On the Spot... Detroit Active Brake Assist 5.0 [Video]
Detroit Assurance 5.0 from Daimler Trucks can now bring a truck to a complete stop in order to avoid a collision or at the worst, minimize the severity of the impact. Active Brake Assist 5.0 uses camera and radar technology to detect moving and stationary objects, including pedestrians and cyclists, in front of the truck and can deploy full braking to a full stop. Equipment Editor Jim Park shares this demonstration of Active Brake Assist 5.0 from Las Vegas where it was launched in January 2019.
