Collision Mitigation Braking System | Erin Mills Acura

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)

The CMBS uses a radar transmitter to determine the distance and closing speed of the vehicle or object in front of you and is designed to react accordingly when a programmed threshold is exceeded. If speed is not reduced, CMBS is engineered to gently pull your seat belt and automatically begin light braking. If it determines an impact is unavoidable, it is designed to automatically apply strong braking to help reduce speed and mitigate the force of the collision.
