Honda Sensing Suite technolgoies

In recent years, Honda has added to its lineup of technologies a suite of safety features called Honda Sensing. This suite consists of Honda’s latest and most advanced safety systems to keep vehicle occupants as safe as possible on the road, at times helping to avoid a collision altogether.

We all know drivers get distracted, if not by their phones then by other vehicles or something interesting outside the vehicle. That’s why, with Honda’s Honda Sensing suite, the technologies included work to keep drivers on task and make up for those momentary lapses in attention.

The Honda Sensing suite includes [1]Lane Departure Warning, [2]Lane Keeping Assist System, [3]Road Departure Mitigation, [4]Adaptive Cruise Control, [5] Forward Collision Warning and [6]Collision Mitigation Braking System.
 
[1]Lane Departure Warning: The system detects lane parameters and alerts drivers with a flash and sound if the vehicle is leaving a lane without the use of a turn signal.
 
[2]Lane Keeping Assist System: Working with the LDW system, the LKAS will begin steering the vehicle back to the center of the lane automatically.
 
[3]Road Departure Mitigation: Similar to the LDW, the RDM system alerts drivers if they are nearing the edge of the detected roadway. RDM is activated at speeds between 45 and 90 mph and will also apply steering torque and brakes to keep the vehicle on the road.
 
[4] Adaptive Cruise Control: The system maintains a safe following distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of your, automatically adjusting speed.
 
[5]Forward Collision Warning: Using a small camera, the FCW detects imminent collisions with objects in front of the vehicle and alerts the driver with visual and audio signals.
 
[6]Collision Mitigation Braking System: In conjunction with FCW, CMBS applies the brake when the FCW determines a collision is unavoidable.

The Honda Sensing system is available on newer models of the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, CR-V and Honda Pilot. For more information, or to test drive a vehicle with the Honda Sensing Suite, contact our team at Continental Honda today.


[1]LDW only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
[2]LKAS only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
[3]Road Departure Mitigation only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use and can apply mild steering torque to assist driver in maintaining proper lane position and/or brake pressure to slow the vehicle’s departure from a detected lane. Road Departure Mitigation may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
[4] ACC cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. ACC should not be used in heavy traffic, poor weather or on winding roads. ACC only includes a limited braking function; driver remains responsible for slowing or stopping the vehicle to avoid a collision.
[5] FCW cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. FCW does not include a braking function. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
[6] Depending on the circumstances, CMBS may not go through all the alert stages before initiating the last stage (of collision mitigation). CMBS cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by high interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
