What Is a Collision Mitigation Braking System?

2019 Honda Civic Sedan Collision Mitigation Braking System
 
The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is a driver-assist technology that’s included in the Honda Sensing™ suite. This technology detects a possible front collision and reduces the likely impact by sending warnings to the driver to apply the brakes. With this, not only can you drive safer, but you can worry less when cruising through Newark.

How Does It Work?

This system is powered by a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim in order to 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. Then, visual and audio 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?

There are three stages that the CMBS can deploy when a possible collision is detected. These stages include:

  • Stage 1: Visual and audio warnings are given to alert the driver of an oncoming obstacle ahead.
  • Stage 2: With these warnings, the brakes are lightly applied to slow down the vehicle, helping avoid a collision.
  • Stage 3: Along with these warnings, 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.
