  • Patent number: 11358599
    Abstract: A first specifying unit specifies a first possible space, for which a lane change of a vehicle is possible, from an inter-vehicle distance between a first preceding other vehicle and the vehicle, a speed of the first preceding other vehicle, and a speed of the vehicle. A second specifying unit specifies a second possible space, for which the lane change of the vehicle is possible, from an inter-vehicle distance between a second preceding other vehicle and a following other vehicle, a speed of the second preceding other vehicle, and a speed of the following other vehicle. A judgment unit judges, based on the first possible space and the second possible space, whether the lane change of the vehicle is possible.

  • Publication number: 20210284142
    Abstract: The present invention provides a control device including a recognizing unit that recognizes another vehicle present in an adjacent lane adjacent to a travel lane in which a self-vehicle travels, a determining unit that, on the basis of behavior of the other vehicle recognized by the recognizing unit and a determination standard set with respect to the behavior, determines whether or not the other vehicle will change lanes into the travel lane of the self-vehicle, and a controller that, in accordance with a result of the determination by the determining unit as to whether or not the other vehicle will change lanes, controls travel of the self-vehicle, wherein the determining unit changes the determination standard in accordance with a distance between the self-vehicle and the other vehicle in a travel direction of the self-vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20210284163
    Abstract: A vehicle control apparatus for controlling traveling of a vehicle comprises an acquisition unit configured to acquire information around the vehicle, and a control unit configured to control a lane change of the vehicle in accordance with a guidance route. If it is determined, based on the information acquired by the acquisition unit, that a bus stop exists near a point where the lane change is scheduled to be made, the control unit controls the vehicle to complete the lane change before the bus stop.

  • Publication number: 20210261132
    Abstract: A travel control apparatus that controls travel of a vehicle, comprises: a recognition unit configured to recognize external environment of the vehicle; and a travel control unit configured to control travel of the vehicle based on a result of recognition by the recognition unit. When the vehicle proceeds, at an intersection, to an intersecting traffic lane that intersects a traffic lane in which the vehicle travels, if the intersection is an intersection that satisfies a condition, the travel control unit controls the travel of the vehicle by a different travel control from a travel control for causing the vehicle to proceed through an intersection that does not satisfy the condition.

  • Publication number: 20210245753
    Abstract: There is provided a travel control apparatus. A control unit controls a position of the self-vehicle in a width direction so as to ensure a first predetermined interval between the self-vehicle and the other vehicle and to ensure a second predetermined interval between the self-vehicle and the boundary of the first lane. In a case in which both the first predetermined interval and the second predetermined interval cannot be ensured, the control unit controls the position of the self-vehicle in the width direction to preferentially ensure the first predetermined interval when the other vehicle has crossed a first boundary between the first lane and the second lane and to preferentially ensure the second predetermined interval when the other vehicle has not crossed the first boundary.

  • Publication number: 20210248391
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, a surroundings recognition device includes an acquirer configured to acquire first road information including a road boundary near a host vehicle from map information on the basis of position information of the host vehicle, a recognizer configured to recognize a road boundary near the host vehicle on the basis of an output of an external environment sensor, and a determiner configured to determine that a first road boundary matches a second road boundary when the second road boundary included in second road information that is a recognition result of the recognizer is within a road boundary determination area based on a position of the first road boundary included in the first road information acquired by the acquirer. The determiner sets a size of the road boundary determination area on the basis of a predetermined condition.

  • Publication number: 20200307599
    Abstract: A first possible space, for which a lane change of the vehicle is possible, is specified from an inter-vehicle distance between the preceding other vehicle and the nearby vehicle, a speed of the preceding other vehicle, and a speed of the nearby vehicle. A second possible space, for which the lane change of the vehicle is possible, is specified from an inter-vehicle distance between the nearby vehicle and the following other vehicle, the speed of the nearby vehicle, and a speed of the following other vehicle. The control unit controls the traveling of the vehicle to make the lane change to the adjacent lane based on a result of the evaluation of the first possible space and the second possible space.
