Honda Sensing Technology & Features
What is Honda Sensing?
Honda Sensing is described by Honda as their own “exclusive intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.”
Lane-Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
-Detects lane boundaries, adjusts steering to help keep you centered
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
-Detects vehicles in front of you and maintains a set following interval
Road-Departure Mitigation System (RDMS)
-Detects when lanes are crossed without signaling and adjusts steering and braking accordingly
Collision-Mitigation Brake System (CMBS)
-Applies brake pressure when a collision is imminent and deemed unavoidable
Lane-Departure Warning (LDW)
-Issues an alert in the form of lights and sounds when an unindicated lane departure is detected, to help return your attention to the road.
Forward-Collision Warning (FCW)
-A small camera on the windshield detects vehicles in front of yours and issues warnings to let you know you are at risk of a collision.
Additional features available on select 2017 and 2018 models include:
-When you signal right, the camera on the passenger-side mirror automatically activates and displays live video on the center console screen, reducing risk of blind spots and revealing nearly four times as much as the average passenger-side mirror.
Blind Spot Information System
-If your turn signal is on and this system detects a vehicle in the adjacent lane, the system indicator will blink and produce sound until the turn signal has been turned off or the area is clear.
-This feature detects other vehicles approaching from the side when you are in reverse and warns you with a series of beeps and indicator shown on the display.
-This feature senses surrounding conditions when driving above 25 mph (40 kph) at night with headlights on the AUTO setting and intuitively adjusts between high and low beams.
Honda Sensing is a standard feature on all 2017 and newer Accord and Clarity models. Models on which Honda Sensing may not be standard, but on which the suite is available, are the Odyssey, Ridgeline, Fit, CR-V, Pilot, and Civic. Many of these models offer versions such as Touring and Elite on which Honda Sensing is a standard feature.
