  • Patent number: 10310508
    Abstract: To control a speed at a time of entering a curved road a vehicle to autonomously travel within a travelling lane even in a case where there is an error in an estimated longitudinal position of the vehicle. A curve travel speed calculation unit 15b calculates a curve travel speed for a vehicle to autonomously travelling in a travelling lane based on a curve radius and an estimated error in longitudinal position. A speed planning unit 15c and a travel control unit 17 decelerate the vehicle M such that the speed of the vehicle M becomes the curve travel speed at the time of entering the curved road in front of the vehicle M in a case where the speed of the vehicle M is equal to or higher than the curve travel speed and the curve travel speed is equal to or higher than the reference speed.

  • Patent number: 10220849
    Abstract: A control apparatus of a vehicle that calculates a feedback requested acceleration for maintaining an inter-vehicle distance to a target distance and a feedforward requested acceleration for causing the own vehicle to travel following a communicating preceding vehicle and calculates a requested acceleration of the own vehicle on the basis of the feedback and feedforward requested accelerations. The apparatus executes a control that causes the own vehicle to travel following the preceding vehicle by controlling the acceleration of the own vehicle such that the acceleration of the own vehicle corresponds to the requested acceleration of the own vehicle. The apparatus sets the feedforward requested acceleration to zero when a shift lever of the preceding vehicle is positioned at a shift position other than a shift position that causes the preceding vehicle to travel forward and the feedforward requested acceleration is larger than zero.

  • Publication number: 20190042399
    Abstract: An apparatus updates module information containing information on interfaces of modules contained in source code of a test-run target, when an update of an interface in the source code is detected. The apparatus refers to test-case information containing pieces of information on plural test cases, and selects a run-target test case from among the plural test cases, based on test run times taken in previous runs of the plural test cases. The apparatus generates a dummy module to include simplified code by simplifying code in source code of a second module to be statically linked to a first module called during a previous run of the selected run-target test case, so that the simplified code is not related to implementation of the interface indicated in the updated module information. The apparatus compiles the first module and the dummy module, and issues an instruction to run the selected run-target test case.

  • Patent number: 10118616
    Abstract: A control apparatus of a vehicle for causing an own vehicle to travel following a preceding vehicle calculates a requested acceleration of the own vehicle on the basis of a feedback requested acceleration to maintain an inter-vehicle distance at a target distance and a feedforward requested acceleration to cause the own vehicle to travel following the preceding vehicle. The apparatus calculates the feedforward requested acceleration on the basis of information on an acceleration of the preceding vehicle sent from the preceding vehicle through a wireless communication. The apparatus sets the feedforward requested acceleration to zero when a vehicle travel stabilization control is executed in the preceding vehicle to control a friction braking force applied to at least one of vehicle wheels of the preceding vehicle to stabilize a travel of the preceding vehicle, and the feedforward requested acceleration is larger than zero.

  • Publication number: 20180275590
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus comprises a container, a supplier, a conveyor, a grammage detector, a sheet detector, an image former, and a processor. The processor set a flag when the detected grammage exceeds a first grammage, measures a conveyance time of a sheet to the sheet detector, determines a conveyance delay of the sheet based on whether the conveyance time is greater than or equal to a first amount of time, counts a number of occurrences of the conveyance delay in a state where the detected grammage exceeds the first grammage, and prohibits supply of sheets from the container when the detected grammage exceeds a second grammage larger than the first grammage or the number of occurrences of the conveyance delay is greater than or equal to a threshold value.
