Eyesight Wins Technology Award

Eyesight Wins Technology Award

Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist system has won a prestigious Japanese government science and technology award.

The five Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) engineers who developed EyeSight received the prize for Science and Technology 2012, Development Category, from Japan’s Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

The awards honour those who have made noteworthy contributions either to the research and development of science and technology, or to its public understanding.

It is the first time Subaru has won the award.

The FHI representatives recognised in the award all work in the Vehicle Research and Experiment Department, Subaru Engineering Division.

EyeSight uses stereo camera technology to provide driver assistance in a variety of conditions.

The features include Pre-Collision Braking that can stop the vehicle if it detects the risk of frontal collision.

FHI successfully developed EyeSight to use one sensor which not only controls the driving support system but also measures the distance, the speed difference and the relative positions between the front of the vehicle and another car.

Since its introduction in Japan, this user-friendly system has been highly praised for a good balance between its affordable pricing and excellent utility.

In New Zealand, EyeSight will be introduced on high grade 2013 Legacy and Outback models late this year.
