Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE Safety Technology

Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE technologies form a host of advanced safety features to keep Manteca and Stockton drivers out of harm’s way. Utilizing devices such as milliwave radars and cameras, they form multiple layers of protection, recognizing potential hazards, averting collisions, and maintaining your awareness of the road around you.

Adaptive Front Lighting (AFS) System

Providing a well-illuminated field of view is one of the most important factors in increasing driver safety. That’s why select Mazda vehicles feature an i-ACTIVSENSE Adaptive Front Lighting system.

The system links your front lights to your front wheels, meaning that your low beams turn in concert with your steering. When navigating tight corners, Manteca and Lanthrop drivers will always be able to see the way ahead clearly, and an auto-leveling function creates a stable distribution of light.

Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC)

This innovative safety technology automatically adjusts your cruising speed to account for the vehicle ahead. It works just like normal cruise control, but uses state-of-the-art radars to detect vehicles ahead of your and measure their velocity.

Should the distance between your two vehicles become unsafe, the system will reduce speed to compensate, and then bring you back up to your preselected cruise setting. At the same time, an integrated Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS) displays the distance to keep you aware of this safety consideration.

High-Beam Control (HBC) System

Driving with high beams activated is a vital step when you’re traversing unlit roads, but cycling between high and low to account for incoming cars can be tiresome — in some situations, you may fail to make the switch at all, temporarily impairing the vision of the driver approaching you.

This puts both vehicles in jeopardy, but i-ACTIVSENSE technology will automatically switch to low beams when it detects the taillights of a car in front or the headlights of an oncoming cars. The system even switches to low beams when it registers that you have entered a brightly lit area or in other situations in which high beams are not required.

Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM)

Your i-ACTIVESENSE Rear Vehicle Monitoring System (RVM) employs a rear bumper-mounted quasi-milliwave radar to gauge the distance between your vehicle and those either approaching from the rear or in neighboring lanes, providing an alert if merging or changing lanes will present a danger of collision.
This pioneering new system is able to work even at low speeds, so it’s just as useful while navigating the city streets as it is while cruising the highway.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Driving long distances along a straight and unremarkable highway can cause even the most careful driver to begin to lose focus and deviate from their chosen lane.
Luckily, Mazda vehicles fitted with the Lane Departure Warning System will have their position on the road constantly monitored. Should they begin to move out of their lane without indicating, an audible warning will alert them. This technology also sounds an alert when drivers attempt to merge or change lanes without signaling.




Front Object Warning

Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW)

The Forward Obstruction Warning system uses a millimeter-wave radar to detect vehicles or obstacles in front of the vehicle. Its state-of-the-art technology will then automatically calculate the distance to that object; if the car gets close enough to present a risk of collision, an alarm will sound and a visual alert will be provided.

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Smart Brake Support (SBS)

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident, and Mazda has stepped in to reduce their likelihood. The Smart City Brake Support system is designed to help drivers avoid frontal collisions while driving at slow speeds.
Between approximately 2 – 18 mph, a laser sensor mounted on the windshield gauges the distance to the car in front. If there is a risk of collision, it prepares the brake system to deliver maximum stopping power. Should the driver not apply the brakes, the system will apply them while reducing engine output.




Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission

Automatic transmissions present a slight risk: it is possible to step on the accelerator instead of the brake. Should this unintentional pedal operation occur, this system will detect that the accelerator has been pressed down more than a prescribed amount. It will then check the vehicle’s sudden acceleration by reducing engine output.
