target facility, the roadside in which the vehicle 1 is installed at an intersection relatively far from the school 15 during the school 15 attendance period. When passing through the communication area of the wireless device (the area indicated by the broken line M in FIG. 9), the narrow area wireless device 5 of the vehicle 1 and the roadside wireless device perform narrow area wireless communication, whereby the vehicle side terminal 2 is For example, it is configured so as to display and output a warning message “Please pay attention to the jumping out of the child that is currently attending school”, and the vehicle 1 from the school 15 during the school 15 When passing through the communication area of the roadside wireless device installed at a relatively close intersection (the area indicated by the broken line N in FIG. 9), the narrowband wireless device 5 of the vehicle 1 and the roadside wireless device become narrowband wireless. By communicating, the vehicle side terminal 2 is the fastest It may be configured to regulate.
[0050]
Further, the schedule information is transmitted from the center side terminal 14 to the vehicle side terminal 2, the vehicle side terminal 2 refers to the schedule information, and determines whether or not the facility user may move around the facility at that time. When it is detected that there is a possibility that the facility user may move around the facility at the time, a warning message may be displayed and output, or the maximum speed may be regulated. Further, when the vehicle side terminal 2 is setting a route to reach the destination, the vehicle side terminal 2 is configured to receive schedule information regarding facilities around the route from the center side terminal 14. Also good.
[0051]
Further, the schedule information of the facilities registered in the database 20 may be transmitted to the vehicle-side terminal 2 regardless of whether or not the vehicle 1 is traveling in the control target area. If configured, the driver can recognize the movement of people in the facility prior to entering the controlled area and, in some cases, travel around the facility (bypass). Is also possible.
[0052]
