Automated Driving Is Closer Than You Think Thanks to Honda

It’s not easy to hand over the reins when you’re driving.


Especially if you’re handing them over to your vehicle!


Honda has been on the cutting edge of technology for many years and some of the latest developments involve automated driving.


Here’s what you need to know about what the future holds for Honda vehicles.

Honda innovation 

Here’s some important data that you need to know about Honda’s eventual development of automated driving.

  • Honda has invested more than $1.1 billion into research and development operations in the United States, located in places like California, Colorado, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina.

  • 31 different Honda and Acura models have been researched, designed, and developed right here in the United States.

  • Honda Research and Development has a wind tunnel facility here in the Buckeye State. Right now, they’re working on improving vehicle fuel economy by reducing aerodynamic drag. 


But there’s one area that techies everywhere have their eyes on, and that’s what we’ll take a look at next.

Honda does automated driving

Honda has recently announced that they’re looking at 2025 as the year for automated vehicles to hit the road.


The vehicles will be equipped with Level 4 highly-automated driving systems.


This means that all driving tasks would be performed without human intervention.


There are some exceptions, though, such as bad weather conditions, during which the driver would have to intervene.


The vehicle was recently tested in Japan on a multi-lane freeway with positive results.


This artificial deep learning technology can sense and respond to complex driving environments without the use of GPS.


It uses accumulated experience to predict outcomes and take appropriate action.


Honda’s goal in developing automated driving technology is to create collision-free communities and keep safety a top priority.
