Main Features

Rear crashes are one of the most common types of crashes. Thanks to Forward Collision Warning, many of these common accidents can be reduced. A few important features include:

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

How Does FCW Work?

The Forward Collision Warning, or FCW, system scans the road ahead of you and detects a possible collision with a slower moving or stopped vehicle. Once the sensors located at the front of your car detect an obstacle, this system them will alert you through multiple warnings in the form of:

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