Advanced safety technology


ubaru EyeSight
integrates adaptive
cruise control,
pre-collision braking,
and vehicle lane departure
warning. The technology, which
can also detect obstacles in
front of a parked car and limit
potential damage in an impact,
is available across Subaru’s
lineup for 2017.

Combining safety and
convenience features, the
Subaru EyeSight system is
one of the most affordable
such technologies available in
the United States. EyeSight
uses two charge-coupled
device (CCD) cameras
developed by Subaru.
EyeSight is mounted inside
the car on the upper edge of
the windshield, thus reducing
the potential for damage
that could occur in bumpermounted systems, such as
radar. The EyeSight system
processes stereo images
to identify the vehicles
traveling in front, as well
as obstacles, traffic lanes
and other items. The video
information is relayed to the
EyeSight computer, which is
also networked with the car’s
braking system and electronic
throttle control.
Below speeds of
approximately 19mph,
EyeSight is capable of

Subaru’s EyeSight safety and driver assist system is one of the most advanced and affordable on the market today.

detecting pedestrians in
the vehicle’s path and can
activate in order to mitigate
or even avoid the collision.
Under certain circumstances,
Eyesight is able to bring the
car to a complete stop, thus
avoiding a collision.
At relative speeds under
approximately 19 mph,
EyeSight’s Pre-Collision
Braking System can detect
obstacles in the car’s path
and, if the driver has not
applied the brakes in time,
the system can do so to slow
the vehicle or bring it to a
full stop to help avoid the
potential collision.

Pre-Collision Braking is
always on in the background
to act like a second set of
eyes for the driver. It can also
be turned off temporarily for
off-road or rough road travel.
At relative speeds above
approximately 19 mph,
EyeSight can apply the
brakes when an object is
detected, and will attempt to
brake if the driver takes no
evasive action, or does not
brake appropriately. In this
way it will mitigate potential
damage from a collision. The
system, which can recognize
programmed objects such
as vehicles, motorcyclists,
bicyclists and pedestrians, can
help mitigate collision damage.

By monitoring traffic lane
markers and lines, the Subaru
EyeSight system can detect
if the car begins to wander
outside the intended lane
without a turn signal being
used, or if the car begins to
sway within the travel lane.
Using the turn signal cancels
the warning
Intended for freeway use,
Eyesight’s Adaptive Cruise
Control system can maintain
a safe distance from the
vehicle in front, braking and/
or accelerating the car as
needed to maintain the

driver-selected target speed
and traveling distance.
Adaptive Cruise Control
is operational from 1-87
mph and can fully brake the
vehicle to a stop if the system
“locks on” to a vehicle ahead.
As an added convenience,
Adaptive Cruise Control
assists the driver in heavy
“stop and go” freeway traffic
by maintaining distance
from the vehicle ahead. This
feature can help reduce driver
fatigue, which can therefore
help keep the driver alert.
In heavy traffic conditions,
EyeSight will also alert the
driver when the vehicle
ahead has moved if he or she
doesn’t react within several
seconds. The technology can
also help reduce collision
damages by cutting the
throttle when it senses an
obstacle in front, but the
accelerator pedal continues to
be pushed. The system is also
effective when a driver shifts
into ‘Drive’ inadvertently
instead of ‘Reverse’ when
backing out of a parking
space. The stereo camera
design of EyeSight provides
a detection angle wider than
that of radar-based systems.
