|The ASV (Advanced Safety Vehicle) is a project proposed
by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to develop advanced safety
vehicles for the future. Honda is developing a system which uses radio communication
technology to inform / warn drivers and riders of the distance between vehicles.
For example, the ASV riding simulator has a function where the system warns them
if their vehicle is turning right and another vehicle is in its path or another
vehicle is approaching rapidly.
|Honda's corporate philosophy centers around a respect for
human beings. To help promote safe riding we have developed a Riding Trainer that
is used mainly at dealers. Its simple construction uses an operating system connected
to a personal computer to simulate actual riding. In addition to teaching clutch
operation, shifting and braking, the Riding Trainer can reproduce various riding
situations to help riders improve their defensive riding skills.
