  • Publication number: 20220135022
    Abstract: In a parking assistance device, a target parking position calculation unit calculates a target parking position of a subject vehicle based on a position of a corner point of a parking space. A constraint condition setting unit sets a constraint condition regarding a target parking route for guiding the subject vehicle to the target parking position based on a position and a posture angle of the subject vehicle, peripheral information of the subject vehicle, and the position of the corner point of the parking space. The constraint condition includes a condition that a curvature change rate of the target parking route is continuous. A target parking route calculation unit calculates the target parking route based on the position and the posture angle of the subject vehicle, the position of the corner point of the parking space, the target parking position, and the constraint condition.

  • Publication number: 20210291814
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a parking assistance device, and includes: a surrounding detection part detecting surrounding information of a vehicle which is to be parked to detect a parking space where the vehicle can be parked; a parking route generation part generating a traveling route from a current position of the vehicle to the parking space; a travel controller making the vehicle travel to the parking space along the traveling route; an obstacle detection part detecting an obstacle around the vehicle; and a parking route regeneration part generating a new traveling route to avoid a collision between the vehicle and the obstacle and park the vehicle in the parking space in a case where the travel controller makes the vehicle travel to the parking space along the traveling route, wherein the travel controller makes the vehicle travel along the new traveling route when the new traveling route is generated.
