  • Patent number: 11465504
    Abstract: A control device controls a display device capable of displaying visual information for a passenger of a moving body, in two or more display regions. The control device causes adjacent target regions of the display regions to change from a display state in which the information is displayed to a display restricted state in which display is restricted, according to a predetermined order, when a predetermined condition is satisfied. The control device determines the target regions and the order, based on a traveling direction of the moving body at the time when the condition is satisfied or a traveling direction of the moving body that is predicted after the time when the condition is satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20220242378
    Abstract: A braking control system includes control circuitry configured to control first and second brakes in a vehicle. The control circuitry is configured to calculate a target braking force in accordance with the operation amount of a brake pedal by a driver, determine a first braking force and a second braking force based on the target braking force, and control each of the first and second brakes such that each of the determined braking forces is generated in the vehicle. The first and second braking forces are determined such that a sum of the first and second braking forces becomes the target braking force and a pitch behavior specified by a preset pitch behavior model occurs in the vehicle.
