The Honda Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), included in the Honda Sensing™ suite, is a sensor technology that alerts the driver of a potential collision and automatically applies the brakes when necessary. Below we explore the benefits of this driver-assist feature and how it helps keep Newburyport drivers safe on their daily commutes.


How Does CMBS™ Work?

CBMS™ uses a radar transmitter to determine how close other objects are to your moving vehicle. Whether it’s a pedestrian or another car, the high-resolution radar transmitter, attached to the grill trim, will deliver the necessary visual and audio information to the driver to help prevent a collision. If the driver does not react in time, the system will apply the brakes or veer slightly to avoid impact.

How is Danger Detected?

CMBS will activate at three stages of detection which include:Stage 1: The system deploys visual and audio warnings to alert you to brake or move away from an oncoming object.
Stage 2: In addition to these warnings, the driver-assist technology lightly applies the brakes to help you slow down and avoid hitting the obstacle.
Stage 3: If the driver doesn’t take the appropriate action, the brakes are applied strongly in order to significantly reduce the speed of the vehicle.
