It is configured to be implemented. For convenience, the switch ID of the driver declaration switch SW1 is “100”, and the switch ID of the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 is “200”.

  Although details will be described later, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 specifies a user corresponding to the driver and a user corresponding to the passenger occupant based on the operation history of the driver declaration switch SW1 and the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2. A service for applying vehicle settings according to the user's preference (that is, a vehicle setting application service) is implemented. That is, the selection operation of the driver declaration switch SW1 and the selection operation of the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 correspond to examples of operations for enjoying the vehicle setting application service. The driver declaration switch SW1 corresponds to an example of a driver attribute switch described in the claims, and the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 corresponds to an example of a passenger seat occupant attribute switch described in the claims.

  As illustrated in FIG. 7, the operation history data Dt stored in the flash memory 201C is data in which, for example, the switch ID of the switch selected by the user is associated with the date and time when the operation was performed. The operation history data Dt may be stored in chronological order so that, for example, the latest data is at the top of the list. The example shown in FIG. 7 shows that the switch with switch ID = 100 (that is, driver declaration switch SW1) was selected as the latest operation at 9:15:40 on June 18, 2015. As the previous operation, at 15:54:27 on June 11, 2015, the switch with the switch ID = 200 (that is, the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2) is selected. Of the storage areas provided in the flash memory 201C, the storage area storing the operation history data Dt corresponds to the operation history storage section described in the claims.

  And the portable side control part 201 returns the operation history information according to the requested | required content in cooperation with the near field communication part 202 based on the request | requirement from the onboard equipment 100. FIG. Details of the operation of the portable side control unit 201 will be described later.

<About passenger information acquisition processing>
Next, occupant information acquisition processing performed by the vehicle-side control unit 101 will be described using the flowchart shown in FIG. The occupant information acquisition process is for acquiring information about the occupant in this trip, specifically, who is the user corresponding to the driver, who is the user corresponding to the passenger on the passenger seat, etc. It is a series of processes.

  The flowchart shown in FIG. 8 may be started when, for example, the vehicle-side control unit 101 detects that the vehicular portable device has entered the smart communication range of the vehicle-mounted device 100. Note that whether or not the vehicle portable device has entered the smart communication range may be determined based on whether or not there is a response from the vehicle portable device to a signal (so-called polling signal) periodically transmitted by the vehicle-mounted device 100. . That is, when the response signal from the portable vehicle device is received in a state where the response signal from the portable device for the vehicle with respect to the polling signal is continued, the portable device for the vehicle enters the smart communication range. What is necessary is just to determine with having entered.

  Of course, the conditions for starting this occupant information acquisition process may be designed as appropriate, and may be started, for example, when the authentication process by wireless communication between the vehicle-mounted device 100 and the vehicle portable device is successful. The occupant information acquisition process may be started when the vehicle information acquisition unit F1 detects that the door is opened, or starts when the user is seated in the driver seat or the passenger seat. May be. Furthermore, it may be started when it is detected that the seat belt of the driver seat or the passenger seat is worn, or when it is detected that the engine start button 105 is pushed by the user.

  First, in step S1, the vehicle-side control unit 101 causes the short-range communication unit 102 to perform a scanning process, detects the portable terminal 200 present around the vehicle V, and proceeds to step S2. In step S2, it is determined whether one or more portable terminals 200 have been detected as a result of the scanning process in step S1. If at least one portable terminal 200 is detected, an affirmative determination is made in step S2 and the process proceeds to step S3. On the other hand, if no mobile terminal 200 has been detected, a negative determination is made in step S2 and this flow is terminated.

  In addition, the number of the portable terminals 200 detected by the scanning process in step S1 suggests the minimum number of passengers of the vehicle V in the current trip. That is, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 can estimate the minimum number of occupants as information about the occupants in the current trip by performing the scanning process.

  In step S3, the short-range communication processing unit F3 requests an operation history request to return operation history information indicating the latest date and time when the driver declaration switch SW1 (switch ID = 100) is operated (hereinafter, the latest operation date and time). A signal is generated and transmitted to the short-range communication unit 102, and the process proceeds to step S4. In addition, this step S3 should just be implemented based on the request | requirement of the passenger | crew information acquisition part F4. The mobile terminal 200 that has received the operation history request signal transmitted in step S3 refers to the operation history data Dt, and generates operation history information indicating the latest date and time when the switch with the switch ID = 100 is selected. Return it.

  In step S4, it waits for the return of the operation history information from the portable terminal 200 detected in step S1, and moves to step S5 when the operation history information from each portable terminal 200 detected in step S1 has been received. Note that if there is a mobile terminal 200 that does not return the operation history information even after a predetermined time has passed from step S4, the process may be performed again from step S1.

