Mazda CX-5 to debut Smart City Brake Support system

Home » International News » Mazda CX-5 to debut Smart City Brake Support system

Mazda has announced that the upcoming CX-5 SUV arriving this spring will debut a Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system, which helps a driver to avoid a frontal collision when driving at low speeds in the city or in slow traffic.

The system uses a laser sensor to detect a vehicle or obstacle in front and automatically reduces the extent of the brake rotor travel to quicken braking operation. If the driver fails to perform any operation to avoid a collision, such as applying the brake, SCBC automatically activates the brakes and reduces the engine output at the same time. Not exactly new hat, the tech, but it is for the brand, and the CX-5 will be the first to wear it.

In related tech news, the company has announced the development of a new resin that offers the same rigidity as conventional materials, with the result being that less material is needed to make a part, while offering the same structural integrity.

Jointly developed with Japan Polypropylene Corporation, the new resin thus offers a lighter manufactured part. It’s set to feature as material in the production of front and rear bumpers, where it contributes to a weight reduction of approximately 20%.

The company blended two components found in polypropylene and rubber (the constituents of resin) that have different properties, and succeeded in distributing them in a double-layer structure in line with the required function for the surface and the inside of the base bumper material. The net result is a bumper with an inner section that retains high rigidity and impact absorption, with reduced thickness.

Additionally, the use of the material also offers faster build times. In the production process, the reduced thickness allows for a shorter cooling period for molding, and bumper molding time, previously 60 seconds, will be halved to 30 seconds utilising the resin, leading to major reductions in the amount of energy consumed in the production process. Needless to say, the resin will be used for the CX-5’s bumpers.

MAZDA: Mazda to Feature Smart City Brake Support Advanced Safety Technology in All-New Mazda CX-5 Crossover SUV | News Releases

HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has developed an advanced safety technology called Smart City Brake Support (SCBS), which helps a driver to avoid a frontal collision when driving at low speeds in the city or in slow traffic. The SCBS system will be available in Mazda's all-new crossover SUV, the Mazda CX-5, to be launched this spring(1).

The SCBS system uses a laser sensor to detect a vehicle or obstacle in front and automatically reduces the extent of the brake rotor travel to quicken braking operation. If the driver fails to perform any operation to avoid a collision, such as applying the brake, SCBC automatically activates the brakes and reduces the engine output at the same time. In this way, SCBC helps to avoid collisions or mitigate the damage from rear-end collisions at low speeds, which are the most common accidents with other vehicles. The SCBS system also includes Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission(2), which helps avoid unintentional acceleration that could be caused by depressing the accelerator instead of the brake pedal.

Details of functionality

  • Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) When driving from approximately 4 - 30km/h, a laser sensor mounted at the top of the front windshield glass detects a vehicle or obstacle in front of the car and reduces brake rotor travel to quicken braking when the system calculates that there is a risk of a collision occurring. Next, if the driver fails to perform any avoidance maneuver such as applying the brake, an automatic braking operation is activated. When the speed difference between the driver's car and the vehicle in front is less than 30km/h, the system is designed to avoid, or mitigate the damage from a collision.
  • Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission If a driver accelerates when an obstacle in front has been detected by the SCBS' laser sensor, the system alerts the driver with an alarm sound and an indicator. At the same time, engine output is curbed to stop unintended acceleration.

Mazda is intensifying its safety-related research and development efforts, aiming for the ultimate goal of realizing an accident-free and safe motorized society. Mazda intends to extend its advanced safety technologies, such as SCBS, to upcoming new models, starting with the Mazda CX-5, to provide all customers with driving pleasure together with outstanding environmental and safety performance.

  • * Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission systems are designed to minimize damage from accidents and alleviate the burden of driving, based on the premise that the driver is driving in a safe manner. Please be aware that the performance of the system may be impacted by road conditions, weather conditions, the state of the vehicle and driving conditions.
  • (1) Availability varies by market.
  • (2) Acceleration Control for Automatic Transmission is only available in the Japanese market.
