Watch Now: Subaru Eyesight Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist! If you have a Subaru, you may already be familiar with all the amazing features of their Eyesight system. We’ve shared before that Eyesight reduces rear-end collisions by 84% and crashes by 61% according to a Japanese study. Even more recently, we shared that Subaru plans to roll out an improved Eyesight system writing:
“Subaru is rolling out an updated version of its EyeSight safety system this summer in Japan. The update, dubbed “Touring Assist” will provide limited self-driving capabilities on the highway and during low-speed traffic jams. The new function is camera-based, allowing it to automatically steer a car around curves by tracking lane markings and the car ahead. Currently, it will only appear on the Japanese Lavorg wagon and the S4 sedan, a Japanese version of the WRX. The assist still requires a hand on the wheel and will begin making warning sounds if the driver lets go for 10 seconds and eventually the auto-steer function disengages.”
In a newly released video, Subaru further explains about its feature for Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist. Check out the full video below:
