Honda is constantly searching for ways to make its vehicles safer for everyone. Recently, lots of features that help drivers lower the risk of collisions have been added. These incredible features are accomplished through the use of cameras and sensors that help the car to ‘think’. This is just another way Honda is doing its best to keep everyone on the road as safe as possible. Check out the specific ways Honda is achieving this milestone!
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Normal cruise control is great for long, interrupted stretches of road on trips, but isn’t so great for around-town traffic. However, Adaptive Cruise Control was made with traffic in mind. This feature allows drivers to set an optimal speed and set a specific following length interval for detected vehicles ahead. Cruise control in light traffic is a game-changer and it’s here.
Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
This feature uses a camera to determine all kinds of car lane markers such as Botts Dots, cat eye markers, and painted on lane lines. When the Road Departure Mitigation system senses the car is leaving the road or those lane markers, it will warn the driver both audibly and visually. In some models, it will even tug on the drivers’ seat belt.

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
This addition is to help lower the possibility and intensity of a frontal impact. The Collision Mitigation Braking System uses a camera and radar transmitter to detect the distance and speed of any object ahead of the vehicle. If it determines there might be a collision, it’ll alert the driver through visual and audible alerts, and in some models, it will also give a light tug on the drivers’ seat belt.
If the system believes a crash is unavoidable, it will apply braking in order to reduce the impact. And just like the other features, in some models, it will even tighten the driver and front passenger’s seat belts to help position them correctly.
