Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments provide techniques, including systems and methods, for locating and navigating to the location of a requestor based on proximity between a requestor device and a provider device. For example, embodiments display proximity indicators to allow a provider to quickly, easily, and safely locate a requestor upon arrival near a request location. Further, in some embodiments, graphics associated with a proximity vector may be presented on a provider communication device to clearly display the navigation directions to the provider so that the provider may easily find their matched requestor without requiring additional communication between the provider and the requestor. Additionally, embodiments provide efficient navigation to riders by limiting display of proximity indicators for navigation until the provider is within a threshold distance to the request location to conserve system resources and communication between an on-demand matching system and the provider computing device.

Selon des modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des techniques, y compris des systèmes et des procédés, pour localiser et naviguer vers l'emplacement d'un demandeur sur la base d'une proximité entre un dispositif demandeur et un dispositif fournisseur. Par exemple, des modes de réalisation affichent des indicateurs de proximité pour permettre à un fournisseur de localiser rapidement, facilement et en toute sécurité un demandeur lors de l'arrivée à proximité d'un emplacement de demande. En outre, dans certains modes de réalisation, des graphiques associés à un vecteur de proximité peuvent être présentés sur un dispositif de communication fournisseur pour afficher clairement les directions de navigation au fournisseur de telle sorte que le fournisseur peut facilement trouver leur demandeur mis en correspondance sans nécessiter une communication supplémentaire entre le fournisseur et le demandeur. De plus, des modes de réalisation fournissent une navigation efficace aux cyclistes en limitant l'affichage d'indicateurs de proximité pour la navigation jusqu'à ce que le fournisseur soit dans une distance seuil par rapport à l'emplacement de demande pour économiser des ressources système et une communication entre un système de mise en correspondance à la demande et le dispositif informatique fournisseur.
