WABCO Holdings Inc. has introduced an integrated Active Lateral Safety technology suite. The new suite, which will be available later this year, integrates the company’s active steering technology with two Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to establish what the company refers to as a “cocoon of safety” around the vehicle.

“By combining these technologies into an integrated safety package, we have extended the benefits of active steering to two of the most common critical events leading to accidents—drifting out of the desired travel lane and failing to detect a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO’s president for the Americas.

The new Active Lateral Safety suite consists of three safety solutions from WABCO: Active steering system featuring a Sheppard hydraulic power steering gear equipped with magnetic torque overlay technology; OnLaneAssist active lane keeping assist system; and OnSideAssist blind spot assist system.
