What Is The Acura Collision Mitigation Braking System?

The Collision Mitigation Braking System from Acura is an advanced safety system designed to prevent or reduce the effects of a forward collision. By combining an array of frontal radar sensors and a high-resolution forward camera, the Acura Collision Mitigation Braking System can drastically reduce the chances of a frontal collision, at both city and freeway speeds.

The vast majority of vehicular collisions occur at the front of a vehicle, especially in traffic. With so many modern distractions, these incidents can only go up. Thanks to the Acura Collision Mitigation Braking System, however, these numbers can be significantly reduced. And since this system is so finely-tuned, it can detect both vehicles and pedestrians, too.

How The Acura Collision Mitigation Braking System Works

By analyzing data from the front radar sensors and the high-mounted video cameras, the Acura Collision Mitigation Braking System can help detect vehicles and pedestrians early, and alert the driver quickly. If such a hazard is detected, the system will first emit a visual and audible alert, giving the driver time to apply the brakes or swerve to avoid a collision. If speeds are higher, light brake application may be automatically applied to help even further. If a collision is deemed likely, the system will automatically apply up to 80% of the maximum braking force, to hopefully prevent or at least significantly reduce the effects of a collision.
