  • Patent number: 10922974
    Abstract: It is estimated whether or not each of landmarks is an object to be noted for travel assist control by using an estimation line EL set in the reference frame. The estimation line EL is set to be substantially parallel to a borderline BL. The borderline BL is a line a line which separates a drivable area and an undrivable area of a vehicle. It is estimated that the landmark located on a center line CL side is the object to be noted for travel assist control. It is estimated that the landmark located on a borderline BL side is not the object to be noted for travel assist control.

  • Publication number: 20200373156
    Abstract: A deposition method includes a first process performed by repeating causing aminosilane gas to be adsorbed on a substrate; causing a first silicon oxide film to be stacked on the substrate by supplying oxidation gas to the substrate to oxidize the aminosilane gas adsorbed on the substrate; and performing a reforming process on the first silicon oxide film by activating a first reformed gas by plasma and supplying the first reformed gas to the first silicon oxide film, and a second process, performed after the first process, by repeating causing aminosilane gas to be adsorbed on the substrate; causing a second silicon oxide film to be stacked on the substrate by supplying oxidation gas; and performing a reforming process on the second silicon oxide film by supplying a plasma-activated second reformed gas. The first reformed gas has a smaller effect of oxidizing the substrate than the second reformed gas.

  • Patent number: 10843692
    Abstract: A technology is provided in which not only the information on the first preceding vehicle ILV but also the information on the preceding vehicle group LVG ahead of the first preceding vehicle ILV is applied to the travel assist control. Firstly, specification processing of a preceding vehicle LV on the own lane is executed (step S1). Subsequently, landmark information on the preceding vehicle LV is graded (step S2). Subsequently, a shielding ratio SR of the preceding vehicle LV belonging to the preceding vehicle group LVG is calculated for each preceding vehicle LV (step S3). Subsequently, determination processing is executed whether or not to apply the information on the preceding vehicle group LVG to travel assist control (step S4).
