OnGuard Active to Sense Stationary Objects in Lane Ahead

Though the driver can’t see the “car,” OnGuard Active’s radar can, and the system brakes the truck to a stop. Higher road speeds might have meant a collision, but damage would’ve been less than if the truck hadn’t slowed at all. Thus “mitigation” rather than “avoidance.”

Meritor Wabco’s OnGuard radar-based collision mitigation system will react to stationary objects as well as slower moving objects in an enhanced version that will be available early next year.