  In step S5, the driver specifying unit F41 compares the latest operation date and time with respect to the driver declaration switch SW1 in each mobile terminal 200, and determines the user corresponding to the mobile terminal 200 with the latest date and time when the driver declaration switch SW1 is selected. It is estimated that the user corresponds to a trip driver, and the process proceeds to step S6. Each mobile terminal 200 may be identified by the terminal ID, and the correspondence between the terminal ID and the user may be specified based on the user management data.

  In step S6, the near field communication processing unit F3 generates an operation history request signal for requesting to return the latest operation date and time of the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 (switch ID = 200), and transmits the operation history request signal to the near field communication unit 102. Then, the process proceeds to step S7. Note that the series of processing from step S6 to step S8 described later may be omitted when the number of mobile terminals 200 detected in step S1 is one. In that case, it is sufficient to move from step S5 to step S9.

  Each portable terminal 200 that has received the operation history request signal transmitted in step S6 refers to the operation history data Dt, and generates operation history information indicating the latest date and time when the switch with the switch ID = 200 is selected. And return it.

  In step S7, it waits for the return of the operation history information from the portable terminal 200 detected in step S1, and moves to step S5 when the operation history information from each portable terminal 200 has been received. Note that if there is a mobile terminal 200 that does not return the operation history information even after a lapse of a certain time after moving to step S7, step S6 may be performed again.

  In step S8, the passenger seat occupant specifying unit F42 compares the latest operation date and time for the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 in each mobile terminal 200, and the date and time when the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 is selected becomes the newest mobile terminal 200. The corresponding user is estimated to be a user corresponding to the passenger seat passenger of the current trip.

  However, if the user who is estimated to be equivalent to the passenger on the passenger seat of the current trip is estimated by the driver specifying unit F41 to be a user corresponding to the driver of the current trip, the estimation result of the driver specifying unit F41 Shall take precedence. In this case, the passenger seat occupant specifying unit F42 selects a user corresponding to the mobile terminal 200 having the second most recent date and time when the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 is selected among the mobile terminals 200 as the passenger seat occupant of this trip. It is estimated that the user is equivalent to. When the process in step S8 is completed, the process proceeds to step S9.

  In step S9, the setting reflection unit F6 changes the setting state of each unit in the vehicle V or executes a predetermined operation based on the occupant information acquired by the occupant information acquisition unit F4. In addition, the connection terminal determination unit F5 establishes a connection between the mobile terminal 200 of the user corresponding to the driver and the vehicle-mounted device 100. When the various processes in step S9 are completed, this flow is finished.

<Summary of First Embodiment>
In the above configuration, it is determined that the user corresponding to the portable terminal 200 having the latest date and time when the driver declaration switch SW1 is selected (assumed to be the latest operation terminal) is the user who plays the role of a driver in the current trip. (presume. That is, a user who has performed an operation of selecting the driver declaration switch SW1 at the date and time closest to the current time is regarded as a driver.

  Here, the case where the user selects the driver declaration switch SW1 is a case where the user intends to use the vehicle V as a driver. Therefore, the user who has selected the driver declaration switch SW1 at the date and time closest to the current time is Relatively, there is a higher possibility of boarding as a driver on this trip than other users. In particular, the closer the date when the driver declaration switch SW1 is selected in the latest operation terminal is closer to the time when the passenger information acquisition process as the current time is performed, the higher the possibility that the user corresponding to the latest operation terminal is the driver.

  Therefore, according to the above configuration, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 is the operation history information transmitted from each mobile terminal 200 even when there are a plurality of mobile terminals 200 (and users) around the vehicle V. Based on the above, it is possible to more appropriately identify the user as the driver in the current trip.

  In the above configuration, the user corresponding to the mobile terminal 200 with the latest date and time when the operation for selecting the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 is performed is determined (estimated) as the user corresponding to the passenger seat passenger. That is, a user who has performed an operation of selecting the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 at the date and time closest to the current time is regarded as a passenger seat occupant.

  According to such an aspect, as in the case where the user corresponding to the driver is specified, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 is a case where a plurality of portable terminals 200 (and users) exist around the vehicle V. Thus, it is possible to more appropriately identify the user as a passenger in the passenger seat on this trip.

  That is, according to the above configuration, the vehicle-mounted device 100 can estimate passenger attributes (such as a driver and a passenger on the front passenger seat) of a user who gets on the vehicle. Therefore, when there are a plurality of users who get on the vehicle and the vehicle cooperation app App is installed in the mobile terminal 200 carried by the user, the vehicle-mounted device 100 may also acquire information on users other than the driver. It becomes possible. Note that it is not essential to specify a user corresponding to the driver.

