A traveling environment recognition device capable of accurately recognizing a traveling environment of a vehicle. An occupancy grid map that stores an occupancy probability of each obstacle to traveling of the own vehicle for each cell of the occupancy grid map is generated, and the occupancy probability for each cell is updated according to Bayesian inference. More specifically, for each cell of the occupancy grid map, the occupancy probability calculated from information from a radar device, the occupancy probability calculated from information from a communication device, and the occupancy probability calculated from information from a storage device that stores map data are blended to provide an occupancy probability of the obstacles to traveling of the own vehicle, which leads to more accurate traveling environment recognition.
