Automatic braking system to be available from later this year

Subaru Legacy buyers will be able to get a new automatic braking system later this year.

The system uses two forward-facing cameras to detect a potential collision and gives an audible warning to the driver if a potential collision is detected.

If no action is taken, and the closing speed between the two cars is 18.6mph or less, New EyeSight can stop the car to avoid a collision. At greater speeds it acts to slow the car.

The system also detects sudden heavy braking by the driver, automatically activating the pre-collision brake assist system to maximise braking.

The 'New EyeSight' technology will be offered in the UK late in 2010.
