Collision Mitigation Braking System
Collision Mitigation Braking System

To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the AcuraWatch Plus Package features the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)61.

  • Powered by a combination of radar transmitter and forward-facing camera, the CMBS determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead.
  • If you do not take action to reduce speed, the CMBS begins light braking.
  • When the system senses that a frontal collision is unavoidable, even if no prior alerts have been given, strong braking is automatically applied to help reduce the impact velocity and collision force.
  • The goal of the CMBS is to alert the driver to apply the brakes. While the system assists, it is not expected to avoid every potential collision on its own.
