Honda informed that the AI-powered intelligent driver-assistive technology will provide assistance to the drivers that are suited for an individual to reduce driving errors and risks and on the other hand, safe and sound network technology will connect all road users including people and mobility products through telecommunications that will make it possible to predict potential risks and help people avoid hazardous situations such as collisions before it actually occurs.
Honda also conveyed that to achieve the goal of a collision-free society, it will expand the introduction of Honda SENSING 360 which is a recently announced omnidirectional safety and driver-assistive system to all the models that will go on sales in major markets by 2030. The automaker also added that it will continue working to expand the application of a motorcycle detection function and further enhance the functions of its advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS).
The company also added that to explore the causes of driving errors that make a driver feel anxious, it is conducting research and development of technologies to understand the thought process of people while driving by using fMRI. Honda shared that the next-generation driver-assistive functions are currently under research and development.
