No stop­ping Daim­ler

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

DAIM­LER re­cently de­liv­ered the 10,000th Mercedes-Benz truck with an Ac­tive Brake As­sist sys­tem. It ac­ti­vates the brakes when it de­tects an im­mi­nent col­li­sion with the rear of a ve­hi­cle ahead and the driver fails to re­act. Af­ter some re­luc­tance by op­er­a­tors to take up the sys­tem, it’s now gain­ing more ac­cep­tance. Help­ing the cause is the recog­ni­tion by in­sur­ance com­pa­nies of its safety ben­e­fits through dis­counts on pre­mi­ums.
