Forward Collision Alert technology is a driver assistance system that is designed to help reduce the chances of a potential collision. It does this by using a combination of sensors, cameras, and algorithms to detect objects in the front of the vehicle that may lead to a collision.

When the system detects a potential collision, it will alert the driver with visual, audio, and/or tactile warnings. This allows the driver to take action and avoid a possible collision. This technology is increasingly becoming more common in new cars as a way to help improve safety on the roads.
