In an effort to make safer vehicles for everyone that utilizes their vehicles, Honda has worked hard to create an all-inclusive suite of driver-assistive, safety-enhancing technologies. This suite is known as Honda Sensing and it keeps passengers safe by utilizing innovative features to make it easier for drivers to always be aware of their surroundings and what potential threats there may be lurking near their vehicle.

Honda Sensing Features

The Honda Sensing platform integrates quite a few features that make it possible for the increase in safety that the suite is able to provide. Many of these features sway from the traditional safety features and add an additional layer of driver awareness and safety through these extra driver assistive features. These wonderful features and the role they play in making your driving experience safer are as follows.

  • Lane Departure Warning – By flashing warning lights and alerting you through sound, this feature makes it easy to detect when the vehicle is drifting out of its intended lane and the alerts will remind you to correct the deviation.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – To reduce the energy it takes to keep your vehicle centered in your designated lane, this system works to sense and adjust your steering slightly so that you can remain centered with ease.
  • Road Departure Mitigation – To ensure that you stay on the road and avoid possible collisions with road barriers, this system sends a series of vibrations through the steering wheel to alert you of possible danger.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control – This system helps to make long drives easier by creating a set following interval that the vehicle will adjust to, so that you don’t have to do so manually.
  • Forward Collision Warning – Through a small camera mounted on the front of the vehicle this system will be able to alert you when you are too close to the vehicle in front of you and at risk for possible collision.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – In the event that collision is unavoidable, this system makes sure that it can bring your car to a halt as quickly as possible to reduce harm to both vehicles and their passengers.
