HONDA KITT OUT CAR WITH CRASH RADAR.Byline: MIRROR REPORTER
HONDA engineers have created a Knight Rider-style car safety system which predicts and prevents crashes.
The Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMS (1) See content management system and color management system.
(2) (Conversational Monitor System) Software that provides interactive communications for IBM's VM operating system. ) emits warnings if the motorist is at risk of a rear-end collision - just like David Hasselhoff's high-tech car KITT in the hit 1980s TV show.
The system also gently tightens the seat belt to warn the driver.
And if a crash seems imminent CMS takes control of the brakes.
The technology, a millimetre-wave radar which detects vehicles ahead within a 100-metre radius, determines the likelihood of a collision based on driving conditions.
When there is a risk of a crash a buzzer sounds and the message brake flashes on the steering dial.
If the distance between the two vehicles gets smaller, CMS brakes and tightens the seat belt two or three times.
At this point, if the driver brakes, the system activates the brake assist Brake Assist (BA or BAS) is a generic term for an automobile braking technology that increases braking pressure in an emergency situation.
The first application was developed jointly by Daimler-Benz and TRW/Lucas-Verity. function to reduce impact speed.
The system will be installed in the new Honda Inspire This page is about this vehicle's Japanese model, see Honda Accord for main article and Honda Accord (USDM) for the North American model
The Honda Inspire is a luxury sedan introduced by Honda in 1990 and based on the Honda Accord chassis. .
A Honda spokesman said: "We consider safety to be one of our core responsibilities."
