  • Publication number: 20190073902
    Abstract: A parking support ECU 10 detects a parking area based on a camera image acquired by cameras 20A through 20D for photographing a surrounding area of an own vehicle. The ECU displays a parking completed location to superimpose the parking completed location on the parking surrounding area. The parking completed location is a location of the own vehicle when parking to the parking area is completed. In the case where an obstacle having a height equal to or greater than a first threshold height H1th is present in the parking area, the ECU extraporates, as the parking completed location, a location obtained by moving a normally completed location in an entering direction of the parking area by a specific distance which is determined based on a location of the obstacle. The normally completed location is the parking completed location when no obstacle is present in the parking area.
