Smart Intersection Technology: Honda Vehicle-to-Environment Systems

Honda is developing Smart Intersection technology that uses vehicle-to-everything technology to help reduce accidents. Using advanced connectivity, the technology connects the vehicle to objects and buildings around it to boost the efficacy of vehicle sensors. This is just the latest step in autonomous vehicle technologies, and Honda is leading the way.

According to Honda, the Smart Intersection technology is also referred to as V2X, as this system lets vehicles recognize objects in the environment. Cameras can be mounted in intersections and then send that information to cars in the area, helping vehicle systems to see around buildings and in poor weather conditions. Even if you’re taking a blind corner, the V2X system can send you information to keep you prepared.

“Honda believes that V2X technology is an essential component of a smarter and safer transportation ecosystem and can play a role in our dream for a zero-collision society,” said Ted Klaus, vice president of strategic research at Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “By partnering with the City of Marysville and the State of Ohio, we believe this research will give us a better understanding of how V2X technologies can be further advanced and most effectively deployed for the benefit of all road users.”

Smart Intersection is yet another step forward by Honda to advance safety for all drivers. Though it won’t be available for some time, current generation models do benefit from the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistive technologies. Learn more about it at Hardin County Honda.

Honda cares about you and your family’s safety. That’s why they created the Honda Sensing© suite, which has your back at every turn.

Honda Sensing© features a suit of driver-assistive technology, all which give you an extra eye on the road. The four features included in this package are:

Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM helps prevent accidents before they happen by sensing the speed of those in front of you and applying your car’s brakes if needed.

Road Departure Mitigation System keeps you on the road by alerting you if you start drifting off the road as well as help adjust your steering if needed.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow makes cruise control easier and safer by adjusting your cruising speed to the speed of those in front of you, maintaining a safe following distance.

Lane Keeping Assist System will stop you from crossing into other lanes unintentionally by guiding you back in the lines if you drift without a signal.

These features help to keep drivers and passengers safer by decreasing both the number of collisions and the severity of collisions, which is why Honda has already sold one million vehicles equipped with this technology.

Honda is aiming for Honda Sensing© technology to be standard on all vehicles by 2022, but you don’t have to wait until then to benefit, as the tech is already rolling out across most of the automaker’s lineup in the meantime. Take a close look at them at Hardin County Honda!
