Acura doesn't yet offer a reverse sensing system, but one can add a third-party one. Some members here have installed the Poron system. Search for "poron" and those threads are available.

Such systems will help avert tragedies, though driver vigilence is the key.

This reminds me the story of garage door coming down and killing small children even with that sensor gadget on the floor. I think it is parent's responsibility, pure and simple.
