Honda Sensing is a driver-assistance technology that reportedly consists of various techniques that assist in mitigating the danger involving passengers, drivers, and others. It is also made up of an AEB system which the Japanese company refers to as the Collision Mitigation Braking System, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation, active lane-keeping assist, and forward collision warning.Japanese automaker Honda will be making its advanced safety system standard by 2022. This announcement has been made by the carmaker as it also claims that one million US vehicles are already equipped with such safety system called Honda Sensing, reported American media site, CNET.

American Honda’s automobile division senior vice president and Honda brand’s general manager  Henio Arcangeli, Jr. said, “Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society." To make it happen, Honda Sensing tech has an important role to play, he said. Arcangeli continued that since there are many Honda car owners applying for the said safety technology, the Honda team is also hoping that it will reduce collisions involving their vehicles within the next three to four years.

In a study conducted by the Highway Loss Data Institute, an organization that publishes insurance loss statistics on vehicles, they found out that vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing were responsible for the 11 percent reduction in claim rates for damage to other vehicles and property, and a 28 percent reduction in injuries to people.
