[0034] 这样的订阅者信息可以是年龄、性别、其生活方式的潜在职业、财产的任一种以及其他个人细节,例如假期倾向。 [0034] Such subscriber information may be the age, sex, occupation potential, as well as any other personal details of the property of their lifestyle, such as vacation tendency. 因此这样的订阅者信息可以由消息服务器20用于向用户提供相关信息。 So this subscriber information from the message server 20 may be used to provide relevant information to the user. 例如,消息服务器20可以具有针对消息服务器20上所存储消息的过滤标准。 For example, the message server 20 may have for the message server 20 stores the message filter criteria. 这些过滤标准可以与例如订阅者信息匹配,可以基于匹配结果选择适当的消息。 These filters can be used with standard information such as subscriber match, you can select the appropriate message based on the match result. 可以调整消息服务器20,使得仅向相应订阅者发送从那些消息导出的选定消息或信息。 You can adjust the message server 20, so that the selected message or information sent to the appropriate subscribers only derived from those messages.

[0035] 还提供了一种网络适配器25,用于在消息服务器20和网络18之间建立接口。 [0035] Also provided is a network adapter 25 for establishing an interface between the message server 20 and the network 18. 如下文将更详细描述的,适配器25可以在因特网28和计算机终端32 (例如PC、智能机或利用通信链路30、32连接的任何其他有网络功能的装置)之间提供接口。 As will be described in greater detail, the adapter 25 may be on the Internet 28 and 32 computer terminals (eg PC, intelligent machines, or using any other web-enabled device connected to the communication link 30, 32) provides an interface between. 可以由客户端预定或由客户端基本实时地提供数据库22上存储的内容信息(例如消息)。 It can be scheduled by the client or provide basic database 22 stored content information (such as news) in real-time by the client. 亦即,可以根据车辆4的速度通过网络12、18向车辆4的用户发送内容信息。 That is, the content information may be sent to the user of the vehicle 4 based on the speed of the vehicle 4 via the network 12, 18. 然而,在两种情况下,都可以利用用户接口24向消息服务器20输入信息,或者可以利用存在于计算机终端32上的接口(未示出)提供信息。 However, in both cases, you can use the user interface 24 20 input information to the message server, or you can use the computer terminal 32 exists on an interface (not shown) to provide information. 亦即,计算机终端32可以远离消息服务器20以提供信息系统2的更大灵活性。 That is, the computer terminal 32 may stay away from the message server 20 in order to provide greater flexibility in information systems 2. 也可以考虑过滤标准。 Filter criteria may also be considered.

[0036] 图2示出了方框图,示出了与车辆接口连接的客户端/服务器与根据本发明向车辆用户提供的信息之间的关系。 [0036] FIG. 2 shows a block diagram showing the relationship of the present invention to provide a vehicle user information between the client and the vehicle interface / server and needed. 在本图中,用于接收内容信息的用户接口24可以与消息服务器20分开。 In this figure, a user interface for receiving content information 24 and the message server 20 may be separated. 亦即,用户接口可以,且如前所述,形成通过网络12、18、30、31连接的远程计算机的部分。 That is, the user interface can be, and as described previously, connected via a network 12,18,30,31 forming part of the remote computer. 如上所述,计算机终端32可以是PC、智能手机或任何其他有网络功能的装置。 As described above, the computer terminal 32 may be a PC, smartphone or any other web-enabled devices.

[0037] 在这种配置中,几个客户端可以连接到消息服务器20以允许几种不同类型且来自几种不同供应商的消息通知车辆用户。 [0037] In this configuration, several clients can connect to the message server 20 to allow several different types from several different vendors and informs user of the vehicle. 例如,一个消息供应商可能与快速底脚插(fastfoot outlet)座同义,而另一个消息供应商可能与提供体育规定同义。 For example, a news vendor might fast foot insert (fastfoot outlet) seat synonymous, but another message provider may offer sports and regulations are synonymous. 然而,在两个范例中,想到车辆用户能够选择其希望接收与广告相关联的一般消息还是接收基于预选标准的消息,例如非广告,例如,与体育规定相关的消息。 However, in the two examples, think of the vehicle user can select general messages they wish to receive advertising associated with or receive messages based on pre-selected criteria, such as non-advertising, for example, news and sports-related provisions.

