New Honda Advanced Technologies Featured in the New 2013 Accord – Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning

Press Release : 2013 Honda Accord Overview
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) - Offered in the all-new 2013 Honda Accord

The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) are among the latest advanced technologies from Honda which are offered in the all-new 2013 Honda Accord to maintain comfortable and convenient driving as well as to help drivers be aware of changing driving conditions.

Designed to function at speeds between 10mph and 100mph Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is intended to alert the driver to traffic conditions in front of the vehicle.  A digital camera system mounted behind the windshield monitors the road and senses objects in front of the vehicle.  If the gap between the detected objects and the driver’s vehicle becomes too small, audible and visual warnings will alert the driver.  The FCW stops alerting the driver when the car is steered out of the way.  The FCW is included on the new 2013 Accord EX-L, Touring Sedan and EX-L Coupe models

Using the same digital camera as the FCW, the Lane Departure Warning System (LDW) monitors the road ahead of the vehicle, searching for lane markings.  If the LDW is able to sense lane markings, it compares the position of the vehicles to those markings and feeds the information from the camera into the processing unit, where lane deviation detection can take place.  If the driver strays from a recognized lane, they will be alerted by both audible and visual warnings.  The alerts disappear when the drivers uses the turn signals.  The LDW is included on the new Accord EX-L and Touring models.
