Making the energy-independent home a reality

"Could we not only create vehicles but also find ways to more efficiently use their energy for other purposes?" This idea eventually led to the Honda Smart Home System (HSHS) and its demonstration testing. To combine new technologies with Honda's wide-ranging products featuring electromotive mobility and energy generation, Honda is now researching ways to make the energy-independent home a reality.

The Honda Environment Statement:
As a responsible member of society whose task lies in the preservation of the global environment, the company will make every effort to contribute to human health and the preservation of the global environment in each phase of its corporate activity. Only in this way will we be able to count on a successful future not only for our company, but for the entire world.

Honda Smart Home System

The HSHS consists of such units as a household gas-engine cogeneration unit, a hot-water supply system, and solar cell modules. By efficiently managing household energy supply and demand, the system reduces household CO2 emissions and provides a backup supply of electricity so that each home can be self-sufficient when a power outrage or disaster strikes.

Aiming to ensure

Developing safety in talent, facilities, and software

Taking a people-first approach of "passing on safety education from person to person" and "practical, hands-on education," Honda has been promoting safe riding/driving since 1970 and recently extended its safety training beyond dealers and Traffic Education Centers. In close ties with local associations, Honda supports local instructors and offers an opportunity for hands-on traffic education.

Developing technologies to prevent collisions and injuries

In 2003, Honda developed the world's first Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and seatbelt E-Pretensioners that retract seatbelts in anticipation of a collision in order to mitigate the potential impact. Honda is developing advanced technologies for preventing accidents and protecting people.

Promoting safety through active communication

In pursuit of the vision of "sharing knowledge of potentially dangerous locations so that everyone can work together in achieving safer traffic conditions with a greater sense of security," Honda has undertaken the new Safety Map initiative. This publicly available map contains information gathered via Honda's Internavi service including locations where sudden braking frequently occurs and where traffic accidents happen as well as information about potentially dangerous areas posted by local residents.