[0038] 车辆用户接收的消息类型和内容取决于车辆速度。 [0038] vehicle user receives a message type and content depends on vehicle speed. 亦即,如果车辆正在以接近道路速度限制的速度行驶,那么出于驾驶员的安全考虑,利用显示器6显示的消息非常有限且受到系统限制。 That is, if the vehicle is close to the road speed limit speed, then the driver for safety reasons, the use of the Message Display 6 shows very limited and subject to system limits. 例如,可以在显示器6上显示已经向用户电子邮件帐户中接收到电子邮件的通知消息。 For example, you can display on the display 6 has received the notification e-mail message to the user e-mail accounts. 相反,如果判定车辆是静止的,利用以上范例,不仅接收电子邮件的通知,而且还在显示器6上显示电子邮件的内容。 On the contrary, if it is determined the vehicle is stationary, using the above example, not only to receive notification e-mails, but also monitor e-mail content on the display 6.

[0039] 类似地,可以通知车辆用户其社交媒体账户中有进入条目。 [0039] Similarly, you can notify the user of the vehicle in their social media accounts into the entry. 同样根据车辆的速度,显示的消息可以是与账户相关的图示符号(图标)或消息条目自身。 Graphic symbols (icons) Also according to the speed of the vehicle, the message display may be associated with the account or the message entry itself. 然而,可以对显示器6进行定向,使得仅消息的目标用户能够看到显示的消息。 However, the orientation of the display 6, so that the target user messages can only see the message displayed.

[0040] 然而此外,可以将消息分类为紧急交通安全信息并利用交通监测消息供应器提供。 [0040] In addition, however, the message can be classified as emergency traffic safety information and use traffic monitoring messages supply available. 在这种情况下,可以通知车辆4的用户考虑到远在前面的交通事故而减小其车辆速度。 In this case, you can notify the user of the vehicle 4 is considered to far in front of the traffic accident and reduce its vehicle speed. 亦即,由交通监测供应商提供的这种信息可以具有远程站,例如利用并通过因特网28连接到消息服务器20的计算机终端32。 That is, the information provided by the traffic monitoring station remote vendor may have, for example, and the use of a computer terminal to connect to the message server 32 through the Internet 20 28. 任选地,任何供应商都可以通过另一种通信手段,例如电子邮件,向消息服务器20发送其消息。 Optionally, any vendor can be an alternative means of communication, such as e-mail, send their messages to the message server 20.

[0041] 在另一个范例中,交通监测消息供应商可以利用几个摄像机(未示出)来监测道路网络上的交通流量。 [0041] In another example, traffic monitoring news providers can use several cameras (not shown) to monitor the traffic flow on the road network. 在这个特定的范例中,可以通过在网络18和12上将交通监测摄像机的输出作为快照或短视频流来重新广播,向车辆用户通知即将来临的交通延迟。 In this particular example, through the network 18 and the output will be 12 traffic monitoring cameras as snapshots or short video stream to re-broadcast, notify the upcoming traffic delays to the vehicle users. 此外,可以仅在车辆正以预定速度运动时才接收这样的快照图像。 In addition, when the vehicle is in motion only receive such a predetermined speed snapshot image. 类似地,例如,如果车辆静止或接近静止,可以发送这样的短视频流。 Similarly, for example, if the vehicle is stationary or nearly stationary, you can send this short video stream. 亦即,交通监测消息供应商可以选择向用户发送短交通公告,从而可以观看车队长度,并可选地利用车辆音频系统收听音频报告。 That is, the traffic monitoring news vendor can choose to send a short announcement to the user traffic, which can watch the team length, and optionally use a vehicle audio system to listen to an audio report.

