  • Patent number: 11097734
    Abstract: A vehicle control device includes: an operation detection unit that detects an operation input of a user for an operation input unit; a speed setting unit that sets travel speed of a host vehicle on the basis of the operation input that is detected by the operation detection unit; and a lane change control unit that controls lane change.

  • Patent number: 10467047
    Abstract: A server system includes an origin server acting as a source of deployment and at least one target server acting as a destination of deployment. The origin server further includes a virtual machine implementing an execution-facilitating process for facilitating the target server to deploy a predetermined program in an executable condition, and a migration part configured to migrate the virtual machine to the target server. After migration of the virtual machine from the origin server to the target server, the virtual machine carries out an execution-facilitating process for facilitating the origin server to deploy a predetermined program in an executable condition at least one time. This eliminates the necessity of providing a specific server dedicated to the execution-facilitating process, thus reducing the number of servers subjected to execution-facilitating processes.
