Subaru New EyeSight Collision Detection System

Subaru introducing a new version of their camera-based object detection system, simply called the New EyesSight, which is now upgraded with stereo camera, Pre-Collision Braking Control, Pre-Collision Brake Assist System and Adaptive Cruise control with all-speed range tracking function. In essence, this system detects any object in front of the car and can even apply the brakes to avoid hitting them, if you were reluctant to do so!

This is more or less the same system Mercedes introduced in the S-class like 7 years ago, and Volvo also is using a similar technology in the new S60 sedan. It’s very good that now such advanced safety features are becoming available in more affordable cars as well.

Pre-Collision Braking Control

When the vehicle comes close or very close to a car or an object in front of it, an alarm sets off to warn the driver of a potential collision hazard. If the speed difference between the driver’s vehicle and the vehicle in front is below 30 km/h, and if there is no action from the driver to slow down or stop its vehicle, the system will automatically slow down the car or stop the car in order to avoid collision or reduce collision damage.

If the speed difference between the two moving vehicles is above 30km/h, the system will automatically reduce the vehicle speed, thereby reducing the risk of collision or collision damage.

Pre-Collision Brake Assist System

When there is a potential risk of frontal collision, the system will also identify sudden braking by the driver. If detected, it automatically activates the pre-collision brake assist function, thus avoiding collision or reducing collision damage.

Adaptive Cruise control with all-speed range tracking function

It enables the vehicle to cruise safely on a motorway, keeping the vehicle at a safe distance to the vehicle in front. In slow traffic or traffic jams, the automatic emergency braking function – stopping the vehicle and holding it still until the vehicle in front starts moving again – was much improved compared to the current system.

*Efficiency of these functions may be affected by abnormal road surface, severe or extreme weather and are subject to the vehicle’s condition.

Subaru is committed to developing vehicles that provide ultimate safety and peace of mind, under the development concept of further pursuing Subaru’s exciting, reliable, and environmentally responsible driving. The new Eyesight advanced driver assistance system actively manages various safety functions and further enhances Subaru drivers’ all-round safety driving experience. The system will be available on the Legacy models from the middle of May in Japan.
