Honda Launches Accident Avoidance Support System
April 3, 2013—Honda has launched its accident avoidance support system, called City-Brake Active System.
The City-Brake Active system uses a laser radar installed in the upper part of the windscreen to detect if a collision is imminent when the vehicle is travelling at speeds less than 18 mph.
If the system identifies a high risk of collision, it will issue audio and visual warnings to the driver, and if the driver does not take action, the system will automatically apply the brakes.
The City-Brake Active System also protects drivers from accidental acceleration at speeds of less than 6 mph or from standstill.
Honda will introduce the system on the new Honda Fit, which will go on sale in Japan later this year.
