  • Publication number: 20210302172
    Abstract: A parking lot management device which manages a parking lot for accommodating a vehicle, includes a route generation unit which generates a traveling route for guiding the vehicle to a target position, and a processor which guides the vehicle to the target position based on the generated traveling route. The route generation unit generates a first traveling route and a second traveling route whose traveling direction or traveling method is different from that of the first traveling route. The processor selects the first traveling route or the second traveling route based on a traveling environment from a current position of the vehicle to the target position and guides the vehicle to the target position based on the selected traveling route.
