Honda participates at the autonomous driving program
At the 25th World ITS Congress in Copenhagen, Honda presented its intelligent transport systems: advanced and next-generation products focused on virtuous vehicle monitoring, communication between connected cars, active safety and autonomous driving.
In particular, Honda Sensing is the package of active safety technologies and autonomous driving that uses a combination of radar and video information to alert and assist the driver in potentially dangerous situations.
Systems include: automatic emergency braking to avoid potential collisions; predictive cruise control capable of adapting to vehicles that "cut off the road" on high-speed routes and lane keeping capable of automatically performing small movements so as to keep the car always in the middle of the lane. Honda also participates in the European autonomous driving program.
Since the debut of autonomous driving technologies in 2013, Honda has explored how these systems could help motorcyclists, motorists and pedestrians to cooperate with each other through communication and detection technologies, thus offering safer and more practical services without compromising the pleasure of driving.
Already in the 2017 edition of the Congress, the Japanese carmaker had turned the spotlight on the important potential of the V2X technologies that allow a perfectly integrated communication between vehicles to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety.
