Title (EN) PORTABLE NAVIGATION SYSTEM COMPRISING DIRECTION DETECTOR, POSITION DETECTOR AND DATABASE
(FR) SYSTEME DE NAVIGATION PORTABLE AVEC DETECTEUR DE DIRECTION, DETECTEUR DE POSITION, ET BASE DE DONNEES
Abstract:
(EN) A portable information-providing apparatus comprising a position detector, a direction detector, a processor, a memory, and information output device. The position detector provides data of a use's position. The direction detector provides data of a direction as determined by the user. The processor operates to correlate said position and direction data with information of features in the user's surroundings as stored in the memory. The information output device provides the information to the user, the information being related to a feature in the user's surroundings generally along the direction determined by the user.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil portable fournissant des informations. Cet appareil comprend un détecteur de position, un détecteur de direction, un processeur, une mémoire, et un dispositif de sortie d'informations. Le détecteur de position fournit des données relatives à la position d'un utilisateur, le détecteur de direction fournissant des données concernant la direction déterminée par cet utilisateur. Le processeur permet de mettre en corrélation ces données relatives à la position et à la direction avec les informations concernant les caractéristiques de l'environnement dudit utilisateur, stockées dans la mémoire. Enfin, le dispositif de sortie d'informations fournit ces informations à l'utilisateur, ces informations étant liées à l'une des caractéristiques de l'environnement de cet utilisateur, située généralement dans la direction déterminée par ce dernier.
