|Title:||INFORMATION PROCESSING DEVICE AND CONGESTION DISPLAY METHOD|
An information processing device according to an embodiment of the present invention is provided with a specification unit and a display control unit. On the basis of the speeds and traveling directions of vehicles running in a predetermined area, the specification unit calculates, with respect to each of a plurality of direction candidates, a congestion direction evaluation value comprising an inner product of the velocity vectors of vehicles which coincide with the direction candidates, an average speed of the vehicles the traveling directions of which coincide with the direction candidates, a vehicle density in the travelling directions which coincide with the direction candidates, or a traffic amount of the vehicles the travelling directions of which coincide with the direction candidates, and, on the basis of the calculated congestion direction evaluation value, specifies a direction candidate that represents the travelling directions of the vehicles in congestion that has occurred in the predetermined area, as a congestion direction. The display control unit displays a map or a route map corresponding to the predetermined area on a display unit with direction information that enables the congestion direction to be recognized.
