While Subaru cars have earned great safety accolades, they’ve introduced a new system that uses a stereo camera setup to detect potential hazards. The Subaru EyeSight system is an integral part of a pre-collision braking system designed to detect objects ahead and if those objects are 18.5 mph or less the vehicle will stop after not getting any response from the driver following an alarm.
The EyeSight system is also part of an adaptive cruise control system when the cruise is activated since the system can detect vehicles ahead and will aid in setting a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. If the object ahead is moving faster than the previously mentioned 18.5mph threshold, the car will slow versus applying the brakes.
EyeSight should be available in Japan in the coming months and will likely make it to the states in the near future.
