Honda announced yesterday that by 2030, all Honda cars sold globally will be equipped with Honda Sensing, and future models’ Sensing will also include motorcycle detection function. On top of that, all Honda cars sold in major markets will be equipped with the Level 3 autonomous driving-capable Honda Sensing 360, also by 2030.
Based on the global safety slogan “Safety for Everyone,” Honda is striving for a collision-free society for everyone sharing the road by pursuing the research and development of safety technologies from the perspective of both hardware and software.
Sensing in the latest Honda HR-V comes with Low Speed Follow function, helps in stop-go traffic, but you need to watch out for bikes
The Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistance function is already fitted on 99 percent of Honda’s new automobile models sold in Japan and the US, and 86 percent globally.
Cumulative sales of vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing now tops 14 million units.
Since Honda also makes motorcycles, the company considers it a responsibility to speed up the development and roll out motorcycle detection function for the Sensing feature fitted on Honda cars.
The company aims to reduce global traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and cars by half by 2030.
Currently, the basic Honda Sensing feature fitted on local models sold by Honda Malaysia is already capable of detecting children (taller than 1 metre). However it still can’t detect small vehicles like bicycles or motorcycles, at least not reliably.
