The Next Generation of the Subaru EyeSight System Will Use Artificial Intelligence

Subaru will use artificial intelligence for its next generation of driver assistance systems.

  • This will allow the system to work better in low-visibility situations

  • The current system can allow hands-free driving in heavy traffic in Japan

  • Subaru says this technology will be ready in 2025

Subaru is working on a new generation of its EyeSight driver assistance systems that will use artificial intelligence to improve the capabilities of the current technology.

Artificial intelligence is better at identifying unusual elements, which should make the new system better at following worn-out or snow-covered road markings as well as spotting people or animals lying on the road.

Subaru says the next EyeSight will be able to perform autonomous parking maneuvers and it should be better at hands-free driving in heavy traffic, which is a feature currently offered by the brand in Japan only. The next-gen system will also use over-the-air updates in order to allow modifications to its capabilities even once the car has been sold.

Using artificial intelligence will also allow the automaker to keep using its stereo camera system instead of investing in lidar technologies. Indeed, Subaru says two cameras are better at generating 3D renderings of the environment than a lidar, which is the technology favoured by most of its competitors.

Despite the increased capabilities of the upcoming system, Subaru says its goal is to prevent every fatality caused by its vehicles by 2030 rather than to achieve fully autonomous driving.

As of now, the company claims its vehicles equipped with EyeSight (91% of the vehicles it sells worldwide) are only involved in 40% as many pedestrian collisions and 16% as many rear-end collisions as vehicles not equipped with this technology.

Reducing the number of accidents is also the main reason why Subaru wants to give its cars the ability to park themselves since its data reportedly shows that a third of all traffic accidents happen in parking lots.

This new system with artificial intelligence should be ready in 2025. Until then, Subaru might bring the latest version of its current system to the United States
