Subaru Driver Assist Technology Explained-Safety for your family at Perkins Essex
At Perkins Subaru Essex, we believe in all- around safety. An important part of that is pre-collision safety:making every effort to ensure an accident never happens. That's why Subaru created EYESIGHT ,it's cutting -edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, Eyesight uses two stereo cameras capturing three-dimentional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human eye. More accurate that traditional camera and sensor technologies, Eyesight usue images from both cameras to precisely determine shape, speed and distance, meaning it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. When a potential hazard is identified, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if neccassary, to help avoid an accident. With excellent safety performance, Eyesight gives the driver ultimate peace of mind.
Adaptive Cruise Control on Subaru cars.
Adaptive cruise control allows the driver to set vehicle speed and distance to the car in front. It constantly monitors distance and speed then adjusts the engine, transmission and brakes accordingly to maintain speed in line with the traffic flow. Designed for use on motorways and similar roads, Adpative Cruise Control imporves driver comfort and convenience on long drives.
Lane Sway and Departure Warning.
Lane Sway and Departure Warning will alert the driver with a visual and audible warning if the vehicle sways or departs its lane without indicating.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
It's easy to become distracted when waiting in stationary traffic. Eyesight will prompt the driver to notice that vehicles in front have started moving again with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.
Lane Keep Assist
Lane keep assist will offer gentle steering control if the vehicle is about to deviate from its lane at apporximately 40 mph or above.
Pre-Collision Braking System.
Pre-Collision Braking System activates visual and audible warnings to alert the driver of a potential collision. If the driver fails to take evasive action, the brakes will be applied automatically to either prevent an accident entirely or reduce the severity of an impact depending on speed. If the driver brakes but not apply enough pressure, the system will increase braking force.
Pre-Collision Throttle Management.
If the car is parked facing an obstacle, Eyesight will give the driver a visual and audible warning if they accidentally select drive instead of reverse. The system will also cut engine output to help avoid a frontal collision.
