Last week, the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) was held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. This five-day event gathered car enthusiasts from all around the country and wowed them with a lineup of concept cars, upcoming and currently available models, and interactive displays.
One such interative display at PIMS was the Honda Sensing VR Simulation. The booth used a model cockpit, VR goggles, and headphones to simulate various ‘Honda Sensing’ technologies. For those who don’t know, Honda Sensing is an array of safety and driver-assistive systems on some new and upcoming Honda vehicles. The VR simulation included real-life situations such as a pedestrian suddenly running onto the road, a vehicle up ahead suddenly stopping, and unintentional lane departure. The program showed how Honda Sensing alerts the driver in these situations and deploys active-safety measures such as emergency braking when needed.
Another booth at the event was Toyota’s smart motion puzzle game, which utilized a large TV and sensors. To play, the person had to raise his/her hands and reach for the puzzle pieces to complete the image of a Fortuner, an Innova, or a Vios in the quickest time possible.
Both displays were true to the event’s mantra of ‘Future Mobility,’ giving the show attendees a chance to experience the philosophy firsthand.
