Honda has just launched the new Honda SENSING® Elite safety system on the Honda Legend Hybrid EX that's available for lease in Japan. Honda SENSING Elite features ‘Traffic Jam Pilot’ function, enabling the automated driving system to drive the vehicle, instead of the driver, under certain conditions such as when the vehicle is in congested traffic on an expressway. Other features are the first Level 3 automated technology to be approved by Japanese authorities with ‘Hands-off’ and ‘Emergency Stop Assist’. Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist System will assist the driving operations even while the driver has their hands off the steering wheel. Active Lane Change Assist with Hands-off Function provides throttle, braking and steering inputs necessary to accomplish the lane change.
