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.
