  • Publication number: 20240034315
    Abstract: A surrounding environment around a vehicle is recognized and surrounding environment information is acquired. Traveling control is performed on the vehicle based on the acquired surrounding environment information. When an obstacle expected to hinder traveling of the vehicle is recognized ahead of the vehicle and other vehicles traveling ahead of the vehicle are recognized in an adjacent lane adjacent to a traveling lane where the vehicle is traveling, a movement amount of the obstacle moved due to an effect of a first other vehicle among the other vehicles that travels at a position near the obstacle is detected. An estimated movement amount of the obstacle moved due to an effect of a second other vehicle among the other vehicles that follows the first other vehicle is calculated based on the detected movement amount. The traveling control is performed on the vehicle based on the estimated movement amount.
