  • Publication number: 20210174713
    Abstract: An information providing device includes a display unit configured to display information to a preset view area by emitting light, a detection unit, a first determination, a second determination unit, and a control unit configured to perform an operation control of the display unit. The display unit displays the information in a main display mode and a sub display mode having a less influence on a travelling of a nearby vehicle than the main display mode has. While the information is displayed in the main display mode, the control unit switches the main display mode to the sub display mode or stops an operation of the display unit when the first determination unit determines that the possibility of entry exceeds the threshold, or when the second determination unit determines that the nearby vehicle exists in the view area.
