A new partnership will see Nikola’s hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks roll out with with ZF’s OnGuardMax and OnSideAlert safety systems.

Here’s what ZF says those driver-assistance technologies will do:

  • OnGuardMax autonomously detects, classifies and reacts to objects, even completely stopping the vehicle, if necessary.
  • OnSideAlert provides blind spot detection to help avoid side collisions.

“We’re pleased to partner with Nikola to integrate these critical safety technologies into their new zero-emission truck and introduce innovative safety technology to the North American marketplace,” explained Dirk Wohltmann, ZF’s director of engineering for the Americas.

“Safety is of paramount importance to Nikola and our customers,” said Pedro Garcia, global head of product development at Nikola, “The ZF products, including the company’s driver-assistance technologies, integrate well into our Class 8 hydrogen fuel cell electric truck platform.”
