Mazda 2: Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

Mazda2 DJ 2014–2020 Owners Manual / When Driving / i-Activsense / Smart City Brake Support (SCBS)

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system is designed to reduce damage in the event of a collision by operating the brake control (SCBS brake) when the system's laser sensor detects a vehicle ahead and determines that a collision with a vehicle ahead is unavoidable.

It may also be possible to avoid a collision if the relative speed between your vehicle and a vehicle ahead is less than about 20 km/h (12 mph).

In addition, when the driver depresses the brake pedal while the system is in the operation range at about 4 to 30 km/h (2 to 18 mph), the brakes are applied fi rmly and quickly to assist. (Brake Assist (SCBS brake assist))

WARNING

Do not rely on the Smart City Brake Support System (SCBS) as a substitute for safe driving: The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system cannot compensate for unsafe and reckless driving, excessive speed, tailgating (following another vehicle too closely), and driving on slippery roads such as wet, snowy, and icy roads (reduced tyre friction and road contact because of water on the road surface). You can still have an accident.

Do not rely completely on the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system:

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system is only designed to reduce damage in the event of a collision. Over reliance on the system leading to the accelerator pedal or brake pedal being mistakenly operated could result in an accident

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is a system which operates in response to a vehicle ahead. The system may not be able to detect or react to two-wheeled vehicles or pedestrians.

The laser sensor for the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system is installed near the rearview mirror. To assure the correct operation of the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS), heed the following cautions.

Do not modify the suspension: If the vehicle height or inclination is changed, the system will not be able to correctly detect vehicles ahead. This will result in the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system not operating normally or mistakenly operating, which could cause a serious accident.

Turn off the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) when the vehicle is running on a chassis roller or being towed: Turn off the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system to prevent mistaken operation when the vehicle is running on a chassis roller or being towed. See the next page on how to turn off the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS).

Refer to Stopping The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) System Operation on page 4-128 .

CAUTION

NOTE

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system will not operate if the driver is deliberately performing driving operations (accelerator pedal and steering wheel).

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system will operate under the following conditions.

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) detects a vehicle ahead by emitting a nearinfrared laser beam and receiving the beam refl ected off the refl ector of the vehicle ahead, and then using it for the measurement. Consequently, the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) may not operate under the following conditions:

Under the following conditions, the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system may not operate normally.

In the following cases, the laser sensor may inadvertently determine that there is a vehicle ahead and the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system may operate.

(Manual transaxle)  If the vehicle is stopped by the SCBS operation and the clutch pedal is not depressed, the engine stops.

Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) Indicator Light (Red)

If the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is operating, the indicator light (red) fl ashes.


Automatic Brake Operation Display (Vehicles With Active Driving Display)

“SCBS Automatic Brake” is displayed in the active driving display while the SCBS brakes or the brake assist (SCBS brake assist) is operating.


NOTE

Stopping The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) System Operation

The Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system can be temporarily deactivated.

When the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system is turned off, the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) OFF indicator light turns on.


When the engine is restarted, the system becomes operational.

Without SCBS OFF switch

Refer to Personalisation Features on page 9-13 .
