3. Contents of the development
FHI recognized the EyeSight system as a next-generation safety technology and developed the original stereo camera technology, using two CCD cameras. It was the first device ever to use stereo camera technology to provide the driver many safety assistance features such as an advanced, safer "Pre-Collision Braking Control" that stops the vehicle if it detects the risk of frontal collision, thereby avoiding the collision or reducing collision damage. In addition, FHI successfully developed EyeSight at low cost by using one sensor which not only controls the driving support system but also measures the distance, the speed difference and the relative positions between in front of the vehicle and driving car. Since its introduction in Japan, this user-friendly device has been highly praised with a good balance between its affordable pricing and excellent utility; the sales of EyeSight models have accounted for more than 80% of the total sales in some models in Japan.

FHI continues to offer "Enjoyment and Peace of Mind" to its customers through the Subaru brand statement "Confidence in Motion" and its consistent approach to "Engineering excellence".
