Title: TRAVEL CONTROL DEVICE, TRAVEL CONTROL METHOD, RECORDING MEDIUM, AND AUTONOMOUS TRAVEL DEVICE
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a travel control device with which it is possible, by an autonomous travel device comprising an information detection means which detects information on the surroundings of a vehicle, to efficiently carry out a monitoring activity during travel. Provided is a travel control device (100) which controls driving of an autonomous travel vehicle (101), characterized in that the travel control device (100) comprises a control unit (122) on an external server (102) side, which controls the driving of the autonomous travel vehicle (101), wherein the control unit (122) comprises: a monitor information acquisition unit which acquires position information of the autonomous travel vehicle (101) and orientation information of the autonomous travel vehicle (101) as information of the autonomous travel vehicle (101), and which acquires detection region information of an information detection means in operation as information of the information detection means; and a monitor driving control unit which, during the travel of the autonomous travel vehicle (101), and on the basis of the information of the autonomous travel vehicle (101) and of the information of the information detection means, performs control such that a region which has not been detected by the information detection means of the autonomous travel device will be detected in the next travel period.
