Title: VEHICLE CONTROL APPARATUS
Abstract:
In the present invention, an (ECU 10) installed in a vehicle (1) is configured so as to detect a preceding vehicle (3) ahead of a host vehicle (1), set, in at least a portion of the surroundings of the preceding vehicle (3), a speed distribution region (40, 50) defining the distribution of the allowable upper limit (Vlim) of the relative speed of the vehicle (1) with respect to the preceding vehicle (3) in the travel direction of the vehicle (1), and perform travel control to prevent the relative speed of the vehicle (1) with respect to the preceding vehicle (3) from exceeding the allowable upper limit Vlim within the speed distribution region (40, 50). If the preceding vehicle (3) is located on a curved road (5), the speed distribution region (50) is set so that the equal relative speed line (d, e, f) connecting points having the same allowable upper limit (Vlim) is curved so as to correspond to the curvature of the curved road (5) in regions flanking the speed distribution region.
