As we discussed in a previous blog, Daimler Trucks North America’s new Detroit Assurance package has come over from Europe to wow truck drivers stateside with its safety innovations. On November 14, DTNA demonstrated the system’s capabilities to showcase the new technology it is using and will be incorporating into the Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution models starting in early 2015. Read on to find out more about Detroit Assurance and what stood out in this month’s demo!
The safety features of the Detroit Assurance Package have been described as the stepping stones towards a future of fully-autonomous vehicles. While we may not be quite there yet, Detroit Assurance does include a number of technologies that will no doubt be incorporated into those types of trucks one day. A highlight of the safety system is its collision-mitigation system, designed to prevent accidents with an active brake assist control. Likewise, the package’s land departure warning camera can stop accidents from happening and keep drivers safe while on busy roadways.
By using “smart” trucks such as ones equipped with the Detroit Assurance system, drivers will have their own safe practices augmented. In emergency situations, this system has the potential to save lives, and the increased safety also means decreased risk to your truck fleet investment as a whole. With their continued commitment to improving the trucking industry as a whole, DTNA is bound to implement this system and ones like it into many different models for years to come.
