  • Publication number: 20180105186
    Abstract: An information processing system that appropriately estimates a driving conduct includes: a detector that detects a vehicle environment state, which is at least one of surroundings of a vehicle and a driving state of the vehicle; a behavior learning unit configured to cause a neural network to learn a relationship between the vehicle environment state detected by the detector and a behavior of the vehicle implemented after the vehicle environment state; and a behavior estimation unit configured to estimate a behavior of the vehicle by inputting, into the neural network that learned, the vehicle environment state detected at a current point in time by the detector.

  • Publication number: 20180093676
    Abstract: The driving assistance device acquires, from an autonomous driving controller that determines an action of a vehicle during autonomous driving of the vehicle, action information indicating a first action that the vehicle is caused to execute. The driving assistance device acquires, from a detector that detects a surrounding situation and a travel state of the vehicle, detection information indicating a detection result. The driving assistance device determines a second action which is executable in place of the first action, based on the detection information. The driving assistance device generates a first image representing the first action and a second image representing the second action. The driving assistance device outputs the first image and the second image to a notification device such that the first image and the second image are displayed within a fixed field of view of a driver of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180074497
    Abstract: Provided is a technology for improving accuracy in determining the next action. Travel history generator generates, for each driver, a travel history associating an environmental parameter indicating a travel environment through which a vehicle has previously traveled with an action selected by the driver in response to the environmental parameter. Acquisition unit acquires a travel history similar to a travel history of a current driver from among travel histories generated by travel history generator. Driver model generator generates a driver model based on the travel history acquired by acquisition unit. Determination unit determines the next action based on the driver model generated by driver model generator) and an environmental parameter indicating a current travel environment of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180052458
    Abstract: An information processing system capable of estimating a driving conduct suited to a driver includes: a history obtainer that obtains a personal driving environment history of each of a plurality of drivers, each of the personal driving environment histories indicating one or more vehicle behaviors selected by the driver, and a driving environment associated with each of the one or more behaviors, the driving environment being a driving environment of the vehicle at a point in time of selection of the behavior it is associated with; and a modeler that models, from a driving environment history including the personal driving environment histories of the plurality of drivers, the personal driving environment history of at least one of the plurality of drivers, to build a driver model indicating a relationship between a behavior and a driving environment for the vehicle of the at least one of the plurality of drivers.
