  • Publication number: 20210323553
    Abstract: Provided is an in-vehicle system in which an own vehicle does not decelerate according to a preceding vehicle even if the preceding vehicle changes lanes to the right turn lane or the left turn lane and decelerates after own vehicle entering an intersection area. A CPU 107 (first control unit) controls the own vehicle to follow the preceding vehicle. An image processing circuit 106 (detection unit) detects a lane marking of the traveling lane. The CPU 107 (determination unit) determines whether an own vehicle 201 has entered the intersection area. When the detection of one of the right and left lane markings of the traveling lane is interrupted (S20: YES) after the own vehicle 201 has entered the intersection area (S15: YES), the CPU 107 (second control unit) releases ACC that causes the own vehicle 201 to follow the preceding vehicle 202.
