Title: TRAVEL CONTROL METHOD AND TRAVEL CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
This travel control device comprises a recognition unit (110) that recognizes the dividing line of a lane in which the host vehicle is traveling, a vehicle control unit (120) which performs lane keeping control to ensure that the lateral position of the host vehicle with respect to the dividing line is a predetermined position, a radar (15) which detects vehicles traveling in front of the host vehicle, and a release unit (130) which, if a dividing line is not recognized by the recognition unit (110), releases the lane keeping control after a predetermined time has elapsed since the dividing line is no longer recognized. The predetermined time is shorter when the distance between the host vehicle and a vehicle in front is longer than a predetermined value than when the distance is shorter than a predetermined value.