[0042] 类似于图2,图3示出了方框图,示出了客户端/服务器接口与各种信息源之间的关系。 [0042] similar to Figure 2, Figure 3 shows a block diagram illustrating the relationship between the client / server interfaces with a variety of information sources. 然而,在本图中,不同的消息供应商能够与订阅者交互。 However, in this figure, a different message providers to interact with subscribers. 亦即,消息可以是公共消息38、私人消息39和/或商业消息40。 That is, the message may be a common message 38, a private message 39 and / or commercial messages 40. 对于公共消息38而言,例如设想,沿全球定位卫星10确定的已知路线行驶的车辆可能通过几个景区(points of interests)。 For the common message 38, for example envisaged, along a known route 10 global positioning satellites to determine the vehicle may travel through several scenic spots (points of interests). 在这种配置中,旅游板(board)可以向车辆用户发送消息,表示给定其当前速度,景区可能很近了。 In this configuration, the tourism board (board) can send a message to the user of the vehicle, indicating given its current speed, the resort may close.

[0043] 当然,可以仅仅基于消息服务器20上存储的订阅者信息向订阅者(或用户)标记出这样的景区。 [0043] Of course, you can only subscribe to those based on the information stored on message server 20 to subscribers (or users) to mark this area. 例如,订阅者可能对历史建筑学感兴趣,景区可能是城堡。 For example, the subscriber may be interested in the history of architecture, the resort is probably the castle. 尽管如此,根据车辆的速度,可以在显示器6上显示消息,例如代表城堡的图标。 Nevertheless, according to the speed of the vehicle, the message can be displayed on the display 6, for example, representatives of the castle icon. 如果消息服务器然后判定车辆已停止,那么可以显示与景区相关的更多信息。 If the message server then determines that the vehicle is stopped, it can display more information and resort-related. 此外,根据本发明的信息系统2然后可以基于当前位置确定通往景区的最佳路线,并可选地与地图一起显示这种信息。 Additionally, and optionally display this information together with the map information system according to the present invention will then be based on the current position determining the best route leading to scenic.

[0044] 然而类似地,可以在车辆4的显示器6上显示私人消息39。 [0044] Similarly, however, can be displayed on the vehicle display 6 4 39 private messages. 在这样的配置中,用户可能具有当前可用社交媒体网络,例如Facebook™、Twitter™等的订阅账户。 In such a configuration, the user may have the currently available social media networks such as Facebook ™, Twitter ™, etc. subscription account.

[0045] 因此,可以通过在车辆4的显示器6上显示消息图标来向车辆用户通知与这种网络相关联的任何新内容。 [0045] Thus, by the message icon to notify any new content associated with such a network user to the vehicle on the vehicle display 6 4 display. 然而,为了不干扰车辆的安全和操作,消息服务器20确定车辆正在行驶的速度,从而显示完整消息,或者,如果车辆不是静止的,仅在车辆4的显示器6上显示代表社交媒体账户的图标。 However, in order not to interfere with the safety and operation of the vehicle, the message server 20 determines the speed of the vehicle is traveling, to display the complete message, or, if the vehicle is not stationary, display icons representing social media accounts only display 6 on the vehicle 4.

[0046] 如前所述,板载计算机15的收发器可以由车辆4的电源供电或者可以由其自己的电源供电。 [0046] As mentioned above, the onboard computer transceiver 15 may be powered by the vehicle 4 or can by its own power supply. 亦即,在车辆不静止时,在事件期间,可以由车辆电源为收发器供电,在车辆静止时,可以由其自己的电源供电,这样车辆4的电源就不会放电。 That is, when the vehicle is not stationary during the event, you can by a vehicle power supply for the transceiver power when the vehicle is stationary, can by its own power supply, the power supply so that the vehicle 4 will not be discharged. 优选地,通过网络12、18向消息服务器20连续地或以预定间隔发送车辆速度。 Preferably, 12, 18 through the network 20 to the message server continuously or at predetermined intervals to send the vehicle speed. 亦即,向消息服务器20连续发送速度数据会提出处理大量数据流量的要求,想到的优选方式是,应请求或以预定频率向消息服务器20发送速度数据。 That is, the message server for 20 consecutive data transmission rate will move large amounts of data traffic demands, the preferred way is to think, at the request or with a predetermined frequency to the message server 20 transmits velocity data. 这样的频率可以基于几个变量,例如车辆的平均速度、距目的地的距离和/或用户的需求设置。 Such a frequency can be based on several variables, such as the average speed of the vehicle, the distance and / or the user needs to set the destination distance.

