  When the communication destination is input from the communication destination input unit 11 by the user, the communication device 1 is compared with the communication destination list stored in the communication destination database 12 in the communication destination determination unit 13, and the input communication destination is determined in advance. When included in the registered communication destination list, the presentation information determination unit 15 selects presentation information corresponding to the communication destination from the presentation information database 14. The selected presentation information is presented by the information presentation unit 16. At this time, by obtaining the biometric information or environmental information of the user who uses the communication device 1, it is possible to present information optimal for the user's situation. For example, when the user is in an emergency situation, a message to calm the user can be presented. In addition, it is possible to assist the user in dealing with the situation.

  Next, processing in which the communication device 1 selects and presents information corresponding to the contact information to the user will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. FIG. 2 shows a typical information presentation process by the communication device 1.

  When a communication destination is input from the user to the communication destination input unit 11 in the communication device 1 (step S1), the communication destination determination unit 13 determines whether or not the contact destination is registered in advance in the communication destination database 12. (Step S2). When the contact information is registered in the communication destination database 12 (step S: yes), the biological information detection unit 18 starts detecting the biological information, and the environmental information detection unit 19 acquires the environmental information (step S3). ). The presentation information determination unit 15 is optimized from the presentation information database 14 according to the biological information sent from the biological information detection unit 18, the environmental information sent from the environment information detection unit 19, and the determination result by the communication destination determination unit 13. Selected information is sent to the information presentation unit 16 and presented in the information presentation unit 16 (step S4). In addition, communication between the communication device 1 and the input contact information is established (step S5), and communication or communication can be performed.

  The information presentation process shown in FIG. 2 includes a step of detecting biometric information and environmental information after the contact is determined. The acquisition of the biometric information and environmental information is performed by the communication device 1 being activated. May be performed at any time during the period, and can be independent from the series of information presentation processes shown in FIG.

  Specific methods for presenting information according to the communication destination to the user are as follows: (1) When presenting before calling the communication destination, (2) When presenting the communication destination while calling, (3 ) When presenting continuously during a call, (4) When presenting after a call, or (5) A combination of 1-4.

  Next, a specific example of the communication device 1 is shown in FIG. The communication device 1 includes a detection unit for biometric information or environmental information, and is a mobile phone equipped with not only a general call function using a mobile phone communication network but also a function to connect to the Internet. In this specific example, a case where the contact is a fire department, a police station, or other emergency communication destination will be described.

  As shown in FIG. 3, the communication device 1 includes a telephone receiver 21 that transmits received voice data to a user as a sound and a transmitter 22 that converts the user's utterance into voice data as a configuration for a telephone function as a telephone. It has. These are connected to the internal bus 20 by interfaces 23 and 24. In addition, an external communication interface 25 for connecting to the Internet via the mobile phone communication network or the mobile phone communication network is provided.

  The communication device 1 shown in FIG. 3 is equivalent to the communication destination input unit 11 shown in FIG. 1 in addition to the input of the telephone number of the communication destination, the address on the network, etc. by the user and various input operations to the device. The input key 26 is provided. The input key 26 is assigned hiragana and romaji to the numeric keypad, and can input characters. The communication apparatus 1 also includes a memory 27 that functions as the communication destination database 12 and a content memory 28 that functions as the presentation information database 14. The memory 27 stores a fire department (119), a police station (110), maritime incident contact information, and a disaster message dial as emergency call contacts. Further, the user may be able to register an emergency contact address. The content memory 28 stores the heart rate obtained based on the detection signal from the heart rate sensor 35 and the perspiration level obtained based on the detection signal from the perspiration sensor 37, that is, the tension level, and the content to be presented in association with each other. Has been.

The communication device 1 shown in FIG. 3 includes an audio output driver 29 and an audio output unit 30 that present audio information, and a display unit driver 31 and a display unit 32 that present image information. Also,

A general-purpose speaker is used as the audio output unit 30 and an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is used as the display unit 32.

  As the biological information detection unit 18 in FIG. 1, a heart rate sensor 35 and a sweat sensor 37 are used. The heart rate sensor 35 detects a pulse from the pulse wave of the user who has the communication device 1 in hand. The pulse detected here can be considered to be substantially equivalent to the heartbeat although the phase is slightly different from the heartbeat. The pulse speeds up in tension and excitement, and decreases in rest. Usually, the pulse wave can be detected by an optical pulse wave sensor. As shown in FIG. 4, the optical pulse wave sensor includes an infrared light emitting diode 351 that irradiates inspection light of a specific wavelength and a phototransistor 352 that detects reflected light, and irradiates inspection light of a specific wavelength to the fingertip. It is a sensor that detects a pulse wave by detecting transmitted light or reflected light on the ventral side. The heart rate sensor 35 sends a detection signal to the A / D converter 36.

