AcuraWatch

TM

 

(P413)

AcuraWatch

TM

 is a driver support system 

which employs the use of two distinctly 
different kinds of sensors, a radar sensor 
located behind the emblem and a front 
sensor camera mounted to the interior side 
of the windshield, behind the rearview 
mirror.

The camera is located 
behind the rearview 
mirror.

The radar sensor is

Collision Mitigation 
Braking System

TM

 

(CMBS

TM

(P417)

Can assist you when there is a possibility of 
your vehicle colliding with a vehicle or a 
pedestrian detected in front of yours. The 
CMBS

TM

 is designed to alert you when the 

potential for a collision is determined, as 
well as to reduce your vehicle speed to help 
minimize collision severity when a collision is 
deemed unavoidable.

Adaptive Cruise Control 
(ACC) with Low Speed 
Follow 

(P428)

Helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and 
a set following-interval behind a vehicle 
detected ahead of yours and, if the detected 
vehicle comes to a stop, can decelerate and 
stop your vehicle, without you having to 
keep your foot on the brake or the 
accelerator.

Lane Keeping Assist 
System (LKAS) 

(P448)

Provides steering input to help keep the 
vehicle in the middle of a detected lane and 
provides tactile and visual alerts if the 
vehicle is detected drifting out of its lane.

Traffic Jam Assist 

(P 457)

The traffic jam assist system uses a radar 
sensor mounted inside the front grille and a 
camera mounted to the upper portion of 
the windshield to detect and monitor left 
and right white (yellow) traffic lane lines as 
well as any vehicle ahead. Based on inputs 
from the radar sensor and camera, the 
system adjusts the speed of your vehicle to 
maintain a set interval between your vehicle 
and the one detected ahead. It also applies 
steering torque to keep your vehicle in the 
center of the detected lane when you are 
driving in heavy traffic.
