  • Patent number: 11897537
    Abstract: A driver assistance system is provided that allows a driver to easily perform an accelerator operation by a finger of his/her hand while grasping a steering holding section. The driver assistance system includes an operation member near a steering wheel held by a driver, which rotates about a rotation shaft in a vehicle front-rear direction and thereby steers the vehicle. The operation member has an operation section that the driver can manually operate to accelerate/decelerate the vehicle, and includes a support member on the steering wheel, the support member supporting the operation member in a slidingly displaceable manner along a steering axial direction. The operation section is disposed near a radially inner side of a rim section of the steering wheel, and the operation section and the rim section overlap in the steering axial direction within a movable range of the operation member along the steering axial direction.

  • Patent number: 11615627
    Abstract: There are provided an object recognition apparatus that raises the recognition accuracy for a surrounding object and a vehicle control apparatus, and an object recognition method and a vehicle control method. An object recognition apparatus receives object data, which is a state value of the object, from a first sensor for detecting a surrounding object; compares estimation data obtained through estimation of a state value of the object, based on recognition data calculated in a past period, with the object data, and determines whether or not the object data is data in a low-resolution state; then, in accordance with the determination result, calculates the state value of the object by use of object data and estimation data and then generates the state value as recognition data, so that the recognition accuracy for an object is raised.
