Honda Sensing in Morganton, NC

Did you know Honda offers a new suite of driver-assisting technologies, called Honda Sensing, that can help you sense things you might miss while driving? In some cases, they can even help you avoid a collision or mitigate its severity! Check out the information below to see how each technology feature comes in handy while on the road.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

Ever drifted into the next lane without intention? Or, do you wish you were better at using your turn signal before departing lanes? Well, LDW alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. Alerts will flash and sound to help bring your attention to correcting the lane drift.*

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

This feature is especially helpful for long-distance traveling that can cause driver fatigue. LKAS helps keep you in the middle of your lane. If you begin to leave the center of a detected lane without signaling first, the steering wheel will automatically adjust to keep you centered.^

Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)

If your vehicle is drifting too close to the side of the detected roadway while driving 45-90 mph without a turn signal activated, RDM alerts you with rapid vibrations on the steering wheel. If you continue to leave the roadway, it can also apply steering torque and braking to help keep your vehicle in the detected lane.**

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Take cruise control to the next level! ACC helps you maintain a set following interval, so you don't have to manually change your speed as you close in on other vehicles ahead of you.^^

Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

It's common knowledge that if were to strike someone else's vehicle from the back, you will more than likely be automatically held at fault in the accident, which could increase your monthly auto insurance payment significantly. FCW uses a small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. If the FCW system determines that you are at risk of a collision with a detected vehicle, it activates audio and visual alerts to warn you. If you fail to act, the Collision Mitigation Braking Systemâ„¢ will automatically apply brake pressure.***

*LDW only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
^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 and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. 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. Road Departure Mitigation may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. 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.
***FCW 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. FCW does not include a braking function. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions. Depending on the circumstances, CMBS may not go through all the alert stages before initiating the last stage (of collision mitigation). 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 high interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
