Honda to add Sensing 360 to US models by 2030

The US application of Honda Sensing 360 is part of a global strategy announced by Honda Motor which will begin in China in 2022.

Honda announced plans to apply the next generation of its advanced suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies – Honda Sensing 360 – to all new Honda and Acura models in the US by 2030.

With an expanded sensory range around the entire vehicle, Honda Sensing 360 removes blind spots to enhance collision avoidance, while also reducing driver burden. The US application of Honda Sensing 360 is part of a global strategy announced by Honda Motor which will begin in China in 2022. The Acura version of Honda Sensing 360 will use the AcuraWatch system name in North America.

These latest safety advances reflect a global vision announced by Honda global CEO Toshihiro Mibe in April 2021, to strive for both zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and automobiles globally by 2050 and carbon-neutrality for its products and corporate activities by 2050.

Since the US introductions in 2014 of Honda Sensing in the 2015 CR-V, and AcuraWatch in the 2015 TLX, application of these advanced safety and driver-assistive systems has expanded throughout the lineups. Today, nearly 6m vehicles on US roads have the  technology.

“Honda Sensing 360 represents the next major step in what has already been an industry leading application of safety and driver assistive technologies,” said Gary Robinson, assistant vice president of product planning at American Honda Motor.

The technology in the systems has continued to evolve, and the new Honda Sensing 360 will further advance their capabilities with an omni-directional sensory range made possible by the integration of inputs from five advanced millimetre wave radar units around the vehicle, in conjunction with a monocular camera similar to that already used by the current systems.
