What is Honda Traffic Sign Recognition?

  • Honda Traffic Sign Recognition TSR Slider

The Honda Sensing® suite plays host to many different advanced safety features and driver-assist technologies, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Not only do these groundbreaking Honda Sensing features keep South Dakota roadways safer, but they also come standard equipped on nearly every new Honda vehicle. With all this being said, the staff at Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls would like to introduce you to the latest addition to the Honda Sensing suite: Traffic Sign Recognition or TSR.

What does TSR do?

While your Honda vehicle travels forward, Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) can detect road signs such as posted speed limits and display information about them on the dashboard and/or Head Up Display (when equipped). Plagued by expensive traffic tickets on I-90, I-29, or I-229? How about some of South Dakota’s busiest streets and highways? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reminder? TSR can help!

How does TSR work?

What you’re probably wondering is how does Honda’s Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) work? As you drive forward in your Honda vehicle, a camera located behind the rearview mirror will capture posted road signs and TSR will then display the detected sign’s icon within the Driver Information Interface and/or Head Up Display until your vehicle reaches a preset distance and time. Although the technology behind this driver-assist technology is very sophisticated, using it is simple.

Does TSR have any limitations?

Just like any driver-assist technology, Honda’s Traffic Sign Recognition has a few limitations as they relate to your vehicle. TSR can be affected by the following conditions:

  • The exterior of your vehicle’s windshield is obstructed by snow, dirt, mud, leaves, etc.
  • The inside of your windshield is fogged up.
  • There are sections of the windshield that need to be cleaned for visibility.
  • The lenses of your headlights are dirty or they need to be readjusted.
  • A modified suspension or heavy load is causing your vehicle to tilt.
  • An irregular wheel or tire condition.
    • Improperly inflated tire, wrong sized wheel or tire, compact spare tire, etc.
