The system detects vehicles on the road ahead with the single-lens camera and laser radar, and also helps the vehicle avoid or take reduced damage from collisions.
Degree of danger is assessed from the position, speed, and predicted path of one's own vehicle, as well as the speed and position of other vehicles. If the system determine there is a possibility of collision, the system will alert the driver with audio and visual warnings. If the driver applies insufficient pressure on the brake, the system will assist. If the driver fails to brake completely, the system will apply the brakes automatically.
