STOCKHOLM —  The automotive technology company Veoneer, Inc. (NYSE: VNE) and (SSE: VNE SDB), is an active-safety-systems supplier for the Subaru Levorg, recently awarded top results in the Japan NCAP (JNCAP).

In JNCAP’s latest annual safety testing, the Subaru Levorg outperformed the 10 vehicles rated with five stars and an overall rating above 98 percent.

At the heart of Subaru Levorg’s active safety system is the new generation EyeSight hardware, a variant of Veoneer’s fourth generation stereo vision system, re-engineered to meet Subaru’s original specification.

The new generation EyeSight has two cameras mounted on a wide-baseline design doubling the field-of-view.

In JNCAP’s tests, the stereo vision system achieved an astonishing 100 percent performance in the following Active Safety Tests:

Automatic emergency braking (AEB) in car-to-car rear-end scenarios
AEB in car-to-pedestrian scenarios at day and at night
Lane-departure prevention
Pedal-misapplication prevention
High-performance headlights

The Subaru Levorg also has Veoneer’s front corner radars installed for more advanced features like forward crossing traffic brake (FCTB).

“Big congratulations to Subaru for receiving the ‘Best Five-Star Award’ in Japan NCAP with the highest score,” said Jan Carlson, Veoneer Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to supply the custom designed EyeSight camera system. The top results in JNCAP’s active safety tests are a true proof-point of Veoneer as a leader in stereo vision systems, providing optical robustness, mechanical rigidity and compact design,” says
