Instead, they arc merely examples of apparatuses and methods consistent with aspects related to the invention as recited in the appended claims.

    [0045] The embodiments of the present disclosure that navigate for user with the navigation video. The navigation video is the video which get from the location shooting for the road. Every navigation video has the corresponding navigation parameters, at least including: navigation starting point and navigation ending point, and further including: a regional name, a road name, a season, a weather, an average driving speed and the like. The user queries the corresponding navigation video by entering the navigation parameters of the navigation request, and the navigation video is played on the terminal. With navigating by the real video, it will reduce the reaction time for maps and various simplify identification for the user during driving, and it will more sensitive for the road conditions and directions, so that improve the accuracy for navigation and also improve the user experience.

    [0046] Wherein the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point may be entered by the user, or GPS may locate the current position as the navigation starting point automatically. The navigation parameters bellowing may be entered by the user, or obtaining the navigation parameters by GPS, detecting automatically, the navigation parameters may include at least one of: regional name, road name, season, weather, average driving speed, driving distance.

    [0047] Fig. 1 is a flow diagram illustrating a method for navigating according to an exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig.1, the method for navigating is used to the terminal or the network, the method includes step S11-S13 as follow:

    in step S11, obtaining navigation request information;

    in step S12, determining a navigation video matching with the navigation request information, wherein the navigation video is the video obtained from the location shooting of the road;

    in step S13, navigating based on the navigation video.



    [0048] In the present embodiment, by navigating with the real video, it will reduce the reaction time for maps and various simplify identification for the user during driving, and with more sensitive for the road conditions and directions, it will navigate for the user more directly to avoid missing in complicated built environment or multi-intersections environment, so that improve the accuracy for navigation and also improve the user experience.

    [0049] Alternatively, the navigation request information includes navigation parameters of a navigation starting point and a navigation ending point, step S12 may be implement with three manners as follow:

    Manner 1



    [0050] Fig. 2 is a flow diagram illustrating a method for navigating according to another exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig. 2, step 12 includes:
    in step S21, obtaining navigation starting points and navigation ending points of the navigation videos;
    in step S22, determining a navigation video, both the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point of which are the same as those of the navigation request information as the navigation video matching with the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point.

    [0051] In an alternative solution, querying for the corresponding navigation video according the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point of the navigation request information that can compare it with the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point of the navigation video directly, so it will get the navigation video which the user want inquire accurately.

    Manner 2



    [0052] Fig. 3 is a flow diagram illustrating a method for navigating according to another exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig. 3, step 12 includes:

    in step S31, calculating a navigation route based on the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point;

    in step S32, querying for a navigation video comprising the navigation route;

    in step S33, cutting out a navigation video corresponding to the navigation route from the navigation video comprising the navigation route, and determining the navigation video corresponding to the navigation route as the navigation video matching with the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point.



    [0053] For example, the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point which the user inquired are A and B, the corresponding navigation route is AB. There is navigation video CD shot for the navigation route CD (the navigation starting point is C and the navigation ending point is D), and the navigation route AB is one section of the navigation route CD, so it can cut out the navigation video AB which is corresponding to the navigation route AB from the navigation video CD.

    [0054] Wherein, the navigation parameter which is corresponding to the navigation video CD include the road name which is corresponding to the navigation route AB or identification of place A and place B, and the driving direction between place A and place B is A to B in the navigation video CD. So it can cut out the navigation video AB which is corresponding to the navigation route AB from the navigation video CD according to the road name which is corresponding to the navigation route AB or identification of place A and place B.

    [0055] In an alternative solution, if the starting point which inquired is close to the ending point, it may have no navigation video entirely matching the user requirement, but there may be the navigation videos which include the navigation route, it can cut out the navigation video which is corresponding to the inquired route from these navigation video. So it will match the navigation video that is needed accurately for the user to improve the accuracy for navigation.

    Manner 3



    [0056] Fig. 4 is a flow diagram illustrating a method for navigating according to another exemplary embodiment, as shown in Fig. 4, step 12 includes:

    in step S41, calculating a navigation route based on the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point;

    in step S42, dividing the navigation route into at least two navigation sub-routes;

    in step S43, querying for the navigation videos corresponding to the navigation sub-routes respectively;

    in step S44, splicing the navigation videos corresponding to the navigation sub-routes to obtain the navigation video matching with the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point.



