Later this year, the all-new Honda Legend will take to the streets of Japan with the Honda SENSING driver-assistive system. Honda plans to expand the technology’s availability on additional models and into more countries.
The development of Honda’s new and improved technology reflects the automaker’s efforts to eliminate motor vehicle accidents, part of its “Safety for Everyone” global safety concept.
Six new features were added to the system. It is now composed of a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Pedestrian Collision Mitigation Steering System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Traffic Sign Recognition, False Start Prevention Function, and Lead Car Departure Notification System.
In addition, the system’s radar and camera were fine-tuned to enable more precise performance. A new millimeter-wave radar is installed in the vehicle’s front grille. It has the ability to detect objects, even those with a low radio wave rate, while the monocular camera features improved recognition from up to 60 meters away. These two sensors make technologies like Honda’s pioneering Pedestrian Collision possible.
