How Honda Sensing Technology Keeps You Safe
We all drive for different reasons. Whether it’s to get to work, to pick up a friend from the airport, or even just to go for a joy ride. Whatever the reason is, driving is still a complex task that requires a lot of attention and multitasking.
Since this is the case, it’s easy to make simple mistakes like missing road signs or not noticing cars in your blind spot. That’s why Honda offers drivers Honda Sensing technology. This collection of safety and driver-assistive technologies detects things that are easy to miss so drivers can have peace of mind.
What Is Honda Sensing?
Honda Sensing refers to a suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies offered exclusively to Honda drivers. This technology is designed to make driving safer and less stressful. To accomplish this, Honda Sensing relies on a variety of vehicle safety features such as collision and road departure mitigation, adaptive road control, lane keeping assist, and traffic sign recognition.
Collision Mitigation Braking System
The collision mitigation braking system (CMBS) is a feature that comes standard on EX, EX-L, and Touring Honda models. This technology was developed to reduce the likelihood and severity of potential frontal collisions. In the event a motor vehicle crash is imminent, CMBS will employ a multi-staged collision warning system to alert the driver. If a collision is unavoidable, this feature can assist in applying pressure to the brake before the crash occurs.
Road Departure Mitigation System
A common mistake many drivers tend to make while on the road is failing to signal when switching lanes. Forgetting to turn your turn signal on can put you and the drivers around you at risk. Honda’s road departure mitigation system (RDMS) detects lane markings to help you maintain proper lane position. If you begin drifting into another lane without the turn signal on, the system will send you alerts and can adjust your steering and braking if needed.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Developed to help with driver fatigue, adaptive cruise control (ACC) is an advanced safety feature that detects vehicles ahead of you. When activated, it will help you maintain a comfortable distance between your car and the car in front of you by adjusting your speed. This feature works best when used in light traffic.
Lane Keeping Assist System
The focus of the lane keeping assist system (LKAS) is to make driving more convenient by helping you stay in the middle of the lane. To keep you centered, LKAS uses a camera to detect lane lines. If you begin to drift, this feature can adjust your steering so you stay in the proper position.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Never miss a road sign again with traffic sign recognition (TSR). This feature uses a camera to capture speed signs you drive by. It can then present the information on the driver information interface so you’ll always know what the speed limit is.
Honda Sensing Means Safety for Everyone
Our suite of intelligent safety and driver-assistance technologies isn’t limited just to the items listed above. Honda Sensing also includes helpful features such as Honda LaneWatch, a blind spot information system, cross-traffic monitoring, and auto high-beam headlights.
