Honda develops braking system for early pedestrian detection

Honda's hoping you haven't had your fill of self-driving autos from CES, because it's just revealed an automatic braking system that's supposedly better than similar technologies out there. According to the Japanese automaker, its system's capable of stopping cars just in time to prevent collision, even if they're going as fast as 37MPH. Honda claims that's a lot faster than what other auto-brake tech can handle, but it's worth noting that Mercedes' and Volvo's systems (though not developed specifically for pedestrian detection) work even if the cars are moving at 50MPH. We've yet to know how much the tech will cost to install, but it's expected to come baked into Honda's Legend sedan, which is set to debut in late 2014.
