Honda has a goal of achieving zero traffic collision fatalities by 2050 and it’s announced that its new Honda Sensing 360 system will help it get there. The updated suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies will have an expanded sensory range around the vehicle to remove blind spots and help avoid collisions.
The Honda Sensing 360 system adds five radar units to the exterior, which work in conjunction with the existing monocular camera that’s used by the current Honda Sensing system. The Honda Sensing 360 system brings new driver-assistance tech features, like the Collision Mitigation Braking system that can automatically apply the brakes if it detects a possible collision when making a right or left turn.
Front Cross Traffic Warning prevents the driver from colliding with an approaching vehicle and Lane Change Collision Mitigation helps prevent a collision with a vehicle in an adjacent lane. Active Lane Change Assist helps steer the vehicle into a new lane when the driver puts on the turn signal. Lastly Cornering Speed Assist works with the adaptive cruise control to automatically adjust the speed of the vehicle when reaching a curve in the road.
Honda Sensing 360 will launch in China in 2022 and will be standard on all models in the U.S. by 2030.
