Daimler Trucks' Collision Mitigation System

original a4ce9Daimler Trucks North America's Detroit Assurance 4.0 collision mitigation system includes Adaptive Cruise Control and Active Brake Assist 4.0. ACC helps drivers maintain a safe, continuous following distance and can be adjusted to following distances between 2.4 and 3.6 seconds. The system is radar-based and always on. Its bumper-mounted radar tracks the distance from the front of the truck to other vehicles in its path. When a truck gets too close to another vehicle, the driver first receives an audible alarm with visual warning, followed by partial braking, and finally full active braking, where the system slows the truck using the transmission, engine brake and service brakes.
