Beware : a Subura is looking at you in 3D !
Subaru began fitting a stereoscopic “EyeSight” system to some Japanese market cars nearly two years ago and has just announced a major upgrade.
Subaru’s stereo camera driving assist system. Based on the EyeSight system introduced in Japan in May 2008, the safety device was upgraded with new features to improve driving assist functions, automatic braking management system and user-friendliness.
By using two cameras, one each side of the rear view mirror, the system can judge distances and hence assist with a number of driving functions, such as all-speed range adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking management and lane departure warning. Recent developments with its 3D image processing engine mean it has become far more adept at recognizing pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.
