Expect Facial Recognition Technology to Reach the Subaru Forester

In case you didn't hear the news, the upcoming 2019 Subaru Forester was revealed at the New York International Auto Show and, of all the incredible new features and functions it offers, one in particular is taking the auto world by storm: facial recognition technology! That's right: the 2019 Forester will offer facial recognition and that means a lot more convenience and comfort on your rides.



The facial recognition - called DriverFocus - in the 2019 Forester will provide a number of advantages for your daily drives, making it safer than ever to be behind the wheel. Using a small infra-red camera mounted on the dashboard, this system can detect driver fatigue and inattentiveness, then sounding an audio alarm to get your attention and even activating emergency braking if necessary. More than just safety,DrievrFocus can also identify who is sitting in the driver's seat and adjust the seat and mirrors to your specific preferences. The system works by scanning your face to detect certain parameters - the spacing of your eyes, nose, mouth, and chin - to determine who you are; it can even determine your identity through sunglasses too!

The 2019 Forester will arrive sometime in the autumn of this year, so be on the lookout for this gorgeous crossover and its game-changing facial recognition technology. For now, come explore the current 2018 Forester among the rest of our new Subaru models and find the ride that best suits your needs behind the wheel. We hope to see you soon!
