Advanced Safety Technologies, "i-ACTIVSENSE"

Mazda's i-ACTIVSENSE is an umbrella term covering a series of advanced safety technologies, developed in line with Mazda Proactive Safety. They includes active safety technologies that support safe driving by helping the driver to recognize potential hazards, and pre-crash safety technologies which help to avert collisions or reduce their severity in situations where they cannot be avoided.

i-ACTIVSENSE technologies

Driving Support

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC)

Judges the relative speed and distance to the car ahead, and works within a set speed range to maintain a safe following distance, thus alleviating some of the burden on the driver when driving on highways.

Hazard Recognition Support

Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW)

FOW and SBS activation image

Detects vehicles in front and alerts the driver to an approaching risk of collision early enough for the driver to brake or take evasive action.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Detects lane markings on the road surface and warns drivers of imminent unintentional lane departures.

Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM)

Detects cars in the blind spot on either side or approaching from behind and alerts the driver to potential risks when changing lanes.

High-Beam Control System (HBC)

Detects oncoming traffic and vehicles in front and automatically switches headlights between high and low beam, improving visibility at night and aiding hazard avoidance.

Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS)

Supports safe driving at night by turning the headlights based on the degree of steering input and vehicle speed to maximize illumination and visibility at curves and intersections.

Collision Avoidance /Damage Reduction Support

Smart Brake Support (SBS)

Helps reduce the severity of a collision by automatically applying the brakes when a risk of frontal collision is detected while driving at speeds of 15km/h or more.

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

Automatically stops or reduces the speed of the car when there is a risk of collision with the vehicle in front while travelling at speeds of between 4 and 30 km/h in order to help the driver to avoid or reduce the severity of a crash.

Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission

Avoids sudden acceleration by curbing engine power output and alerts the driver if the accelerator pedal is pressed excessively while there is an obstacle in front of the car.
