  • Publication number: 20210107464
    Abstract: A parking assistance apparatus capable of making a parking route shorter when providing parking assistance for parallel parking is obtained. The parking assistance apparatus according to the present invention is a parking assistance apparatus for assisting the parallel parking of a driver's own vehicle 21 and has a configuration that: calculates an escapable position where the driver's own vehicle 21 can be made to escape from a parking area Sp; calculates a parking-space leaving route E where the driver's own vehicle 21 can be moved from the escapable position to an initial position P0 in a passage area Sr; and sets a parking route based on the parking-space leaving route E.

  • Publication number: 20200249679
    Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to obtain a parking support apparatus capable of calculating a parking route suited for the circumstances and the needs. A parking support apparatus 1 according to the present invention sets a plurality of candidate connection positions along a reverse direction route for a driver's own vehicle to leave from a target parking position, calculates a first connection route capable of reaching any one of the candidate connection positions, and calculates a first parking route by using the first connection route and the reverse direction route.

  • Publication number: 20200122775
    Abstract: An autonomous driving control device and an autonomous driving path computation method capable of computing a driving path without extremely changing a movement of a steering wheel during autonomous driving. A parking control device computes a parking path for automatically parking a vehicle, and includes an acceleration section transition curve computing unit that computes an acceleration section transition curve based on a target steering speed set in advance and an acceleration section target vehicle speed, a deceleration section transition curve computing unit that computes a deceleration section transition curve based on the target steering speed and a deceleration target vehicle speed, and a parking path computing unit that computes a parking path using the acceleration section transition curve and the deceleration section transition curve. The parking path is computed by setting the deceleration section target vehicle speed faster than the acceleration section target vehicle speed.

  • Publication number: 20200081446
    Abstract: A parking assistance device assists in re-parking a vehicle that has been parked with its position and orientation deviated from ideal ones, by repositioning the vehicle to be at a correct position and in a correct orientation. A parking assistance device is adapted to assist in parking a vehicle in a parking space provided on one side of a road, and includes a parking path setting unit that sets a parking path of from the initial position of the vehicle on the road to a target parking position in the parking space, a positional deviation determination unit that determines whether there is any positional deviation between the vehicle and the parking space when the vehicle has been parked along the parking path, and a repositioning path computing unit configured to compute a repositioning path when a positional deviation is determined to be present.

  • Publication number: 20200041287
    Abstract: A parking assistance device that can, when assisting in angle parking, park a vehicle at a position intended by a driver and in a correct vehicle attitude. The parking assistance device includes a pull-out path computing unit that computes a pull-out path for pulling a vehicle out of a parking space based on parking space information and constraint conditions regarding vehicle behavior, a candidate connection position setting unit that sets a plurality of candidate connection positions the pull-out path, a reachable path computing unit that computes a reachable path that allows the vehicle to reach one of the plurality of candidate connection positions from the initial position, and a parking path setting unit that sets a parking path by connecting the pull-out path and the reachable path. The pull-out path computing unit computes the pull-out path based on the angle of inclination between the road orientation and the parking orientation.
