New Subaru car utilises breakthrough vision technology

By Adrian Galbreth

Over the last few years, thousands of developments have been made in the automobile world, providing drivers with the best possible sight lines in their vehicles to boost safety.

Now, it appears that Subaru has taken this to the next level, thanks to its new EyeSight Driver-Assist System.

The company's 2013 Subaru Outback and Legacy models feature the system, which integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning.

According to the manufacturer, EyeSight uses a stereo camera design developed provide a detection angle wider than that of radar-based systems and is projected to be one of the most affordable such technologies available in the market.

Driver safety and the need for motorists to have good vision has been a major issue lately, with a number of road safety organisations backing calls to make the testing of drivers' vision more stringent to benefit other drivers, pedestrians and the motorists themselves.
