The importance of flexibility in truck maintenance, ADAS in truck winterization plans
Winterization requires fleets to consider advanced technology, including ADAS for safe driving.
A retrofittable Level 2 automated driver assistance system ride along
Automated driver assistance systems tend to get lumped together with monikers like “active lane keep assist” and “adaptive cruise control,” but the reality is that all ADAS systems have subtle operational differences that can make a big impact on a truck driver over thousands of miles. The best way to understand those differences is to
The service needs of heavy-duty truck ADAS
The implementation of ADAS technologies has changed the game of fleet operations. With life-saving and collision-preventing features like emergency braking and active lane-keep, the automated system has positively influenced both the drivers and the roads that they drive on. ADAS technology may be changing the way driver’s operate their vehicles, but it’s also changing the
Bendix school bus safety spec’ing tips
The classic yellow school bus is a symbol of safety in America, and for good reason: It is well documented as the safest form of student transportation. Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC offered a glimpse at technologies and training developed to make school bus transportation across North America even safer. ADAS advantage The National Association
The unintended ADAS consequences of seemingly unrelated truck repairs
A truck rolls into a service shop and needs a radiator replaced. The technician dutifully does the job, moving components out of the way, replacing the radiator and putting everything back into place. The truck rolls out, but when the truck rolls under certain overpasses, a shuddering of the active brake assist systems runs through
The evolution of ADAS technology
Technology has been propelling human innovation since our first ancestors picked up a bone and used it as a hammer. It has made our lives easier, safer and more efficient. And when it comes to the trucking industry, technology has improved safety measures by leaps and bounds. OEMs are continuously developing advanced driver assistance systems
