Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems said it is continuing its series of ride-n-drive vehicle demonstrations at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga. on Sept. 14. Sessions are scheduled at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to demonstrate the company’s Active Safety Systems technologies and are open to fleets of all sizes, owner operators, and truck and trailer dealers.
Demonstration vehicles will be equipped with the following Meritor WABCO Active Safety Systems technologies:
SmartTrac Stability Control System – a suite of anti-lock braking, automatic traction control and stability control systems that can assist the driver in maintaining control of the vehicle in response to an impeding loss of directional or roll stability.
OnGuard Collision Safety System – a forward-looking radar-based collision safety system that detects objects in a vehicle’s path and automatically de-throttles the engine and applies the engine and service brakes when it senses a possible rear-end collision.
“For more than 20 years, Meritor WABCO has demonstrated its legacy of providing the commercial vehicle industry with the opportunity to experience active safety system benefits first-hand,” said Mark Melletat, director of Trailer Systems and Operations, Meritor WABCO. “Last year, nearly 1,000 customers attended the Meritor WABCO demos.”
