  • Patent number: 9262796
    Abstract: In an agent function, when a character image in motion is displayed, a number of the character images to be displayed is changed, depending on whether or not a speech utterance of a user is being received. In other words, during receipt the speech utterance of the user, the communication apparatus sends the character images to the vehicle-mounted apparatus at a first reduced frequency. Thus, even when a process of receiving the speech utterance and a process of displaying the character images are concurrently performed, the vehicle-mounted apparatus is not overloaded with the processes. Therefore, a stopping state of a process caused by overload of the vehicle-mounted apparatus with processes can be prevented and stoppage of the motion of the character image can also be prevented even during the receipt of the speech utterance.

  • Patent number: 7895294
    Abstract: A multimedia system includes a master unit terminal and slave unit terminals. The master unit terminal functions as an interface for communications with an external server, in which status a program updating process is executed between the server and the slave unit terminal. In the multimedia system, property information on the slave unit terminal is acquired when the master unit terminal is connected to the slave unit terminal on a communication-enabled basis, an update program for the slave unit terminal is acquired from the server via the master unit terminal on the basis of the property information, and thereafter the updating process is executed. This scheme in the multimedia system enables troublesomeness felt by a user to be reduced to the greatest possible degree and security for updating the program of the unit terminal to be guaranteed.
