i-Activsense: Mazda’s New Safety Technology

March 24th, 2016 by


Driving a car, or being in one, is an everyday part of life. Before you’ve even walked, you’ve probably logged hundreds of miles in the backseat. Now you have the joy of being in the driver’s seat. That is a responsibility Mazda takes seriously. It’s also why we developed a suite of highly advanced safety innovations to protect you and your passengers: i-ACTIVSENSE.

Available on select Mazda models, i-ACTIVSENSE employs sophisticated technologies like lasers and radar to help you get a sixth sense for safety through alerts that help you become aware of hazards before they happen. It’s Mazda’s way of creating a safe haven where you feel more confident, in control and focused on driving.

Adaptive Front-Lighting System: On select models, these headlights are specifically designed to help you see around corners at night.

High Beam Control: Available High Beam Control helps the driver see better at night by maximizing opportunities to use the high beams.

Lane Departure Warning System: This available system gives audible and visual warnings when the vehicle is about to unintentionally depart from its lane at a speed of 44 miles per hour or higher.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert: When backing up, this available feature detects a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning as well as a visual warning in either side mirror.

Blind Spot Monitoring: This available system uses radar sensors to detect objects in your left or right blind spot, and then alerts you with a warning light that appears in the corresponding side mirror.

Smart City Brake Support: When traveling at speeds between 2 and 18 miles per hour, the Smart City Brake Support system detects objects ahead and prepares the vehicle buy adjusting brake pads closer to the disc.

Smart Brake Support: Similar to Smart City Brake Support, this system is intended to help avoid or reduce the severity of a collision but operates at rates of speed (above 10 mph) like freeway driving.

Distance Recognition Support System: At speeds above 19 mph, this available feature uses radar technology to measure the distance between your Mazda and the vehicle ahead and indicates a recommended following distance.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control: Simply pre-set the vehicle speed and available Mazda Radar Cruise Control will work within a set speed range to help you maintain a safer distance between you and the preceding vehicle, down to 19 mph.
