Car manufacturers know that safety is a key element for many consumers, and that is why they have developed over time new technologies that can not only protect you in the event of an accident, but also help prevent accidents. This is precisely the mission of the Acurawatch system.

Indeed, the active safety devices included in the Acurawatch system are designed to help you avoid an accident before it happens. In other words, these systems have the mandate to act as a bodyguard for the driver and his or her passengers if there is a distraction, or another vehicle suddenly makes a dangerous move.

Let's take a closer look at the technologies offered in the Acurawatch driving assistance system

Adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow

This system allows you to maintain a predetermined distance with the vehicle in front of you when the cruise control system is activated. In other words, the Acura vehicle you are driving will automatically reduce its speed if the vehicle in front of you slows down or brakes suddenly. In addition, when stopped, the low-speed follow setting will advance your vehicle automatically to follow the vehicle in front of you.

Forward collision warning and collision mitigation braking

This system detects the presence of an object in front of the car and signals the driver of its presence if the latter does not react. The device can even apply the brakes if necessary in order to avoid a collision.

Blind spot information system

Using a warning light, this technology tells the driver if another vehicle is in the blind spot. This system makes driving on the highway and in the city a lot easier and safer.

Lane departure warning system

It’s easy to get distracted when we are behind the wheel of our vehicle, especially on the highway when the road is long and straight. The lane departure warning system alerts the driver when the his or her vehicle is about the swerve into the next lane.

Lane keeping assist and road departure mitigation

This system works in conjunction with the lane departure warning device. If the system detects that the vehicle is about the unintentionally change lanes, it can intervene to prevent lane departure by adjusting the steering wheel automatically.
