Semi-Autonomous Driving System Announced by Honda

Honda is getting ready to launch a new advanced driver-assistance system.

Honda Sensing is an advanced driver assistance system that will come on the all-new Legend in Japan before the end of this year before heading to other models in the future. Developed with safety in mind in hopes of helping prevent accidents and collisions, the Sensing system consists of two types of sensors with different characteristics: one is a millimeter-wave radar inside the front grille, while the other is a monocular camera mounted on the upper, inside part of the windshield.

As a result, the system is capable of six new functions including Collision Mitigating Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Pedestrian Collision Mitigation Steering, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Traffic Sign Recognition, False Start Prevention and a Lead Car Departure Notification System. The Japanese automaker also said that the system is capable of not only recognizing its surroundings, but also the intentions of the driver and conditions of the vehicle.
