New Warning System For Freightliner Trucks
Meritor WABCO announced that its OnLane lane departure warning system is available for immediate orders as an option on Freightliner Cascadia and Freightliner Cascadia Evolution trucks. The system, powered with SafeTrak technology by Takata, is a forward-looking, vision-based lane departure warning system designed to monitor road markings and the vehicle’s position in the lane. The system delivers distinct and separate audible warnings to the driver if the vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally, encouraging the use of turn signals.
OnLane also provides a feature called driver alertness warning (DAW), which detects erratic or degraded driving based on lane weaving and provides a warning to the driver.
The OnLane lane departure warning system is a one-box system integrating a camera and electronics. Vehicle alerts and warnings can be transmitted to fleet management systems through a telematics system. In addition, OnLane can be equipped as a retrofit solution to existing fleet vehicles in addition to OEM line build.
