Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)*
The TJA is a system which consists of a headway control function and a steering assist
function for reducing driver fatigue during traffic jams when driving on expressways or
highways.
This system performs headway control to maintain a constant distance between your vehicle
and a vehicle ahead at a preset vehicle speed without you having to use the accelerator or
brake pedal. Even further, with the steering assist function, when vehicle lane lines are
detected, the function assists the driver in keeping the vehicle within the lane lines. If lane
lines are not detected, the function provides the driver driving assistance in keeping the
vehicle along the motion path with the vehicle ahead.
WARNING
Do not rely completely on TJA:
¾ The TJA is not an automated driving system. In addition, the functions have limitations. Do
not rely completely on the system and always stay on course using the steering wheel.
¾ Set a vehicle speed within the speed limit according to the road conditions and the weather
conditions.
¾ The TJA may not be able to detect a vehicle ahead depending on the type of vehicle ahead
and its conditions, the weather conditions, and the road conditions. Additionally, the
system might be unable to decelerate sufficiently if a vehicle ahead applies the brakes
suddenly, another vehicle cuts into the driving lane, or the difference in vehicle speed
between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead is larger, which could result in an accident.
Check the surrounding conditions and always drive carefully while keeping a safe distance
from vehicles ahead and on-coming vehicles.
For the purposes of safety, switch the TJA off when it is not being used.
Leaving the TJA turned on when it is not in use is dangerous as it could operate unexpectedly,
resulting in an accident.
Do not use the TJA under the following conditions. Otherwise, it may result in an accident.
¾ General roads other than expressways or highways (Driving under these conditions using
the TJA 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 TJA is not possible).
*Some models.
4-161
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
¾ When entering and exiting interchanges, service areas, and parking areas of expressways (If
you exit an expressway while headway control is in use, the vehicle ahead will no longer be
tracked and your vehicle may accelerate to the set speed).
¾ Slippery roads such as icy or snow-covered roads and unpaved 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 Two-wheeled vehicles such as motorcycles or bicycles are ahead.
¾ Slopes with a steep gradient (The vehicle ahead may not be detected correctly, your vehicle
may slip while stopped by the stop hold control, or it may accelerate suddenly after it starts
moving.)
¾ Driving under bad weather conditions (rain, fog, and snow).
¾ Tires of a different specified size are used, such as a temporary spare tire.
¾ Tires with insufficient tread are used.
¾ The tire pressures are not adjusted to the specified pressure.
¾ The vehicle is being used to tow a camper or boat trailer.
¾ Tire chains are used.
¾ The vehicle is driven on roads with lane lines other than white (yellow) lines, such as an
expressway.
Do not get out of the vehicle while the stop hold control is operating.
Getting out of the vehicle while the stop hold control is operating is dangerous as the vehicle
may move unexpectedly and result in an accident. Before getting out of the vehicle, switch the
TJA off, apply the parking brake, and then shift the selector lever to the P position.
CAUTION
Heed the following cautions so that the TJA can operate normally.
¾ Turn the system off when the vehicle is running on a chassis roller.
¾ Do not modify the vehicle's suspensions.
¾ Always use wheels of the specified size for the front and rear wheels. Consult an Authorized
Mazda Dealer for tire replacement.
NOTE
The headway control does not detect the following as physical objects.
Vehicles approaching in the opposite direction
4-162
When Driving

Pedestrians
Stationary objects (stopped vehicles, obstructions)
If a vehicle ahead is traveling at an extremely low speed, the system may not detect it
correctly.
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 TJA.
Do not use the TJA under conditions in which close proximity warnings are frequently
activated.
If it is necessary to accelerate for a lane change or the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly
causing you to close in on the vehicle rapidly, accelerate using the accelerator pedal or
decelerate using the brake pedal depending on the conditions.
While the TJA is in use, any intended engine braking does not occur even if you shift the
selector lever. If deceleration is required, lower the vehicle speed setting or depress the
brake pedal.
While braking by the TJA control is operating, you might hear an operation sound,
however, this does not indicate a problem.
The brake lights turn on while braking by the TJA control is operating, however, they may
not turn on while the vehicle is on a down slope at the set vehicle speed or traveling at a
constant speed and following a vehicle ahead.
Under the following conditions, the TJA may not be able to detect white (yellow) lines or
vehicles ahead correctly and the TJA may not operate normally.
The forward sensing camera (FSC) cannot recognize the area in front of the vehicle due
to soiling or fog.
The white (yellow) lane lines are less visible because of dirt or paint flaking.
White (yellow) lane lines or vehicles ahead are less visible because of bad weather
(rain, fog, or snow).
The vehicle is driven on a temporary lane or section with a closed lane resulting from
construction where there might be multiple white (yellow) lane lines, or they are
interrupted.
The camera picks up an obscure line, such as a temporary line being used for
construction, or because of shade, unmelted snow, or grooves filled with water.
The road surface is wet and shiny after rain, or there are puddles on the road.
Heavy luggage is loaded in the luggage compartment or on the rear seat causing the
vehicle to tilt.
A vehicle in front of your vehicle is running near a white (yellow) lane line making it

