Has anyone tested the Collision Mitigation Braking System - CMBS

Hey Gang,
Any videos of the CMBS auto breaking feature for the 2017 CRV in action? (Collision Mitigation Braking System) Wife won't let me test it with another car :)

Please add a question mark in your subject line. Otherwise, you're implying that you have info to add rather than that you're seeking it.

I know the three CRVs that I test drove worked fine. And my wife used all those features with great glee when we took our only highway drive in our own CRV. Also see:

Wow, that video made me nervous. driving down the road at better than 60 mph, with a camera in hand that he turns everywhere while still going forward. Bad driving, surprised he wasn't pulled over. Then again, I didn't see any police cars on his drive. I'm glad I'm not on the same roads as him.

I think the key thing to remember is that it's called a mitigation system, not avoidance. Honda is only saying that it will make a collision less severe, they're not promising it will avoid a collision. But if anyone feels like crashing in to some cardboard boxes and uploading a video, it would be awesome to see it in action.

Yes, was thinking the same thing myself when I first read about the technology.

Mitigation: the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something.

These are driver assist/support systems. Learn to use them slowly. I have them on my 16 and recommend that you learn the other features of the car first.
Note the system reacted quicker than I did to a major wreck on the interstate in front of me. It hit the brakes solidly until I took over the braking control/management.

It works with ACC and cruise on but I found it doesn't work without cruise. All I get is a 'brake' or beep, regardless of distance setting.

That is lawyer speak to cover their butts for the 1 time in 1000 it doesn't work as intended.

My 2016 would stop so effectively it was amazing. I changed for a 2017 and cannot say the same ... just the brake light comes on. I am also noticing the blind spot mirror giving a false reading of a car when none are around - not impressed with the 2017

I don't think it works head for head on.
LOL ? I guess not! Unless by some chance the other car is running an anti collision system also.
