Publication number: US20220027640A1
Application number: 17/496,842

Abstract:
In a road type determination apparatus, an image information acquiring unit acquires image information in which an image of a travel road on which a vehicle is traveling is captured. A scene determining unit determines a traveling scene of the travel road based on the image information. An ordinary road likelihood calculating unit calculates an ordinary road likelihood that indicates that a type of the travel road of the vehicle is an ordinary road based on the traveling scene. A limited-access road likelihood calculating unit calculates a limited-access road likelihood that indicates that the type of the travel road of the vehicle is a limited-access road based on the traveling scene. A type determining unit determines the type of the travel road of the vehicle based on the ordinary road likelihood and the limited-access road likelihood.

Application number: 17/450,277

Abstract:
A SOx concentration acquiring apparatus of an internal combustion engine of the invention acquires sensor currents as SOx concentration currents after a sensor voltage reaches an oxygen decreasing voltage in a reoxidation voltage decreasing control, acquires the sensor current as a base current when the sensor voltage is equal to or lower than the oxygen decreasing voltage in the reoxidation voltage decreasing control, acquires an integration value of differences between the base current and each of the SOx concentration currents, and acquires a SOx concentration of an exhaust gas discharged from an internal combustion engine on the basis of the integration value.
