Publication number: US20220014714A1
Application number: 17/448,946

A vehicular control system includes a forward sensing sensor and a forward viewing camera disposed at a vehicle. The forward sensing sensor has an antenna array that emits a radio frequency (RF) beam at least forward of the vehicle. The antenna array include at least four antennas. An electronic control unit (ECU) includes an image processor operable to process image data captured by the forward viewing camera. The system, responsive at least in part to processing by the image processor of image data captured by the forward viewing camera, determines a weather condition at the vehicle. The system adjusts the RF beam emitted by the antenna array of the forward sensing sensor based at least in part on the determined weather condition. The system may adjust transmission power of the RF beam and/or beam pattern of the RF beam based at least in part on the determined weather condition.

Application number: 16/949,313

A vehicular driving assist system includes a plurality of lidar sensors having respective fields of sensing exterior the vehicle, with the fields of sensing of first and second lidar sensors partially overlapping at an overlap region. The lidar sensors emit a respective pattern of light and provide a respective output to an ECU based on sensed light that is reflected by objects present in the field of sensing of the respective lidar sensor. The pattern of light emitted by the second lidar sensor differs from the pattern of light emitted by the first lidar sensor. The ECU determines misalignment of the second lidar sensor relative to the first lidar sensor based at least in part on the light sensed by each of the lidar sensors that is reflected by an object present in the overlap region when the respective pattern of light is emitted by the respective lidar sensor.

A method of generating images for display includes equipping a vehicle with a vehicular vision system that includes a rearward viewing camera, an ECU and a display. The camera captures image data as the vehicle moves forward or rearward. The ECU includes an image processor that processes multiple frames of captured image data. The ECU generates, for each frame of image data captured by the camera, a left side image portion and a right side image portion. The ECU combines the left side image portions of multiple frames of captured image data and the right side image portions of multiple frames of captured image data. The combined left side image portions and the combined right side image portions are displayed at the display for viewing by the vehicle driver during a parking maneuver of the vehicle.
