  • Publication number: 20220144087
    Abstract: In a display control device for a head-up display mounted in a vehicle, when a lane keeping control function of driving a vehicle to travel in a traveling lane is terminated, a termination notification image to notify a driver of a termination of the lane keeping control function is generated and caused to be displayed by the head-up display. As another example, in a configuration where the operation of the lane keeping control function is continued even when one of a right road line and a left road line of the traveling lane is not detected, a continuation notification image to notify a driver of a continuation of the lane keeping control function is generated and caused to be displayed by the head-up display.

  • Publication number: 20220118983
    Abstract: A display control device is used for a vehicle having a function of performing a lane change control based on a driver's input to control a display on a head-up display. The display control device acquires route information of the vehicle, and displays a route guidance content providing a route guidance based on the route information to be superimposed on a road surface, and displays a lane change content indicating a control content of the lane change control to be superimposed on a road surface. When a display request to display one of the route guidance content and the lane change content is generated while the other is being displayed, the display control device displays the lane change content in preference to the route guidance content.

  • Publication number: 20220058998
    Abstract: In a display control device for a head-up display in a vehicle, a boundary information regarding a boundary of a travel lane recognized for driving control of the vehicle is acquired, and guidance information used for route guidance is acquired. When an estimated trajectory content indicating an estimated trajectory of the vehicle controlled based on the boundary information and a route guidance content providing guidance on a route at a predetermined point based on the guidance information are displayed together, the estimated trajectory content and the route guidance content are displayed in different modes from each other, or a display range of the estimated trajectory content is limited to a range not beyond a predetermined point for the route guidance. As another example, when the guidance information is acquired during display of the estimated trajectory content, the route guidance content is displayed while hiding the estimated trajectory content.

  • Publication number: 20220016980
    Abstract: In a display control device for a head-up display of a vehicle, a schedule notification content indicating a fulfillment schedule of a lane change is displayed on a road surface in a foreground in a superimposing manner. When the schedule notification content overreaches an angle of view, a non-superimposition content indicating the fulfillment schedule of the lane change independent of a superimposition target may be displayed, or the schedule notification content may be hidden. In a case where an arrow-shaped schedule notification content, having a tip portion indicating an adjacent lane as a destination of the lane change, is displayed in a superimposing manner on a road surface in the foreground, when the tip portion of the schedule notification content in a reference shape overreaches the angle of view, the schedule notification content may be transformed so that the tip portion is positioned within the angle of view.

  • Publication number: 20220018678
    Abstract: In a display control device for a head-up display of a vehicle, it is determined whether a lane change control unit is in a standby state waiting for a lane change of the vehicle. When it is determined that the lane change control unit is not in the standby state, a fulfillment notification content indicating an execution state of the lane change is displayed on a road surface in a foreground in a superimposing manner. When it is determined that the lane change control unit is in the standby state, a standby notification content in a mode different from the fulfillment notification content is displayed on the road surface of the foreground in a superimposing manner, or a standby notification content in a mode associated with the fulfillment notification content is displayed as a non-superimposition content independent of a superimposition target.