    [0057] In an alternative solution, if the starting point which inquired is far away from the ending point, it may have no navigation video entirely matching the user requirement, but there may be the navigation videos corresponding to the certain route between the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point rcspcctivcly. So it can splice these navigation videos to obtain the navigation video which the user queried. For example, the starting point and the ending point which the user queried are A and B, the corresponding navigation route is AB. Dividing the navigation route AB into three navigation sub-routes AE, EF, EB. The navigation video AE, video EF, video EB which are corresponding to the navigation sub-routes have been queried respectively, splicing the three navigation videos to obtain the navigation video AB corresponding to the navigation route AB.

    [0058] In an alternative solution, by splicing the navigation video which needed for the user, it will match the navigation video that is needed accurately for the user to improve the accuracy for navigation.

    [0059] In order to improve the accuracy for matching the navigation video, it can increase the terms of the parameters that entered, for example, entering regional name, road name and the like, the terminal may determine the parameters such as season and the like based on current date, and inquire the current weather parameter from the network, detect the current driving speed of the vehicle and so on. The more navigation parameters in the navigation request, the more accurate the navigation video which queried at last is.

    [0060] Fig. 5 is a flow diagram illustrating a method for navigating according to another exemplary embodiment, alternatively, the navigation request information further includes at least one of the following navigation parameters: a regional name, a road name, a season, a weather, an average driving speed, and a driving distance; in case that there are at least two navigation videos matching with the navigation starting point and the navigation ending point have been are obtained by querying, step S12 further includes:

    in step S51, obtaining the navigation parameters of the navigation videos;

    in step S52, calculating the matching degrees of the navigation parameters of the navigation request information with respect to the navigation parameters of the navigation videos;

    in step S53, determining a navigation video whose matching degree is the largest as the navigation video matching with the navigation request information, or determining navigation videos whose matching degrees are larger than a preset threshold as navigation videos matching with the navigation request information, or determining a predetermined number of navigation videos whose matching degrees arc relatively high as navigation videos matching with the navigation request information.



    [0061] For example, there are three navigation videos matching with the navigation starting point A and the navigation ending point B, they are Video, Video2, and Video3 respectively.

    [0062] The navigation request information further includes:

    Season-summer;

    Weather-rainy

    Average driving speed-40km/h

    Road name-Road A



    [0063] The navigation parameters of Video 1,Video2, and Video3 as shown in Table 1:
    Table 1
     SeasonWeatherAverage driving speed (km/h)Road nameThe matching degree with the navigation parameters of the navigation request information
    Video 1 summer rainy 30 RoadA 75%
    Video 2 spring sunny 60 RoadA 25%
    Video 3 summer sunny 40 RoadB 50%


    [0064] From Table 1, the matching degree for Video 1 and the navigation parameters of the navigation request information is highest, determining Video 1 as the navigation video which the user has queried. And it may also predetermine that pushing the navigation video which the matching degree is over 50%, or the navigation videos which the matching degree are top2 to the user and let the user select which navigation video to be used.

    [0065] Since the effects of shooting video is closely related to the factors such as season, weather, driving speed and the like. For example, when shooting the video at 6:00 PM, if shooting in summer, the effects is more clear due to the day is still bright, if shooting in winter, only the building with lighting or road markings can be shot clearly due to the day is already dark. Similarly, the effects of video which shot in weather such as rainy, snowy, fog and the like have much difference with the video which shot in sunny day. Moreover, since there may be difference in the roads between the same staring point and ending point, so the navigation video which has been shot is also different. In order to match the navigation video more accurate for the user, it need to consider the navigation parameters as many as possible.

    [0066] In an alternative solution, by filtering the queried navigation videos with the parameters, it will provide more accurate navigation video whose matching degree is the largest which needed for the user, to improve the accuracy for navigation and the user experience.

    [0067] The method for navigating is provided in embodiments of the present disclosure, the executive bodies for practicing the method are server for navigating and terminal with navigate function. The method of the present disclosure may either be applied to the server on network or to the terminal. The terminal of the present embodiment may be any one of the devices with the function of playing video, such as mobile phone, computer, digital broadcasting terminal, message transceiver device, game console, tablet device, personal digital assistant and the like.

    [0068] The present embodiment arrange two implementations for navigating according to the different executive bodies, as follow:

    in step S62, the server determines a navigation video matching with the navigation request information;

    in step S63, the server sends the navigation video to the terminal, and the terminal plays the navigation video for the user to navigate.



    [0070] In an alternative solution, if the operation of matching the navigation video based on the navigation request information is finished by the server on the network, the server need to push the navigation video which has been matched to the terminal which used to request. So it can store the navigation video data without plenty of storage space but consume certain data traffic.
