Honda Motor Co., Ltd. currently held the entire world premiere of sophisticated upcoming safety technologies Honda is presently developing for the realization of a culture in which absolutely everyone sharing the highway will be liberated from the possibility of traffic collisions and delight in flexibility of mobility with overall peace of mind.
Honda will try to achieve its target of acknowledging “zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda bikes and vehicles globally by 2050” employing two important technologies. One particular is the world’s very first artificial intelligence (AI)-driven “Clever Driver-Assistive Technology” offering aid that is suited to the ability and problem of every personal to decrease driving errors and hazards, assisting the driver reach safe and audio driving. The other is the “Safe and Sound Community Technology” which connects all highway customers, equally people today and mobility solutions, via telecommunications, earning it probable to forecast opportunity hazards and aid people today keep away from these kinds of hazards just before collisions actually arise.
- Realization of “zero traffic collision fatalities by 2050”
Striving for a collision-free culture for absolutely everyone sharing the highway, represented by the world-wide safety slogan “Safety for Everyone,” Honda has been pursuing the study and growth of safety technologies from the point of view of equally components and application.
For the pursuit of a collision-free culture, Honda will extend the introduction of Honda SENSING 360, a not too long ago announced omnidirectional safety and driver-assistive technique, to all styles to go on sale in all big marketplaces by 2030. What’s more, Honda will carry on doing the job to extend software of a bike detection operate and additional greatly enhance functions of its ADAS (sophisticated driver-aid technique).
On top of that, Honda also will carry on to make development in growing software of bike safety technologies and giving of safety schooling technologies (Honda Security EdTech). By these initiatives, Honda will try to decrease world-wide traffic collision fatalities involving Honda bikes and vehicles by half*one by 2030.
Past that, Honda will try to realize its bold target of “zero traffic collision fatalities by 2050” via establishment of upcoming safety technologies at the earliest probable timing.
- one) Security suited to every personal:
Aiming for “zero human error” in driving with the “Intelligent Driver-Assistive Technology”
- Honda has unraveled the factors behind human errors via its original fMRI*two-centered analyze of the human mind and investigation of possibility-taking behaviors.
- The technique presumes predictors of driving errors centered on information acquired via a driver monitoring digital camera and pattern of the driving functions.
- This technologies is becoming developed to help every personal driver to mitigate driving errors and delight in mobility devoid of any perception of panic.
- Honda will try for establishment of underlying technologies for the duration of the very first half of the 2020s, with simple software for the duration of the 2nd half of the 2020s.
With the target to unravel underlying brings about of driving errors that make the driver come to feel nervous, Honda has been conducting study and growth of “technologies to fully grasp people” with an original technique that utilizes fMRI*two.
In addition to technologies to fully grasp human actions and ailments, which Honda has amassed to date, the “Intelligent Driver-Assistive Technology” unveiled currently, the world’s very first these kinds of technologies, employs ADAS sensors and cameras to realize opportunity hazards in the vehicle’s environment, which permits AI to detect driving hazards. At the exact same time, AI will establish best driving actions on a actual-time foundation and give aid suited to the cognitive condition and traffic cases of every personal driver.
With the up coming-era driver-assistive functions presently beneath study and growth, Honda will try to give the new worth of “error-free” safety and peace of mind which are suited to the driving actions and problem of every personal driver and keep them away from any opportunity hazards.
- No driving operation errors (Operational support):
Automobile gives AI-centered support to decrease drifting and reduce a hold off in functions.
- No oversight/No prediction errors (Cognitive support): Automobile communicates hazards with visible, tactile and auditory sensations.
- Technologies in R&D period: Possibility indicator, seatbelt handle and 3D audio
- No errors due to daydreaming and careless driving (Attentiveness support): Automobile allows decrease driver exhaustion/drowsiness
- Technologies in R&D period: Bio opinions/vibration stimulus via the seatback
From in this article onward, Honda will additional progress the “Intelligent Driver-Assistive Technology” unveiled currently and carry on earning development in growth with the target to set up underlying technologies for the duration of the very first half of the 2020s, then start simple purposes for the duration of the 2nd half of the 2020s.
With this technologies, Honda will progress the conventional driver support which allows the driver keep away from possibility while it is developing to the AI-driven driver support which will keep the driver away from the hazards and try to absolutely do away with human errors, which are the induce of around 90% of traffic collisions*3.
- two) Safe coexistence of all highway customers:
Institution of the “Safe and Sound Community Technology” which connects all highway customers via telecommunication
- Procedure understands/acknowledges the problem and encompassing natural environment of every driver and highway user
- By the communication community, information about opportunity hazards in the traffic natural environment will be aggregated in the server, and hazards are predicted applying the reproduction of the traffic natural environment in the digital place.
- Procedure derives the most acceptable help information, communicates it to every highway user and encourages them to just take steps to keep away from opportunity possibility just before it actually takes place.
- Honda will speed up industrywide and public-private collaboration with an purpose to standardize the technologies in the 2nd half of the 2020s.
To realize a “collision-free” mobility culture for all highway customers, Honda is striving to realize a “cooperative safety society” in which utilization of telecommunication technologies will help absolutely everyone sharing the highway to be related and coexist.
With the ‘Safe and Sound Techonlogy,” information about opportunity hazards in the traffic natural environment, which are detected centered on information acquired from roadside cameras, on-board cameras and smartphones, will be aggregated in the server to reproduce that traffic natural environment in the digital place. In that digital place, in consideration of the ailments and properties of every personal highway user, the technique predicts/simulates the behaviors of highway customers at superior possibility of a collision. Then, the technique derives the most acceptable help information to aid the highway customers keep away from hazards.
This sort of help information will be communicated intuitively to vehicle motorists, bike riders and pedestrians via “cooperative possibility HMI (human-device interface),” which will make it probable for the technique to persuade highway customers to just take action to keep away from a collision just before it takes place.
Aiming for actual-entire world implementation of this technologies soon after 2030, Honda will build the technique and total verification of usefulness in the very first half of the 2020s, then speed up industrywide and public-private collaboration with an purpose to standardize the technologies in the 2nd half of the 2020s.
- Opinions by Keiji Ohtsu, President and Consultant Director of Honda R&D Co., Ltd.:
“Striving to absolutely do away with mobility hazards for absolutely everyone sharing the highway, Honda will give safety and peace of mind of every and each individual highway user as a new worth. Applying our upcoming safety technologies which will embody these kinds of new worth, Honda will do the job towards the realization of ‘zero traffic collision fatalities’ involving Honda bikes and vehicles globally by 2050. For the realization of a collision-free culture in which all highway customers treatment for every other and the flexibility of mobility results in being probable, we will additional speed up our industry-large and public-private initiatives.”
