Honda is always looking for ways to innovate and improve the safety of their vehicles on the roads. Recently, the Japanese auto maker released their latest brake technology: Honda Sensing. Honda Sensing is a suite of safety features designed to help drivers stay safe on the roads.
Honda Sensing consists of five core technologies: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDMS), and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR). CMBS is a system that is designed to detect potential collisions with vehicles ahead, and then automatically apply the brakes to reduce the severity of the collision or avoid it completely. ACC is a system that automatically adjusts the cruising speed of the vehicle to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles ahead. LKAS is a system that helps keep the vehicle in its lane by applying steering force if it detects unintentional drifting from its lane. RDMS is a system that uses lane recognition technology to recognize when the vehicle is about to leave the road, and will then apply brakes to help bring it back on course. Lastly, TSR is a system that identifies and acknowledges speed limit signs and is capable of reminding the driver of the current speed limit.
Honda Sensing is developed from the company’s commitment to innovation and safety, and is designed to help drivers stay alert, reduce the risk of accidents, and enhance the overall driving experience. Honda Sensing is part of Honda’s effort to develop an integrated driver assistance system that is able to anticipate and react to various situations including traffic, weather and road conditions. This system is being installed in Honda vehicles sold in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, and Honda is working on further improvements to the system which will hopefully be seen in years to come.
