Honda showcases latest intelligent transportation technology

Honda is currently showcasing the latest developments in its intelligent transportation technology at the 2014 ITS World Congress in Detroit.

Activities include a demonstration of Honda’s automated driving technology, automated freeway merging, exiting and lane changing as well as a unique vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) “virtual tow” capability for assisting drivers in distress.

Honda is also highlighting advancements in “V2X” technologies such as vehicle-to-pedestrian/bicycle (V2P/B) and vehicle-to-motorcycle (V2M).

“The creation and deployment of advanced, intelligent transportation systems represent the new frontier in the effort to one day eliminate traffic collisions, injuries and fatalities,” said Frank Paluch, president of Honda R&D Americas Inc. “We will demonstrate our vision for realizing Honda’s dream of a collision-free society by showcasing our continued technological innovations in active safety, connected and automated vehicle technology.”

The pursuit of a collision-free society is part of Honda’s global safety concept of “Safety for Everyone,” and the company’s efforts to use technology to provide enhanced protection for automobile occupants, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and other road users. This includes numerous initiatives in the areas of active and passive safety, pedestrian injury mitigation, motorcycle rider safety and collision compatibility.

Honda is also showcasing advanced driver-assist and early-stage automated driving technologies that help improve drivers’ situational awareness, such as Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Collision Mitigation Braking System and Road Departure Mitigation.

The company’s newest offering, the 2015 Acura TLX, uses the cooperative sensing of monocular camera and millimeter wave radar systems to provide for higher fidelity road sensing and collision mitigation capabilities, including pedestrian detection, steering assist and autonomous emergency braking.
