- Honda is adding a slew of new features to its driver-assistance system known as Sensing 360 as part of a goal to eliminate fatal traffic collisions involving Honda by 2050.
- According to Honda, nearly 7 million vehicles on the road today are equipped with Honda Sensing 360 and its twin AcuraWatch. Honda’s new plan would make the technology standard on all models by 2030.
- The next generation of Honda Sensing will begin appearing in China in 2024 and the U.S. a year or more later.;
Honda is preparing for a major overhaul to its driver-assist technology known as Sensing 360. It first introduced the Sensing 360 technology to the U.S. in 2014 by adding it to the 2015 CR-V and by giving the 2015 Acura TLX its own version called AcuraWatch. Honda today announced a plan to expand the technology throughout the Honda ecosystem. The next generation of Sensing 360 will begin appearing in China in 2024 and in the U.S. sometime in the second half of the decade, before becoming standard on all models by 2030.
Watching for “Abnormal Conditions”
In April 2021, Honda CEO Toshihiro Mibe announced a goal for Honda to achieve zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda vehicles by 2050. The new Sensing 360 technology increases the sensor range surrounding the vehicle. It will also feature new tech which will detect abnormal conditions occurring to the driver or the vehicle’s surroundings, kicking in when necessary to avoid a collision. The system will also be able to bring the vehicle to a stop if a driver is unresponsive to a takeover request when the car is in hands-free driving mode. Much like other automated systems, if the driver does not respond to repeated warnings, the vehicle will flash its lights and honk while bringing itself to a halt in its lane.
The company is also coming out with next-generation Sensing Elite technology, which will use artificial intelligence (AI) for hands-free driving and such tasks as automatic parking or getting the car out of a home garage. Honda has not given any details on the release of the upgraded Sensing Elite but has said that the AI grows and learns from experiences to improve over time.
