  • Publication number: 20220321447
    Abstract: Provided are a reliability estimation system and a reliability estimation method capable of reducing a calculation amount of a reliability of a plurality of networks between terminals in communication between the terminals over the plurality of networks. The reliability estimation system according to the present invention calculates, for each network, a contraction reliability Rx, a contraction reliability Rx? when nodes are contracted, and a contraction reliability RB? between the networks including the terminals, and a true value of the reliability between the terminals over the plurality of networks is between a product P1 (=RB? Rx) and a product P2 (=RB? Rx?). Instead of calculating the true value of the reliability, only an upper limit and a lower limit are calculated, and thus, it is possible to significantly low additional remark the calculation amount.

  • Patent number: 11440549
    Abstract: An automated lane change control detects a preceding vehicle that is traveling in a same travel lane as a host vehicle, determines whether a predetermined condition is satisfied between the host vehicle and the preceding vehicle, and executes an automated lane change in the host vehicle after a first predetermined time has elapsed from determining that the predetermined condition is satisfied. The automated lane change of the host vehicle is executed after a first predetermined time has elapsed after determining that the predetermined condition has been satisfied. A second predetermined time is set that is longer than the first predetermined time as a time for prohibiting the automated lane change upon assessing the presents of a previous driver lane change. The automated lane change is prohibited in an interval that starts when a prohibiting condition is satisfied and ends when the second predetermined time elapses.
