According to the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, it seems that the country has a problem with the health of its students. To be more specific, it seems that they have found that a record high 25.3% of students have failed to meet the 1.0 mark in vision tests, and that perhaps too much time on smartphones and mobile games might be to blame for this.
Breaking these figures down further, it seems that 34.1% of elementary students at 67.09% of high school students do not have 1.0 vision (also known as 20/20 vision), the highest ever in the history of Japan. The ministry writes, “According to experts, this can be linked to the increased time spent staring at screens caused by smartphone usage and mobile games.”
Subaru have made more revisions to the Forester family, with the most important one being the addition of the EyeSight.
This is the brand's advanced driver assist technology, which uses two stereo cameras, mounted on each side of the rear view mirror, to monitor lane markings, other vehicles as well as pedestrians in front.
Subaru Corp will make improvements to its "Eyesight ver.3" safe driving support system and equip the new "Levorg" wagon and new "WRX S4" sports sedan to be announced in July 2017 with the system as a standard feature.
The two vehicles will be capable of the "level 2" automatic driving in a single lane of expressway.
