The Honda Sensing Elite is a variation of the Honda Sensing driver-assistive suite, and it allows for hands-free highway merging and cruising, road junction navigation, as well as automatic parking for home garages. It can even handle hands-free driving while in a traffic jam on arterial roads, according to Honda. 

With regards to how this will be achieved, the Honda Sensing Elite will be utilizing Honda’s in-house developed artificial intelligence (AI). This AI is able to learn how to handle driving situations like a human thanks to machine learning. In a nutshell, this system can grow as it accumulates experiences on the road.  

Honda is confident that once this tech is released, it will provide a seamless and safe ride for its customers. It will also improve peace of mind on any road. But while this sounds exciting, Honda is yet to provide a specific date for its launch.

On top of announcing the updates about the Honda Sensing Elite, the Japanese marque also reported that the Chinese market will be getting the next-generation Honda Sensing 360 by 2024. This in turn, promises to feature advanced technologies that can avoid accidents by recognizing human error. It can also monitor and react to “abnormal conditions occurring to the driver and the vehicle’s surroundings.” 

The US market will also be getting an improved version of the Honda Sensing 360 by 2030. It will be present on all new US-spec Honda models, as well as all new Acura models by that time frame.  

Do note that the continuous improvement of Honda Sensing and the development of the Honda Sensing Elite is a part of Honda’s mission to help reduce road accidents by half in 2030, and in the total elimination of driving accidents and fatalities involving their products by 2050.

Aiding Honda on this mission is AI tech, known in the brand’s ecosystem as the Intelligent Driver-Assistive Technology (IDAT). There’s also the Honda Sensing 360, and the up and coming “Safe and Sound Network”. As a side note, the brand is also looking for a way to incorporate the Honda Sensing 360 on motorcycles.
