Seeing is believing
Subaru has broadened its EyeSight driver assist system to the North American market. According to Subaru, EyeSight is the first device in the world to solely use stereo camera technology to detect objects in front of the car. These objects include pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles. Incorporated in the system are Pre-Collision Braking Control and Adaptive Cruise Control with all-speed range tracking and Lane Sway Warning. Sales of EyeSight models have accounted for 9 in every 10 Legacy and Outback sales in Japan, where it was launched.
Meanwhile, the jointly developed Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 (below) has started trundling off a production line once used for Subaru’s minicar range. The same facility is also expected to start producing the Subaru Impreza by next year.
