System helps drivers avoid accidents by applying the brakes

Subaru has announced that it has made a significant update to the EyeSight driver assistance system. This system uses two cameras that are mounted in the top of the windshield. These cameras look ahead of the vehicle for other cars and obstacles.

The new system uses color stereo cameras and has a 40% longer and wider detection range. The new system is able to work at a higher speed difference than the older version supporting a 30mph speed difference between the Subaru and cars in front of it.

When the system detects an impending collision, it is able to apply the brakes. It will also warn if the driver veers out of their lane. The EyeSight system has been available for two years on Subaru models. The new cameras are not only better performing, but are also 15% smaller than previous versions.

Is Driving a Certain Car Your Ticket to Traffic Court?

Sep 30 2014 1:49pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Look, just because you drive a Subaru WRX doesn't mean you're more likely to be the type of person who exceeds the speed limit or breaks other traffic laws. OK, it actually does mean that, but we're not the ones saying it, Insurance.com is. The auto-insurance rate-comparison website analyzed online quote info from more than half a million drivers and more than 500 car models between January 2013 and July 2014, and identified the cars most likely to be used in the commissi ...

Subaru Forester

Sep 29 2014 6:11pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

In the Subaru lineup, it sits between the hatchback-derived XV Crosstrek and the large mid-size Outback. There are f ...
