SAFETY: Honda adding V2V safety package to 2015 CR-V

Oct. 3, 2014

High-end models will feature blind-spot cameras, automatic braking and drift correction

The 2015 Honda CR-V will be the first car in the company’s lineup to feature the Honda Sensing safety technology package, which will add several vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V)-based safety features. Honda said it hopes to eliminate all fatalities in its vehicles by 2030 and all crashes by 2040.

Several of the features of Honda Sensing are already found in vehicles today, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings and forward collision warnings. The advanced security package, however, adds three features not currently prevalent in commercial vehicles:

  • LaneWatch aims a camera at the passenger side blind spot, display the live video feed on a central screen and creating a redundancy for the right-side mirror;
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), which automatically brings the vehicle back into its lane if drifting is detected; and
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System, which automatically hits the brakes if a crash is impending and the driver doesn’t react.

Initially, the Honda Sensing package will only be available on the CR-V’s high-end Touring model.
