  • Publication number: 20220371615
    Abstract: To provide an automatic driving and driving support system, an automatic driving support apparatus, an automatic driving vehicle, and the like which can make the automatic driving vehicle generate the target traveling track suitable for the front road state which cannot be detected by the automatic driving vehicle, while suppressing the increase in the calculation processing load of the automatic vehicle. In an automatic driving and driving support system, when the target traveling track is acquired from the preceding vehicle which precedes and travels the same lane as a lane of the scheduled traveling route acquired from the support object vehicle, the automatic driving support apparatus transmits the target traveling track to the support object vehicle; and the automatic driving vehicle generates the target traveling track of the own vehicle based on the acquired target traveling track of the preceding vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20220331505
    Abstract: A negative pressure is generated in an upper space of a canister due to a suction force of a suction source and, then, a negative pressure is generated in a waste liquid receiving space of a cylindrical body in response to the generation of the negative pressure in the upper space . At this stage of the operation, a first covering member that covers a first opening that opens facing the upper space in a waste liquid treating agent storing portion plastically deforms upward by a suction force caused by a negative pressure in the upper space. On the other hand, when a depressing force that pushes the first covering member downward is applied to the first covering member in a state where an opening and closing lid of the canister is opened so that a negative pressure in the upper space is released, the depressing force is transmitted to a second covering member so that the second covering member is broken.
