Mazda safety aim

MAZDA has begun testing new safety technology for future models on a specially adapted MPV, with full speed range adaptive cruise control, new headlamp technology and a pedestrian warning system.

The adaptive cruise control system includes braking control and will bring the vehicle to a standstill if required, while the headlights adapt according to road conditions and steering angle. The pedestrian warning assesses the distance between the car and obstacles in front by laser and uses visual and sound prompting for the driver to reduce the risk of collision.

It also predicts rear-end collisions by detecting the distance and the speed of a following vehicle and tightens the seatbelt to reduce the risk of whiplash injuries.
