Honda launches new Honda Sensing 360 system - global application to start in 2022

The new Honda Sensing 360 system is the next step forward of achieving zero traffic collision fatalities

Honda has unveiled its latest-gen advanced safety and a driver-assistive system called the Honda Sensing 360. This system will offer an 'expanded sensory range' around the vehicle with the goal of removing blind spots as well as enhancing collision avoidance. China will be the first country to deploy the system in 2022 followed by the rest of the world in stages (the US market will be called the AcuraWatch™ system under the Acura brand name).

With the goal of achieving zero traffic collision fatalities involving all Honda bikes and cars by 2050 as well as achieving carbon-neutrality, this next-gen will be a heavily upgraded modul compared to the currently used Honda Sensing unit. Its biggest addition would be the inclusion of an omni-directional sensory range and five advanced millimeter-wave radar units around the vehicle combined with the currently available monocular camera from Honda Sensing.

As part of Honda's approach called "Safety for Everyone", Honda is spearheading this particular vision using two of the world’s most sophisticated crash-test facilities located in Ohio and Japan, all in the name of looking for better ways and methods to improve the crashworthiness, collision compatibility, and pedestrian safety.

According to Gary Robinson, assistant vice president of Product Planning at American Honda Motor Co., Inc., "Honda Sensing 360 represents the next major step in what has already been an industry-leading application of safety and driver-assistive technologies," said  "Honda will continue to advance our technologies to improve safety for everyone sharing the road and play a leading role in realizing a collision-free society."
