  • Patent number: 9410818
    Abstract: According to a navigation device of the invention, at the time of performing turning guidance for a user who drives a vehicle, it is possible to perform the guidance in a way easy-to-understand for the user. Namely, a presentation of a preceding vehicle is made using an actual image or a graphic image of a vehicle that is the same as the actually seen vehicle, so that the user who drives the vehicle in traveling will understand that he/she only has to follow the preceding vehicle actually traveling ahead. This results in such route guidance that does not cause misunderstanding of a turning point and is very easy-to-understand.

  • Patent number: 9146130
    Abstract: According to an in-vehicle information device or a navigation device of the invention, each of a plurality of terminals in a vehicle is configured to cause the terminal itself to operate in one of modes including: “an independent operation mode” in which the terminal itself is operated independently; “a participatory cooperative operation mode” in which the terminal directly participates in an operation of the other terminal; and “a transitional cooperative operation mode” in which the terminal takes over information of the other terminal and performs an operation on the information followed by reflecting or not reflecting the information after that operation to the other terminal as information source. Accordingly, it is possible to efficiently transmit or reflect an intention of each of plural occupants in the vehicle to the other occupant by combining independent operations and cooperative operations by the plurality of terminals.

  • Patent number: 8638658
    Abstract: A data transmission device is provided including a monitoring unit 2 for monitoring a transmission time period of data and predicting a transmission timing with which the above-mentioned data will be transmitted next time from the transmission time period. The data transmission device delays the transmission timing of data in the data transmission device when the transmission timing of the data in the data transmission device is close to a transmission timing predicted by the monitoring unit 2, whereas commands a network I/F unit 1 to transmit the data in the data transmission device when the transmission timing of the data in the data transmission device is not close to the predicted transmission timing.
