Honda joins GM, Mercedes, Toyota in self-driving group

[2019.11.07, Thu 20:05] In a statement issued on November 7, Honda threw its hat in the self-driving-vehicle ring by joining the Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium. "Honda sees great potential in automated vehicle technology to greatly reduce injuries and fatalities for all road users," said Toshihiro Mibe, president and representative director, Honda R&D Co., Ltd., in explaining Honda's decision to participate. These levels are recognized by the Department of Transportation and became a de facto global standard adopted by stakeholders in the automated vehicle technology. Honda is developing automated vehicle technologies through research, investment, and partnerships to promote broader access to safe and reliable transportation solutions. Honda has a long history of successful innovation, most notably from its variable valve timing advance that broke the 100-horsepower-per-liter barrier, helping to bring about the Type R craze that saw power outputs go far beyond that. In 1987, Honda was the first car company to introduce four-wheel steering, on the Prelude. Honda further wrote that the company "Is creating technologies and products including advancements in automated vehicles, connectivity and ultra-low carbon mobility. In North America, the company has more than 3 million vehicles on the road equipped with advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies which represent the technological and perceptual pathway to the automated vehicle technologies of the future."
