To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)61 uses both a radar system and a high-resolution forward camera to recognize hazards such as vehicles or a pedestrian. The system can use up to 80% of full braking power to avoid or reduce impact with the detected object.
- Powered by a radar transmitter mounted in the MDX grille trim, the CMBS determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead.
- The goal of the CMBS system is to alert the driver to apply the brakes. It is not alone expected to brake the vehicle sufficiently to avoid all collisions.
