  • Publication number: 20210348943
    Abstract: A map information correction apparatus includes: a feature point priority determination unit that determines, based on a priority table, a priority for a feature point of own mobile object surrounding information; a feature pair priority determination unit that gives, when there is one or more feature pairs, a priority to the feature pair, based on an own mobile object surrounding information priority of the feature pair and a map information priority of the feature pair, the feature pair being a pair of an own mobile object surrounding information feature point and a received map information feature point that correspond to each other; an error calculation unit that calculates an error in the map information, based on a high-priority own mobile object surrounding information feature point and a high-priority map information feature point, the high-priority own mobile object surrounding information feature point being the own mobile object surrounding information feature point, the high-priority map informati

  • Publication number: 20210223061
    Abstract: An object identification device includes: a region determination unit that acquires observed position information indicating positions at which an object is observed, and determines whether each position is in any one of regions into which an area indicated is divided; a road reference position conversion unit that converts each position in the region, into a traveling direction position parallel to an assumed road direction and a transverse direction position perpendicular to the assumed road direction; and a comparison unit that rearranges the positions in order of the traveling direction, creates pairs of front and rear positions, calculates a difference in the traveling direction positions and the transverse direction positions between each pair of positions, and determines that a pair of positions between which the differences are within thresholds specified in respective items are derived from the same object, and a pair of positions between which at least one of the differences is greater than the thre

  • Publication number: 20210086791
    Abstract: A vehicle traveling control device includes: a communicator periodically receiving a dynamic map; a sensor management circuit collecting, from one or more sensors measuring a state of objects around a vehicle, a result of measurement representing the state of objects around the vehicle; a surrounding information comparator comparing object data represented by the dynamic map with object data represented by the result of measurement, and in response to finding mismatching object data, detecting, from the mismatching object data, data of the dynamic map representing an object within a specified range from the vehicle; and a proximity information processor setting, from the data of the dynamic map detected by the surrounding information comparator, data representing the vehicle as an avoidance non-target object in traveling control, and setting data representing an object other than the vehicle as an avoidance target object in traveling control or the avoidance non-target object.

  • Publication number: 20210039658
    Abstract: An object identification device according to the present invention includes: an acquisition unit that acquires, from a sensor that measures a position of an object and a speed of the object, sensor information measured by the sensor, and acquires size information from a device that transmits size information indicating a size and a position of the object; a designator adding unit that adds, to each piece of the sensor information, a sensor position designator indicating which part of the object is likely to be detected; and an information integration unit that determines, based on the sensor position designator, whether the object corresponding to the size information and the object corresponding to the sensor information are the same.
