Title: DRIVING ASSISTANCE DEVICE FOR VEHICLES AND ONBOARD COMPUTER
Abstract:
When a moving object which has darted out from the shadow of a given object present around a vehicle moves towards a determination region set around the vehicle, a system ECU (9) executes collision avoidance operation in the following manner. Namely, collision avoidance operation is executed at the early timing of after the moving object has been detected by a camera (6) but before the moving object and the given object are detected by a radar (5), specifically, when the radar (5) has detected an object expanding toward the determination region. As a result, unnecessary execution of collision avoidance operation is avoided to the extent possible while swiftly executing collision avoidance operation in cases in which a moving object which has darted out from the shadow of an object moves toward the determination region.
