What Is Forward Collision Warning?

A helpful driver assist system, Forward Collision Warning will alert you when it detects a potential collision with the car in front of you. Learn more about how this system can add an extra level of confidence to your Jackson-area commute in this guide from Patty Peck Honda. Then visit us to see how it works behind the wheel of a new Honda model today!

How Does FCW Work?

By scanning the road ahead of you, the Forward Collision Warning system can detect a possible collision with a slower-moving or stopped vehicle. When the sensors detect a potential collision, the system will alert you through multiple warning such as:

  • Sounds
  • Vibrations
  • Quick brake pulsing
  • Visuals
  • Mixture of signals

Having these alerts could save you from having an accident that can cause harm to both you and your vehicle.

Main Features of the FCW System

Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of crashes, and a driver assist system like FCW can help reduce the chance that you are involved in such an accident. The main features of the Forward Collision Warning system include:

  • Scanners that can read up to 500 feet ahead, scanning over 20 times per second
  • Detection of vehicles, bicycles, and motorbikes
  • Works well in all weather conditions, and just as effectively at night
  • Allows for up to 5 seconds of reaction time
