Obstacles testing Honda high-tech solution on site

Obstacles testing Honda high-tech solution on site
Although the number of deaths due to vehicle is strongly decreased collisions over the last 10 years, deaths in accidents with pedestrians and motorcycle riders have remained unchanged.

Honda is experimenting with a wireless technology, impacting significantly on these numbers.

In contrast to camera, radar and laser systems that can short range communication system, which this week shown follow the Japanese company, pedestrians and motorbikes dedicated, even if they are out of line of sight - such as on the other side of a parked car or around the corner.

The new technologies are part of an array of intelligent transport systems, "We believe that the next step in the direction of car will be accident free," said Jim Keller, senior engineer at Honda's automotive technology research.

In a demonstration on the roof of Detroit is expansive MGM Grand Casino, Honda showed the two prototype systems with a motorcycle scoot through an "intersection" behind a truck initially hidden. The driver of the Honda Accord was carefully mounted on the danger through a sound and a flashing light on a video display on the dashboard. A similar test revealed a pedestrian stepping out in the "traffic" behind a van.

Added without the warning, the accord driver of pedestrians and motorcycle riders could have taken. Instead, he had enough time to safely the sedan to a halt.

Other automakers are looking for pedestrians to possibilities, the number of accidents, and in particular spot gradually to reduce traffic. Volvo City safety technology has won kudos as well as discounts from insurers, who find it effective in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian collisions.

But systems based on cameras or radar, usually to sonar or laser sensors do not much behind the line of sight, and offer usually a warning about no more than about three seconds. Honda vehicle pedestrian and vehicle-motorcycle technologies, less than 10 seconds and can spot potential collisions increase.

The trick is a wireless communication system similar to Wi-Fi. A small chip is it effective - and if Honda, its competitors, and regulators can agree on standards - phones and motorbikes would be embedded in future. In a phone, a low-power signal would be if a pedestrian on the street to go; in a motorcycle, it would indicate the bike path.

A radio receiver in a car would constantly watch for possible collisions. This technology could be linked to the vehicle's brakes and the car that come to a halt to allow, if necessary, before the driver recognized the danger of even.

Federal authorities study the idea of cars require vehicle-vehicle technology in the future. There was a driver in a sharp curve to problems as an oncoming vehicle makes a left turn alert.

Honda is one of a growing number of manufacturers with a stretch target fatalities through high-tech systems and improved vehicle structures to eliminate crash.

On Tuesday adapted Nissan this goal as it plans its first completely autonomous or non-interference and vehicle by 2020 announced in. The company said that he hopes that the technology in their products offered within the next 10 years.
