Title: MODE SWITCHING CONTROL DEVICE, MODE SWITCHING CONTROL SYSTEM, MODE SWITCHING CONTROL METHOD AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to allow a driver mode to be switched at a suitable location and to enhance stability. This mode switching control device controls mode switching. The mode switching is a process in which a drive mode of a vehicle is switched between a manual drive mode and an automatic drive mode. The mode switching control device is provided with an acquisition unit and a calculation unit. The acquisition unit acquires, from a sensor which monitors the surroundings of a vehicle, sensed data that represents the surrounding circumstances in a switching section set for the mode switching. The calculation unit calculates, on the basis of the sensed data, a mode switching recommendation location at which the mode switching is to be recommended in the switching section.
