area, depress the brake pedal while
keeping a safe distance from the
vehicle ahead.

Driver Attention Alert

(DAA)

*

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

The DAA is a system which detects
driver fatigue and decreased
attentiveness, and encourages the
driver to take a rest.
When the vehicle is driven inside traffic
lane lines at about 65 to 140 km/h
(41 to 86 mph), the DAA estimates the
amount of accumulated fatigue and
decreased attentiveness of the driver
based on the information from the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) and
other vehicle information, and
encourages the driver to take a rest
using an indication on the
multi-information display and a
warning sound.
Use the DAA on expressways or
highways.
Refer to Forward Sensing Camera
(FSC) on page 4-212.

When Driving

i-ACTIVSENSE

*Some models.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on DAA and
always drive carefully:

The DAA detects driver fatigue and
decreased attentiveness and
encourages the driver to take a rest,
however, it is not designed to prevent
the vehicle from straying. If you rely too
much on the DAA it could lead to an
accident. Drive carefully and operate
the steering wheel appropriately.
In addition, the system may not be
able to detect driver fatigue and
decreased attentiveness correctly
depending on the traffic and driving
conditions. The driver must take
sufficient rest in order to drive safely.

NOTE

x

The DAA operates when all of the
following conditions are met.

x

The vehicle speed is about 65 to
140 km/h (41 to 86 mph).

x

Driver Monitoring (DM)

*

Driver Monitoring (DM)

The DM is a system which detects
driver fatigue and sleepiness, and
encourages the driver to take a rest.
While driving the vehicle at about 5
km/h (3 mph) or faster, the DM
detects changes in the driver's facial
features using the driver monitoring
camera. The system then estimates the
amount of accumulated fatigue and
sleepiness of the driver and encourages
the driver to take a rest using a warning
indication in the instrument cluster and
a warning sound.
Two types of warning indication
patterns are set for notifying the driver
based on the estimated amount of
accumulated fatigue and sleepiness of
the driver.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the DM
and always drive carefully:

The DM is a system which detects
driver fatigue and sleepiness, and
encourages the driver to take a rest.
This is not designed to prevent driver
fatigue and sleepiness, and
over-reliance on the system could lead
to an accident. Drive carefully and turn
the steering wheel appropriately.
In addition, the system may not be
able to detect driver fatigue and
sleepiness correctly depending on the
traffic and driving conditions. The
driver must take sufficient rest in order
to drive safely.

Mazda Radar Cruise

Control (MRCC) (Manual

Transmission)

*

Mazda Radar Cruise Control
(MRCC)

The MRCC system is designed to
maintain headway control

*1

 with a

vehicle ahead according to your
vehicle's speed using a front radar
sensor to detect the distance to the
vehicle ahead and a preset vehicle
speed without you having to use the
accelerator or brake pedals.

*

1 Headway Control: Control of the

distance between your vehicle and
the vehicle ahead detected by the
MRCC system.

Additionally, if your vehicle starts
closing in on the vehicle ahead such as
if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, a
warning sound and a warning
indication in the display are activated
simultaneously to alert you to maintain
a sufficient distance between the
vehicles.
Also refer to the following before using
the MRCC.

x

Front radar sensor (page 4-216)

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the MRCC:

The MRCC system has detection
limitations depending on the type of
vehicle ahead and its conditions, the
weather conditions, and the road
conditions. Additionally, the system
may be unable to decelerate
sufficiently to avoid hitting the vehicle
ahead if the vehicle ahead applies the
brakes suddenly or another vehicle
cuts into the driving lane, which could
result in an accident.
Always drive carefully and verify the
surrounding conditions and depress
the brake pedal or accelerator pedal
while keeping a safe distance from
vehicles ahead or on-coming vehicles.

Do not use the MRCC system in the
following locations. Using the MRCC
system at the following locations may
result in an unexpected accident:

¾

General roads other than highways
(Driving under these conditions
using the MRCC system is not
possible.)

¾

Roads with sharp curves and where
vehicle traffic is heavy with
insufficient space between vehicles,
or roads where frequent and
repetitive acceleration and
deceleration occur (Driving under
these conditions using the MRCC is
not possible.)

¾

When entering and exiting
interchanges, service areas, and
parking areas of highways (If you exit
a highway while headway control is
in use, the vehicle ahead will no
longer be tracked and your vehicle
may accelerate to the set speed.)

When Driving

i-ACTIVSENSE

*Some models.

4-131

¾

Slippery roads such as ice or
snow-bound roads (Tires could spin
causing you to lose vehicle control,
or the stop hold control may not
operate.)

¾

Long, descending slopes (to
maintain distance between vehicles,
the system automatically and
continuously applies the brakes
which could result in the loss of
brake power.)

¾

Slopes with a steep gradient (The
vehicle ahead may not be detected
correctly.)

¾

Two-wheeled vehicles such as
motorcycles or bicycles are ahead.

For safety purposes, switch the MRCC
system off when it is not being used.

Leaving the MRCC system turned on
when it is not in use is dangerous as it
could operate unexpectedly, resulting
in an accident.

CAUTION

¾

Turn the system off when the vehicle
is running on a chassis roller.

¾

If your vehicle is towed or you are
towing something, switch the MRCC
system off to prevent an unexpected
operation.

NOTE

x

The MRCC system does not detect
the following as physical objects.

x

Vehicles approaching in the
opposite direction

x

Pedestrians

x

Stationary objects (stopped
vehicles, obstructions)

x

If a vehicle ahead is traveling at an
extremely low speed, the system
may not detect it correctly.

x

If there is a structure on the road or
an object (such as a monorail) at a
low height off the ground in front of
the vehicle, the system may operate.
Therefore, do not use the MRCC.

x

Do not use the MRCC system under
conditions in which close proximity
warnings are frequently activated.

x

During headway control travel, the
system accelerates and decelerates
your vehicle in conjunction with the
speed of the vehicle ahead.
However, if it is necessary to
accelerate for a lane change or if the
vehicle ahead brakes suddenly
