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.

The Jeep Compass is a companion piece to the Jeep Patriot. The compact crossovers share underpinnings, but while the Patriot is styled with more quintessentially Jeep cues, the Compass is themed more like a rally-ready hatchback. Like the Patriot, the Compass is a rival for vehicles ...

Honda and Takata Allegedly Knew About Deaths, Injuries from Exploding Airbags for Years Before Recall Expansion

Sep 15 2014 12:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A New York Times report says that the faulty airbags that can cause metal fragments to be expelled in a crash and which led to simultaneous recalls from several automakers earlier this summer weren’t taken seriously for years despite horrifying injuries. And while Honda was one of 11 automakers sharing the same airbag supplier, that company in particular is alleged to have known about the problem well before the others and to have ...

Sep 15 2014 1:02am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

Though the 2014 Subaru Crosstrek XV Hybrid is their first foray into the world of gasoline-electric powertrains, Subaru has been the green choice for many outdoorsy types for some time. Take a trip to any national park in the country, count all the Outbacks and Foresters, and tell me if I’m lying. With increased demand for higher fuel economy – and impending CAFE regulations right around the corner – it seems a good time for Subaru to st ...

Video: Cadillac Escalade HPE550 Vs. Stock Version

Sep 14 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade is one of largest and boxiest full-size SUVs nowadays. I’m not saying it is not stylish, but that thing is huge, heavy and seemingly slow, but once its 420-horsepower V-8 comes to life, the Escalade is anything but slow. In fact, it takes only 6.4 seconds to charge from naught to 60 mph, which is faster than a Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S, and it reaches the end of a quarter-mile strip in 14.8 seconds.On the other hand, we know that some potential buyers woul ...

Sep 13 2014 12:44am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We’re back at Northern California’s Thunderhill Raceway, where the temperatures hit the three-digit mark, the penalty laps were handed out in generous quantities to many a BMW and Honda, and the largest number of teams to be accepted into a LeMons race (thanks to the recent expansion of the Thunderhill course and resulting room for more cars) showed up: 242 entries!
