30 May Subaru Embracing Active Safety Technology with EyeSight®
Australia will have lesser road accidents in the future, thanks to the new EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology of Subaru. Embracing this Active Safety Technology, the brand will give consumers more confidence while driving, with more eyes on the road and an additional foot to hit the brake.
What is EyeSight?
EyeSight® is an advanced safety system equipped with dual color cameras, which are placed strategically near the rearview mirror to have a full vision in front of the vehicle and anticipate possible dangers. It is packed with different powerful features, combined to provide drivers with impeccable road awareness for maximum protection. The EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and its complete features are available in select 2018 Subaru vehicles, which include:
- Subaru WRX
Subaru EyeSight® Features
Adaptive Cruise Control – Maintaining an ample distance from the vehicle in front is one of the key safety rules on the road. EyeSight® will help with this. It will automatically reduce the car’s speed once it crosses the safe distance limit, which will pre-determined and saved by car owners into the system.
Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist – this active safety technology feature will give a warning if the vehicle is moving away from its lane. EyeSight® will keep track of the lane markings on the road, and when the car sways from its lane despite the warning, it will activate Lane Keep Assist. This will gently help stir the vehicle back to its lane.
Pre-Collision Breaking – Remove vehicle frontal impacts from your worries with the help of pre-collision breaking. This safety feature will alert you and show a visual warning if another car is in close proximity. It will also automatically activate the brakes to full-stop if needed. If you manage to step on the brake but the force is not enough, pre-collision breaking will apply an additional push to prevent collisions.
Pre-Collision Throttle Management – With the help of two extra eyes from EyeSight®, any object in front of your vehicle can be detected. During situations when the car is going to hit something, like a barrier or a vehicle, it will help lower the engine throttle and acceleration so that the resulting impact force and damage will be reduced. Visual and sound warnings will also be activated so that you can immediately assess the situation.
These EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology features are results of Subaru’s current effort towards semi-autonomous driving. All 2018 Subaru models with this new active safety technology have the highest front crash prevention rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a U.S. non-profit auto insurance organization.
Soon, EyeSight® will be standard on all Subaru cars. However, don’t expect the brand to pursue full autonomous driving soon just like other car manufacturers. Subaru is currently focusing to make its collision prevention technology the best.
