What is Honda Sensing?

Lane Keep Assist

If you’re getting ready to upgrade your Athens commute with a new Honda Accord or Honda Pilot, you’ll be backed by a proprietary safety suite called Honda Sensing. So, what is the Honda Sensing system? Phil Hughes Honda has all the vital information you need to know about these remarkable safety features below!

What is the Honda Sensing System?

If you want your new Honda to keep you safe on Winder and Monroe highways, the Honda Sensing suite can provide more peace of mind. Here are the highlights of the safety suite below:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): This maintains a preset distance from the cars in front of you using sophisticated sensors.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): With a tiny camera, this Honda Sensing feature detects road markings to get a “picture” of the road and warn you when it seems that you are veering off course.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): This system will perform small and controlled adjustments to your steering wheel with the aim of helping you stay in your lane, assuring the smoothest Watkinsville drive.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS): This system uses sensors to stop the car if it senses a vehicle or other obstacle, stopping you from accidentally rear-ending another driver!
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): This system uses a camera to “read” signs such as speed limit signs ahead of you and displays them inside your vehicle so you’re always aware of what’s going on.

Should anything happen or go wrong with your vehicle, it’s always a great idea to contact a service center. Now, let’s move on to another common question: “Can you turn off Honda Sensing?”

Can You Turn Off Honda Sensing?

If you’re finding some of these automated features difficult, can you turn off Honda Sensing? It’s possible to turn off or adjust the settings on your Honda Sensing with these simple steps”
