DENSO Tests Advanced Driving Support Technology on a Public Road in Japan

Kariya, Japan, July 14, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corp. began testing advanced driving support technology on a public road in Aichi Prefecture, Japan this past June. DENSO is testing automated driving scenarios in a single lane and testing automatic lane changes, as well as other driving maneuvers.

DENSO's goal is to develop technologies that reduce driver workload and assist in safe driving. Previously, DENSO tested this technology on its test course in Japan. DENSO's goal with public road testing is to identify, analyze, and solve real-life problems that do not occur on the test course.

DENSO is conducting these field tests as part of the activities led by the Vehicle Safety Technology Project Team to reduce traffic accidents. The Project Team is organized by the Aichi Prefectural Government and involves companies and organizations operating in the prefecture.

DENSO has been developing its advanced driving assistance technology to achieve safer and more reliable driving while the driver remains in control of the vehicle. Development and commercialization of this technology will help prevent traffic accidents and contribute to increasing safety of our automotive society.
