What are the plans for Honda Sensing?

During the 2016 model year, Honda introduced their new suite of safety technologies aptly named Honda Sensing. Featuring different advanced, driver-assistive technologies like the Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Keeping Assist, Honda Sensing clearly laid out the brand’s dedication to the future of safety. With application of the safety suite more than doubling for the 2017 model year, the package is poised to continue its growth this year and next, and so on. So what are Honda’s plans for the technology?

“Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society and the Honda Sensing technology has a crucial role to play in advancing us toward that goal. With the rapidly growing population of Honda vehicles applying these technologies, we hope to significantly reduce collisions involving Honda vehicles within the next three to four years.”

- Henio Arcangeli, Jr., Senior Vice President & General Manager, American Honda Automobile Division

What does the future hold?

In the United States, a study performed by the Highway Loss Data Institute determined what kind of results Honda Sensing-equipped vehicles have created. The severity of collision claims has dropped by $379, the amount of claim rates when it comes to damaging other vehicles or even property has dropped by 11%, and when it comes to injuries to people the reduction increases to 28%. These numbers are pretty impressive, and they speak to the important and worth of technologies like those found in Honda Sensing.

The manufacturer plans to continue increasing the number of vehicles that come equipped with the safety suite, which has already begun with 2018 vehicles, as they’ve reached 69% application. The company intends to achieve 95% automatic emergency braking as early as 2020, with Honda Sensing becoming a standard feature by 2022. We fully expect that in the meantime, Honda Sensing will continue to evolve by absorbing new technologies and enhancing the pre-existing ones. We’ll be sure to keep you apprised of all the details as they become available, so be sure to keep checking back here on the Wheaton Honda blog.
