(FR) AMÉLIORATIONS RELATIVES À UN APPAREIL DE NAVIGATION UTILISÉ À BORD D'UN VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a technique for enabling collection and/or refinement of digital map information for aiding navigation route planning for vehicles larger than ordinary cars, such as goods-vehicles, buses, and car+caravan combinations. A profile of a vehicle's characteristics, and one or more routes followed, are logged by a navigation device (200), and fed-back to a server (150) that supports the navigation device with map data updates. At the server, or an alternative processing centre, the fed-back data from plural navigation devices is analysed (400-404) to observe statistically the patterns of roads used by these vehicles, and to categorise these by the type of vehicle.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une technique permettant de collecter et/ou de préciser des informations cartographiques numériques destinées à une assistance à une planification de chemin de navigation pour des véhicules plus gros que des voitures ordinaires, tels que des camions de marchandises, des bus, et des combinaisons voiture plus caravane. Un profil des caractéristiques d'un véhicule, et un ou plusieurs chemins suivis, sont consignés par un dispositif de navigation (200), et renvoyés à un serveur (150) qui prend en charge le dispositif de navigation avec des mises à jour de données cartographiques. Au niveau du serveur, ou d'un centre de traitement auxiliaire, les données renvoyées à partir de plusieurs dispositifs de navigation sont analysées (400-404) pour observer statistiquement les types de chemins utilisés par ces véhicules, et pour les catégoriser selon le type de véhicule.
