Subaru to Debut “EyeSight” Driving Assist System in North America

Press Release : Subaru Debuts New EyeSight™ System

Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, today announced that it will debut its “EyeSight” driving assist system in North America in the summer of 2012.  The EyeSight is the first device in the world to solely use stereo camera technology to detect objects in front of the car such as pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles, including “Pre-Collision Braking Control” as well as “Adaptive Cruise Control with all-speed range tracking function”.

The EyeSight system was first launched in Japan in 2010 and then introduced in the Australian market in the end of 2011.  This highly praised system will make its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show and feature in 2013 Subaru Legacy and Outback models as an optional feature.

EyeSight uses two charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras developed by Subaru.  EyeSight is mounted inside the car on the upper edge of the windshield, thus reducing the potential for damage that could occur in bumper-mounted systems, such as radar.  The EyeSight system processes stereo images to identify the vehicles traveling in front, as well as obstacles, traffic lanes and other items. The video information is relayed to the EyeSight computer, which is also networked with the car’s braking system and electronic throttle control.  Below speeds of approximately 19mph, EyeSight is capable of detecting pedestrians in the vehicle’s path and can activate in order to mitigate or even avoid the collision. Under certain circumstances, Eyesight is able to bring the car to a complete stop, thus avoiding a collision.

The EyeSight system includes “Pre-Collision Braking Control”, “Pre-Collision Brake Assist System”, “Adaptive Cruise Control with all-speed range tracking function” and “Lane Sway Warning”.
