Honda Sensing Provides Drivers Greater Awareness


Did you know that your Honda has the ability to keep you safe via Honda Sensing™? This technology benefits drivers by providing greater awareness of driving conditions around the vehicle. Honda Sensing uses cameras that are positioned around the vehicle, as well as a radar system that helps to give drivers a more complete road view.  Honda Sensing also tries to alert drivers when they are at risk of being in a collision, and will also correct steering and braking during dangerous driving conditions.

So how does Honda Sensing do this?

Collision Mitigation Braking System™ This radar unit and monocular camera scans forward traffic conditions. When the system determines that a collision could potentially happen, the integrated Forward Collision Warning system's alerts through visuals and audio cues to prompt drivers to make corrective measures. CMBS can lightly brake, if the vehicle does not begin to slow down when it is at risk of a collision.

Forward Collision Warning (integrated with CMBS) Forward Collision Warning uses the monocular camera to detect the vehicles ahead and to determine whether a collision is likely. If the system detects that a collision could potentially occur (due to different speeds between the two vehicles), visual and audible alerts will be triggered.

Lane Keeping Assist System This technology helps to reduce the need for steering correction movements and driving effort on the highway. LKAS uses a camera to read lane markings and uses the Electric Power Steering to assist the driver in staying within the lane. It also gently corrects steering if the vehicle ends up leaving the lane when your turn signal hasn’t been turned on.

Road Departure Mitigation  Road Departure Mitigation uses a monocular camera to identify lane features, as well as identifying the lane. If Road Departure Mitigation determines the vehicle is about to leave a detected lane, it will provide steering assist and braking to help the driver stay on the road.

Lane Departure Warning (integrated with RDM) Lane Departure Warning is designed to alert the driver if the vehicle is leaving a detected lane without the turn signal being activated. It does this by utilizing the camera that is mounted to the passenger-side window.

Adaptive Cruise Control Adaptive Cruise Control uses a radar system that’s hidden in the vehicle’s grille and a camera in the rear view mirror to help maintain a set speed and keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.  

Keep in mind that these technological advances are not meant to make your car self-driving and relieve you of your driving responsibilities. Instead they are they to support you as you navigate down the road.
