  • Publication number: 20200041285
    Abstract: The determination device acquires a first distance information measured by a measurement unit and indicating a distance from a movable body to an object, and a second distance information estimated by an estimation unit and indicating the distance from the movable body to the object. Also, the determination device acquires own position accuracy information of the movable body. Then, the determination device determines presence or absence of deviation larger than a predetermined value between a position of the object in map information and the position of the object in real environment, based on a difference value of the distances indicated by the first distance information and the second distance information and the own position accuracy information.

  • Patent number: 10540896
    Abstract: An acquisition unit acquires a light path length rij corresponding to an emission direction of emitted light, which is surrounding information of a moving body obtained by using a laser radar mounted on the moving body, a traffic mirror information including a center position N of a traffic mirror on a map, and position information of the moving body on the map. Then, on the basis of the acquired traffic mirror information and the acquired position information of the moving body on the map, an extraction unit extracts a light path length acquired via the traffic mirror from the acquired light path length rij, and then calculates an object reflection position corresponding to the extracted light path length. This makes it possible to obtain surrounding information in a blind spot for a driver while increasing robustness with respect to the surrounding information, and thus advanced driving assistance can be implemented.

  • Patent number: 10520324
    Abstract: An enhanced map information processing unit 14 of a driving assistance device 1 acquires from a determination unit 13 information on surroundings of a vehicle which is needed to perform autonomous driving, and acquires from a server device 2 environment information on surroundings of a route on which autonomous driving is performed. On the basis of the acquired environment information, the enhanced map information processing unit 14 extracts, as an autonomous driving unsuitable location Pn, a location at which the accuracy of the acquirement of the sensor unit 12 is predicted not to satisfy a standard for acquiring the information on the surroundings of the vehicle needed to perform autonomous driving. An informing unit 18 alerts the extracted autonomous driving unsuitable location Pn to a user.

  • Patent number: 10497892
    Abstract: Each of a plurality of the light-emitting units (140) includes a first electrode (110), an organic layer (120), and a second electrode (130). The first electrode (110) is light-transmitting, and the second electrode (130) is light-reflective. The organic layer (120) is located between the first electrode (110) and the second electrode (130). The light-transmitting regions (104 and 106) are located between the plurality of light-emitting units (140). A sealing member (170) covers the plurality of light-emitting units (140) and the light-transmitting regions (104 and 106). The sealing member (170) is fixed directly or through an insulating layer (174) to at least one of a structure (for example, the second electrode 130) formed on a substrate (100), and the substrate (100). In addition, a haze value of the light-emitting device (10) is equal to or less than 2.0%, preferably equal to or less than 1.4%.
