  • Patent number: 10222806
    Abstract: A vehicle drive control device includes a drive lane detector, a drive assist unit, and a curve road steering assist unit. The drive lane detector detects a drive lane of a subject vehicle. The drive assist unit performs drive assist control to assist the subject vehicle in lane keep driving in the drive lane. The curve road steering assist unit performs steering assist for assisting the subject vehicle in turning along a curve of a curve road if the drive lane is the curve road and if the drive assist control performed by the drive assist unit is discontinued during driving on the curve road.

  • Patent number: 10162361
    Abstract: A steering control unit performs lane keeping control to cause a steering system to operate to reduce a distance between a width-direction center position of a lane and a position where the vehicle is traveling in the lane on the basis of a recognized state of the lane obtained by a lane recognizing unit. A road condition determining unit determines whether the road on which the vehicle is traveling is a straight road. A lane keeping responsivity setting unit sets, when it is determined by the road condition determining unit that the road on which the vehicle is traveling is a straight road, responsivity of the lane keeping control to the distance to be lower than responsivity set when it is determined that the road on which the vehicle is traveling is not a straight road.

  • Patent number: 10147003
    Abstract: A more accurate lane is estimated by using a lane at a previous time point after coordinate conversion that is coordinate-converted based on traveling information (a vehicle speed and a yaw rate) at a current time point, as well as a lane at the current time point.

  • Patent number: 9771068
    Abstract: There is provided a running-support system and a running-support method capable of providing more suitable running support at the time of turning a curve. In the running-support system or the running-support method, a steering-support section provides steering support using at least one of a piece of map information on a curve and a lane image picked up by an image pickup section at the time of turning the curve. The steering-support section suppresses the steering support without being based on the piece of map information when the steering-support section detects an end point of the curve on the basis of the lane image.

  • Publication number: 20170240205
    Abstract: If road information indicates that a first curve zone at a near side and a second curve zone at a far side that curve in different directions are continuously located in a road, a steering assist unit of a steering assist device or a steering assist circuit finishes decreasing process of decreasing the steering assist amount when the subject vehicle passes through the first curve zone earlier than a case when the subject vehicle passes through the second curve zone.