  Further, the sweat sensor 37 is a sensor for detecting skin electrical reflection or skin resistance value (GSR), and utilizes the fact that the electrical resistance of the skin changes due to sweat. Skin electrical reflex or skin resistance (GSR) is a biometric indicator that is also used in polygraphs, so-called lie detectors. In order to measure GSR, it is necessary to detect skin reflection (resistance) between at least two points on the skin. In general, an electrode is brought into contact between two points of a finger or palm and a weak current is supplied to detect a change amount of resistance or the like. The communication device 1 includes these detection sensors at positions where biometric information can be continuously measured without performing an explicit acquisition operation if the user uses it in a normal usage method during a call, mail input, operation, or the like. ing. For example, when the surface on which the guidance display for operation and the display screen for displaying information are provided is the front surface of the outer casing, sweat is applied to the side surface portion or the corner portion of the outer edge of the communication device 1 or the operation input button surface. A sensor can be provided. The sweat sensor 37 sends a detection signal to the A / D converter 38.

  FIG. 5 illustrates an example in which a heart rate sensor 35 and a sweat sensor 37 are attached to the side surface of the outer edge of the communication device 1. As shown in FIG. 5, if the user holds the communication device 1 including the heart rate sensor 35 and the sweat sensor 37 by the most general method, the thumb is placed on the heart rate sensor 35 when the communication device 1 is held. In addition, a part of the palm is brought into contact with the sweat sensor 37 without feeling uncomfortable. Therefore, while the user is using the communication device 1, pulse waves and sweating can be continuously measured. The heart rate sensor 35 and the sweat sensor 37 are preferably provided on the side surface opposite to the side surface portion shown in FIG. In this case, the heart rate and GSR can be detected regardless of whether the user holds the right hand or the left hand.

  The A / D converters 36 and 38 convert the analog signals detected by the sensors into digital signals and send them to the internal bus 20. The GPS unit 39 obtains position information represented by latitude and longitude from the arrival time difference of radio waves from GPS satellites. The radio wave from the GPS satellite includes the absolute time. The CCD 40 is provided on the back side of the communication device 1 shown in FIG. 5 or adjacent to the display unit, and can capture an external situation, a speaker's face, and the like.

  The communication apparatus 1 includes a CPU 41 that performs overall control of each configuration described above, a ROM 42 that stores software for executing information presentation processing in the CPU 41, and a RAM 43 as a work area of the CPU 41. The CPU 41 is stored in the ROM 42 and executes a program for executing the information presentation process described with reference to FIG. That is, the CPU 41 has functions as the communication destination determination unit 13 and the presentation information determination unit 15, and determines whether or not the contact input with the input key 26 is a contact registered in advance in the memory 27. When the contact information is registered in the memory 27, detection of biological information is started by the heart rate sensor 35 and the sweat sensor 37, and position information is acquired by the GPS unit 39. In addition, the CPU 41 selects optimal information from the content memory 28 according to the detection signals sent from the heart rate sensor 35 and the sweat sensor 37, the position information sent from the GPS unit 39, and the discrimination result. Further, communication between the communication device 1 and the input contact information is established.

  In addition, the CPU 41 executes a process of determining the psychological state of the user who is a caller by facial expression recognition from facial expressions such as eye movements and blinks of the user imaged by the CCD 40.

  As shown in FIG. 6, a normal dial tone signal of a push phone is a DTMF (Dual Tone Multiple Frequency) signal generated by a combination of two kinds of dial sounds having different frequencies. Therefore, the dial number selected by the DTMF signal can be determined.

  Next, types of information presentation by the communication device 1 will be described. There are the following examples of how to present information. The timing for presenting information will be described later.

(D) A vibration is given with a rhythm that relaxes the user. Alternatively, the LED 33 is turned on with a rhythm that relaxes the user. At this time, the light and dark of the LED 33 are changed with a rhythm that is close to a normal heartbeat. Alternatively, the vibrator 34 is vibrated with a rhythm close to a normal heartbeat. Therefore, every time the user uses the communication apparatus 1, the heart rate of the user is detected by the heart rate sensor 35, and the average heart rate value in the normal time is calculated and held. The lighting rhythm of the LED 33 or the vibration rhythm of the vibrator 34 is set to this heartbeat average value.

(E) When selecting information presented in (A) to (D), information selection based on position information is performed. In this specific example, the information is selected based on position information and time information acquired by the GPS unit. Display or play a message. For example, “Send to the fire department. Your current location is“ Near XX Ward XX 2-25 ”. The time is “1:23 am”. Please calm down and tell the place. "Is displayed or reproduced. An example of a screen displayed on the display unit 34 when displayed is shown in FIG.

(F) When selecting the information presented in (A) to (E), information selection based on biological information is performed. In the content memory 28, for example, as shown in FIG. The heart rate obtained based on this and the perspiration level obtained based on the detection signal in the perspiration sensor 37, that is, the tension level, and the content to be presented are stored in association with each other. Depending on your heart rate and sweating level (tensileness), “It seems to be very nervous. Let's calm down first,” “It seems a little impatient. Let us calm down and tell the situation.” “ Please tell me the situation slowly and slowly. "