  As mentioned above, although embodiment of this invention was described, this invention is not limited to the above-mentioned embodiment, 2nd Embodiment described below and various modifications are also contained in the technical scope of this invention, In addition to the following, various modifications can be made without departing from the scope of the invention.

[Modification 1-1]
In the first embodiment described above, the vehicle-mounted device 100 is configured to individually request the latest operation date and time of the driver declaration switch SW1 and the latest operation date and time of the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2 to each portable terminal 200. Not limited to this. The operation history request signal transmitted by the vehicle-mounted device 100 may be a signal requesting to return operation history information indicating the latest operation date and time for each of a plurality of predetermined types of switch IDs.

  The effect similar to the above-mentioned embodiment can be show | played also by such an aspect. In the configuration of Modification 1-1, the mobile terminal 200 returns operation history information indicating the latest operation date and time for each of a plurality of predetermined types of switch IDs.

[Modification 1-2]
In the first embodiment described above, the occupant attribute input screen is exemplified by the aspect including the driver declaration switch SW1 and the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2, but is not limited thereto. In addition to the driver declaration switch SW1 and the passenger seat occupant declaration switch SW2, the occupant attribute input screen includes a rear seat for inputting that the vehicle V is to be boarded as an occupant seated in the rear seat (referred to as a rear seat occupant). An occupant declaration switch may be provided.

  According to such an aspect, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 specifies a user corresponding to the rear seat occupant through a process similar to the process of specifying the user corresponding to the driver and the user corresponding to the passenger on the passenger seat. Can do.

  More specifically, the passenger attribute input screen may include a switch for designating a position such as a driver seat side or a passenger seat side of the rear seat. According to such an aspect, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 determines whether the user who gets on the vehicle V is seated on the driver seat side of the rear seat in the same manner as the process of identifying the user corresponding to the driver or the like. It is possible to estimate whether the user is seated on the passenger seat side of the rear seat.

[Modification 1-3]
Further, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 may determine the presence or absence of an occupant seated in the rear seat based on the number of mobile terminals 200 detected in step S1 illustrated in FIG. Specifically, when three mobile terminals 200 are detected, it is determined that the user is seated in the rear seat in addition to the driver seat and the passenger seat. Information that there is a user seated in the rear seat (that is, a rear seat occupant) also corresponds to an example of information about the occupant in the current trip.

  In addition, as a result of the detection in step S1, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 detects three mobile terminals 200, and the user corresponding to two of them is specified as a driver and a passenger on the passenger seat If it is, the user corresponding to the remaining one portable terminal 200 may be estimated to be a passenger in the rear seat. According to such an aspect, the setting reflection part F6 can make the vehicle interior environment (for example, preset temperature of air conditioning) around the rear seat an environment according to the preference of the user as the rear seat occupant.

[Second Embodiment]
In 1st Embodiment mentioned above, the vehicle cooperation application App displays the switch for inputting the attribute (whether it is a driver, etc.) as a passenger | crew, such as driver declaration switch SW1 and passenger seat passenger declaration switch SW2. Although illustrated, it is not restricted to this. Vehicle cooperation application App is good also as an aspect which does not make the display of the switch which inputs the attribute as a passenger | crew essential.

  Hereinafter, a second embodiment of the present invention reflecting the above idea will be described with reference to the drawings. In the following, members having the same functions as those of the members of the first embodiment (and modifications thereof) described above are denoted by the same reference numerals and description thereof is omitted. In addition, when only a part of the configuration is mentioned, the first embodiment described above (and its modifications) can be applied to the other parts.

  The vehicle cooperation application App in the second embodiment is a service reservation for accepting a reservation of a service desired by the user from various services that can be provided by the vehicle-mounted device 100 such as an automatic door opening / closing service and an automatic air conditioning service. A screen (see FIG. 9) is displayed.

  The service reservation screen illustrated in FIG. 9 includes a door opening / closing reservation switch SW3 (switch ID = 300) for reserving use of the automatic door opening / closing service, and an air conditioning reservation switch SW4 (switch) for reserving use of the automatic air conditioning service. ID = 400), and an embodiment including a navigation cooperation switch SW5 (switch ID = 500) for reserving the use of the navigation cooperation service.

