What Is Collision Mitigation Braking System™?

The driver-assist technology within the revolutionary Honda Sensing™ suite helps drivers keep their passengers safe on the road, and the Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) feature is no exception. CMBS™ can help avert a front-end collision by sending the driver warnings to apply the brakes. Bob Boyte Honda is here if you’re ready to make your family safer on Madison roads thanks to the Collision Mitigation Braking System™. Whether you’re driving a Honda Civic or Honda CR-V, you can sleep peacefully at night knowing your main mode of transportation is among the safest on the road.

How Does CMBS™ Work?

A radar transmitter mounted to the grille trim of your Honda keeps track of the distance between you and obstacles, even other cars and pedestrians, ahead of you. If CMBS™ system detects a potential collision, it will give you visual and audio warnings and potentially even assist you in braking.

What Are the Stages When Danger is Detected?

There are three different stages within the CMBS™ system that will deploy if danger is detected:

  • 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.

Hopefully, the third stage is never needed. Focused drivers should rarely, if ever, experience it. With that said, knowing it’s there is added peace of mind on your Clinton commutes.

Other Honda Sensing™ Features

The driver-assist and safety features of the Honda Sensing® suite, available on many new 2019 Honda models, put safety first. Some of the other features include:

  • 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.
