  • Patent number: 10522032
    Abstract: In a driving-state data storage apparatus, a collector collects, from each of vehicles on a target travelling road, a value of data indicative of a driving state of the corresponding vehicle to correspondingly obtain driving-state data values for the target road. A data allocator divides, based on similarity among the driving-state data values, the target traveling road into a plurality of traveling segments, and extracts, from the driving-state data values, data values for each of the divided travelling segments. The data values extracted for each of the travelling segments are similar to each other. The data allocator allocates a distribution of the extracted data values for each of the divided travelling segments to the corresponding one of the divided travelling segments as a feature distribution. A storage unit stores the feature distribution allocated for each of the travelling segments.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20190195633
    Abstract: An acquisition unit in an information processing device acquires a traveling time of a vehicle from a place of departure to a destination, and a period of time required for a task performed by a user. A derivation unit derives a period of time required for a remaining task in accordance with the period of time required for the task acquired by the acquisition unit and a period of time that the user performed the task. An output unit outputs a suggestion, for departure in the vehicle, when the period of time required for the remaining task derived by the derivation unit and the traveling time acquired by the acquisition unit meet a predetermined relationship.

  • Patent number: 10300922
    Abstract: A risk assessment system is provided and includes a behavior description generator, driving behavior comparator, and risk assessment modules and a transceiver. The behavior description generator module receives a set of driving features and topics corresponding to a driving behavior of a first driver in a location and under a set of driving conditions. The driving behavior comparator module: compares the set of driving features and the topics to other sets of features and topics, which correspond to driving behaviors of other drivers for the location and same or similar driving conditions as the set of driving conditions; and generates an anomaly score for the first driver based on results of the comparison. The risk assessment module calculates a risk assessment score for the driver based on the anomaly score, where the risk assessment score is indicative of a risk level of the first driver relative to the other drivers.
