  • Publication number: 20220001793
    Abstract: A headlight control system has a headlight including a plurality of LED light sources, a camera and a radar that detect a predetermined target object present ahead of a vehicle, and a controller configured to control the headlight such that, when the target object is present, of the plurality of LED light sources, the LED light source irradiating a region where the target object is present is turned off, and such that, thereafter, when the target object is no longer present in the region, the turned-off LED light source is turned on again. The controller controls the headlight such that, at the time of turning on the turned-off LED light source again, a change rate of luminance of the LED light source is changed according to a position of an irradiation region of the LED light source.

  • Publication number: 20210323568
    Abstract: A vehicle control system can have an in-vehicle camera that monitors a state of the driver; a center display and a meter device that notify the occupant of information; and a controller that executes automatic stop control in the case where the driver abnormality is determined. The controller can perform: a first operation to decelerate the vehicle to a specified speed when the abnormality is determined; a second operation to further decelerate and stop the vehicle after the first operation; a third operation to change a lane of the vehicle between the first operation and the second operation; and a fourth operation to move the vehicle to a road shoulder between the first operation and the second operation. The controller can notify the operation performed, and notify of a stop of the operation in the case where the operation performed is stopped.

  • Publication number: 20210323567
    Abstract: A vehicle control system has an in-vehicle camera that monitors a state of the driver; a meter device provided in front of a driver's seat; a center display provided at a substantially central position in a vehicle width direction; and a controller that executes automatic stop control when the driver abnormality is determined. The controller does not cause the meter device to show options for selecting execution or discontinuation of the automatic stop control by operating a center console operation device, but causes the meter device to at least show information that notifies of the driver abnormality and/or that notifies of the execution of the automatic stop control. Meanwhile, the controller causes the center display to at least show information having content similar to the information shown on the meter device, and causes the center display to show the options for selecting execution or discontinuation of the automatic stop control.

  • Publication number: 20190001868
    Abstract: The present invention provides a vehicle headlight that can improve visual responsiveness during nighttime driving. The vehicle headlight includes a processor configured to control at least one light source so as to radiate light directed to a road surface forward of a vehicle and form a first light distribution pattern having a hot zone at a central region in the vehicle width direction, and to radiate light toward a roadside forward of the vehicle and form a second light distribution pattern having a hot zone at a position offset outwardly in the vehicle width direction from the hot zone of the first light distribution pattern, in an overlapped area with the first light distribution pattern. The irradiation range of light directed at the objects on the roadside has an upper edge part that extends in a direction inclined inwardly in the vehicle width direction forward of the vehicle.
