SUBARU PUTS SAFETY FIRST
Subaru has received the President’s Award from Japan Techno-Economics Society (JATES) for the development of its EyeSight driver assist system at the society’s sixth Technology Management and Innovation Awards. The award encourages innovation in Japan, leading to economic growth and stronger industrial competitiveness. EyeSight achieved a world first in using solely stereo camera technology to provide a driver assist system incorporating features such as adaptive cruise control and pre-collision braking that detects cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycles in the vehicle’s path. EyeSight has received strong thirdparty safety ratings including a maximum ASV++ preventative safety rating under the Japanese NCAP preventative safety assessment programme.
