Honda Develops World's First 'Collision Mitigation Brake System' (CMS) for Predicting Rear-end Collisions and Controlling Brake Operations To be installed in upcoming Inspire, in combination with "E-Pretensioner" seatbelt retraction mechanism.


Tokyo, May 20, 2003 --- Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced today it has developed the world's first Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMS), which predicts rear-end collisions and assists brake operation to reduce impact on occupants and vehicle damage. This system determines the likelihood of a collision based on driving conditions, distance to the vehicle ahead, and relative speeds, and uses visual and audio warnings to prompt the driver to take preventative action. It can also initiate braking to reduce the vehicle's speed. The new system will be installed in the new Inspire scheduled for release in June of this year, in combination with the "E-Pretensioner," which retracts the seatbelt in anticipation of impact.
