Subaru’s EyeSight system is preventing vehicles from striking pedestrians, a new Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) analysis shows.
Subaru’s EyeSight performs several functions, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lead vehicle start alert. It also includes pedestrian detection, enabling the system to brake automatically for pedestrians in addition to other vehicles. The system relies on two cameras mounted to the interior roof behind the windshield, a set-up that leads to lower repair costs than other front crash prevention systems that rely on equipment embedded in the vehicle exterior.
The new study found that EyeSight cut the rate of likely pedestrian-related insurance claims by 35 percent.
