Subaru’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology
At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight (*1), Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras capturing three-dimensional color images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human eye. Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles, but also motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. (*2) When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even apply the brakes if necessary, to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the Outback.
EyeSight offers two kinds of technologies:
Driver Assist to help with your awareness on the road and Accident Prevention to help intervene and stop an accident from happening.
Adaptive Cruise Control
EyeSight doesn’t only maintain the speed the driver sets as traditional cruise control does. When it senses a vehicle in front, Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts the speed to keep a set distance from the lead vehicle by monitoring the distance and the difference of the speed. It adjusts the engine, transmission and brake to keep your speed in line with the traffic flow in a wide range approximately from 0km/h to 180km/h. Designed for use on freeways, highways and similar roads, Adaptive Cruise Control actually detects a lead vehicle and its brake lamps and can help keep pace in stop-and-go highway traffic for you, a comfort and convenience on long drives.
Lane Sway and Departure Warning
When you are distracted by fatigue and are wandering or drifting in a lane, Lane Sway Warning helps you stay alert with a buzzer and a flashing indicator. However, Lane Sway Warning only activates at speeds of approximately 60 km/h or more. When traveling at speeds of approximately 50 km/h or more, and you accidentally drift to the edge of your lane and begin to depart your lane without signaling, Lane Departure Warning warns you with a buzzer and a flashing indicator before you leave your lane.
Assistant to continue driving
When the vehicle is stationary and EyeSight detects, that traffic is rolling again, an audio signal and flashing light notifies the driver, that he/she can set off.
Pre-collision Braking System
When it senses an impending collision with a vehicle or other obstacle in front, the Pre-collision Braking System can warn the driver with a buzzer and a light on your dash. If the driver still does not take evasive action to avoid the collision, the system can automatically apply the brakes to reduce any impact, or if possible, prevent the collision as well. If the driver takes evasive action to avoid a collision, Pre-Collision Brake Assist can act to aide the driver in preventing the collision.
Pre-collision Throttle Management
When EyeSight sees an obstacle in front of you and you put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, Pre-collision Throttle Management sounds several short beeps, turns on a flashing indicator and cuts the engine output to help you avoid a frontal collision.
Pre-collision Steering Assist
When it spots a potential frontal impact, Pre-collision Steering Assist helps drivers make a sharp turn to avoid a collision.

*1 EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations for EyeSight including functions in this brochure.
*2 As EyeSight can detect only objects of more than 1 metre above the ground, children measuring less than 1 metre in height are not sensed. There may be cases when detection is not possible depending on a variety of conditions.
*3 Pre-collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.
