Mazda 2: i-Activsense

i-ACTIVSENSE is a collective term covering a series of advanced safety and driver support systems which make use of detection devices such as the forward sensing camera (FSC) and radar sensors. These systems consist of active safety and pre-crash safety systems.

These systems are designed to assist the driver in safe driving by reducing the load on the driver and helping to avert collisions or reduce their severity. However, because each system has its limitations, always drive carefully and do not rely solely on the systems.

Active Safety Technology

Active Safety Technology supports safe and assured driving by helping the driver to recognise potential hazards and avert accidents. The following systems incorporate the Active Safety Technologies that support the driver's awareness and safe driving.

Driver awareness support systems

Nighttime visibility

High Beam Control System (HBC)

Forward/rear detection

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) System

Rear obstruction detection when leaving a parking space

Rear Cross Traffi c Alert (RCTA)

Driver Support System

Adjustable Speed Limiter

Pre-Crash Safety Technology

Pre-crash safety technology is designed to assist the driver in averting collisions or reduce their severity in situations where they cannot be avoided.

The following systems adopt the pre-crash safety technology.

Collision damage reduction in low vehicle speed range

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

Detection Devices

Forward sensing camera (FSC)

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) determines the conditions ahead of the vehicle while travelling at night and detects traffi c lanes. The following systems also use the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC).

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) is installed at the top of the windscreen near the rearview mirror.

Refer to Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) on page 4-129 .

Laser sensor

The laser sensor emits a near-infrared laser beam and receives the beam refl ected off the refl ective surface of a vehicle or obstruction in front, and the detected beam is then used for measurement. The laser sensor is used for the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system.

The laser sensor is installed at the top of the windscreen near the rearview mirror.

Refer to Laser Sensor on page 4-131 .

Radar sensors (rear)

The radar sensors (rear) function by detecting the radio waves refl ected off a vehicle approaching from the rear or an obstruction sent from the radar sensor. The following systems also use the radar sensors (rear).

The radar sensors (rear) are installed inside the rear bumper, one on the left and right sides.

Refer to Radar Sensor (Rear) on page 4-133 .

The Traction Control System (TCS) enhances traction and safety by controlling engine torque and braking. When the TCS detects driving wheel slippage, it lowers engine torque and operates the brakes to prevent loss of traction. This means that on a slick surface, the engine adjusts automatic
