  • Patent number: 11338812
    Abstract: The vehicle control device recognizes an object around an own-vehicle and acquires information related to a road shape ahead of the own-vehicle. The vehicle control device detects, when a road shape prompting cut-in to an own-lane is acquired, a monitoring target vehicle likely to be prompted to cut into the own-lane among the recognized objects. The vehicle control device executes an evasive preparation for cut-in of the monitoring target vehicle when the monitoring target vehicle is detected. The vehicle control device executes an evasive action to avoid interference between the monitoring target vehicle and the own-vehicle when a predetermined motion from which cut-in of the monitoring target vehicle to the own-lane is expected is sensed after the evasive preparation is executed.
