Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM (CMBSTM) Can assist you when there is a possibility of your vehicle colliding with a vehicle or a pedestrian detected in front of yours... The CMBSTM is designed to alert you when a potential collision is determined, as well as to reduce your vehicle speed to help minimize collision severity when a collision is deemed unavoidable... How the system works

Page 6

The camera in the CMBSTM is also designed to detect pedestrians... However, this pedestrian detection feature may not activate or may not detect a pedestrian in front of your vehicle under certain conditions... Refer to the ones indicating the pedestrian detection limitations from the list...

Page 7

The system has three alert stages for a possible collision... However, depending on circumstances, the CMBSTM may not go through all of the stages before initiating the last stage...

Page 8

When the CMBSTM is activated, it will continue to operate even if the accelerator pedal is partially depressed... However, it will be canceled if the accelerator pedal is deeply depressed...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow Helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and a set following interval behind a vehicle detected ahead of yours and, if the detected vehicle comes to a stop, can decelerate and stop your vehicle, without you having to keep your foot on the brake or the accelerator... When ACC with Low Speed Follow slows your vehicle by applying the brakes, your vehicles brake lights will illuminate...

Page 16

When not using ACC with Low Speed Follow: Turn off adaptive cruise by pressing the MAIN button... This also will turn off the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)...

Page 17

When driving at about 25 mph (40 km/h) or above: Take your foot off the pedal and press down the RES/+/SET/ switch when you reach the desired speed... The moment you release the switch, the set speed is fixed, and ACC with Low Speed Follow begins... When driving slower than about 25 mph (40 km/h): If the vehicle is moving and the brake pedal is not depressed, pressing the switch fixes your set speed to about 25 mph (40 km/h) regardless of current vehicle speed... If your vehicle is stationary, you can set the vehicle speed even with the brake pedal depressed...

Page 18

When you use ACC with Low Speed Follow, Straight Driving Assist (a feature of the Electric Power Steering system) is activated... By enabling the steering system to automatically compensate for natural steering pull, Straight Driving Assist makes it easier for you to keep your vehicle in a straight line...

Page 19

There is a vehicle ahead ACC with Low Speed Follow monitors if a vehicle ahead of you enters the ACC with Low Speed Follow range... If a vehicle is detected doing so, the ACC with Low Speed Follow system maintains or decelerates your vehicles set speed in order to keep the vehicles set following-interval from the vehicle ahead...

Page 20

When you depress the accelerator pedal You can temporarily increase the vehicle speed... In this case, there is no audible or visual alert even if a vehicle is in the ACC with Low Speed Follow range... ACC with Low Speed Follow stays on unless you cancel it...

The front camera behind the rearview mirror monitors left and right lane markings (in white or yellow)... If your vehicle is getting too close to detected lane markings without a turn signal activated, the system, in addition to a visual alert, applies steering torque and alerts you with rapid vibrations on the steering wheel, to help you remain within the detected lane...

Never apply a film or attach any objects to the windshield, the hood, or the front grille that could obstruct the cameras field of vision and cause the system to operate abnormally... Scratches, nicks, and other damage to the windshield within the cameras field of vision can cause the system to operate abnormally... If this occurs, we recommend that you replace the windshield with a genuine Acura replacement windshield... Making even minor repairs within the cameras field of vision or installing an aftermarket replacement windshield may also cause the system to operate abnormally... After replacing the windshield, have a dealer recalibrate the camera... Proper calibration of the camera is necessary for the system to operate properly...
