Honda puts vehicles on the road with Level 3 features

March 23, 2021 | Case Study

Honda has launched one of the first vehicles with Level 3 automated features. The Legend Hybrid EX sedans have the capabilities (and legal allowances in Japan) to navigate traffic jams using automated features without requiring human supervision. This includes accelerating, braking, and steering when traveling slower than 50 km per hour. While the vehicle is in this mode, the driver is allowed to completely disengage from driving. When traffic changes to higher speeds or the operating environment can no longer be handled by the automated feature, the driver will be alerted to retake control. If they do not, the vehicle will assume the driver is incapacitated and decelerate to a stop and pull over.
