At the ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) World Congress 2022 in Los Angeles, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will showcase its latest efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and the development of next-generation driver assistance technology, information communication and control technology. to introduce. , California, September 18-22.
The ITS World Congress is an international conference that presents and discusses the results of research, development, and practical application of ITS technology that solves various problems related to transportation.
Key technologies introduced at Honda’s exhibition
Efforts to Halve Traffic Accident Deaths by 2030
- honda sensing 360
The Honda SENSING 360 contributes to avoiding collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians and reducing the burden on the driver through omnidirectional sensing that eliminates surrounding blind spots. The development of Honda SENSING 360 utilizes the knowledge and know-how cultivated through the research and development of Level 3 autonomous driving technology.
- Honda Drive Data Service
Utilizing driving/vehicle behavior data and location information, we analyze and evaluate the traffic environment, such as places where brakes are frequently operated. Honda Drive Data Service is designed to reduce the risk of traffic collisions by identifying potentially dangerous spots on the road that could cause traffic collisions and allowing users to improve their traffic infrastructure. It has been.
- Road danger condition monitoring system
Honda is piloting a prototype in-vehicle system that uses ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) cameras to detect dangerous road conditions, such as potholes and construction areas, and provides alerts related to nearby drivers and motorcyclists. I’m here. The system is designed to enhance the safety of all who share the road by alerting them to potential road hazards before vehicles pass through the area. Watch a demonstration of Honda’s prototype road hazard monitoring system. https://youtu.be/d17_rVID1fE.
Ongoing research on future technologies to achieve zero fatal crashes by 2050
- technology to understand people
By analyzing the causal relationship between brain activity and risk-taking behavior while driving, Honda aims to clarify the true causes of human error and eliminate human error that causes traffic accidents.
- Driver Augmentation HMI (Human Machine Interface)
We support the peace of mind of the driver by providing driving assistance according to the driving behavior of each individual and traffic conditions. Honda’s goal is to reduce the occurrence of human error while driving.
- Pedestrian jump prevention system (Pedestrian terminal warning system)
The system warns pedestrians in dangerous positions and prevents pedestrians from jumping out, enabling vehicle-pedestrian coordination. In addition, the system notifies nearby vehicles of pedestrians who cannot be seen by vehicles in motion due to obstacles such as those parked on the shoulder of the road.
- Safe and secure network technology
Honda aims to realize a “collision-free” mobility society by connecting everyone who shares the road with communication, predicting potential dangers, and avoiding dangers before they collide.
- Honda Mobile Power Pack e: (MPP e:)
As part of Honda’s pursuit of carbon neutrality, Honda will expand its use of renewable energy by making greater use of Honda’s portable and replaceable batteries. These batteries can be shared across different products and other appliances utilizing the unique properties of MPP e:.
- honda fuel cell system
A new fuel cell system jointly developed with GM achieves low cost and long life. Multiple units can be connected to increase power output, allowing the system to extend its applications from mobility to power generation in various industries. With this fuel cell system, Honda is working to spread the use of hydrogen.
