What Is Collision Mitigation Braking System™?

A 2020 Honda Accord with collision mitigation braking system

The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is a driver-assist technology that is part of the Honda Sensing™ safety suite. CMBS™ can detect a potential front end collision and reduce the likely impact by sending warnings to the driver to apply the brakes. Learn more about how this innovative technology can provide peace-of-mind on your Miami Lakes commute in this guide from Honda of Aventura.

How Does It Work?

CMBS™ features a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim to determine the distance and closing speed of obstacles ahead of you. Whether the obstacle is another vehicle or a pedestrian, the radar and high-resolution camera will help you avoid a potential accident. 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 CMBS™ can deploy when a possible collision is detected. These stages include:

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

Your attention shouldn’t be 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.

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 detect 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.
