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.
