  • Patent number: 10768617
    Abstract: Provided is a drive assistance device for assisting driving of a vehicle by using an automatic driving function. Assuming various conditions of the driver, a plurality of notification timings to notify of switching from an automatic driving mode to a manual driving mode is set. Notifying a driver who is drowsing at a notification timing of long premature time allows the driver to have sufficient time margin to be ready for manual driving and to shift to driving action more safely. A driver who is reading a book or operating a smartphone is expected to be able to shift to driving action immediately after a notification, and thus it is sufficient to notify at a notification timing of short premature time, which can reduce inconvenience for the driver.

  • Patent number: 10474292
    Abstract: An information reception device is provided with: operation surface which is adjusted to produce a characteristic index vibration by an object contact; a storage device stores candidate information (candidate information is related with the index vibration) which serves as a candidate of input information; a microphone which acquires observation information according to observation of the actual vibration arising in the surrounding environment; and a CPU. The CPU (selecting part) judges whether or not the index vibration exists in the observation information acquired. When the CPU judges that the index vibration exists, the CPU selects the candidate information which is related with the index vibration as the input information.
