The Honda Legend premium sedan with autonomous driving technology has received safety certification in Japan.

According to Japanese TV channel NHK, the Ministry of State Lands, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has issued a Honda Safety Certificate for the Legend premium sedan, which is equipped with special equipment for self-driving.

Thus, Honda intends to be the first in the world to start selling cars with the third class of automation according to the international classification, which includes only six levels.

The third level of automation allows the vehicle to move without the participation of the driver in the flow on the highway, as well as independently brake, accelerate and overtake a slower vehicle.

However, the driver is still obliged to monitor the road and, if necessary, quickly respond to an emergency. The company notes that the speed of movement on highways at the car will be limited to improve safety.
