Title (EN) NAVIGATION OR MAPPING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE NAVIGATION OU DE CARTOGRAPHIE
Abstract:
(EN) A navigation or mapping system comprises a display device (240) and a processing resource (210, 490) arranged to process map data, traffic data and location data representative of the location of a vehicle, to produce an output representative of a traffic animation sequence, wherein the traffic animation sequence comprises a traffic indicator (530) on a map, the traffic indicator (530) is representative of traffic and the traffic indicator (530) varies to represent the variation of traffic between a start time and an end time, the processing resource is configured to vary at least one feature of the animation sequence in dependence upon the variation of the location of the vehicle between the start time and the end time, and the display device is responsive to the output from the processing resource to display the traffic animation sequence.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de navigation ou de cartographie qui comporte un dispositif d'affichage (240) et une ressource de traitement (210, 490) agencée pour traiter des données de carte, des données de circulation et des données de localisation représentatives de la localisation d'un véhicule, afin de produire une sortie représentative d'une séquence d'animation de circulation, la séquence d'animation de circulation comportant un indicateur de circulation (530) sur une carte, l'indicateur de circulation (530) étant représentatif de la circulation et variant pour représenter la variation de la circulation entre une heure de départ et une heure de fin, la ressource de traitement étant configurée pour faire varier au moins une caractéristique de la séquence d'animation en fonction de la variation de la localisation du véhicule entre l'heure de départ et l'heure de fin, et le dispositif d'affichage étant sensible à la sortie provenant de la ressource de traitement pour afficher la séquence d'animation de circulation.
