We’ve talked about our Subaru EyeSight technology before, and we’re going to again right now. Australian researcher, Canstar Blue, has given Subaru an innovation excellence award for EyeSight.
This new-generation safety system is being recognized all over the world, and this is just the latest in awards and recognition for the Subaru-patented technology.
Stereo cameras mounted at the top of the windshield, capture real-time images of the road ahead. This is a great asset to the driver who, as you know, is prone to miss things on the road or cars breaking up ahead of them. These cameras help the car and driver react to these unfortunate situations and help prevent accidents and impact damage to your vehicle. Need we mention that it is also helping reduce insurance premiums?
Occupant safety has and will always be a top priority for Subaru, and since EyeSight technology was released in 2012, Subaru has taken home awards and high scores from the IIHS here in North America, and even scored a perfect 6-point rating in Front Crash Prevention (FCP) tests.
With driver distraction being one of the main causes for accidents on the road, Megan Doyle, Canstar Blue’s General Manager, said: “Subaru’s EyeSight could help prevent some of the needless collisions that occur on our roads every day. Subaru has created what is essentially an extra pair of eyes, alerting a driver to potential collisions and helping to mitigate the consequences of them. We applaud Subaru for its innovation and dedication to improving the safety of both road-users and pedestrians.”
If you want to see this technology in action for yourself, all you have to do is stop by Subaru of Niagara, and we will do the rest for you! We can’t wait to see you!
