For vehicle control, the Honda SENSING Elite system can determine the position of the vehicle and road conditions from 3-dimensional high-definition maps and the Global Navigation Satellite System. This technology uses several external sensors to determine a 360-degree review of the vehicle’s surroundings. Using all the information collected, predictions and decisions are made about the driving conditions. When necessary, the system will control acceleration, braking and steering to create a smooth driving experience.
To ensure this technology is as safe and reliable as possible, 10 million pattens of possible real-world situations were simulated, and several demonstration tests were conducted. In the unlikely event of a problem, the system incorporates redundant system design to ensure that control is given back to the driver.
Designed exclusively for this all-new Legend model, exterior equipment like blue accessory lights and a dedicated aluminium wheel have been included. Furthermore, multiple sensors are embedded to make them less visible externally, but still recognisable as markers of a vehicle with automated driving equipment.
Exclusive interior equipment includes Honda SENSING Elite indicator lights, of which the positions, sizes, colours, brightness and other details were chosen carefully, and also the 12.3-inch full-LCD graphic meter. This equipment has been created to intuitively recognise how well the vehicle is operating and any requests to transfer control back to the driver.