[0047] 如本图中进一步示出并简要论述的,显示器6上显示的消息内容可能是商业性质的。 [0047] As further illustrated in FIG briefly discussed the contents of the message on the display 6 may be commercial in nature. 例如,用户可以选择向消息服务器20供应详细描述其优选饮食习惯的订阅者信息,并可以进一步选择供应诸如快餐店选择的信息。 For example, a user may choose to describe their preferred diet of subscriber information to the message server 20 supply detailed and can supply further options such as fast food restaurants selected information. 亦即,这样的快餐门店因此可以在这种车辆在快餐门店附近时在车辆4的显示器6上提供目标广告。 That is, such a fast-food stores can be such a vehicle in the vicinity of fast-food outlets provide targeted ads on the display vehicle 4 6.

[0048] 具体而言,且如前所述,在车辆4运动的同时可以限制车辆4显示器6上显示的广告内容长度,但在车辆停止时仍然可以提供更多详细信息,例如当前卖品、折扣等。 [0048] More specifically, and as described previously, while the movement of the vehicle 4 may limit the length of the advertising content displayed on the vehicle display 6 4, but when the vehicle stops still can provide more detailed information, such as the current sale, discounts. 任选地,广告快餐门店可以选择利用“智能电话”向用户发送独立的通信,这种通信任选地是在有限时段之内履行的折扣券。 Optionally, the advertising of fast food outlets can choose to use "smart phones" to separate communication to the user, such communication is optionally within a limited period of performance of discount coupons. 在另一个范例中,用户可以选择向消息服务器20提供例如汽车保险和家庭保险等展期日期,使得保险机构可以为车辆4的显示器发送及时提醒,指出需要继续付费。 In another example, a user may choose to provide the message server 20 such as car insurance and home insurance renewal date, so that insurance agencies can monitor a timely reminder to send the vehicle 4, pointed to the need to continue to pay.

[0049] 可选地,利用“智能手机”替代了平视显示器,智能手机可以利用内置的GPS接收机确定车辆速度。 [0049] Alternatively, the use of "smart phone" instead of the HUD, smart phones can use the built-in GPS receiver to determine the vehicle speed. 在这个具体实施例中,预计智能手机会附着于例如车辆的风挡上,更具体而言,布置于用户视场中,以免妨碍车辆安全。 In this particular embodiment, the smart phone is expected to be attached to the windshield of the vehicle, for example, and more specifically, arranged in the user field of view, so as not to interfere with the safety of vehicles.

[0050] 图4示出了流程图,提供了根据本发明的方法步骤。 [0050] FIG. 4 shows a flow diagram provides the steps according to the method of the present invention. 在第一步51中,由客户端经由用户接口输入数据消息。 In the first step 51, by the client via the user interface input data message. 用户接口可以在消息服务器20上,或者,可选地为例如计算机、智能手机或任何其他有网络功能的装置的处理器件。 The user interface can be on the message server 20, or, alternatively, for example, a computer, smartphone or any other network processor member function device. 在第二步骤52中,在向车辆发送之前,在消息服务器20上存储、整理、优先化数据消息。 In a second step 52, before sending to the vehicle in storage on 20 message server, sorting, prioritizing data messages. 在第三步53中,消息服务器20确定车辆速度并基于取决于速度的协议来选择可以发送的数据消息。 In the third step 53, the message server 20 determines the vehicle speed based on the speed of the protocol to select the data message can be sent. 亦即,如果车辆是静止的,那么消息内容比车辆非静止时更大。 That is, if the vehicle is stationary, then the message content is greater than when the vehicle is non-stationary. 接下来在第四步54中,消息服务器20通过网络18、20发送数据消息,由车辆4中的无线收发器接收。 Next, in a fourth step 54, the message server 20 transmits data messages via the network 18, 20, is received by the vehicle 4 in a wireless transceiver. 在最后一步55中,在车辆4的显示器6上显示消息,从消息服务器20向消息发起人发送成功确认消息。 In the final step 55, display a message on the vehicle display 6 4 successful confirmation message from the message server 20 sends the message originator.
