  • Patent number: 10486741
    Abstract: A driving support apparatus includes an other vehicle detector, an other vehicle information acquisition unit, a proximity detector, a proximity controller and a setting unit. The other vehicle detector detects an other vehicle travelling on the second lane. The other vehicle information acquisition unit acquires information containing the size of the other vehicle. The proximity detector outputs a proximity signal when it is detected that the other vehicle is located in the detection range of set on the second lane at a predetermined detection distance from the own vehicle. The proximity controller activates a proximity control unit when detecting that a turn signal lever is operated while the proximity signal is being output. The setting unit increases the detection distance according to the size of the other vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9528461
    Abstract: To prevent a decrease in detection accuracy of an obstacle that occurs when an obstacle detection distance of an infrared beam at the center is set longer than an infrared beam of at least one of the left or the right, an obstacle detection device for a vehicle which detects an obstacle in front includes an effective-range control part 19 which controls the maximum effective distance of obstacle detection. The effective-range control part 19 extends the maximum effective distance of the second emitting-and-receiving parts 11b, 11c disposed on at least one of the left or the right from an initial value L1 to an extended value L2, when the first emitting-and-receiving part 11a at the center detects an obstacle 5.
