What Is Collision Mitigation Braking System™?

The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is one of the advanced driver-assist technologies included in the Honda Sensing™suite. CMBS™ can detect and help divert a possible front-end collision by sending a warning to the driver to apply the brakes. Find out how the Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can make your Loveland-area commute safer in this guide form Honda of Greeley.

How Does the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ Work?

This system features a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim which can determine the distance and closing speed of obstacles ahead of you. The radar and high-resolution camera can detect vehicles as well as pedestrians, and will send visual and audio warnings to notify the driver to apply the brakes.

What Are the Stages When Danger is Detected?

There are three stages that the CMBS™ can deploy when it detects a potential collision: 

  • Stage 1: Visual and audio warnings are given to alert the driver of an oncoming obstacle ahead.
  • Stage 2: Along with these warnings, the brakes are lightly applied to slow down the vehicle, helping to avoid a collision.
  • Stage 3: In addition to the warnings, the brakes are applied strongly in order to dramatically reduce your speed.

You should always have your attention focused on the road when driving, so hopefully the third stage is never needed, but knowing it’s there can add peace of mind on the roads in and around Longmont. 

Other Honda Sensing™ Features

In addition to CMBS™, the Honda Sensing™ suite also includes an array of other innovative safety and driver assist systems, including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Helps to maintain a safe following distance to the car in front of you.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS): Will detect a potential collision with the vehicle ahead of you and automatically apply the brakes if needed.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Automatically adjusts steering to keep the vehicle within its lane. 
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Can detects road markings and alert you if your vehicle starts to leave the road.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): Detects and reads road signs, and relays the information to you.
