What is Collision Mitigation Braking System™?

Silver Honda CR-V

Found in the Honda Sensing® suite, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is a driver-assist technology sure to provide an added sense of confidence when traveling through Arlington. This advanced system detects a possible front collision and then reduces the likely impact by warning the driver to apply the brakes. With this, not only can you drive safer, but you can worry less when cruising through Memphis.

How Does It Work?

Powered by a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim, this system can determine distance and closing speed of obstacles ahead of you. Whether the obstacle is another vehicle or pedestrian, the radar and high-resolution camera will take in the information it needs to help you avoid a potential accident. Once an object is detected, audio and visual warnings are given to notify the driver to apply the brakes or swerve slightly to avoid the collision.

What Are the Stages When Danger is Detected?

When a possible collision is sensed, there are three stages that the CMBS™ can deploy. These stages include:

  • Stage 1: Driver is alerted through visual and audio warnings of an oncoming obstacle ahead.
  • Stage 2: Alongside these warnings, the brakes are lightly applied to slow down the vehicle, helping to avoid a collision.
  • Stage 3: In the next phase, the brakes are applied strongly in order to dramatically reduce your speed.

Hopefully, your attention isn’t so divided as to need the third stage, but it’s there for added peace of mind and extra safety when something else takes up your attention.
