Automobile manufacturing giant Honda revealed its motive to use artificial intelligence technologies in making roads safer for every individual. The announcement was made during Honda’s recently held ‘World premiere of advanced future safety technologies’ event.
Honda plans to equip its upcoming vehicle with advanced AI solutions that would help in reducing accidents that occur on roads mainly due to traffic rules violations and human errors while driving. The artificial intelligence driving assistant will analyze real-time data and provide assistance suited to particular traffic situations.
According to the company, it will achieve ‘zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and automobiles globally by 2050.’ Honda’s new artificial intelligence-enabled driving assistant system uses various kinds of camera modules and high-end sensors to minimize any chance of road accidents.
Head of Automaker’s research Aem at Honda, Keiji Otsu, said, “For the realization of a collision-free society where all road users care for each other and the freedom of mobility becomes possible, we will further accelerate our industry-wide and public-private initiatives.”
Apart from Honda’s ‘Intelligent Driver-assistive technology,’ the company has also collaborated with SoftBank to develop a new system named ‘Safe and Sound Network Technology.’ The jointly developed system will use telecommunication to connect the people present on roads and automobiles in order to make roads safer and accident-free.
A press release mentioned, “Striving for a collision-free society for everyone sharing the road, represented by the global safety slogan Safety for Everyone.” Honda is currently working on both hardware and software products to provide better safety to automobile passengers and pedestrians. Honda aims to reduce the global traffic collision fatalities involving Honda automobiles to half by the end of 2030.
The press release also mentioned, “Honda will strive to offer the new value of ‘error-free’ safety and peace of mind which are suited to the driving behavior and situation of each individual driver and keep them away from any potential risks.”
