SUBARU has developed EyeSight, which has Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), “Pre-Collision Braking System”. The concept is to minimize collision damage or if conditions allow, prevent the collision. Through a trial-and-error process, SUBARU has, and continues to enhance the performance of Pre-Collision Braking System. The latest Pre-Collision Braking System was refined to two points. The first is to hasten the reaction to crossing pedestrians coming out from behind obstacles to heighten the speed reduction effect. The other point is to improve the reaction to night-time pedestrians. The effectiveness has been raised by suppressing the drop in the recognition performance caused by peripheral darkness or the color of pedestrians' clothes. These improvements will offer a high level of safety. This report also describes details of traffic accident data, and comparing results of “with EyeSight” and “without EyeSight”.