  The navigation cooperation service is a service that links the navigation ECU 130 and the mobile terminal 200 via the vehicle-mounted device 100. For example, the navigation cooperation service sets information such as a destination, a stop-off point, and a planned travel route that the navigation ECU 130 of the vehicle V wants to set on the vehicle cooperation application App of the mobile terminal 200 in advance. And the like are reflected in the navigation ECU 130. The timing at which the setting such as the destination on the vehicle cooperation app App is reflected in the navigation ECU 130 may be the time when the connection with the vehicle-mounted device 100 is established. In addition, what is necessary is just to set it as the structure which can input the setting of a destination etc. from the display screen after selecting navigation cooperation switch SW5. Of course, the contents of the navigation cooperation service are not limited to those described above, and may be variously designed.

  And the flash memory 201C memorize | stores the user's operation content (switch ID) with respect to the vehicle cooperation application App and the date and time when the operation was performed as operation history data Dt similarly to 1st Embodiment. Note that the service displayed on the service reservation screen of the present embodiment corresponds to a driver service, and the operation history stored in the flash memory 201C is an operation history for the user to enjoy the driver service. It shall correspond to the history. A switch for reserving a service for a driver corresponds to an example of a driver attribute switch described in the claims.

  Next, occupant information acquisition processing performed by the vehicle-side control unit 101 of the second embodiment will be described using the flowchart shown in FIG. The flowchart shown in FIG. 10 may be started when a trigger similar to the flowchart of FIG. 8 is detected.

  First, in step S101, scan processing by the short-range communication unit 102 is performed, and the process proceeds to step S102. In step S102, it is determined whether one or more portable terminals 200 carried by the user of the vehicle V have been detected as a result of the scanning process in step S101. If at least one portable terminal 200 is detected, an affirmative determination is made in step S102 and the process proceeds to step S103. On the other hand, if no mobile terminal 200 has been detected, a negative determination is made in step S102 and the flow ends.

  In step S103, the short-range communication processing unit F3 generates an operation history request signal that requests each portable terminal 200 to return the latest operation date and time for the vehicle cooperation app App, and transmits the operation history request signal to the short-range communication unit 102. Then, the process proceeds to step S104.

  Each of the mobile terminals 200 that has received the operation history request signal transmitted in step S103 refers to the operation history data Dt, and the latest operation content (switch ID) for the vehicle cooperation app App and the operation has been performed. Operation history information indicating the latest date (that is, latest operation date) is generated and returned. Note that, as described above, the latest operation content in the present embodiment corresponds to an operation for the user to enjoy the driver service.

  In step S104, it waits for the return of the operation history information from the portable terminal 200 detected in step S101, and moves to step S105 when the operation history information from each portable terminal 200 has been received.

  In step S105, the driver specifying unit F41 compares the latest operation date and time on each mobile terminal 200, and estimates that the user corresponding to the mobile terminal 200 with the latest operation date and time is the user corresponding to the driver of this trip. Then, the process proceeds to step S106.

  In step S106, the setting reflection unit F6 changes the setting state of each unit in the vehicle V based on the user's vehicle setting data specified as the driver by the driver specifying unit F41, or performs a predetermined operation (lighting lighting, etc.). To execute. Further, the connection terminal determination unit F5 establishes a wireless connection between the user's portable terminal 200 corresponding to the driver and the vehicle-mounted device 100. When various processes are completed, this flow is finished.

  In the above configuration, the user corresponding to the mobile terminal 200 with the latest date and time when the switch for reserving the driver service among the mobile terminals 200 existing around the vehicle-mounted device 100 is selected is displayed in this trip. It is determined that the user plays a role as a driver. That is, a user who has performed an operation for reserving a service for a driver at the date and time closest to the current time is regarded as a driver.

  The case where the user performs an operation for reserving the service for the driver is a case where the user intends to use the vehicle V as a driver. Therefore, the operation for reserving the service for the driver at the date and time closest to the current time. The user who performed is relatively more likely to board as a driver on this trip than other users.

  Therefore, according to the above configuration, even if there are a plurality of portable terminals 200 (and users) around the vehicle V, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 transmits the operation history information transmitted from each portable terminal 200. Based on the above, it is possible to more appropriately identify the user as the driver in the current trip.

[Modification 2-1]
In the second embodiment described above, for convenience, various switches displayed on the service reservation screen are switches for the user to use the driver service, and the operation history stored in the flash memory 201C is for the driver. This corresponds to the history of operations for enjoying the service, but is not limited to this.

  The service reservation screen can be enjoyed when the user gets on the vehicle V as a passenger in the passenger seat (that is, when the user gets on the vehicle V as a rear seat passenger). A switch for reserving a service (that is, a service for a rear seat occupant) may be displayed. Note that a switch for reserving a service for a passenger on the passenger seat corresponds to an example of a passenger seat passenger attribute switch described in the claims.

