What It Is and How It Works

AKA: Automated Emergency Braking System

WHAT IS IT?

Autonomously stops a vehicle or dramatically slows it in an emergency braking situation to reduces the effects of rear-end collision.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Typically part of an ACC system, front CMBS uses radar, laser, cameras or a combination of all three to scan the road ahead. When the system determines that your vehicle is closing on another at an unsafe speed, it automatically applies the brakes – gently at first, and then ups the pressure to get the car stopped.
