[DDD] 스바루 충돌경고 시스템 2013년형 레거시와 아웃백에 제공 Driving2012-03-17 15:14:57
 

성능에서는 타의 추종을 불허할만큼 좋은 평가를 받고 있지만, 외관이나 내부 디자인 때문에 평가 절하를 받는 스바루에서 충돌 방지 대책을 내놨습니다. 
 누구나 한번쯤 장거리 운전을 하다가 자신도 모르게 깜빡 잠이 드는 경우를 경험했을 것임니다. 앞차와 가까워져서 황급히 브레의크를 밟고 진땀을 흘린 경험이 있을 텐데요.
 자동차 사고의 상당수가 졸음운전으로 인해서 발생하기 때문에 자동차 업체들은 사고 대책 마련으로 여러가지 방지대책을 내놓습니다. 
 메르세데스벤츠 차량 경우 일정시간 운전이 지속되면 계기판에 커피 로고가 나타나며 잠시 쉴 것을 권유합니다. 
 하지만 이런 기능은 운전자의 상태와는 전혀 상관없이 절대적인 시간만을 가지고 측정하는 것이기 때문에 유용하지는 않습니다. 

이 때문에 최근에는 자동차 업체들이 좀 더 적극적인 방식으로 사고 예방 기능을 적용하고 있는데 예를 들면 차선을 이탈 할 경우 경고음을 내주는 차선이탈경고기능, 저속에서 앞차와 거리가 좁혀졌는데도 브레이크를 밟지 않으면 경고음을 내준 뒤에 충돌 뒤에는 자동으로 브레이크를 밟아주는 시티세이프티 기능(볼보) 등이 있습니다. 

스바루가 2013년형 아웃백과 레거시에 적용할 예정인 EyeSight driver assistance system은 차량 상단에 위치한 카메라와 사이드미러에 장착된 카메라가 전방의 장애물이나 보행자를 파악해 시속 19마일 이하에서 충돌이 감지되면 자동으로 브레이크를 작동시켜 충돌을 막아줍니다. 
 차선을 변경할 때도 방향지시등을 켜지 않은 상태에서 이동하면 경고를 해주며 , 고속주행시에도 전방의 차량이 멈추거나 속도를 줄이면 경고를 해줍니다. 

스바루는 일본내 차량에는 운전자 눈의 움직임을 파악해 졸음운전으로 인식될 경우 경고해주는 기능도 제공하고 있는데요. 안전을 위해서 가장 좋은 방법은 피곤할 때는 충분히 휴식을 취하고, 전석 안전벨트, 안전속도, 그리고 운전중에 휴대전화 사용 등을 자제하는 것입니다. 물론 음주운전같은 것도 안되겠지요. 

자동차 사고는 아주 순간적으로 발생하고, 그 피해가 돌이킬 수 없을 정도로 가혹합니다. 자동차 업체들의 이런 신기술 개발도 중요하지만, 바른 운전문화를 통해 사고를 방지하는 것이 중요합니다.

Subaru Debuts New EyeSight™ System

- Stereo Camera Based Driver Assist System
- Pre-Collision Braking
- System Capable of Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure and Sway Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Optional in 2013 Legacy and Outback


CHERRY HILL, N.J., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. has announced the debut of its EyeSight™ driver assistance system. The suite of safety and driver assist technologies will debut at the New York International Auto Show on 2013 Legacy and Outback models. EyeSight will subsequently appear on other products in the Subaru line-up. EyeSight integrates adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, and vehicle lane departure warning. The new technology, which can also detect obstacles in front of a parked car and limit potential damage in an impact, will become available later this year.

Combining safety and convenience features, the Subaru EyeSight system will be one of the most affordable of such technologies available in the United States market. EyeSight uses two charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras developed by Subaru. EyeSight is mounted inside the car on the upper edge of the windshield, thus reducing the potential for damage that could occur in bumper-mounted systems, such as radar. The EyeSight system processes stereo images to identify the vehicles traveling in front, as well as obstacles, traffic lanes and other items. The video information is relayed to the EyeSight computer, which is also networked with the car's braking system and electronic throttle control. Below speeds of approximately 19mph, EyeSight is capable of detecting pedestrians in the vehicle's path and can activate in order to mitigate or even avoid the collision. Under certain circumstances, Eyesight is able to bring the car to a complete stop, thus avoiding a collision.

Pre-Collision Braking Control and Collision Mitigation

At relative speeds under approximately 19 mph, EyeSight's Pre-Collision Braking System can detect obstacles in the car's path and, if the driver has not applied the brakes in time, the system can do so to slow the vehicle or bring it to a full stop to help avoid the potential collision. Pre-Collision Braking is always on in the background to act like a second set of eyes for the driver. It can also be turned off temporarily for off-road or rough road travel.

At relative speeds above approximately 19 mph, EyeSight can apply the brakes when an object is detected, and will attempt to brake if the driver takes no evasive action, or does not brake appropriately. In this way it will mitigate potential damage from a collision. The system, which can recognize programmed objects such as vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians, can help mitigate collision damage.

Lane Departure and Sway Warning

By monitoring traffic lane markers and lines, the Subaru EyeSight system can detect if the car begins to wander outside the intended lane without a turn signal being used, or if the car begins to sway within the travel lane. Using the turn signal cancels the warning.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Intended for freeway use, Eyesight's Adaptive Cruise Control system can maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, braking and/or accelerating the car as needed to maintain the driver-selected target speed and traveling distance. Adaptive Cruise Control is operational from 1-87 mph and can fully brake the vehicle to a stop if the system "locks on" to a vehicle ahead.

As an added convenience, Adaptive Cruise Control assists the driver in heavy "stop and go" freeway traffic by maintaining distance from the vehicle ahead. This feature can help reduce driver fatigue, which can therefore help keep the driver alert.

Additional EyeSight Benefits

In heavy traffic conditions, EyeSight will also alert the driver when the vehicle ahead has moved if he or she doesn't react within several seconds. The technology can also help reduce collision damages by cutting the throttle when it senses an obstacle in front, but the accelerator pedal continues to be pushed. The system is also effective when a driver shifts into 'Drive' inadvertently instead of 'Reverse' when backing out of a parking space. The stereo camera design of EyeSight provides a detection angle wider than that of radar-based systems.

Cautions

EyeSight is not designed as a substitute for due care and attention to the road. The system may not react in every situation. There are certain operational limitations, such as when weather conditions obscure the view of the cameras. Finally, even with the advanced technology used, a driver with good vision and who is paying attention will always be the best safety system.
