Honda reveals new 360-degree safety and driver assistance system
Honda Motor Company has unveiled the new Honda SENSING 360 omnidirectional driver-assistance system, which removes blind spots around the vehicle and contributes to collision avoidance.
Honda SENSING 360 has evolved from the previous system and now features an expanded range not only in the front and rear but omnidirectionally around the vehicle. The application of the new technology will commence in 2022.
The system realised 360-degree sensing by adding a total of five units of millimetre-wave radar in front and at each corner of the vehicle, in addition to the monocular camera used by the current Honda SENSING. This covers blind spots around the vehicle which are difficult for the driver to visually check.
Key features include advancement of collision mitigation braking system, front cross-traffic warning, lane change collision mitigation, active lane change assist, and cornering speed assist.
Honda has been pursuing the research and development of safety technologies from the perspective of both hardware and software, striving for a collision-free society for everyone sharing the road.
Since its introduction in 2014, the Honda SENSING advanced safety and driver-assistance system has been further advancing its functionality and expanding its applications to mass production models.
