Detroit Active Side Guard Assist improves safety during low-speed turns

Detroit announced the addition of Active Side Guard Assist (ASGA) to the Detroit Assurance suite of safety systems to improve safety in low-speed, passenger-side turns. Planned for production beginning Sept. 1, ASGA detects moving objects in the path of a right-hand turn at speeds below 12 MPH and applies the brakes, which improves safety at intersections and in truck yards and freight terminals.

Detroit Assurance with Active Brake Assist 5 (ABA 5) uses always-on, fused radar and camera technology to monitor the road and mitigate potential collisions. The Side Guard Assist option was originally launched in 2020 to detect and warn the driver of moving objects along the length of the passenger side of the truck, but does not provide braking. With ASGA, when the side-mounted radar detects a moving object, such as a pedestrian or bicyclist, along the length of the passenger side of the tractor, the driver receives a yellow warning triangle in the right side A-pillar. If the driver sets a right-hand turn signal or begins a right-hand turn, the yellow warning triangle turns red, an audible alarm sounds and braking engages.

ASGA is an option on Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star trucks equipped with Detroit Assurance with ABA 5, including the newly released Freightliner eCascadia. Detroit Assurance with ABA 5 is the industry’s most comprehensive suite of safety systems and includes features such as Active Speed Intervention, Active Brake Assist 5, Brake Hold Mode, Adaptive Cruise Control to 0 MPH, Active Lane Assist and others.
