Safety Measures
Honda Safety
"Safety for Everyone"
Based on the concept of "Safety that Enhances the Coexistence of People and Vehicles",
Honda pursues safety for everyone, including vehicle occupants, other vehicles and pedestrians.

Honda takes a comprehensive approach to all levels of active and passive safety in developing technologies, functions and equipment that support safe driving and reduce injuries.
Honda will continue to advance its innovative research - including intelligent technologies to prevent accidents - as we pursue safety for everyone in today's mobile world.
Active Safety
Accident Prevention
Intelligent Night Vision System
Pedestrian-warning system that detects the presence of pedestrians in the vehicle's path at night and delivers cautions to driver.

HIDS (Honda Intelligent Driver Support)
Reduces driver load and fatigue when driving on expressways.
LKAS(Lane Keeping Assist System) monitors a vehicle's lane based on the image captured by an onboard camera, then provides the appropriate amount of steering assistance required to maintain the vehicle in its lane.
IHCC (Intelligent Highway Cruise Control) users radar to measure distance to the car in front and maintain a safe distance.

AFS (Adaptive Front lighting System)
Controls left and right movement of the headlamps in response to steering inputs, keeping the direction of travel lit when turning.
Hazard Avoidance Support
VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist)
Adds side-slip control to ABS and TCS to maintain vehicle stability when cornering or travelling on slippery road surfaces.
ABS (Anti-lock Brake System), TCS (Traction Control System)

Brake Assist
Increases brake pressure to boost brake operation when the system assesses a braking situation to be imminent.

EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution)
Maintains consistent brake performance even as the number of vehicle occupants or load-weight increases.
Pre-crash Safety
Collision prediction and countermeasures
Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMS) and E-pretensioner
Milliwave radar assesses the distance to a vehicle ahead. If the system detects risk of a collision, it alerts the driver, applies light braking and operates the seatbelt pretensioner to reduce impact force.

Passive Safety
Reducing Injury in Collisions
Crash Compatibility Body
At the same time as maintaining cabin integrity and dramatically reducing direct injury to occupants, the crash compatibility body also reduces impact severity on other vehicles in a collision.
Pedestrian Injury Reduction Body
Uses impact-absorbing structures for the hood, fenders, bumpers and other parts to reduce head and leg injuries in the event of collision with a pedestrian.

Real World Safety Research
Indoor Omnidirectional Crash Test Facility
Advances research into actual accident situations through the world's first indoor vehicle-to-vehicle crash test facility.

2nd Generation Pedestrian Dummy
Dummy construction closely resembles the human form. This enables accurate injury estimation during accident simulator, and the information is then used in the development of the pedestrian injury reduction vehicle body.
