Leadership in Future Technologies

Honda engineers are developing “pre-collision” safety technology to support drivers’ efforts to prevent collisions before they occur.

Today, there are more demands than ever on the driver’s attention to the road and reaction time. So Honda introduced the world’s first Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) utilizing millimeter wave radar technology to help detect the possibility of a collision.

Visual and audio warnings and an automatic tug of the seat belt alert the driver to take action. If a collision cannot be avoided, and even if no prior alerts have been given, front seat belts are automatically retracted and braking force is automatically applied to reduce the vehicle’s speed to help mitigate the effects of the collision. The system made its American debut on the 2006 Acura RL, and is now featured on other Acura models, as well as the Honda FCX Clarity.
