Subaru Rolls Out Leading-Edge EyeSight X - Forester Could Be The First US Equipped Model
Subaru has just rolled out its first model with the new-generation EyeSight driver assist leading-edge technology. The newly-remodeled Levorg sports wagon is the first model to get the system that offers 360-degree cameras. The 2022 Subaru Forester will likely be the first U.S. model to come with the upgraded technology.
Subaru announced that it has partnered with Xilinx to enable the new second-generation Levorg with the vision-based ADAS system (Advanced Driver Assistance System) using stereo cameras on all four corners of the vehicle.
The leading-edge technology offers 360-degree sensing by combining the front and rear radars, and the new EyeSight X uses 3D high-precision map data with road information for each lane. Subaru aims for zero traffic fatalities by 2030 with the new system.
A report from Forbes says, "The XA Zynq UltraScale+ is capable of processing stereo images and data captured by the Subaru EyeSight system's cameras and sensors into 3D point clouds with the low latency, which dynamically react to the environment."
Subaru will eventually upgrade its entire lineup of all-wheel-drive models with the new-generation EyeSight, and the 2022 Subaru Forester could be the first U.S. equipped model.
The fourth year of Forester's model life cycle is when the most prominent design, drivetrain, and safety changes happen. Subaru will give the compact SUV a "refresh" with some exterior and interior modifications to upgrade its appearance, but the significant changes will come underneath its skin.
Subaru has already achieved the highest safety scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the Forester compact SUV. Now they have a goal to use its EyeSight advanced safety system to achieve improved safety performance for zero fatal accidents in its automobiles.
Next year, the 2022 Subaru Forester, in its fourth year of Subaru's life cycle, is due for a significant refresh. Look for the new model change to come with the new EyeSight X. The compact SUV is likely the first U.S. model to come equipped with leading-edge technology.
