Understanding And Servicing Subaru’s EyeSight System

The driver assistance system utilizes cameras mounted inside the car on the upper edge of the windshield.

For the 2014 model year, Subaru introduced the EyeSight driver assistance system. This advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) package was an option on Legacy and Outback models and included adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure warning.

Below speeds of approximately 19 mph, EyeSight is capable of detecting obstacles and pedestrians in the vehicle’s path and, if the driver has not applied the brakes in time, can activate to mitigate or even avoid the collision, according to Subaru. Under certain circumstances, Eyesight is able to bring the car to a complete stop to avoid a collision. Pre-Collision Braking is always on in the background to act like a “second set of eyes” for the driver.
