Title: VEHICLE SURROUNDING SITUATION RECOGNIZING DEVICE AND VEHICLE CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
Providing a vehicle surrounding situation recognizing device and a vehicle control device capable of inhibiting deterioration in accuracy of forward recognition of a vehicle after a primary collision. The vehicle surrounding situation recognizing device includes a radar mounted on a front part of a vehicle and configured to transmit an electromagnetic wave forward of the vehicle, receive a reflective wave of the electromagnetic wave to detect a situation in front of the vehicle, and output as radar information; an image generating means mounted within a vehicle interior of the vehicle and configured to generate an image in front of the vehicle and output as image information; a recognizing means configured to recognize the situation in front of the vehicle based on the radar information and the image information; and a collision detecting means configured to detect that the vehicle collides with an obstacle outside the vehicle, wherein the recognizing means recognizes the situation in front of the vehicle not based on the radar information but based on the image information at the time the collision is detected (step S10-Y) (steps S20, S30, and S90).
