Mazda with headlights on driving down dark country highway with oncoming car in view

Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® Driver Assist Technology

The Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE® system is a driver assistance suite that utilizes technology like cameras, radar, and collision mitigation features in order to increase driver awareness and decrease the likelihood and impact of an accident. Learn more about these features and this system with University Mazda, and then test drive a new Mazda equipped with i-ACTIVSENSE® to experience the difference it can make.

What are the i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety Features?

Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS): Navigating Santa Fe roads in the dark can be a hassle, but with AFS, drivers can use this feature to actually turn the headlights so the light bends around the corner, illuminating what’s coming around the curve.

High-Beam Control (HBC): For maximum night-driving visibility, you’ll likely need to take advantage of your vehicle’s high beams. The HBC system uses an advanced camera system that is able to recognize when an oncoming or preceding vehicle is in your general vicinity, automatically switching between high and low beams. This means you can enjoy the greatest visibility without blinding drivers around you.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC): MRCC is an advanced cruise control system that uses sonar to detect the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Then, the system automatically accelerates and brakes in order to maintain a safe amount of buffer space. This system also includes the Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS), which lets drivers know the exact distance between their vehicle and the one in front of them.

Rear Vehicle Monitoring System (RVM): The RVM system also utilizes radar to read the distance of a vehicle approaching from behind in the lanes beside your vehicle in order to make the driver aware of other vehicles in the area. Drivers will also receive an audible and visual warning if the system detects an oncoming vehicle in a neighboring lane when your turn signal is on.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS): This system is much like the Mazda lane keep assist features. It uses an advanced camera system that is able to read lane markers to recognize when your vehicle is drifting out of its lane and sends you a warning to help avoid a dangerous situation. Please note that if the vehicle’s turn signal is turned on when the lane departure occurs, then the LDWS warning does not engage.

Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW): Utilizing similar radar technology to that of the Rear Vehicle Monitoring System, FOW is able to recognize when there is a vehicle or obstruction directly in front of the vehicle. If this system senses that the distance between the front of your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you is decreasing, it will automatically send a visual and audible alert that warns the driver to brake immediately.

Smart City Brake Support: Smart City Brake Support is able to automatically apply the brakes when you’re driving in the city at low speeds in order to avoid or mitigate the impact of a head-on collision.

Acceleration Control for AT: For the select Mazda vehicles that are equipped with an automatic transmission, Acceleration Control for AT automatically sends a warning to the driver if the accelerator is pressed too hard while there is an obstruction in front of the vehicle.
