2019 Subaru Forester Review


When it arrives this fall, the new Subaru Forester will be the best compact crossover on the market you can get. The familiar styling and other low-key specs hide the Foresters true form as one of the best products that Subaru or any of its competitors has put out in quite some time.

Subaru EyeSight Father Returns in Stereo Vision

ITD Lab, a 20-person startup based here, is pitching “Intelligent Stereo Camera (ISC)” technology for applications ranging from ADAS, autonomous vehicles, and drones to construction machines and industrial robots. ITD Lab’s secret weapon is CTO Keiji Saneyoshi, a father of Subaru’s EyeSight. Saneyoshi was the principal engineer behind Subaru’s original stereo vision system, “Stereo Range Imager.” Saneyoshi’s team at Subaru then developed the first driver-assist system to use only stereo… Read More →
