WABCO will supply Altec with its OnGuardActive technology, a radar-based active safety system that offers collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control (ACC).

Altec is among the first truck equipment manufacturers (TEM) to offer medium-duty vocational trucks equipped with OnGuardActive in the United States, the company noted.

WABCO and Altec collaborated on integration of the OnGuardActive system to create customized front bumper designs (for example, those incorporating a recovery winch), a common requirement of customers in the industries Altec serves. These installations comply with WABCO’s factory performance criteria and calibration.

By providing audible, visual and haptic warnings, OnGuardActive detects moving, stopped or stationary vehicles ahead and measures the vehicle’s position in relation to others to warn and alert the driver of a potential rear-end collision, WABCO says. When necessary, the system will apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision.
