Bendix has expanded its hydraulic brake parts line for light to medium-duty import and domestic trucks
WASHINGTON, DC – A new field study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents some of the impressive safety capabilities of collision avoidance systems (CAS), while keying in on the false activations still prevalent in the relatively young technology.
The June 2016 paper, Field Study of Heavy-Vehicle Crash Avoidance Systems, tracked 169 drivers over the course of a year. Drivers used trucks equipped with either the Meritor WABCO OnGuard system or the Bendix Wingman Advanced CAS system, both of which hit the market in 2013.
“Overall, CAS technologies show potential for significant safety benefits for commercial vehicle drivers,” the study concluded. “However, refinements to the technology could be implemented to address potential issues with false activations. Testing procedures for curved roads and overhead objects could help reduce false activations and improve the reliability of individual components of the CAS technology.”
