  • Patent number: 10380887
    Abstract: In a driving assist system, a driving evaluator compares a driving feature data item sampled at each predetermined sampling point and obtained from a target vehicle with historical driving data items for the corresponding sampling point. The driving evaluator obtains, based on a result of the comparison, an evaluation value of the driving feature data item for the target vehicle at each predetermined sampling point. An unusual driving determiner obtains a cumulative sum of selected values in the evaluation values of the driving feature data items for the target vehicle. The unusual driving determiner determines whether the cumulative sum is larger than a predetermined threshold, and determines that driving of a driver of the target vehicle is unusual upon determining that the cumulative sum is larger than the predetermined threshold.

  • Patent number: 10377412
    Abstract: A steering assist control system causes multiple actuator units to control an assist torque that provides assistance in steering in accordance with a turning operation on a steering wheel in a vehicle having an information presentation apparatus. The steering assist control system includes: a monitoring part that monitors the actuator units; a torque control part that reduces, in a case of a one-unit anomaly, the assist torque that results from combining output torques from all the actuator units, when the turning operation is performed on the steering wheel; and a warning control part controls the information presentation apparatus. In the case of the one-unit anomaly, the torque control part reduces the assist torque so that the assist torque is smaller than an assist torque output before the occurrence of the one-unit anomaly, every time the turning operation proceeds by a set angle.
