  • Patent number: 7792621
    Abstract: An apparatus controls a swivel angle of on-vehicle headlights, the swivel angle of the lights being changeable in a lateral direction of the vehicle. A target swivel angle of the headlights is determined based on, for example, load map data of the road ahead the vehicle, and a control start point is determined based on the current position information and the road map data. The swivel angle is controlled to the target swivel angle in response to a state where the current position of the vehicle has reached the control start point. Running road shape-related information and a curvature direction of the road ahead are acquired. A control of the swivel angle toward the target swivel angle is prohibited when a direction of the target swivel angle determined is inconsistent with the curvature direction of the road, even in a case where the vehicle has reached the control start point.

  • Publication number: 20090248251
    Abstract: A light control device is provided in which an operation is executed to acquire a detected result representing an own vehicle approaching an intersection (S140: YES), and an operation is executed to allow the orientation of the light axis of the headlight oriented in a turning-side to be moved to the turning direction (S230), Then, during a phase in which the orientation of the light axis of the headlight oriented in the turning-side is moved to the turning-side, if a steering angle takes a value equivalent to the turning behavior (S270; YES), an orientation of the headlight, placed on a side opposite to the turning-side, is moved to the turning-side (S280). This allows the orientation of the light axis of the headlight to be placed so as to allow the vehicle to maintain favorable visibility on a front area of the vehicle before the beginning of the turning behavior.
