What Is Forward Collision Warning?

Honda Accord Honda Sensing


Forward Collision Warning is an advanced driver assist feature that can alert you before a possible collision. This system can be useful when you become distracted at the wrong time on the Warwick or Goshen roads. Find out what this system can do for you with Middletown Honda then visit us to test it out in a new Honda model today!

How Does FCW Work?

The Forward Collision Warning system, or FCW, can detect a possible collision with a slower moving or stopped vehicle by scanning the road ahead. Sensors located at the front of your car scan for obstacles and, if detected, this system will alert you through multiple warnings in the form of:

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

These features give you extra time to respond to help you avoid a potential collision. This can not only protect you, your passengers, and your vehicle, but it can save in expensive repairs down the road.

Main Features

Some of the most common types of crashes are rear crashes. And, with a standard feature like the FCW system, these can be reduced. Some aspects of the Forward Collision Warning system Goshen drivers should be aware of include:

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