  • Publication number: 20200346639
    Abstract: When there are a plurality of routes to one parking space, automatic parking cannot be performed on a route with short parking time. A route candidate generation unit 301 changes a reference vehicle speed and a route shape, and searches for a route from a parking start position to a parking target position. The route passage time calculation unit 302 calculates, for each route candidate, the time required to pass through the route based on the reference vehicle speed and the length of the route. A state switching time calculation unit 303 calculates, for each route candidate, the time required for switching between forward and backward movements of a vehicle, and the time required to change steering to a predetermined steering angle in a state where the vehicle is stopped. A route selection processing unit 305 selects a specific route, for example, a route with short parking time, from a generated routes based on route passage time.

  • Publication number: 20190168732
    Abstract: When acceleration control is interrupted due to a lane change or the like, the engine speed is controlled from a high rotation speed to a low rotation speed, a variation in engine speed increases, and poor driver's driving performance is brought about. Furthermore, suppression of acceleration when there is a lane change possibility may rather cause the lane change and the driver feels discomfort. The vehicle control unit according to the present invention includes a target engine speed calculation unit which corrects a target engine speed to be reduced relative to a predetermined target engine speed when the acceleration/deceleration possibility determination unit determines that there is a deceleration possibility during acceleration to a target vehicle speed in automatic acceleration/deceleration control, and an engine control unit which controls an engine to have a target engine speed corrected by the target engine speed calculation unit.
