What is Collision Mitigation Braking System™?

2020 Honda Insight Touring

If you’re looking for a new vehicle in Brockton that offers innovative safety and driver-assist features, you might have come across The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™). The CMBS™, a driver-assist feature included in the Honda Sensing® suite, provides drivers with a possibly life-saving alert. Available on vehicles like the Accord, the CMBS™ detects a possible front-end collision and sends an alert to the driver to apply the brakes, reducing the likelihood of an impact. Learn more about how the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ works with Silko Honda. 

How Does CMBS™ Work?

How do driver-assist features in the Honda Sensing® suite work? The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ is operated by a radar transmitter inside the grille trim that measures the distance and closing speed of obstacles ahead of you on Hanover roads. The high-resolution camera can also determine whether the obstacle is a vehicle or pedestrian and will give you the information you need to avoid an accident. Both visual and audio warnings will notify you to apply the brakes or swerve to avoid the obstacle.

CMBS™ Stages

When a potential obstacle is detected in North Attleboro, the CMBS™ has three stages of warnings:

  • Stage 1: When the CMBS™ senses a possible collision, the first stage is both visual and audio warnings to alert the driver.
  • Stage 2: Then, the brakes are lightly applied to slow the vehicle.
  • Stage 3: Finally, the brakes are strongly applied to forcefully reduce your speed.

Typically, a driver’s attention isn’t so distracted that the third stage is needed, but it’s included for extra safety in case something takes your attention away from the road.
