Hybrid sedan Honda Legend (KC2) with complex Honda Sensing Elite.

Sales of the Honda Legend sedan (KC2) with a hybrid power plant and an active safety complex Honda Sensing Elite, which meets the third level of autopilot, will start in Japan tomorrow.

With Sensing Elite, the driver can take their hands off the steering wheel while driving on the fast lane or in traffic.

The Japanese Ministry of Transport, after test drives, approved this complex. During the tests, 1.3 million km were covered and over 10 million possible road situations were analyzed.

Using 3D maps and satellite navigation, the system determines the position of the car, external sensors scan the area around the car 360 degrees, and a camera installed in the cabin monitors the driver’s condition.

In short, the Sensing Elite, with the help of adaptive cruise control and lane monitoring system, takes over steering, acceleration and braking, keeps the sedan in the middle of the lane and maintains its distance.

If the driver does not react, Sensing Elite slows down the movement of the car, up to a stop, activating the alarm (the police are not called in this case).

The first to test this system in 2014 was the Legend sedan. Honda Sensing is currently available on all Honda vehicles in Europe, starting with the base trim. Incidentally, the Nissan ProPilot 2.0 has similar capabilities.
