To reduce injury to the driver and passengers as much as possible, this technology helps vehicles avoid collisions and minimizes damage when a collision cannot be avoided.
This technology uses a laser sensor to help the driver avoid colliding with a vehicle or an obstacle ahead when driving at low speed in the city or in slow traffic. When there is a risk of a collision occurring, but the driver fails to perform any operation to avoid it such as applying the brakes, SCBS automatically activates the brakes and reduces the engine output at the same time. In this way, SCBS helps avoid or mitigate the damage from low-speed collisions, which are the most common type of accidents with other vehicles. The SCBS system also includes Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission, which helps avoid unintentional acceleration that could be caused, for instance, by depressing the accelerator instead of the brake pedal in a parking area. The CX-5 is equipped with SCBS.
