  • Patent number: 10893388
    Abstract: A map generation device includes: a communication unit that acquires position information about a vehicle at a time when an image is photographed from the vehicle; and a control unit that estimates a dispersion state of pollen, based on the position information about the vehicle acquired by the communication unit and detection information indicating a result of a first detection in the image, and generates map information indicating the estimated dispersion state, the first detection in the image being a detection of a person that wears an anti-pollen article.

  • Publication number: 20200202150
    Abstract: A control device includes a controller. The controller detects, as an event, that a target present outside a vehicle has been overlooked by a driver of the vehicle during. The controller controls the outputting of a target image, which is an image including the target overlooked in the detected event, toward the driver.

  • Publication number: 20200202146
    Abstract: An information providing device includes a control unit configured to detect an object entering a road from a first image which is captured from a vehicle and to acquire a second image including the detected object and a communication unit configured to provide the second image to present the second image to a driver under the control of the control unit. A driving support device includes a control unit configured to acquire a second image including a detected object when the object entering a road is detected from a first image captured from a vehicle and to present the acquired second image to a driver.

  • Publication number: 20200198655
    Abstract: A driving assist device includes a control unit configured to acquire event position information that is position information about a vehicle when it is detected that a driver of the vehicle is in a looking aside state in the vehicle, as an event, and configured to present attention information calling for attention, to a driver who is driving toward a position indicated by the event position information.

  • Publication number: 20200200560
    Abstract: A driving assistance device includes a control unit that acquires event position information and an object image, and presents the acquired object image to a driver who is driving toward a position indicated in the acquired event position information. The event position information is position information of a vehicle at the time when a fact that a first object is confused with a second object, existing on the same road as the first object, is detected as an event in the vehicle, and the object image is an image captured from the vehicle and including the second object.

  • Publication number: 20200202141
    Abstract: An information provision device includes a controller configured to detect installation of an anti-skid tool onto a vehicle from an image including at least a part of the vehicle and at least a part of the vicinity of the vehicle and a communication unit configured to provide position information of the vehicle at the time of the installation of the anti-skid tool detected by the controller. A driving assistance device includes a communication unit configured to acquire position information of a vehicle at the time of installation of an anti-skid tool when the installation of the anti-skid tool onto the vehicle is detected from an image including at least a part of the vehicle and at least a part of a vicinity of the vehicle, and a controller configured to present information acquired by the communication unit to the driver of another vehicle different from the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200198626
    Abstract: A vehicle controller includes a control unit. The control unit detects a target that moves in a direction to approach a vehicle from an image captured from the vehicle. Based on a detection result, the control unit determines whether the vehicle should evacuate in order to let the target pass by. When determining that the vehicle should evacuate, the control unit causes the vehicle to evacuate without waiting for an operation by a driver.

  • Patent number: 6395336
    Abstract: A resin coating is formed on a metal surface using an aqueous autodepositing resin composition that contains oxidizing agent, acid, and carboxyl-functional and/or hydroxyl-functional water-dispersible or water-soluble resin and, optionally, metal ions; the resulting coating, while still in its uncured condition, is subject to post-treatment with an aqueous solution containing from 0.5 to 5.0 g/L of amine and from 10 to 100 g/L (solids) of water-soluble amino resin molecules that bear at least two alkoxymethylamino, methylolamino, and/or imino groups; and the coating is then dried and cured. This provides a highly anticorrosive coating on the metal, and contrary to an analogous process in which the post-treatment solution contains amino resin but not amine, the post-treatment solution remains stable and provides continuing high quality coating performance even after a considerable amount of metal surface per unit volume of post-treatment solution has been processed.
