Public road trials for 'intelligent' cruise control device

HONDA has gained approval for public road testing of a new system which automatically controls the distance of the driver from the car in front. The Honda Intelligent Driver Support (HIDS) system can maintain a safe distance between two cars and also detect line markings to keep the car in its lane.

Honda has been developing the system as an aid to reducing the stress of driving and improving safety and is the first manufacturer to gain approval for testing the system on public roads.
