Collision Mitigation Breaking System
Honda’s Collision Mitigation Breaking System (CMBS) is a unique safety feature which is found in the Honda Sensing package. It uses radar and a camera on the windshield to scan the road ahead of you for obstacles. If a pedestrian or other car is detected, the CMBS will try to reduce the severity of an unavoidable crash.
CMBS uses auditory, visual, and tactile alerts to tell the driver that they are at risk of a collision. If the driver does not respond, the CMBS will reduce the vehicle’s speed. CMBS activates when the speed difference between your vehicle, and the obstacle infront of you is between 3mph and 62mph, with a chance of a crash. When it activates, it goes through three stages:
- Visual and auditory alerts are activated, and the steering wheel will vibrate to tell the driver that they are at risk of crashing
- Visual and auditory alerts are activated, with light brake application
- Visual and auditory alerts, with strong brake application
If the driver does not act upon hearing stage 1 of the CMBS alert, the system will move on to stage 2. If the crash is still unavoidable, it will move on to stage 3.
