|20160075336||DRIVE ASSIST SYSTEM AND NON-TRANSITORY COMPUTER-READABLE MEDIUM - A drive assist system that includes circuitry that obtains information including at least one of acceleration/deceleration information and direction-of-travel information from a database that stores at least one of the acceleration/deceleration information provided in relation to each of a plurality of sections of a road and the direction-of-travel information provided in relation to each of the plurality of sections of the road; obtains current location information of a vehicle; and performs at least one of a acceleration/deceleration drive assist with regard to acceleration and/or deceleration of the vehicle based on the current location information and the acceleration/deceleration information, and a direction drive assist with regard to a direction of travel of the vehicle based on the current location information and the direction-of-travel information.||03-17-2016|
|20160063341||LOCATION CALCULATION SYSTEM AND NON-TRANSITORY COMPUTER-READABLE MEDIUM - A location calculation system that includes circuitry that stores vector information regarding a plurality of first vectors each connecting a specific point-relevant location, that is associated with each of a plurality of specific points set along a road, with a location of a predetermined feature, in relation to position information regarding each position of the plurality of specific points; stores predetermined feature location information regarding the location of the predetermined feature; obtains image data ahead of a moving body; calculates a location of the predetermined feature in an image of the image data as obtained by the circuitry; calculates a location of the moving body based on the location of the predetermined feature as calculated by the circuitry and the vector information; and outputs the location of the moving body as calculated by the circuitry.||03-03-2016|
|20160046293||DRIVING SUPPORT SYSTEM, DRIVING SUPPORT METHOD AND COMPUTER-READABLE STORAGE MEDIUM STORING PROGRAM - A driving support system includes a detector, a memory and a controller. The detector detects a present position of the vehicle. The memory stores lane information of a travelling lane and traffic light information in a state of being associated with each other. The traffic light information includes existing position information of a traffic light. The traffic light informs whether the vehicle travelling along the travelling lane is allowed to pass through the traffic light. The controller specifies the travelling lane on which the vehicle is travelling based on the lane information and the present position and supports the driving of the vehicle in accordance with the traffic light information and the traffic light associated with the travelling lane.||02-18-2016|
|20100121886||Map Database Generating Systems, Methods, and Programs - Systems, methods, and programs store feature information relating to features existing on a road and on the periphery of the road, each piece of feature information being associated with a unique identification symbol, each piece of feature information including disposition information expressing a spatial disposition of each feature independently of the road network, form information expressing a form of each feature, accuracy information expressing an accuracy of the information, and acquisition timing information expressing an acquisition timing of the information. The systems, methods, and programs (1) output the feature information stored in the feature database and input map information constituting the map database, the map information being generated based on the output feature information, or (2) generate map information constituting the map database on the basis of the feature information stored in the feature database.||05-13-2010|
