  • Driver Assistive Technologies

    With the ultimate aim of a zero-collision society, Honda has deployed its Honda Sensing® and AcuraWatch® suites of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies in more than one million vehicles on U.S. roads.

  • AWARD-WINNING NEXT-GENERATION AIRBAG

    Our world’s first passenger front airbag conceived by Honda engineers in Ohio is a major leap forward, designed to cradle and protect the head to reduce the chance of severe brain trauma associated with angled frontal collisions. This new airbag is featured in both the 2021 Acura TLX and 2022 Acura MDX.

  • FIGHTING COUNTERFEIT AIRBAGS

    Honda has led an industry-wide bipartisan effort to enact laws in 26 states that prohibit the trafficking of counterfeit airbags. That means more than half of America is now protected against these dangerous and potentially lethal counterfeit airbags.

  • Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Design

    All model year 2008 and newer Honda and Acura vehicles feature pedestrian injury mitigation design features such as breakaway wiper pivots and collapsible hood hinges, totaling more than 10 million vehicles purchased by U.S. customers to date (except the S2000 which was discontinued in MY2010).

  • Innovation in Injury Prevention

    Honda has broadened the scope of its effort to mitigate pedestrian injuries by developing the third generation pedestrian dummy, POLAR III, to study lower back and upper leg injuries which are common in collisions between a pedestrian and a minivan or SUV.

Connected Vehicle Technology

Seeking innovative solutions to enhance vehicle safety, Honda is a member of the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership to further develop the application of Dedicated Short Range Communication in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technology. These applications warn drivers of potential hazards coming from vehicles that cannot be seen. In conjunction with the U.S. Department of Transportation, Honda is participating in the Connected Vehicle Safety Pilot Driver Acceptance clinics held nationwide to assess how drivers accept and respond to the safety technology.

    Honda Demonstrates Advanced V2P and V2M Safety Technologies
    Honda demonstrated two experimental safety technologies aimed at reducing the potential for collisions between automobiles and pedestrians and between automobiles and motorcycles. First, Honda R&D has successfully demonstrated the ability of a car equipped with Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology to detect a pedestrian with a DSRC enabled smartphone. The other, Honda's Vehicle-to-Motorcycle (V2M) technology can determine the potential for a collision between a DSRC equipped motorcycle and automobile. Honda’s press release has more.
