Safety is a big deal. To Mazda, improving driving safety is done in 3 ultimately different areas: people, roads and infrastructure, and vehicles. They strive to inform and educate people about safety, do their part to improve traffic issues, and develop and produce safe vehicles. Mazda's developing safety technology has flourished and done very well. i-ACTIVSENSE, Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), and Driver Attention Alert (DAA) are just a few of the many advancements Mazda has to offer. 


To make their vehicles safer, Mazda created a technology called i-ACTIVSENSE. This technology uses a combination of radars and cameras to detect possible safety hazards surrounding your vehicle. i-ACTIVSENSE is equipped with other tools that can prevent crashes all together, or if a crash cannot be prevented, decrease the seriousness of injuries and damage. 


Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC)

This technology uses millimeter wave radar to read how far away and how fast the car directly in front of you. By processing this information, the MRCC then adjusts your vehicle speed and following distance accordingly.  

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

Driver Attention Alert was made to decrease the number of crashes caused by drowsiness and exhaustion. This technology works by noting patterns in the driver's behavior once 40 miles per hour is reached. These behaviors are to be compared with current driving styles to watches for changes.  If irregular patterns are found and fatigue becomes a concern, the vehicle will alert you to pull over at a rest stop before an accident occurs. 

These 3 advanced technologies are just a snippet of the long list of safety programs Mazda offers. To learn more or to check it out yourself, come by Young Mazda in South Ogden, Utah in Northern Utah. Think Young. Drive Young.