  The latest operation content on each mobile terminal 200 is the latest operation of the vehicle V such as whether the user of each mobile terminal 200 is using the vehicle V as a driver or whether the user is using the vehicle V as a passenger on the passenger seat. Represents the user's intention regarding use.

  Therefore, the occupant information acquisition unit F4 can estimate the user as the driver in the current trip, the user as the passenger on the passenger seat, and the like from the latest operation content in each portable terminal 200. For example, the latest operation content of a certain mobile terminal 200 is the operation content for enjoying the driver service, and the operation date / time is an operation for enjoying the driver service in another mobile terminal 200. If it is newer than the latest operation date and time, the user of the portable terminal 200 may be estimated as a driver. Similarly, a passenger seat occupant and a rear seat occupant can be specified.

  That is, according to the above configuration, the same effect as that of the first embodiment can be obtained. In addition, by estimating the occupant attribute of each user, the mobile terminal 200 that is preferentially connected to the vehicle-mounted device 100 may be specified, or the vehicle environment may be set to an environment according to each user's preference. become able to.

[Modification 2-2]
In Modification 2-1, the in-vehicle device 100 requests not only information related to the latest operation but also the latest operation date and time for each switch as operation history information, and each mobile terminal 200 performs an operation indicating the latest operation date and time for each switch. The history information may be transmitted. Moreover, the onboard equipment 100 is good also as an aspect which requests | requires the newest operation date with respect to the switch of the specific classification which suggests the attribute as a passenger | crew at the time of boarding the vehicle V instead of the newest operation date for every switch.

[Modification 3-1]
Although the aspect which the onboard equipment 100 and the portable terminal 200 communicate directly was illustrated above, it is not restricted to this. As shown in FIG. 11, the vehicle-mounted device 100 and the portable terminal 200 may communicate with each other via the vehicle portable device 300.

  The communication between the vehicle portable device 300 and the vehicle-mounted device 100 may be implemented using radio waves in a frequency band (LF band or UHF band) used for realizing the smart entry system, or the short-range wireless communication described above. It is good also as an aspect which implements communication based on a standard. Further, communication between the vehicle portable device 300 and the portable terminal 200 may be performed in accordance with the short-range wireless communication standard.

  In such an aspect, a signal (for example, an operation history request signal) transmitted from the vehicle-mounted device 100 is once received by the vehicle portable device 300 and transferred to the portable terminal 200. A signal transmitted from the portable terminal 200 is received by the vehicle portable device 300 and transferred to the vehicle-mounted device 100.

  If the communication method employed for communication between the vehicle-mounted device 100 and the vehicle portable device 300 is different from the communication method employed for communication between the vehicle portable device 300 and the portable terminal 200, the vehicle The portable device 300 converts the data received from the portable terminal 200 or the data received from the vehicle-mounted device 100 and transfers the data so as to conform to each communication method.

  According to the configuration of the third modification, information security when the mobile terminal 200 is connected to the vehicle-mounted device 100 can be further strengthened. Moreover, since the onboard equipment 100 can communicate with the portable terminal 200 using the communication equipment for smart entry systems, it is not necessary to provide the near field communication part 102. FIG. Therefore, the cost required for development and manufacture of the vehicle-mounted device 100 can be reduced.

  The case where the vehicle portable device 300 transfers a signal from the portable terminal 200 to the vehicle-mounted device 100 or a signal from the vehicle-mounted device 100 to the portable terminal 200 is, for example, the vehicle portable device 300. However, what is necessary is just to be the case where the polling signal transmitted from the onboard equipment 100 is received, or the case where the authentication process with the onboard equipment 100 is successful. When the switch for instructing to unlock the door of the vehicle V is provided in the vehicle portable device 300, the function of transferring the above-described data is operated based on the operation of the switch. It is good also as a mode made into a state.

[Modification 3-2]
In the above description, the seat configuration of the vehicle V is exemplified as the two-row configuration of the front seat and the rear seat, but the present invention is not limited to this. The present invention can also be applied to a case where the seat configuration of the vehicle V is a one-row configuration or a three-row configuration.

[Modification 3-3]
Although the aspect in which the onboard equipment 100 hold | maintains vehicle setting data was illustrated above, it is not restricted to this. The vehicle setting data may be held in the mobile terminal 200. Moreover, you may preserve | save at the portable device 300 for vehicles. Furthermore, it is good also as an aspect by which the setting corresponding to the electrical equipment is preserve | saved corresponding to the user ID allocated uniquely to the various electrical equipment (including ECU) mounted in the vehicle V. .
