Subaru EyeSight Vehicle Safety Feature Technology

Subaru EyeSight™ Safety Feature Overview

Subaru takes a look into the future with EyeSight.  Two cameras are mounted by the rearview mirror to monitor traffic and react to conditions even before you do.  Basically, EyeSight sees the problem and initiates action to help avoid the trouble.  EyeSight will also sound an alert and flash a visual warning if there's danger of a collision and will apply the brakes automatically if you don't.  It can also optimize cruise control and warn drivers when they're swaying outside their lane.  Eyesight is available on the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester SUVs, all-new 2013-2014 Subaru Outback wagons, and all-new 2013-2014 Subaru Legacy sedans.
What is EyeSight?
Eyesight is a driving support system that uses a range of functions to assist the driver in making decisions in order to provide for more safe and comfortable driving and to reduce driver fatigue.  It is designed to help assist drivers, not replace them.

How Does EyeSight Work?
EyeSight uses stereo cameras to produce stereo images and identify the vehicle in front, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items.  Under the right circumstances, it will apply the brakes or decrease the throttle to help reduce the severity of, or help avoid a collision.

EyeSight Functions

Adaptive Cruise Control and Lead Vehicle Start Alert

This function combines the benefits of Cruise Control with active monitoring of the road ahead by EyeSight, and it issues warnings and activates automatic braking when needed.  Adaptive Cruise Control can regulate vehicle speed in order to keep a safe following distance from the car ahead.  It does not replace Conventional Cruise Control, which can still be used when desired.  Lead Vehicle Start Alert notifies the driver when the vehicle in front has started moving but the EyeSight driver's vehicle has not.

Pre-Collision Braking System

This function can recognize an impending collision with the vehicle or obstacle in front of the EyeSight vehicle, alert the driver and even automatically apply the brakes to help avoid a collision or minimize the impact when a collision is inevitable.

Pre-Collision Brake Assist

If EyeSight recognizes an impending collision with the vehicle or obstacle in front of the EyeSight vehicle, and the driver is applying the brakes but not with enough brake pedal force, Pre-Collision Brake Assist automatically applies up to full braking pressure in order to try to shorten braking distances.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management

This function is designed to help prevent drivers from accelerating into a stopped vehicle or other obstacle in front of them.  It warns the drivers and reduces engine power until he or she applies the brakes to avoid an impact.  Pre-Collision Throttle Management is helpful when (1) the driver inadvertently selects Drive instead of Reverse and starts to accelerate toward a parked car, wall or parking structure or (2) when starting to merge onto another road when the vehicle ahead accelerates, but then stops.

Lane Departure Warning and Lane Sway Warning
Lane Departure Warning alerts drivers when they unintentionally move out of their travel lane.  It takes no corrective vehicle action other than issuing visual and audible warnings.  Lane Sway Warning acts in a similar way, detecting unusual back and forth vehicle movement within the driver's lane of travel that is usually indicative of a drowsy driver.
