How Does Honda Sensing® Work?

When you purchase a Honda model, you will likely receive the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistance and safety technologies* as standard or an available option. This safety package works to help you become more aware of your surroundings while you’re driving — but how exactly does it do it? Here is a look at the technologies the package offers to help you feel more confident behind the wheel.

 

Collision Mitigation Braking System™

 

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) helps detect potential front-end collisions with objects in front of you, including vehicles and pedestrians. It uses a radar transmitter sitting on the front grille of your Honda, sending you audio and visual warnings when a potential collision is detected. If you don’t apply the brakes, it will do so for you.

 

Road Departure Mitigation System

 

This technology works to keep your Honda in its lane, whether you’re driving between double yellow lines or single white lines. It uses a windshield-mounted camera to detect the lines, giving you a visual and audio cue to make you aware of your road departure.

 

Adaptive Cruise Control

 

Set a following distance when you turn on your cruise control, and allow your car to keep this distance with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). It can even slow down if the car in front of you does.

 

Lane Keeping Assist System

 

Keep to the middle of your lane with the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). It uses a windshield=mounted camera to detect your lane, keeping you centered.

*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 extreme interior heat. System designed to mitigate crash forces. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

 

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. RDM may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed, road conditions, and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

 

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.

 

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, road conditions, and other factors. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
