Available on Pilot EX trims and above, Honda Sensing can help improve drivers’ situational awareness with its various systems, which include the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM).
These systems benefit from the adoption of a sensor fusion technology integrating the capabilities of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grille-mounted millimeter wave radar system to provide enhanced sensing with the ability to identify and anticipate multiple collision scenarios, including those involving a pedestrian.
When the system anticipates a collision or road departure, it can initiate warnings and, in certain instances, initiate emergency braking and steering.
