  • Publication number: 20200198632
    Abstract: In a drive assistance device, a required space estimation unit estimates a required space which is a space required for a subject vehicle to complete a starting. A required time estimation unit calculates an estimated required time which is an estimate value of a time required to complete the starting at a time of starting the subject vehicle. A collision time estimation unit calculates an estimated collision time which is an estimate value of a time until when an obstacle reaches the required space. A start margin calculation unit calculates a start margin indicating a temporal margin for the subject vehicle to complete the starting until the obstacle reaches the required space based on the estimated required time and the estimated collision time. The notification processing unit notifies a driver of the subject vehicle of the start margin.

  • Publication number: 20200047798
    Abstract: Provided are a lane separation line detection correcting device/method and an automatic driving system for stabilizing the behavior of a vehicle by correcting overestimated curvature information resulting from an erroneous detection of a curvature of a lane separation line. A travel speed detecting circuit detects, for example, a target travel speed as vehicle sensor information. A maximum curvature estimating circuit estimates, based on the target travel speed, a maximum curvature of a road along which an own vehicle is traveling. A curvature correcting circuit corrects a curvature of a lane separation line input thereto based on the maximum curvature. A control unit controls steering of the own vehicle based on the lane separation line having a corrected curvature. As a result, vehicle steering can be automatically controlled so as to prevent the own vehicle while traveling from departing from a driving lane.
