Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
The RL's Collision Mitigation Braking System helps reduce the likelihood of rear-ending the vehicle ahead by alerting the driver before the collision occurs. Powered by a radar transmitter mounted behind the RL grille, a signal is constantly transmitted and the return signal is evaluated, determining the distance and closing speed of vehicles that lie directly ahead. When a collision is considered unavoidable, the CMBS system takes steps to minimize the severity of the collision. CMBS works automatically without any driver input, but can be shut off if the driver prefers.
