EyeSight

SUBARU’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology

At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY, and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight*1 , Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras to capture three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human

eye.Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians.*2 When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces the burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the Outback.

*1 EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations for EyeSight including functions in this brochure.

*2 Pre-Collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.
