Honda Driving Support System
Company will begin testing the system next month
Honda has announced plans to begin testing their Driving Support System in Utsunomiya City, Japan.
Designed to reduce accidents and improve fuel efficiency, the Driving Support System uses traffic signal information to provide notifications to the driver.
When approaching an intersection, the system will display the recommended speed the driver needs to travel to get a green light. If the driver can’t get a green light, the display will notify them to let off the accelerator. Once the car has stopped at a red light, the display will count down the time remaining until the light turns green.
Honda will begin testing the system in April and the company hopes to determine how well the system improves fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions. Researchers will also study the effects of the system on traffic flow and traffic safety.
1995 Audi TT concept
Exhibit runs from April 2nd to May 11th
Audi is celebrating the unveiling of the third-generation TT by hosting a “State of the ArTT” exhibit at the company’s museum.
Set to run from April 2nd to May 11th, the exhibit will highlight significant cars and milestones in the TT’s history.
The story starts back in 1959 when NSU introduced the Quickly TT which was a “moped designed for young sports enthusiasts.” Six years later, the company introduced the Prinz 1000 TT which was a compact car built in Neckarsulm, Germany.
Nearly three decades later, Audi introduced the TT concept at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was soon followed by a TT Roadster concept at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show. The concepts were well received so Audi launched the TT Coupe in 1998 and the TT Roadster in 1999.
