What is Honda Road Departure Mitigation?

The Honda Sensing® suites of active safety systems can be found on a continually growing number of the automaker’s new vehicles available at dealership’s like Meridian Honda. One of our product experts fielded a phone call from a prospective customer asking, ‘What is Honda Road Departure Mitigation?’ This is something we know about, but our team takes this knowledge for granted because we work with this technology every day. It has occurred to us that this is probably a question a lot of people have, and it would be helpful for us to answer this question. If you ever need any more assistance in learning how to get the most from your Honda vehicle, please don’t hesitate to stop by the showroom.

How does it work?

Like most systems under the Honda Sensing® umbrella, Road Departure Mitigation employs an array of sensors that help the vehicle determine its position on the road as well as its position in relation to other vehicles on the road.

Road Departure Mitigation differs from the similar-sounding Lane Departure Warning in one key fashion. The former can actually help automatically steer the vehicle if a driver doesn’t respond to increasingly intense warnings and alerts.

*Driver assistance systems, like what is provided by Honda Sensing®, is not a substitute for safe driving practices. The driver is always responsible for maintaining positive control of the vehicle at all times.*

Road Departure Mitigation vs. Lane Keeping Assist

At first blush, these two systems seem to do the same thing. However, Lane Keeping Assist is geared to ensure a properly equipped vehicle remains centered in a detected lane of travel. Both systems will provide visual, audio and tactile warnings that the driver needs to take corrective action before the system will make steering changes on its own.

There are several new Honda vehicles available in the Meridian Honda showroom right now that feature Honda Sensing® technology. Customers can see a full-scale demonstration with them today when they make an appointment with a product expert.

TESTIMONIALS

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
