Alongside safety education and vehicle technologies, Honda also strives to advance safety by harnessing the power of telecommunication between people, vehicles, and the rest of the world. Car navigation systems with telecommunications capability provide an enormous quantity of driving data. By gathering such data from Honda vehicles across Japan and combining it with real-time information, we are able to develop services like Internavi, a navigation system that can predict traffic congestion with a high degree of precision and guides users to roads that are easier and safer.
Technologies that support safer mobility by transmitting and sharing information through network telecommunications.
Honda is committed to building a society without traffic accidents, a society where everyone can move around freely and with piece of mind. We call this vision "Safety for Everyone."
Safety Map is a project we started with the hope of making the world a safer place to live in for pedestrians, car drivers, motorcycle riders, and everyone else by telling them about places on the road that require special caution. Maps are generated based on emergency braking and traffic collision data collected from Honda's Internavi car navigation system, and on feedback from other road users throughout Japan.
