|Honda Develops New Driving Aid, the Honda Intelligent Driver Support (HIDS) System|
|Tokyo, September 19, 1997 --- Honda Motor Co., Ltd. introduced today the "Honda Intelligent Driver Support" (HIDS) system, a new driving aid compensating for careless human errors.
This system reduces driver burden by compensating for mistakes made under normal driving circumstances. It recognizes road lanes (CCD camera), and measures the distance to the car ahead (laser-type radar sensor) to regulate speed, car-to-car distance and to help remain within a given lane.
