  • Patent number: 10964211
    Abstract: A vehicle driving assistance device includes a driving assistance controller and an acquisition portion. The driving assistance controller includes a signal information acquisition part, a remaining distance calculator, and a driving assistance information output portion. The acquisition portion acquires information on (i) a vehicular speed and remaining distance to the intersection of an intersecting-side vehicle travelling on an intersecting road that joins a main road at the intersection, (ii) an arrival time when the intersecting-side vehicle arrives at the intersection, or (iii) lighting period information of an intersecting-side traffic signal. The driving assistance controller updates lighting period information of a main-side traffic signal based on information acquired from a road-to-vehicle communication transceiver, and outputs driving assistance information based on the updated lighting period information.

  • Patent number: 10957197
    Abstract: A vehicle driving assistance system capable of providing a driver of a vehicle with appropriate driving assistance when the vehicle is approaching an intersection. If a traffic signal includes multiple aspects that are in accord with the directions of traffic movement at an intersection, an identifier determines whether an intended direction of movement (an intention to turn right or left) at the intersection has been received from a driver through an identifying device. If the identifier has received an intended direction of movement, an aspect (a right-turn or left-turn arrow aspect) for which assistance is provided through communication by a reporter is identified. The reporter then assists the right or left turn of the vehicle for the intersection in step S7. If the identifier does not receive an intended direction of movement from the driver, the reporter assists only a straight-ahead movement of the vehicle in step S7.

  • Patent number: 10957193
    Abstract: The reception unit receives the traffic light information at least a transition between first and second light colors of a traffic light at an intersection and turn-on times of the first and the second light colors, using a wireless signal received from a server via a transceiver. A position acquisition unit acquires a position of a vehicle. A passing speed range calculation unit calculates a speed range in which the vehicle is allowed to pass through the intersection in accordance with light colors of the traffic light, based on the traffic light information and on the position of the vehicle. The messaging unit outputs a message of driving assistance information including suggestions for deceleration or a passage possibility through the traffic intersection. A vehicle behavior storing unit stores content of the message and a behavior of the vehicle corresponding to the content of the message in a behavior memorizing unit.
