  • Publication number: 20200148214
    Abstract: A travel control apparatus is provided. The travel control apparatus acquires driver abnormality information indicative of an abnormality of a driver of a vehicle, makes a determination that the driver is in a driving difficulty state based at least on the driver abnormality information, and activates a lane departure prevention function and a cruise control function of the vehicle at substantially the same time during a time period between when the driver abnormality information is acquired and when the driving difficulty state is determined. Together with activating the lane departure prevention function and the cruise control function, the travel control apparatus outputs notification request information to a human machine interface controller controlling a notification device which issues a notification to a passenger of the vehicle. The notification request information causes the notification indicative of activation of the lane departure prevention function and the cruise control function to be issued.

  • Publication number: 20190146217
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a head-up display device capable of providing countermeasures against solar light without using a shutter or a reflective polarizer film. A case includes a first shielding part and a second shielding part that sandwich optical paths between a first mirror and a second mirror and extend to the vicinity of a cross point where the optical paths intersect. The tip end of the first shielding part is located in front of the tip end of the second shielding part. A display is arranged below the second shielding part and in front of a line that connects the tip end of the first shielding part and the tip end of the second shielding part. The first and second shielding parts block external light entering from above an opening and block external light that may enter the case and travel toward the first mirror after reflecting from the second mirror.

  • Patent number: 10019853
    Abstract: The fuel replenishment amount to a vehicle at each time is collected by a support server 10 through a smartphone 20. Then, information corresponding to calculation results such as the fuel remaining amount based on the information collected by the support server 10 is transmitted to a user through the smartphone 20. Thus, even when a terminal for transmitting the fuel replenishment amount to the smartphone 20 is not installed at a fuel supply station, information meaningful to the user in making a driving plan for the vehicle, such as the fuel remaining amount of the vehicle, can be provided to the user through this smartphone 20 at an appropriate timing.
