Subaru’s new EyeSight technology is an auto-industry game changer”?, from Business Insider.
We have reached a new phase in automotive safety. For several decades, safety features have centered on reducing the chance of serious injury or death in a crash. Things like airbags, anti-lock brakes, and crumple zones assume collisions are inevitable. Now we’re on the cusp of dramatically reducing that probability.
Subaru has added this amazing technology called EyeSight to its cars.
Cameras mounted near the top of the car’s windshield watch for approaching obstacles and warn the driver. If the driver doesn’t respond, the car stops itself.
The Subaru Legacy and Outback equipped with EyeSight both earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top crash-avoidance rating recently, but here’s the game-changing part: the IIHS — the same agency that helped make crash test dummies famous — is now testing crash avoidance.
