Understanding Honda Sensing Technology and Safety FeaturesMar 6th, 2018
Honda’s advanced safety technology sets them apart from other car manufacturers. The Honda Sensing® Safety Suite offers the most innovative safety technology to assist drivers, keeping them safe and lowering the risk of collision. Today we’re breaking down the Safety Suite and what each feature does.
The Honda Sensing Technology Suite
There are a number of different features in the Safety Suite.
Adaptive Cruise Control+
Adaptive Cruise Control not only lets drivers set the desired speed for their commute, it also allows drivers to set and maintain a desired following distance to the vehicle ahead. This means that drivers are able to use cruise control in light traffic.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™
This system determines the distance and closing speed of objects detected that lie directly ahead. The driver will be alerted with audible and visual warnings if the system determines the potential for a crash. The system will apply light or strong braking if necessary.
Forward Collision Warning
This system warns drivers of possible danger ahead. This system uses both audible and visual warnings to alert the driver. Forward Collision Warning compares the vehicle’s speed, with the speed of the vehicle ahead and determines if a collision has the potential to occur.
Lane Keeping Assist System
The Lane Keeping Assist System works to keep the vehicle in the middle of its lane. If the system detects the vehicle drifting from the centre of the lane, it will gently apply steering torque to guide the car back to the middle.
Road Departure Mitigation
The Road Departure Mitigation System identifies if a vehicle is about to leave the road. It uses a camera to identify lane markers and will warn the driver if they are going off the road. The system will apply moderate steering torque or braking if the situation deems necessary.
Blind Spot Information System
Built-in sensors monitor the area surrounding your vehicle. It will alert the driver if a vehicle is detected on either the side. If the driver turns on their turn signal, the system will alert the driver with an audible and visual warning.
