Key technologies included in Honda exhibit

Honda SensingTM:

Honda's safety and driver-assistive system which includes various functions such as a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Safe SwarmTM:

Safe Swarm is a technology concept aimed at realizing safe and smooth traffic flow through vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure data sharing. For instance, Safe Swarm enables drivers to avoid collisions when they enter intersections with poor visibility and prevents traffic congestion by assisting drivers to merge and change lanes at the appropriate speed and timing.

Data service for vehicles equipped with Honda Mobile Power Pack:

By collecting data from Honda's portable and swappable battery, Honda Mobile Power Pack, the service provides users, via dedicated smartphone app, with information about the locations of battery swapping stations where fully-charged Mobile Power Packs are available.

Motorcycle theft deterrent system based on digital terrestrial broadcasting carrier:

Using a carrier wave for digital terrestrial broadcasting, the system sends the ID of the Bluetooth tags attached to stolen motorcycles to the participating vehicles on the road. When participating vehicles detect the tags in question, they send location information to the system, which will work as a deterrent against motorcycle theft. Honda participated in a project to conduct a preparatory survey in South American countries to verify a security system which utilizes digital terrestrial broadcasting carrier. This is a project contracted to NTT DATA Corporation by Japan's Ministry of
Internal Affairs and Communications and conducted in Brazil.

Elderly and children tracking system:

A communication device mounted on vehicles on the road and street lights tracks Bluetooth tags held by elderly and children and notifies respective family members of location information. Kakogawa City in Hyogo, Japan has installed and is currently operating this system within the city.
