Autonomous Driving: Wrong Way Indicators
Honda has a focus on innovative safety technologies rooted in our shared goal of a collision-free society that drives us every day to pursue the next breakthroughs. Students on the Honda team will enhance the V2V safety systems concentrating on identifying and avoiding wrong way collisions.
In the U.S. more than 350 people die in wrong way collisions each year, more are seriously hurt. Resulting collisions are typically head-on and have a higher mortality rate than other types of collisions. For years, Honda has been leading the way in the Active Safety realm by introducing such technologies as our Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Keep Assist System. To be effective these systems must identify a dangerous situation with sufficient time to implement a safety response.
