Road Departure Mitigation System
Honda’s Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) is a safety feature which is available with the Honda Sensing package. This system uses a camera in the windshield to detect if the vehicle is going to cross its lane markings. It activates at speeds of 72-145 km/h, and if the turning signal isn’t being used while the vehicle is approaching the edges of its lane. RDM has the ability to alert the driver, with a visual cue, on the screen behind the steering wheel. If the driver fails to take action, RDM can try to keep the vehicle in its lane with the use of steering torque, and vibrating the steering wheel.
Turning RDM on or off: Press the RDM button, found to the left of the steering wheel. The button will have a green light when RDM is on.
Changing RDM settings: Put the vehicle in Park, and go to the Home screen on the main dashboard. Then, select “Settings”. Next, press “Vehicle”, and choose “Road Departure Mitigation Setting”. There are three settings to choose from.
- Normal: this is the default mode. RDM will control the steering wheel from inside the lane’s edge
- Wide: RDM will control the steering wheel from outside the lane’s edge
- Warning Only: RDM will only display a visual warning, on the screen behind the steering wheel
