9, the remittee executes the courier service app installed in the terminal 20 to set the schedule information, the location information, and the courier delivery method of the courier service location (501).

The schedule information, the location information, and the home delivery location set by the terminal 20 are transmitted to the service center 40 (502).

The service center 40 receives the schedule information, the location information, and the home delivery location from the terminal 20 and constructs the recipient DB 44 (503).

The unmanned courier vehicle 10 inquires the courier system DB (504), and requests payee information to the service center 40 (505) to search the courier delivery route that is interlocked with the schedule information and the position information.

The service center 40 receives the remittee information from the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 and transmits the remittee information (schedule information, location information, and home delivery location), and transmits the traffic information of the relevant section to the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 (506).

Accordingly, the unmanned courier vehicle 10 searches for the courier delivery route on the basis of the information of the recipient (schedule information, location information, delivery courier receiving location) and traffic information of the corresponding section (507).

Meanwhile, when the location information is transmitted from the terminal 20, the location information transmitted from the terminal 20 is transmitted to the service center 40 (508).

Then, when the remittee changes the schedule information, the schedule information changed in the terminal 20 is transmitted to the service center 40 (509).

Accordingly, the service center 40 receives the changed schedule information and location information from the terminal 20 and changes the recipient DB 44 (510).

The service center 40 periodically transmits location information or traffic information to the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 (511), and transmits the changed schedule information to the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 (512) when the schedule is changed.

The unmanned courier vehicle 10 receives the periodic location information, the changed schedule information, and the traffic information from the service center 40 and searches for the courier delivery route again (513).

When the courier delivery route arrives at the courier delivery location through search and re-search of the courier delivery route, the unmanned courier vehicle 10 requests the recipient's information location to the service center 40 and the service center 40 sends the information Lt; / RTI >

Accordingly, the terminal 20 transmits the information position of the remittee to the service center 40, and the service center 40 transmits the information position of the remittee to the unmanned delivery vehicle 10.

The unmanned courier vehicle 10 delivers a courier item if the coupon is present at the current position, that is, the courier delivery position.

If there is no recipient at the current location, the recipient is notified of the message of the corresponding item, grasps the recipient's next schedule, and re-distributes the courier item.

Next, a method of setting the priority order for delivering the courier goods will be described.

The priority is determined by the estimated delivery time and distance between the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 and the delivery location / payee location.

The first priority is the expected delivery time, and the second priority is the delivery distance. This is because, depending on the road traffic situation, even if the distance is close, the arrival time takes longer.

For example, if the delivery time of the B article is shorter than the delivery time of the B article than the delivery time of the B article, the delivery time of the B article is shorter than the delivery time of the A article, .

Also, when searching for a courier delivery route, priority is given to a fixed item of a courier item, and items with a variability are lowered in priority and start with the following criteria.

(1) Confirm items whose courier delivery locations are fixed in the courier goods.

(2) Check the schedule linked items. At this time, it is possible to check the current position of the search time reference recipient and consider the case where the position is at a position where the courier can be received and the case where the coupon can not be received at the courier receiving position.

(3) Confirm the location linked items. Deliver the item to the recipient at the current location.

(4) Check schedule and location complex interlocked goods. In this case, (2) and (3) are combined to confirm the current position of the search time reference recipient and deliver the courier product.

Next, an example of a method of searching for a courier delivery route will be described with reference to FIG.

FIG. 10 is a view for explaining an example of a courier delivery route search according to an embodiment of the present invention. It is assumed that a receiver and a home delivery destination are distributed.

In Fig. 10, O indicates the remittee location, and DELTA indicates the home delivery location.

If the courier delivery method is selected in conjunction with the recipient's location information, the recipient location and the courier delivery location search for the courier delivery route as in (1).

If the courier receiving method is selected based on the courier receiving location, the receiver location and the courier receiving location search the courier delivery route as shown in (2).

When the courier receiving method is selected in conjunction with the recipient's schedule information, the courier position and the courier receiving location search the courier delivery route as shown in (3).

If the courier delivery method is selected in conjunction with the schedule information and the location information of the receiver, the receiver location and the courier delivery location search for the courier delivery route as in (4) or (5).

10, when the courier delivery route is searched, the unmanned courier vehicle 10 sends the delivery distance d, the estimated delivery time t, and the delivery distance 3d to the courier receipt location (2), (3) (3) (3) (5), (5), (5) and (2d) and estimated delivery time (2.5t) to the payee's location.

The shipping order is based on estimated time of delivery as follows: ① → ③ → ④ → ② → ⑤.

After the delivery of ①, as the location information changes differently according to the destination of ①, the route search of the delivery route is performed again in ①.

If the shipping order is changed in the order of ⑤, ②, ④, ③, as a result of searching the courier delivery route in ①, the next destination will be ⑤.

Next, a method for searching for a courier delivery route when the location information of the recipient is changed after an initial search for the courier delivery route will be described with reference to FIG.

11 is a view for explaining a case where the remittee location is changed in the parcel delivery route search of FIG.

11, in the case where the remittee position of the No. 4 recipient is changed to the corresponding section during delivery from the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 to the recipient position 1, the following process is performed.

After confirming the arrival time of the courier to the recipient ④, check whether it is receivable.

If the recipient ④ can receive the courier, the courier will be delivered. If the recipient ④ can not receive the courier, the courier delivery method shall be set according to the courier delivery method.

Next, a method of searching for a parcel delivery route when the parcel delivery destination is changed from the parcel delivery destination to the payee location will be described with reference to FIG.

FIG. 12 is a diagram for explaining a case where the courier delivery location is changed from the courier receiving location to the payee location in the courier delivery route search of FIG.

In Fig. 12, when the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 changes the receiving method of No. 2 during delivery from the unmanned delivery vehicle 10 to the No. 1 position and is located in the corresponding section, the following processing is performed.

② After informing the consignee of the arrival time of the courier, deliver the courier item. The recipient of ② shall accept the delivery of goods by default or, in case of remorse, treat it the same as the previous case. If the ② recipient can be received, the courier is delivered. If the ② recipient is unable to receive the courier, the courier delivery method is set according to the courier delivery method.
