Mitsubishi Motors develops e-Assist active safety tech


Mitsubishi Motors Corp (MMC) has developed e-Assist, a new active safety system that uses millimeter-wavelength radar as well as a camera to further increase driving safety and peace of mind. MMC will use the e-Assist system for the first time on the all-new and fully redesigned Outlander SUV which is to be released this October in Japan.


Mitsubishi said e-Assist supports safer driving on occasions when accidents are more likely to occur, such as on long-distance journeys or when driving in poor visibility at night or in bad weather conditions.


Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC): This radar-based system maintains a safe distance with the vehicle in front, even in slow-moving heavy traffic.


Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM): This radar-based system automatically applies the brakes when there is a sudden reduction in the distance with the vehicle in front and helps avoid a collision or reduce impact damage in the event of a collision.

nnLane Departure Warning System (LDW): This camera-based system alerts the driver when the vehicle starts to drift from its lane, aiding driver concentration.n

MMC already equips its production models with a comprehensive array of safety technologies including the Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution safety body, multiple SRS airbags and the Active Stability Control (ASC) traction control system which helps prevent the vehicle from skidding. With the all-new e-Assist system, MMC reaffirms its dedication to continuing its research into and development of advanced safety technologies and incorporating them in its production models.