NOTE
If a vehicle ahead is detected while traveling at a constant speed, the vehicle-ahead
indication is displayed and headway control is performed. Additionally, when a vehicle
ahead is no longer detected, the vehicle-ahead indication turns off and the system
switches back to travel at constant speed.
The lowest possible speed which can be set on the TJA is 30 km/h (19 mph).
Headway control is not possible if the vehicle ahead is driving faster than your vehicle's
set speed. Adjust the system to the desired vehicle speed using the accelerator pedal.
When the ignition is switched OFF, the system status before it was turned off is
maintained. For example, if the ignition is switched OFF with the TJA operable, the TJA
remains operational the next time the ignition is switched ON.

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) & Lane Departure
Warning System (LDWS)*
The LAS & LDWS alerts the driver that the vehicle may be deviating from its lane and it
provides steering assistance to help the driver stay within the vehicle lanes.
The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) detects the white lines (yellow lines) of the vehicle
lane in which the vehicle is traveling and if the system determines that the vehicle may
deviate from its lane, it operates the electric power steering to assist the driver's steering
operation. The system also alerts the driver by activating a lane departure warning sound,
vibrating the steering wheel, and indicating an alert in the display. Use the system when you
drive the vehicle on roads with white (yellow) lines such as expressways and highways.
Refer to Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) on page 4-259.
Forward Sensing
Camera (FSC)
WARNING
Do not rely completely on the LAS & LDWS:
¾ The LAS & LDWS is not an automatic driving system. In addition, the system is not designed
to compensate for a driver's lack of caution, and over-reliance on the system could lead to
an accident.
¾ The detection ability of the LAS & LDWS is limited. Always stay on course using the steering
wheel and drive with care.
Do not use the LAS & LDWS in the following cases:
The system may not operate adequately according to the actual driving conditions, resulting
in an accident.
*Some models.
4-177

¾ Driving on roads with tight curves.
¾ Driving under bad weather conditions (rain, fog, and snow).
¾ Slippery roads such as ice or snow-bound roads.
¾ Roads with heavy traffic and insufficient distance between vehicles.
¾ Roads with no white (yellow) lane lines.
¾ Narrow roads resulting from road construction or lane closures.
¾ The vehicle is driven on a temporary lane or section with a closed lane resulting from road
construction where there may be multiple white (yellow) lane lines or they are interrupted.
¾ Vehicle is driven on roads other than expressways and highways.
¾ The tire pressures are not adjusted to the specified pressure.
¾ The vehicle is being used to tow a camper or boat trailer.
¾ Tires of a different specified size are used, such as an emergency spare tire.
CAUTION
Heed the following cautions so that the LAS & LDWS can operate normally.
¾ Do not modify the suspensions.
¾ Always use wheels of the specified type and size for the front and rear wheels. Consult an
Authorized Mazda Dealer for tire replacement.
NOTE
When the turn signal lever is operated for a lane change, the LAS & LDWS is
automatically disabled. The LAS & LDWS becomes operational again when the turn
signal lever is returned and the system detects white (yellow) lane lines while the vehicle
is being driven normally within its vehicle lane.
If the steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal is operated abruptly and the
vehicle moves close to a white (yellow) line, the system determines that the driver is
making a lane change and the LAS & LDWS operation is temporarily canceled. The LAS
& LDWS becomes operational again when the system detects white (yellow) lane lines
while the vehicle is being driven normally within its vehicle lane.
If the vehicle deviates from its lane repeatedly within a short period of time, the LAS &
LDWS may not operate.
When white (yellow) lane lines are not detected, the LAS & LDWS does not operate.
Under the following conditions, the LAS & LDWS may not be able to detect white (yellow)
lane lines correctly and it may not operate normally.
