Subaru has revealed its next-generation EyeSight driver assistance system which now features color stereo cameras that deliver approximately 40 percent longer and wider detection range.

The new-generation of the EyeSight can also now fully function when the speed differential between the EyeSight equipped car and another vehicle is up to 30 mph, an increase from 19 mph for the current system. Using a pair of color cameras, the EyeSight system is mounted inside the vehicle on the upper edge of the windshield and the housing has been made 15 percent smaller than its predecessor.

By integrating adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning, EyeSight can detect vehicles in the car’s path at speeds under 30 mph, slowing the vehicle if needed or even bringing it to a complete stop to prevent a collision.

New technologies added to the Subaru lineup for the 2015 model year include Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
